Citrix Synergy in Los Angeles, May 22-24, stands out as an open, inclusive conference where many different opinions are expressed – not just those of Citrix. In that spirit, we are proud to announce an awesome lineup of guest presenters for Synergy breakout sessions. These speakers – and their subjects – were selected through our Call for Topics program. Each made the cut after a rigorous independent judging process.

The chosen presenters include Citrix customers and partners, Citrix Technology Professionals (CTPs) and industry thought leaders such as analysts and consultants. They will share their unique viewpoints on the latest trends related to mobile workstyles, including enterprise mobility, mobile healthcare access and large-scale workplace transformation. They will focus on important technologies such as provisioning services, virtual desktop storage and cloud operations management.

A number of presenters will share their successes with mobility, cloud, virtualization and networking solutions that are delivering important benefits to their organizations. These real-world case studies are always among the most popular content at Synergy.
