About Citrix Systems UK Ltd
Powering Digital Transformation
At Citrix, we focus on a single driving principle: making the world’s apps and data secure and easy to access. Anywhere. At any time. And on any device or network.
We believe that technology should be a great liberator. Freeing organizations to push the limits of productivity and innovation. Empowering people to work anywhere and at anytime. And giving IT the peace of mind that critical systems will always be accessible and secure.
That’s why, at Citrix, our mission is to power a world where people, organizations, and things are securely connected and accessible. A place where all business is digital business. A world where our customers are empowered to make the extraordinary possible. We will accomplish this by building the world’s best integrated technology services for secure delivery of apps and data ⎯ anytime, anywhere.
Strategies to achieve our vision
As businesses of all kinds become digital, organizations depend on the ability to create new disruptive business models, new ways to engage employees and customers, and new ways to work. Yet, the complexity and limitations of legacy systems and concerns over security are hindering enterprises from moving fully into the digital future.
We believe there is a better way to power the digital enterprise. To fuel digital transformation and realize our vision, we will focus on four core strategies:
- Become the leader in Workspace as a Service (WaaS) by delivering the industry’s most comprehensive and integrated platform for secure app, data and network delivery as a service in the Citrix Cloud.
- Reinforce our leadership and growth in application delivery, virtualization and mobility.
- Gain a clear leadership position for secure network delivery solutions to enterprises, mid-market and strategic service providers.
- Become the preferred and most-used solution for enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) for business users across all segments.

DCLG Claims 40% Cost Saving from Virtual Desktop Deployment
The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is deploying Citrix desktop virtualisation software and other tools in a move that will save £3m a year while boosting efficiency and flexibility for mobile workers.
As part of a move towards a more agile and cost-effective IT infrastructure, DCLG has deployed Citrix NetScaler Gateway, Citrix XenApp and Citrix XenMobile across its estate in an attempt to give employees mobile access to the apps and data they need to work more efficiently.
The deployment has seen the introduction of a virtual desktop application that enables employees to remotely access XenApp desktops from a range of devices.
"We have saved around 40 per cent on our desktop budget. We used to spend around £7m a year providing PC desktops, and we now spend £4m per year on a better service that users prefer," said Darren Scates, CIO and technology leader at the DCLG”.
It also allows DCLG employees to work offline on their personal devices and supports a BYOD policy that the department describes as "the fastest and least-expensive way to provision a new user". According to DCLG, staff have embraced the new technology and the mobile working it supports, increasing user satisfaction.
