I am lamenting the fact that I’ll be missing my first Citrix Summit/Synergy in 4 years as this was what got me on the path to “Mobilitycloud” some 4+ years ago and still has me excited about the future of mobile computing, which shows no end in sight. Regardless of my absence, I’m hoping that those of you that are attending get the opportunity to attend Chris Fleck’s (@chrisfleck) breakout sessions about the 5 Options for Safe BYOD as well as visit the Mobile Lifestyles Lounge sponsored by Samsung at Synergy.
Mobility is an ever-evolving platform that is impacting our lives in just about every facet and for those of you who are looking to understand more about how you can make your employees productive no matter where they are plus have the enterprise security requirements that you need to be in place, be sure to stop by and tell them Glen sent you. Have fun in San Francisco and Let’s Go Mobile!
