Covid Collaboration

The coronavirus crisis, with its on-again, off-again work-from-home mandates, encouraged Citrix and Microsoft to expand their long-standing alliance.

“We have been partners for a very long time,” Fuller said. “We’re just moving things along, as [Covid-19] clearly accelerates how we are going to be driving our customers to the cloud.”

The global outbreak has heightened enterprise demand for flexible infrastructure that can be accessed from anywhere and scaled at a moment’s notice. That demand won’t diminish after the pandemic ends.

“There is a new normal, and we’re trying to figure out our role in it,” Fuller said.

Under the latest multi-year agreement governing the relationship, the two companies committed even further to collaborating on product development and helping position joint customers on Citrix products hosted on Microsoft’s cloud.

“We’re trying to get our customers ready,” Fuller told CRN. “A lot of conversations we’ve been having around getting to cloud in a hybrid fashion have been validated by what we’re seeing with the Covid pandemic.”

“As organizations everywhere adapt to new ways of work, they will need to reimagine how and where work gets done,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said of the partnership.

“Together with Citrix, we will apply the power of Azure to this challenge, helping our customers seamlessly and securely connect their employees to their applications, so they can be more agile and productive wherever they are,” Nadella said.
