Citrix Ready / ControlUp: User Experience & The Future Of Work

Starting in the early 90s, Citrix established themselves as the key solutions provider that pioneered secure remote access, to securing app delivery on different endpoints. In the 2000s, this evolved into enabling enterprise mobility. Here in 2019, the company is on a mission to create a true digital workspace that addresses the pain point/demands of end-users and IT admins.

Our world has been transformed by technology. There are now more devices and applications in the enterprise. So what does this mean for the future of work? Citrix Workspace is aimed at changing the way people work in the new workforce. The goal of the Citrix Workspace and the Workspace with intelligence was unveiled at Citrix Synergy 2019 and ensures end-users are using technologies that make them more productive.

What does this mean for you and your business? I have joined forces with Citrix Ready to interview Citrix partners and learn how together they are building the future of work. On today’s episode, I interview Nitin Sharma from Citrix and Trentent Tye from ControlUp.
