Citrix named in top nine work coordination platforms

17 Feb 2020

According to Constellation Research, Citrix is among the top platforms companies can use to unify everything they need to be productive.

It has been named to the 2020 Constellation ShortList for Work Coordination Platforms, an annual evaluation designed to help companies select the right technologies to drive their digital transformation goals.

Employees today have more ways to connect and collaborate and flexibility and choice in the applications and devices they use to get work done than ever before. 

“With the rise of digital communications and mass collaboration services such as team chat apps and enterprise social networks, today’s employees face new challenges trying to keep up engagement with an increasing number of colleagues and customers,” says Constellation Research vice president and principal analyst Dion Hinchcliffe.

“Work Coordination platforms aim to help alleviate these challenges by bringing structure, prioritisation and accountability to work by helping employees better organise and optimise their productivity and effectiveness.”

The 2020 Constellation ShortList evaluated 20 vendors across 18 criteria, including:

  • Administrative controls
  • Analytics
  • Application development
  • Automation/workflow
  • Business operations
  • Business partner ecosystem
  • Client access options
  • Collaborative features
  • Compliance
  • Deployment options
  • Ease of adoption and usage
  • Licensing options
  • Integration with other tools and business platforms
  • Security

Citrix is among the nine “Solutions to Know” as identified by Constellation and noted for being “not a place to just have conversations, but instead manage and execute the projects and business processes that are key to a company’s business success.”

“We are pleased to be recognised by Constellation as a solution companies can rely on to remove the complexity from work and create a highly personalised experience that enables employees to be their most productive,” says Citrix product marketing vice president Calvin Hsu.

Citrix Workspace is a unified, secure and intelligent work platform that offers an improved employee experience by organising, guiding, and automating activities.

With Citrix Workspace companies can provide personalised access to systems, information and tools that their employees need in a single experience and dynamically apply security policies based on a user’s behavior and environment so they can work when, where and how they want with confidence that their applications, information and devices are safe.

Citrix recently appointed a new area vice president for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

Keith Buckley will report to Colin Brookes, senior vice president of sales and services for Asia Pacific and Japan, Citrix.

Based in Sydney, he will be responsible for driving Citrix’s 2020 ambitions to boost employee experiences through intelligent workspaces, and delivering consistent growth across all sectors in both markets.

Buckley brings leadership experience and knowledge of cloud, security and the channel, having held senior operational and sales positions at Riverbed, McAfee, Symantec and Dell. 

He succeeds Erin Butler, who will return home to the United States to pursue a new opportunity as customer success for America East with Citrix.
