Transformation Lab


Supporting the "how" of the Desktop Transformation Model, Citrix Consulting will provide real-world use cases demonstrating how to transform an organization's desktop environment. The demonstrations will be presented by experienced experts, who already guided several customers and partners through the desktop transformation successfully and will provide insights into assessing user patterns and applications, creating a high level XenDesktop design, migration of users and more. Thereby, you will be able to follow the desktop transformation process behind the scenes, which will be complemented by endpoint devices at the booth to see the user experience throughout the process on your own. Furthermore, attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the consultants to address questions as well as experience different endpoint device scenarios.

Cisco has been invited to participate in this unique opportunity at Citrix Synergy this year. Please stay tuned for more information regarding Cisco's involvement with the Transformation Lab.
