  • Intro: From a pure numbers perspective Citrix is hitting on all cylinders. Key Points:In 2011 we generated north of $2 billion in revenue and increased our total employee count to over 7,000 talented and passionate people. We are now a strategic provider of software solutions for more than 200,000 customers and We’ve built a veritable army of business partners and systems integrators to assist you on your journey to the cloud…and beyond. Perhaps just as importantly, we are #1 or #2 in every major market that we serve – from desktop virtualization with the award-winning XenDesktop, to the leading enterprise cloud networking platform – NetScaler. We have also established the early lead in building cloud infrastructure with Citrix CloudStack. CloudStack already powers many of the largest and most successful clouds in the world. And finally, last year served as a real milestone for us in collaboration, with GoToMeeting leap-frogging the competition to secure the #2 spot in web collaboration.Transition:Along the way to all of these great achievements we’ve also acquired approximately 25 companies inthe past 3 years – adding to one of the software industry’s most complete product portfolios. But even in the face of all of this we have held firmly to our core vision and beliefs.
  • Intro:At Citrix, we believe in a world where people can work or play from anywhere. Key Points: We added the word play a few year’s back because we knew that something profound was taking place. Employees were taking control of their own IT. People were beginning to bring their personal devices into the workplace – and you know what – these brave, young digital natives expected them all to work on day one. At Citrix, we couldn’t agree more - Everyone should be able to work whenever and wherever they want on whatever device they choose. Anecdotes/Proof Points: At this point, weave in a personal story about your experience with digital natives – whether your kids, someone at work, etc and how the expectations have influenced business.Transition: Unfortunately, we live in a crazy world.
  • Intro: We have a long history in mobility as a pioneer and leader in remote access. As importantly, we have delivered on device independence – providing access to IT services from any device. This is more critical than ever because consumerization is multiplying the number of devices people use – PCs, smartphones and tablets. Key Points:Mobile WorkstylesMobile workstyles allow people to work anywhere with anyone – collaborating with a high-definition experience that’s "just like being there“.  And, being mobile means data should securely follow the user – enabling simple and secure access from any device. And, of course, there are apps – providing every user with self-service access to any Windows, Web, SaaS, or Mobile app from a universal access point that’s device independent.Cloud ServicesOn the cloud services side, our vision is that Public clouds become more secure & transparent.Private clouds become more flexible & economical. Our goal is to deliver on this promise without being locked into any particular virtual infrastructure or cloud service provider. Powering cloud services starts with a single point of control that unifies the provisioning and security of Windows, web, SaaS and mobile apps through an enterprise storefront. At the back of the private cloud, a bridge to public clouds transparently enables infinite datacenter capacity. Underneath, we enable the build-out of Amazon-style clouds – from basic compute and storage, to end-user apps. And, to deliver cloud services to mobile users is an app-aware network that’s high performance, secure, and always available. This is a foundational piece for providing secure access to on-demand IT services over private or public networks to any device.Transition: This isn’t just talk, we’ve actually built tailor-made solutions, to help make this work for any organization.
  • Intro:I hope this helped you learn a bit more about Citrix and our belief that IT services can be delivered with greater security and agilityTransition: Not only creating more business value..
