With the advent of Citrix Cloud several years ago, Citrix made software-as-a-service and, consequently, a subscription-based model available. Transitions to Citrix Cloud and subscription models were massive – 75% of Citrix’s current business is through subscription. Citrix Cloud provides an amazing platform to ease the burden of management complexity, expedite deployment of services across hybrid environments, and expose organizations to a wealth of value-added features – many of which were not available for traditional on-premises deployments.
Subscription-based solutions provide benefits including lower cost of entry, financing flexibility, simplified billing, and ongoing predictability. However, for some organizations, especially those that sit within the remaining 25% of Citrix’s business, perpetual seems to be the desired acquisition approach. Come September 30th, 2020, you’ll need to merge with the subscription model for future licensing acquisition.
On July 1, 2020, Citrix announced they are discontinuing the ability to purchase Digital Workspace (Workspace, Virtual Apps, Virtual Apps and Desktops, Virtual Desktops, Endpoint Management) perpetual software licenses effective September 30th, 2020. As such, as of October 1, 2020, you will only be able to purchase on-premises software solutions as a subscription.
Join us for an informative webinar where we’ll walk through:
- What Citrix announced
- Which on-premises and perpetual offerings are affected
- What are the impacts to you
- What are your options moving forward
And, of course, in typical fashion, we’ll leave plenty of time for questions and answers.
