Hi Don,

Citrix has a lot of different products, but the most commonly used products and their latest versions are:

- XenDesktop 7.6, this is used for complete desktop virtualisation;
- XenApp 7.6, this is used to publish applications which run on XenApp servers instead of locally on the workstation;
- XenMobile 9.0, this is a mobile device management platform.

For information about Citrix products, please view their website: http://www.citrix.com/products.html?posit=glnav

PVS 7.1 as well

Citrix is mostly focused on Desktop and Application Delivery and Virtualization.  So basically, Citrix wants to make it easier for you to get to your desktops and applications that you want to access.  It allows contractors (Accenture consultants) and employees in remote offices (State Farm/Allstate agents), access to internal applications without installing the applications on their computer.  Since the applications are installed on servers in the companies internal network, it allows the managers of the applications to keep the applications up-to-date without having to deploy software over the WAN for each update.
