What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"My short experience shows it's a product that's is work in progress - unfinished.."

What do you like best?

I like that it can give employees the freedom to work from anywhere while cutting IT costs. It also meets the demands of any use case, allowing employees to access their apps, desktops and data without the limitations of a traditional solution.

What do you dislike?

Never saw a price table, never noticed any pricing until I entered the shopping cart. Set a pricing table, allow the users to compare. Don't just list the products and various licenses.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None so far. I hope I do in near future.

"Use it because I must for work. "

What do you like best?

It allows me to do work at home by logging into EMR easily.

What do you dislike?

Seems to be blocked by Mac computers alot and not all computers have it installed.

For some reason installing it can still be a problem depending on the computer system. Uncertain why some works and some don't eventhough it is required to view our EMR.

"Industry leader in desktop and app virtualization"

What do you like best?

Simplicity and near-native app performance on networks with high-latency is unbeatable. I like that I can interact natively with Windows apps from iOS based devices by means of the Citrix X1 mouse

What do you dislike?

Even though XenDesktop is hypervisor agnostic, most customers prefer to go to the one place to shop for their general virtualization and VDI needs. XenServer never got close to VMware ESXi.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make to sure to run a POC with a similar workload to your real environment before you decide. XenDesktop supports different deployment types for every need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Extending the value of Chromebooks by providing users with functionality they expect, like key combinations, USB redirection, printing and file transfer

"Fairly good, it is fast, but sometimes depends largely on the network speed"

When it lags, it sometimes never continues, and you have to restart it all over, which doesn't always cooperates

"Awesome product by citrix"

What do you like best?

It allows me and my colleagues to connect to a centralized location windows desktop. it is also very secure

What do you dislike?

With flexibility normally come complexity. XenDesktop is no different. You have a ton of options for provisioning desktops, broker configuration, web portal options and etc. If you don’t have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish it’s easy to overcomplicate your design.

"Stable environment for work at home."

What do you like best?

Citrix is very stable and secure. The support is great. I've never had Citrix crash when I'm using it.

What do you dislike?

It's a little slower than actually working on your desktop, but that's not really a Citrix issue. Internet connections still aren't as fast as being on a local PC.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a better enterprise solution than Remote Desktop because it has greater flexibility. You not only get desktop access, but you can have direct access to certain applications without going to your desktop.
