Citrix Announces Details of Global SMB Partner Program
Back in May 2011 when Citrix announced the acquisition of Kaviza and its all-in-one VDI-in-a-BoxTMsolution to help meet SMB market demand for virtual desktops, we quoted a Gartner study that found “SMB organizations are adopting desktop virtualization at an accelerating rate in order to reduce desktop management costs, improve security and increase business agility. In fact, Gartner research shows that hosted virtual desktops have become the number two driver of new server purchases in SMBs across both North America and EMEA, and number four in Asia Pacific.” In the last eight months, nothing has changed. In fact, new statistics prove that SMB adoption of virtualization technology has hastened. In areport by analyst firm the SMB Group published in December, the company stated, “32% of medium and 17% of small businesses deployed/upgraded desktop virtualization solutions while 29% of medium and 13% of small businesses plan to deploy/upgrade them in the next 12 months.”
While the small and mid-sized businesses that have already deployed the VDI-in-a-Box solution are enjoying the benefits of enterprise-quality desktop virtualization, it is the mission of the Citrix Worldwide Channel team to equip new partners with the necessary skills, products and incentives to capitalize on the demand for SMB virtualization and sell to those companies waiting for the right VDI solution to get started. That is why we are announcing the launch of the Citrix Solution Advisor (CSA) SMB Specialist Program.
