UK Citrix User Group XVIII Review: You’re not in Kansas City Anymore

Citrix UK User Group logo

18. They grow up fast. Those drinks at the end at now legal people; you don’t have to have the food. We can also rent pornography, buy fireworks and get a tattoo and/or body piercings: if that isn’t incentive enough to join us for future sessions, hopefully the following content will persuade you.

Thanks to our excellent sponsors (AppEnsureExtraHopLiquidware LabsNutanix, Uniprint, AppSenseAtlantis Computing, eg Innovations  FS Logix and UniDesk) this was, yet again, a free-to-attend meeting.


The Steering Group would like to thank all the presenters for their time, effort and engaging presentations: especially for those presenting for the first time at the user group. Thanks as ever to the 3D-realtime attendees for providing interesting and useful questions; always great to meet and greet new faces (and again there were lots this time) we look forward to seeing you again with a larger chair quotient from the off.  Thanks also to those attending on-line via Go-to-Webinar – we a couple of niggles early doors but if you’re heckling the presenter in a friendly manner from another country – it must be working right, and at least you had somewhere to sit from the start 🙂

Who attends UK Citrix User Group events? For XVIII over 120 registered and we had about 70% turn up on the day. It is mainly end users of attendees on the day but, you know here in the UK, we enjoy inclusivity. Of those attending  :-

  • 66% end users/partners – we did see lots of new faces (looked to be almost half which was very interesting). Also nice to see old ones who made the trek down/across/up.
  • 10% from Citrix. As always, good to see you guys – especially during the Round Table. As Jane Rimmer mentioned in her review of the XVII UK Citrix User Group event a user group needs the support and focus from the vendor to be successful and we appreciate your contribution, obviously with a shout out to Ben for presenting.
  • 1% came from Sponsors
  • The rest put “other” for those of you who like completeness.

Again, thanks to our sponsors for this free-to-attend event, especially Liquidware for the very lovely lunch, and Appensure for refreshment and FSLogix for the post-event drinks.

Death, Taxes and The Evolution of the Enterprise Desktop – are you prepared?

Liquidware Labs Logo

In life we all know a few things are for certain — besides the obvious “death and taxes” — another certainty is that there will also ALWAYS be change.

This maxim can especially be applied to the IT industry and certainly about the desktop/workspace/user/BYOD/DAAS/VDI/SAAS landscape we are seeing morph before our eyes. All of these options certainly raise plenty of questions to an organization trying to figure out what their go-forward desktop strategy should look like.

  • “How do I get started?”
  • “What are the best options for me now and in the long-term?”
  • “How do I keep from making expensive mistakes?”
  • “Am I actually PREPARED to act on my decisions when I want to or more importantly when I NEED to?”

Welcome to the new UK Citrix User Group!

Welcome to the new-look UK Citrix User group!

Introducing the UK Citrix User Group

A few dedicated Citrix engineers and consultants decided the UK had gone without a proper Citrix user group for long enough. So over a beer, a plan was hatched and the results of which you are now reading. It’s still early days, but it’s a start and we look forward to growing the group to become an established part of the Citrix community in the UK over the next few years.


We don’t want the group to become a London-only user group, and plan to hold meetings around the country. We welcome suggestions on suitable venues and you can post your own suggestions in the various regional group forums.


Membership is currently free, although we are investigating the option of having a tiered membership system where a paid membership gives you a number of additional benefits such as discounts on Citrix courses and exams, and access to the Citrix Community Lab infrastructure.
