Sinthera SRL Wins in the Mid-market Category for Use of Citrix Virtualization Solutions to Enable 3D Design Teams to Creatively Collaborate Across Continents

Citrix Summit 2015

LAS VEGAS--()--Today at Citrix Summit™, Citrix announced that Hogan Consulting Group (enterprise category) and Sinthera SRL (mid-market category) have won the company’s second annual Innovation Award for Partners. The awards recognize visionary partners who are using Citrix technology to deliver mobile workspace solutions that enable business and organizational success, grow market share and compete beyond the industry norm.

Hogan Consulting Group, a strategic IT consulting company with offices located throughout the Midwest, used Citrix technology to design and implement a complete enterprise mobility solution for LG&E & KU Services Co. The solution securely extends their mobile command center to the field during an emergency, allowing them to provide crucial real-time data and quickly restore power to their customers.

Sinthera, a dynamic IT company providing system integration services in northern Italy, leveraged Citrix technologies to create unique solutions for its client Dallara Designs, which produces some of the safest and fastest racing cars in the world. As a result, designers can easily and efficiently share information – including share 3D-enabled production environments – between Dallara headquarters in Italy and the new production plant in the United States, as well as provide secure and real-time translation of large proprietary files and data such as automotive testing results.

Hogan Consulting Group and Sinthera SRL were both selected after an extensive review of nominations from around the world, looking for the most transformative companies leveraging Citrix market-leading virtualization, networking, mobility management and cloud services solutions to deliver state-of-the art workspace solutions. Both companies demonstrated the value that partners bring to their customers by showcasing the innovative elements of how they architect and implement Citrix-based solutions to enable business growth in a dynamic and mobile world. Finalists were chosen in two categories: enterprise solutions (>1,000 employees) and mid-market solutions (<1,000 employees).

This year’s finalists also included:

Enterprise Solutions Category

  • Fujitsu: Fujitsu is the leading Japanese information and communication technology (ICT) company. Fujitsu Finland has designed and implemented a flexible and innovative workplace service based on Citrix technologies for Terveystalo, a leading private sector healthcare operator in Finland.

The Citrix Innovation Award for Partners program seeks to inspire Citrix partners and their customers to think differently about IT: as a key strategic component to enable business and organizational success, grow market share and compete beyond the industry norm. In judging the finalists, Citrix places a strong emphasis on finding partners that have truly shown an innovative and transformative approach to customer use of Citrix technology.
