Citrix: Delivering Business Value with Partners like Nutanix
While we’ve talked about how successful #Citrix Synergy was with customers and partners this year, a lot of attention has – understandably – focused on our expanded partnership with Microsoft, which will simplify IT for our joint customers. But that wasn’t the only story. We also showcased other partners like our good friends at Nutanix, who combine Citrix innovation with their technology to empower IT to move faster, AND reduce costs, which also helps extend Citrix value to the midmarket. So, when #Nutanix hosted its .NEXT Conference last month in Las Vegas, Citrix was there. We had a booth near the main entrance – right next to Nutanix – where visitors could see Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop running on Nutanix appliances. You could also find key executives from my team delivering breakout sessions at .NEXT. In fact, one of our VPs, Steve Wilson, was so popular that you couldn’t find a seat in his session. Nutanix also had Sridhar Mullipudi who heads up product management for XenApp and XenDesktop, join their breakout session called Citrix Recommends, along with Raghu Nandan and Mark Hindle from Nutanix.
