Citrix Synergy 2012: What’s Your Work Style?

May 3, 2012 - 0 Comments

Five years ago, if someone asked if you wanted to BYOD, chances are you would have gently (or not so gently) corrected them, Don’t you mean “B?” In the ever-changing workplace, employees demand that work flex to their style.

Cisco VXI

Join Cisco at Booth 202 at Citrix Synergy San Francisco, Moscone Center. We will exhibit how Cisco can help turn your desktop virtualization, bring-your-own-device (BYOD), and cloud initiatives into strategic investments that deliver an uncompromised service with greater efficiency, flexibility, and security.

Unable to join in person this year? Follow #citrixsynergy and #powerofU for show highlights. Rumor has it @ciscoDC will be there tweeting in person. Bonus points if you can spot them. Double bonus if you say hello (hint: they bear no resemblance to the logo).
