  • We are enabling our customers with huge leaps in productivity by reducing cloud application packaging,deployment from two weeks to two hours including for Citrix XenDesktop. The power of the integration of Citrix CloudPlatform and AppStack is making that possible.

    Rich Wein, Chief Executive Officer, SSI,

    SSI, a Citrix Solution Advisor and Citrix Service Provider, is a leading provider of enterprise level technology, hosting, management and support solutions in the Philadelphia Tri-State area. The company provides hosted business apps and desktops for the small business market through its MySecureCloud line of service, while its Aquipt division offers MatterPoint, an e-discovery platform, for law firms, corporate legal departments and litigation service providers..

    The challenge: Building and managing a cloud services businessAs SSI evolved its business from sales and consulting into full-fledged managed services, the com-pany needed a platform to build, deliver and manage the cloud solutions its customers required. SSIs new business required capabilitiessuch as the ability to push apps to mobile devices, provide assisted self-service for clients, allow customers to manage their own solutions, and automate the management, metering and billing of its services. We saw that the combination of Appcara and Citrix technologies could support every part of our plan, including the delivery of traditional enter-prise apps, web apps, mobile apps and industry solutions, through a single, integrated environ-ment, says Rich Wein, CEO of SSI.

    The solution: Implementing a complete cloud technology stackwith Citrix and AppcaraCitrix CloudPlatform provides a flexible, open foundation for SSIs cloud services business. Citrix CloudPortal Services Manager helps the company manage its delivery of cloud services, including hosted desktops and apps powered by Citrix XenDesktop and Citrix XenApp. Citrix CloudPortal Business Manager provides automation and management for the operational and commercial aspects of SSIs cloud business. Citrix XenMobile provides device-level security to support full user mobility and BYOD. Citrix NetScaler enables secure access control. Citrix XenServer lets SSI consoli-date and transform compute resources into virtual workloads delivered via the cloud. The Citrix stack is complemented by the Appcara AppStack platform, which streamlines and accelerates the packaging, deployment and management of enterprise cloud applications. Appcaras AppStack is a Citrix Ready verified cloud application automation and migration platform that is integrated with CloudPlatform and CloudPortal Business Manager.

  • Key benefit: Delivering dramatic cost savings withcustomized solutionsSSI can provide customers of its products MySecureCloud and MatterPoint with solutions tailored to their needs. The company leverages AppStack with an array of Citrix cloud solutions to securely deliver select Windows and web apps or complete hosted desktops on any device, anywhere.CloudPortal Services Manager lets the company meet the needs of customers who prefer to main-tain direct control over their own services. SSI customers who use ShareFile can manage their data alongside their virtualized apps within the same integrated environment. By providing cost-effec-tive cloud services that match the performance and functionality of on-premise technologies, SSI delivers cost savings that help drive competitive advantage. One MatterPoint customer reduced its labor costs by nearly two-thirds, saved more than $1 million in annual operating costs, and elim-inated the need for millions more in infrastructure, says Wein. Our Citrix platform with AppStack made that possible.

    Key benefit: Meeting demanding legal industry requirements forcloud servicesLegal organizations can scale their MatterPoint services quickly to support unpredictable e-discov-ery data and processing requirements, and can meter their own service consumption to pass costs through to their clientsa key industry need. Customers can also choose to move e-discovery to the cloud while keeping email, time and billing, and other systems in-house to take a staged approach to the cloud. With AppStacks multi-cloud capabilities, if a firm serving a public sector cli-ent needs to host its workloads in a government-approved facility, SSI can shift its XenApp app delivery to Amazon GovCloud easily with the same level of reliability and performance.

    Key benefit: Offering integrated cloud technologies boosts growthby 50 percent

    As the leader in the cloud technology space, Citrix is the only company that can provide all the capabilities we need to grow and expand our business, all made to work together, so we can get to market more quickly and easily without having to chase multiple vendors, says Wein. This helps the company compete effectively for larger customers. Now that were no longer dealing with piecemeal technologies, we can win and serve customers with 500+ users for the first time.Weve handled 50 percent growth in our cloud services business over the past year without adding head-count and its not stressing our organization. AppStack will further accelerate our ability to deliver applications into cloud environments for our customers.

    Looking aheadWe couldnt run our cloud business without the automation, scalability and reliability provided by the power of the Citrix platform and AppStack says Wein. The combined solution aligns perfectly with our current business and future direction. Its a highly successful partnership.
