One the events Citrix Benelux is organizing is Citrix Solution Day. The 2017 edition took place on the 5th of October 2017 in Barneveld. In this blog I wrote down my experiences of this day.

The official program started on 9:00 with four breakout sessions. Unfortunate for those speakers traffic was really worse this day, so many people arrived much later than planned. I also did not make it on time for the first session, but that gave some time to talk with some suppliers and several community members.

After the first breakout sessions it was time for the first keynote. The session opening was done by Peter van Leest. Peter started with thanking sponsors and the platinum partners. After that Jeroen Pat from TBI came on stage explaining how they are using Citrix technology in their company (BIM AutoDesk). A nice story about the challenges they had in their infrastructure (Dropbox usage, compliancy, work anywhere) and which solutions they used (Azure N-series, Citrix Cloud, ShareFile, RES Service Store). Also, a good thing that he showed the environment live on stage in a real live environment. Next on stage was Isabel Moll of Microsoft about the collaboration with Citrix with the Digital Transformation. According to Isabel Microsoft is transforming as well with transform their applications ready for the digital transformation (Office 365, Private/Public Cloud, Mobile, XenDesktop Essentials, XenApp Essentials, Azure). Next and last speaker of this keynote is Christian Reilly. Christian started off with the world is changing (and the way we work) and continued with the cloud adoption, followed by mobility (IoT), artificial intelligence and cyber security. Christian did a quick step back about application usage and how line of business is running SaaS apps without CIO/IT knowing this.  Citrix is aiming to productivity with the Secure Digital Workspace, the single pane of glass Citrix Workspace Server (all applications from once place, probably end of this year available in Citrix Cloud). Also Citrix is working on Secure Digital Perimeter (Gateway as a Service, WebApp Firewall as a Service, SD-Wan as a Service). The session ended with topics Unified Endpoint Management and Citrix Analytics Service.
