Citrix Synergy 2016 – Day 1
After two days of unbelievable but also exhausting CTP meeting days Citrix Synergy is really starting. The day starts logically with a general keynote. Just as the last years I will blogging my experiences of Citrix Synergy on a daily basis.The keynote was opened by Tim Minaham Citrix CMO. Tim started with some general remarks followed by the three candidates for the innovation awards. Tim introduces Kirill Tatarinov Citrix CEO on stage. Kirill started with a small history of his career, followed by the four important pillars according to Kirill (Cloud, Mobile, Big Data Analytics, IoT). Kirill is describing the transformation of Citrix to a solution company.
We are getting to the major annoucnements by Kirill: XenDesktop/XenApp 7.9 and XenServer 7 with Intel Iris Pro GPU support, Citrix HDX Ready Pi, NetScaler CPX, NetScaler Management and Analytics Systems, ShareFile Integration with MS Office 365, ShareFile Rights Management Capabilities, native integration between Sharefile and XenApp/XenDesktop, NetScaler SD-WAN integrated with XenApp and XenDesktop HDX. Next it was time for the first demo. The demo shows the integration of ShareFile with XenApp/XenDesktop, the possibilities of XenMobile Secure Forms and they are touching the HDX Ready Pi as well as the connecting device. The demo continued with logging via the NetScaler Gateway with 2 factor authentication (which did not work unfortunately), but they managed around and starting a Skype for Business session running on a virtualized XenDesktop/XenApp session. Unfortunate the demo failed, because the session did not start. I must admit that the picked up the failure well.
