David Henshall, President and CEO, Citrix, said: "As companies move more to the cloud, they need an easy, secure way to access them anywhere, anytime from any device." "Delivering Citrix Workspace for Google Cloud, we are enabling our customers to accelerate their digital transformation and deliver a simple, intuitive experience for their users."
Rob Enslin, President of Global Customer Operations, Google Cloud, said, "Many of our customers are investing in their cloud future. "In expanding our partnership with Citrix, we can better help them with their transformations, by enabling them to access and run their apps wherever they go, simply and flexibly and securely."
Extending Citrix Workspace beyond Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops for companies using Google Cloud wants to enable them to modernize their apps and deliver unified access across IT devices and operating systems.
Planned interoperability with Google's Cloud Identity, for instance, wants to allow for the seamless authentication of users using G Suite credentials to access Citrix Workspace, which will provide a more secure and unified end-user experience. In addition, the integration of intelligent capabilities into G Suite will enable them to automatically notify employees of their Google calendars through personalized feeds. This will create a simple, intelligent Experience that boosts commitment and productivity by reducing frustration from constantly switching to apps and searching for information.
According to Mari Wasström, IT Solutions Service Management Lead, Neste, "With Citrix and Google Cloud Platform, we have the opportunity to create a compelling work experience that has a tremendous impact on employee satisfaction." "Instead of a solution based on Finland, we now have a global concept that we can deploy to our sites worldwide."
