  • The Human Side to ZeroTrust Mar 10 2021 10:00 am UTC 21 mins
    Kurt Roemer, Chief Security Strategist, Citrix
    72 percent of organizations plan to roll out a ZeroTrust model to mitigate security risk. But Zero Trust takes more than flipping a switch—if employees don’t buy in to your security strategy, it will not succeed.

  • Work 2035 – How people and technology will pioneer new ways of working Mar 9 2021 10:00 am UTC 22 mins
    Tim Minahan, EVP Business Strategy & CMO, Citrix, Safi Obeidullah, CTO, Citrix
    Nowhere is our future more in flux than the future of work. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many organisations to revolutionise their ways of working almost overnight and brought the future of work to the present. Remote work has become the “new normal,” and companies are making it part of their long-term strategies to ensure business continuity. Work will never be the same again. Yet it remains central to what it means to be human.

    How will this relationship between the workforce, work models and work environment evolve? And how can we as business leaders, policymakers and individuals see further into the forces that will shape our future and bring about the future we want?
    We asked some of the world’s most respected academics, business leaders and employees to join us in imagining what the future of work might look like in 2035, the opportunities and threats it might hold, and how people and technology may work together to generate value.

    This exercise raised the fundamental questions that must be faced by every business and government organisation in their long-term strategic planning. How will workers be organised to deliver value? How will people partner with technology and will we see the emergence of human-machine teaming? What new opportunities will workers be afforded and what novel pitfalls will they face? How might governments and supranational entities respond with regulation to support workers and ensure competition in the new world of work?

    In this session Tim Minahan Executive Vice President, Business Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer will discuss the research with Safi Obeidullah Field Chief Technology Officer. They will talk through various topics including Artificial Intelligence and what it could mean for workers and leaders and how savvy companies are using this crisis as an opportunity to rethink their workforce strategies.
  • Connected IT to Deliver Care – Any Place, Any Time Mar 2 2021 10:00 am UTC 56 mins
    R. Vize, Public Policy Media, Dr A. Hayter, NHS England, J. Beardsmore, Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust, J. Murden, Citrix
    As a result of the pandemic, hospitals are being reinvented as centres of intensive care, with other services being pushed out into the community, or delivered through virtual settings. This is driving the largest shake-up of NHS estates and the delivery of care ever witnessed.

    At the heart of this reconfiguration is the need for a connected health and IT infrastructure that will enable clinicians to effectively deliver patient care in any setting. The imperative for access to apps, data and systems in any location, at any time has never been more essential or urgent.

    In this webinar we will be hearing from transformation leaders at the heart of delivering connected systems. We’ll be discussing the need for rapid transformation and the business case for investing into connected IT systems right now, as well as exploring some of the practicalities of connecting your legacy systems to enable clinicians to deliver effective care regardless of their location.
  • Five heroic measures IT teams must take to navigate 'back to the office' Recorded: Feb 23 2021 55 mins
    Matt Crawford Director, Solutions Marketing, Citrix & Richard Achee, Global Technology Partner Lead, Google.
    Last year, IT teams did a super-human job of rapidly enabling employees to work remotely during the pandemic. The stories were amazing – with some technologists standing up environments in weeks – or even a matter of days. Now, IT leaders realize that “Back-to-Office” isn’t “remote work in reverse.” IT departments have to consider more than just how to support remote and office workers at the same time. It’s more complicated than that given thin IT budgets, new post-COVID-19 requirements, and new employee perspectives on what a great technology experience really is. The new normal requires efficient technology infrastructure that facilitates employee productivity, keeps business data and intellectual property secure, and allows IT departments to be agile enough to seize opportunities. IT needs to be able to respond to whatever comes next. Take 30 minutes to learn five heroic measures you can take -- cost effectively – to support this next phase of work.

    · Provide a unified work experience no matter where work gets done.
    · Develop an endpoint device strategy that reduces costs.
    · Rethink security with a zero trust approach
    . Reduce onboarding costs for all workers, including gig workers and contractors.
    · Give yourself options for scalable, flexible deployment.
  • 'Unlocking Digital Productivity for the Public Sector Recorded: Feb 16 2021 61 mins
    Terry A'hearn, CEO, SEPA, Steve Hoensch, University of Cambridge, Matt Smith, Citrix
    The COVID-19 pandemic, and subsequent societal shift to home-working, has created massive challenges for business continuity and service delivery in the public sector.

    However, with the right digital solutions, this could be leveraged into an opportunity for organisations to improve productivity and unlock access to new talent. So how can you take advantage of this and transform your approach?

    Holyrood Connect has partnered with industry experts Citrix to answer this as part of our ongoing series of digital briefings.

    Our high profile lineup of speakers will include a presentation from Kate Forbes MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Finance, on the role digital productivity can play in Scotland’s post-pandemic economic recovery. This will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on public sector case studies of digitally enabled productivity.
  • Real world business continuity insights, consideration & recommendations Recorded: Feb 9 2021 31 mins
    Safi Obeidullah, Field CTO APJ, Victor Rodriguez, Field CTO, AMS, Kurt Roemer, Chief Security Strategist, Jeff Sanderson, CTO
    Organizations must create an effective, holistic business continuity plan that mitigates the potential organizational impact an unexpected event can cause. Creating an effective business continuity plan requires a number of things to consider, some obvious and not to obvious. Join us for an upcoming webinar, where you will hear from members of the Citrix Office of the CTO who will share their industry experiences to provide insights on effective business continuity planning.
  • The Tension Between Effective Security and Employee Experience Recorded: Nov 19 2020 55 mins

    The New Workspace Episode 6

    Many organisations agree that employee experience is a top priority. It both attracts new talent, and makes it more likely that your employees will be sticking around for the long haul.

    IT plays a pivotal role in employee engagement. Employees need to work from anywhere and want to use their own devices. Workplace expectations are evolving fast. But with more user endpoints and remote workers than ever, security risks are on the rise.

    According to the 2019 Thales Data Threat Report, 60% of global organisations had experienced a data breach.

    With constant threats on the horizon, it’s important that the digital workspace implements effective security measures. These measures must improve productivity rather than cause a nuisance and take up employee time.

    In this episode we will discuss:

    • How to optimize your security strategy in a way that doesn’t compromise employee experience
    • How the new world of work will impact employer and employee collaboration
    • Fostering a culture of security, privacy and compliance that’s focused on outcomes

    Panelists include:
    - Safi Obeidullah, Field Chief Technology Officer, Citrix
    - Thomas Hatch, CTO and founder, SaltStack
    - Kurt Roemer, Chief Security Strategist, Citrix
    - Jennifer Szkatulski, Security Intelligence Analyst/Technical Strategy and Innovation Lead, IBM

    The New Workspace Episode 5

    In order to combat change and disruption, businesses need to be adaptable. Companies are having to change business models and operations to adapt to remote working and workforce strains.

Using the tools available to us, and staying on top of trends can keep your business thriving.

    While many are returning to work, this is not a return to normality, and a lot of work still has to go into adapting to the new dynamics of the workplace.

    In this episode we will discuss:
    • How to adapt to the new climate and digitise your business
    • The tools that are available to help run business smoothly
    • The digital economy and digital business models

    The New Workspace Episode 4

    The coronavirus pandemic has changed the very fabric of the working world. From the challenges of working remotely, to encouraging productivity in your employees - leaders and employees are navigating an entirely new dynamic. While we’re still grappling with adjusting to remote working, organisations are now navigating a return to the office, and putting precautions into place to protect their staff. Everything from culture, to on-boarding and hiring has changed, and leaders must react quickly and efficiently to the change in employees as well as workplace culture.

    In this episode we will cover:

    • What sort of leader is needed in times of crisis, and the sort of leadership that will emerge in the new working world
    • The difference between a remote workforce and a distributed workforce
    • How to make working from home easier and enjoyable for everyone
    • How to lead a return to office
    • The new skill sets needed from employees and leaders

    Mayank Singh and Rob Beekmans, Citrix
    Making Windows Virtual Desktop Work for Business Continuity
    Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) provides users with the freedom to work from anywhere. In order to provide a positive experience, WVD must be personalized, optimized and integrated. If users don't have the right apps or data or experience, the business continuity plan will suffer.

    In this inaugural session by our technical experts, we will walk though how to provide a WVD solution that incorporates:

    •Personalization to accommodate user requirements with FSLogix
    •App-specific optimizations for Office 365 and Microsoft Teams
    •Access to users cloud and on-premises content

Then, you will learn how to improve remote employee experience and gain productivity, engagement and efficiency with Citrix Solution Strategists Sasa Petrovic and PO Johansson.
  • Education is Changing.​ How can IT leaders innovate for the next generation?​ Recorded: Oct 14 2020 58 mins
    Steve Hoensch, Cambridge University. Paul Harris, Enterprise Channel Manager, Microsoft. Craig Bramley, Citrix
    This year has seen rapid and significant change in the education sector.

    In this panel discussion, experts explored the five key areas universities must focus on to deliver successful learning in an ever-changing world.
  • Is the Civil Service Ready for a New Era of Remote Working? Recorded: Oct 13 2020 74 mins
    Mike Hulett, National Crime Agency, Geoffrey Lyons, Civil Service World, Dr. David Best, UCAS, Stephen Twynam, Citrix
    Central government departments have traditionally been strongly opposed to any form of Bring Your Own Device policy, but the pandemic has set off a perfect storm of circumstances meaning it can longer be ignored.

    Departments such as DWP and HMRC are seeing an unprecedented demand for their services as millions of new citizens are being put on furlough with new stay at home policies. Some traditionally desk-based staff working within the departments haven't even been able to work as they don't have laptops to work from.

    What if there was a way to allow staff to use their own devices quickly and securely?

    In this webinar, we'll discuss some of the key issues around remote working, including:
    •How is remote working different (apart from being – well, remote?)
    •What are the security risks around remote working?
    •What are the pros and cons of Bring Your Own Device policies?
  • Improving employee experience and productivity during the pandemic Recorded: Oct 6 2020 60 mins
    Chris Smith and Jane Christopher, Citrix
    In only a few months this global pandemic has changed our lives in ways we could not have seen or imagined before. The financial services industry is playing a pivotal role in supporting businesses and citizens to weather the storm through the crisis. It is critical that banks maintain service continuity, while accommodating stay-at-home orders and physical distancing for their workers. It is challenging.

    Prior to March 2020, financial organisations knew that digital transformation was critical to delivering a better customer experience and operational efficiencies, with many initiatives already underway. However, there was not the urgency that there is now. Post-March 2020, customers will be looking to run their financial life through apps and online banking. These applications will be developed and supported by employees and contractors working from home. In fact, most financial service sector employees at the present time are now working from home.

    These seismic shifts precipitated by the current situation are unlikely to reverse any time soon. Given that employees working from home is the new normal, how does the financial service industry ensure its workers are productive and engaged?

    In February 2020, pre-pandemic, Citrix surveyed managers and employees across all sectors in the UK to understand the relationship between the employee experience and productivity.

    The research revealed 47 per cent of managers in financial services believe their organisation is working at maximum productivity compared to only 27 per cent of employees.

  • What if your Business Continuity Plan could help you support a more sustainable Recorded: Aug 18 2020 28 mins
    Bjorn Riiber. EMEA Domain Specialist: Cloud & Technology Evangelist
    What will be the impact on our work efficiency and to the health of the planet earth after a crisis like the one we are experiencing today – or others we will experience in the future? Will a Business Continuity Plan help us at all? What is important to an end-user in a Business Continuity scenario and how can technology help? How can we secure the level of productivity we need to stay alive as a business or controversially, could it be possible for a crises to increase our productivity? Since 2.7 billion CO2 annual combined GHG comes from global emissions of commuting and ICT, is it possible to reduce our global carbon footprint with an intelligent Business Continuity Plan?

    You can't predict the next crisis but you can be prepared for it: this rings true for all organizations and employees around the world in 2020.

    Business leaders need to prepare for the unknown with an integrated crisis management policy. Successful leaders are navigating today’s crisis by identifying the right combination of policies and technologies to ensure as little disruption as possible while maintaining secure control of corporate resources.

    In the third episode of The New Workspace, we focus on the importance of Business Continuity and how to prepare and educate both your leadership and organization to always be ready for the unpredictable, whilst limiting disruption and continuing workforce productivity.
