Your employer may require you to learn Citrix as part of your core responsibilities, but there is added value for being well versed in the technology. The innovation behind Citrix gives businesses the benefit of added mobility so that employees are able to connect to the office and collaborate on tasks in real time, no matter where they are in the world.
