Taking a retrospective journey through the last several years, one
consistent theme has had a continuous impact on Enterprise IT —
consumerization and the specific impact consumer oriented technologies can
have on enterprises, and how new consumer technology models will affect
enterprises. The examples are numerous and well documented; from the advent
of the smartphone fueling the BYOD trend to the immediacy and simplicity of
social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter.
Consumer technologies drive new ways for employees to communicate, affecting
organizations large and small, the whole world over. Enterprise businesses
are constantly casting a quizzical glance toward the consumer space to
anticipate the next big thing that may arise. The challenge is in innovating
to align with consumer trends to take full advantage of the promise of
emerging technology, and apply it to enterprise businesses. In this session,
Steve Wilson, Vice President, Product for Cloud and IoT at Citrix, will
share insights into the latest technologies changing virtual reality and the
innovation that will drive opportunity in 2017.
