New Citrix CEO Kirill Tatarinov hasn't been at the company long enough to fully chart its course for the future yet, but Citrix has moved over the past year to pare down its noncore products and refocus on end-user computing, or EUC.
That's probably good news for Citrix shops, but it doesn't make it any easier for IT pros to decide between close to 100 sessions at the multiday conference, which takes place May 24 to 26 in Las Vegas. Citrix Synergy 2016 has breakout sessions; instructor-led and self-paced learning labs; "Birds of a Feather" panel discussions, with industry-specific themes; and even a Jeopardy-style game show hosted by Brian Madden.
The best way to prepare for Synergy 2016 is to first identify a few topics to zero in on. To get started, take a scroll through this slideshow, which highlights five EUC-related topics, products or features that should be on every IT administrator's radar.
Oh, and it wouldn't hurt to catch Tatarinov's first Synergy keynote.
