Innovative solutions at Synergy
With exhibits from dozens of Synergy sponsors, the Solutions Expo brought together a wide range of technology innovations for mobility, virtualization, networking and cloud that can expand and enhance Citrix solutions. Attendees experienced the most innovative products, technologies and services from leading IT companies through demos and discussions with company representatives, and had the opportunity to consider new possibilities for their IT environment.
Home to multiple product demo stations as well as the Meet the Experts Theater and Ask the Experts Bar, The Citrix Booth Experience was the heart of the Solutions Expo. Attendees met the industry’s most disruptive thought leaders and talked about the hottest IT topics, including how consumerization is changing everything, especially user expectations. They saved their toughest questions for the Ask the Experts Bar—experienced Citrix consultants and architects fielded queries on everything from troubleshooting to best practices.
The Solutions Expo was a favorite gathering place for Synergy attendees, hosting the Welcome Reception as well as the Lunch Table Tech Chats program. Attendees joined their colleagues, made some new connections, and discussed the technology challenges facing their industries.
The Citrix Ready Booth demonstrated how Citrix is partnering with other technology companies to expand the ecosystem of products and solutions that are trusted to work seamlessly with Citrix infrastructure, and offered a peek into the Citrix Ready Marketplace, the largest resource for verified products, trusted solutions and enterprise-enabled apps. Attendees also were able to explore the possibilities in complementary solutions and partnering with Citrix.
The experienced business experts at Citrix Services help customers achieve the highest levels of efficiency, manageability and agility for all their IT services. At the Services Showcase, they showed attendees how to successfully design, deploy and manage Citrix solutions with Education and Certifications and keep their environments running smoothly with the latest troubleshooting tools, resources and product updates.
Formerly the 60in60 Challenge, the Synergy Showdown brought together four teams of industry experts led by our very own Citrix Technology Professionals (CTPs). During this challenge, teams competed to deploy an entire Citrix XenApp infrastructure on Microsoft Azure. The goal? To demonstrate how quickly XenApp could be delivered in the cloud and to be the first to cross the finish line. Attendees cheered on their favorite team and watched CTPs put their smarts to work to win bragging rights…and a trophy!
