We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is stable, easy to scale, and provides secure remote access.""The most valuable feature is connectivity. The remote connection is the reason we are using this solution.""The ease of access and the confidentiality and security that it provides is what we like best.""The price and user interface are great.""The most valuable feature is the seamless application edition with the low-level network bandwidth because we have between 10 and 15 sites in France with a low level of communication needs. We need to deploy our main application, the ERP system, and we needed an efficient solution to provide a solution to the remote sites, with very small links between the data center and the remote site."

"It's all about centralizing your data and making sure that your data is centralized and secure.""We used to have a system before, Mac OS Open Directory server and this open directory became obsolete because Apple decided to stop the enterprise market, so there was no other alternative for us to use. We chose this to replace the open directory and we found that it has many more features than the previous solution. We totally rely on it right now to manage all the devices on campus.""The feature that we find most valuable is the corporate email pushing.""Cloud-based VMware Workspace ONE is very good. It is easy to deploy and manage. Maintenance is also quite simple.""A very easy to use solution.""The most valuable feature is policy-driven control of the devices.""The remote management and location capabilities are good.""The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol."

Cons
"The product is currently not working well in hosting conferencing software like Zoom, Team, and Salon.""This solution is resource-intensive, it takes a lot of Bandwidth and a lot of the resources of the server.""When there are technical issues, sometimes we can't get on the cloud.""The initial setup is very complex.""The application is now very complex. We started with Citrix on PCs. Now, to access the same application, we need to have a StoreFront Server, the Delivery Controller, and Citrix License Server. It's now very complex."

"The setup was very difficult. It was not as easy as I had expected.""The solution needs to adapt to the cloud based reality of the current world model. Some customers may have reluctance to this, but it is the next level for all of the big providers. Azure, AWS and Google are all on the forefront of cloud-based solutions.""The mobile device repository is somewhat difficult to manage with a large user base.""Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace.""Cost of licensing is quite high.""When it comes to deployment and maintaining security, there should be an integrated console where you have a singular view of all of the products from the same OEM.""The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user.""The reverse proxy is not intuitive and it takes time to get it right, so this is something that can be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We don't have a lot to compare it to, but we certainly think whatever we pay is worthwhile at this point in time. It's very reasonable."

More Citrix Workspace Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I think the pricing of the product needs advisement. It would be great to bundle the VM products together. I think the actual box itself should be included in the license. At present, it is not paired with the mobile device.""If you purchase it for one year, it is very expensive. If you get it for three years or up to five years, then you can bargain a better price.""There is a separate cost for technical support and extra premium features. The pricing should be simplified.""The cost is a little bit high."
