Citrix Project Chrysalis: Transforming Business for Application ISVs
Application developers are being challenged by their customers and competitors to deliver their desktop or workstation applications as cloud-based services, without compromising usability or security. This leaves developers in a quandary: how do they take their highly valued applications to the cloud — quickly, easily, and securely — and continue to deliver the great customer experience their users expect?
In most instances, the answer is complex, involves significant planning and investment to support transformation of both the technology and business processes, and can take months, if not years. Just a few examples of the challenges faced include:
- Code rewrites and/or new development to support cloud architectures and new delivery models
- Defining & implementing new licensing & billing processes
- Determining the correct infrastructure platform for hosting their service
Added to this, both the application developers and their customers want a simple, transparent, direct engagement model that enables both to have a predictable and scalable experience.
