In our featured partner series of Citrix Ready podcasts, we explore the technology integrations that Citrix has with its partners. In this series, I invite guests from Citrix and their partners to spend some time with me to share how they are solving real-world problems for businesses. Not on their own but by working together. In this episode of the Citrix Ready Podcast series, I explore how Citrix and IGEL Technology are working together to solve real-world problems for businesses.
IGEL delivers powerful unified endpoint management (UEM) software that is revolutionary in its simplicity and purpose-built for the enterprise. The company’s world-leading products, including the IGEL Universal Management Suite™, IGEL OS™-powered thin and zero clients, and all-in-one thin client solutions, deliver a smart and secure endpoint management experience that shifts granular control of thin and zero client devices from the end-user to IT.
I invited Sagnik Datta from Citrix and Jim Airdo from IGEL onto my podcast to learn more about the work they are doing together and how their technologies complement each other.
