To demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the Citrix ecosystem and to delivering innovative solutions that promote digital transformation within the IT enterprise, IGEL Technology has signed on as the official gold sponsor for the 2016 Citrix Synergy Unplugged Tour.

Starting on Tuesday, June 21 and continuing through Wednesday, Sept. 7, IGEL Technology executives will join Citrix on a 25-city tour that will showcase IGEL's powerful Citrix® Ready workspace management software, software-defined thin clients, and thin and zero client solutions, alongside the best products and solutions featured earlier this year at the 2016 Citrix Synergy event in Las Vegas.

"IGEL Technology is excited to be a gold-level sponsor for the 2016 Citrix Synergy Unplugged Tour, and we are looking forward to having the opportunity to demonstrate our innovative workspace management solutions to mutual channel partners throughout the U.S.," said Jed Ayres, President and CEO, IGEL North America. "We place great value on our relationship with Citrix, and for more than two decades we have partnered with them to provide IT organizations with desktop computing solutions that are flexible, secure and can easily scale to meet the evolving requirements of today's enterprises."

Each stop on the 25-city Citrix Synergy Unplugged Tour will feature a 2-hour invitation-only lunch and learn event targeted toward IT consultants, MSPs, solution providers and systems integrators. Tour attendees can expect to hear unique perspectives on the opportunities that are currently available as a result of digital transformation in the enterprise; gain real-world insights into how channel partners are leveraging solutions from Citrix and its ecosystem partners to improve productivity and prepare IT organizations for digital transformation; see product demonstrations; learn about real-world customer applications; and, hear more about areas of innovation across the solutions portfolios of Citrix and its ecosystem partners.

During the tour, Citrix will be leveraging several of IGEL Technology's thin client models including the UD3, UD6, UD10 and recently introduced UD9, to demonstrate its innovative desktop virtualization and VDI solutions. Additionally, IGEL will also showcase its complete suite of hardware-agnostic workspace management solutions including:

  • Universal Desktop Converter (UDC): With the UDC, IT organizations can convert Dell Wyse 5000 and 7000 series thin clients; previous generation D and Z class thin clients; thin clients from other leading manufacturers; and, x86-based desktop computers or notebooks running any Linux, ThinOS or Windows Embedded operating system, into an IGEL thin or zero client running Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7 or the IGEL Linux operating system.
  • Universal Management Suite (UMS): As the heart of the managed workspace, UMS is designed to help IT organizations preserve their existing hardware investments by providing a single solution for managing their entire mixed infrastructure end-user computing environment, while reducing the time and effort associated with remote endpoint management.
  • Unified Management Agent (UMA): Operating as an extension of IGEL's industry-leading UMS software, the IGEL UMA makes integrated management of virtual, cloud and desktop environments possible, providing secure and centralized remote management of thin clients, desktop computers and notebooks running Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7, the IGEL Linux operating system, and now Windows 10.
