Citrix Synergy 2015: 5 key developments

The company has unveiled a Workspace cloud and numerous updates to its ShareFile platform.


Citrix Synergy is rolling on in Orlando Florida and the company has had plenty to say in the sunshine state.

CBR has compiled a quick roundup of the key developments.

1. Workspace Cloud

This platform is designed to deliver a wide range of IT tools and services, based upon the premise of providing a workspace where Windows apps, web apps, mobile apps, desktops, documents and collaboration come together on whichever device or network is being used.

The cloud based management platform will allow customers flexibility to choose whichever cloud or datacentre resources fit their needs.

Citrix is making the Workspace available to partners and customers to test drive from Tuesday.

2. ShareFile Platinum edition

The platinum edition release is aimed at addressing the need for a solution which goes beyond addressing only mobility needs. This will be available from June and will provide a collaborative workspace to exchange, track, edit and e-sign content without storage limitations.

Building on the collaborative functions in the platinum edition of ShareFile, the company has made it possible to edit any Microsoft Office files from any computer through the platform.
