Citrix Synergy of the Rockies

So you’ve heard of Citrix Synergy but your boss wouldn’t let you go to San Francisco or Barcelona to attend this year? Well you’re in luck then, because Lewan is bringing Synergy to you! Our 2nd annual Citrix Synergy of the Rockies will be held on October 24th from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm at the DU Cable Center. At this event we’ll be covering highlights from both Synergy San Francisco and Barcelona. Find out what Citrix has been up to in the last year, what they’re doing with the acquisitions they made, and the big changes that have occurred in the Desktop Virtualization space. We have a very special keynote from Citrix’s VP of Business Technology Solutions who spearheaded the rollout of Citrix’s own BYOD program. We’re also leaving plenty of time for several deep-dive technology sessions with Lewan’s own deployment engineers. If you are a Citrix customer, investigating desktop virtualization, looking at solutions in the market, or considering a BYOD program you must make time to attend this event!

All of the details and information on where to signup is below.

The “Post-PC” Era is about the “Workspace”

What Would Dan Do?

I’ve heard a lot of discussion in the last two weeks since VMworld 2012 San Francisco about Horizon Suite, View, Horizon Data, etc… how they’ll be combined or replace each other, which one is the broker, blah blah blah..and what I can’t help but scream to myself is, “You’re missing the point!”. What I believe VMware showed at VMworld with their Horizon Suite is the new “Workspace”. Citrix CloudGateway is this same new “Workspace”. So let me explain a bit.

The Windows desktop (literally the desktop screen) has been our workspace since the days of Windows 95 and it hasn’t changed much in the time since, even with Windows 8 on my laptop the desktop is still my primary screen. The reason that the Windows desktop hasn’t changed much is because it works well for the average user. It’s where we put shortcuts to recently used applications, saved documents we…
