Citrix Launchpad Series Announced to Accelerate Cloud Transformation Journeys
Citrix Launchpad Series has arrived. The new Citrix Launchpad Series consists of a series of Cloud-centric announcement programs pertaining to developments in three major fields of Cloud computing, Information Security, and Workplace management. The global tech company and leading IT enabler, Citrix is hosting three Launchpad programs to enrich the current business and IT operations management practices, helping customers to reorient their approach towards Cloud transformation journeys.
Due to the pandemic, CIOs have tried to redefine the critical KPIs and benchmark standards of IT operations management (ITOM). Recent security attacks on IT infrastructure, exploding workplace demands due to remote communications, and the rise of Virtual Machines (VMs) are all considered as the major disruptors in the ITOM marketplace. In fact, Gartner recently pointed out how companies around the world are adopting new-age standards of agility with Hybrid Digital Infrastructure Management (HDIM) to cope with the emerging challenges in the ITSM businesses. Citrix Launchpad Series aligns with what Gartner forecasted for the ITOM industry.
As companies switch to Hybrid Working models, it’s become absolutely inevitable for IT teams to create an agile infrastructure, which can only happen if CIOs and IT teams are aware of the requirements commonly associated with new approaches to Business Intelligence and IT ops. Citrix is focusing on the specific domains to accelerate the Cloud transformation journey with the Citrix Launchpad Series. The Series explains the critical aspects of IT administration and networking, IT environment productivity, and customer experience management. With the optimized deployment and analytics-driven monitoring of IT tools and applications, any IT team can stay productive and engage in digital workspaces, even during challenging times, such as those brought about by a pandemic, a cyber security incident, or conventional IT modernization.
As part of the announcement, Citrix will host three Launchpad programs — Cloud, Security, and Work.
These are highly effective engagements meant for Cloud customers who are looking to accelerate their Cloud transformation journey to meet the modern demands of hybrid workplace culture. These would be live-streamed on LinkedIn Live.
Citrix Launchpad: Cloud
This will be the first of Launchpad Series programs, to be aired on LinkedIn Live on September 28
Focus areas would be how Citrix is helping to speed IT modernization for their IT and Cloud customers.
Citrix would also launch a series of latest innovations in DaaS and app delivery and security. These innovations would help customers ‘seamlessly’ switch to modern-day Hybrid environments with minimum effort on security and infrastructure management.
Citrix Launchpad: Security
Next in line is a series on Cloud security in hybrid environments. To be aired on October 5, Citrix plans to highlight the common challenges associated with IT ops and how to smartly tackle these with zero trust solutions and contextual security applications.
Citrix Launchpad: Work
Finally, on October 12, Citrix would line up for a Work-centric program, distinguishing its innovations for the modern-day workspace. It would also spell out all the possibilities involved in the use of Citrix Workspace and Wrike for building a highly empowered, employee-centric engagement model, driven by analytics, automation, and reporting tools.
At the time of this announcement, Tim Minahan is the executive vice president, business strategy and chief marketing officer (CMO) at Citrix, wrote: “The events of the last 18 months have accelerated timelines around cloud migration, forced organizations to ramp up security to protect expanded attack surfaces, and empowered employees with digital tools to help them adapt to new ways of working and succeed. The virtual Citrix Launchpad Series will give you insights into the latest Citrix innovations that will help you best position your organization to manage this ongoing change and enable your employees to thrive.”
