Citrix acquires Wrike for $US 2.25 billion Featured

By

Global digital workspace and application deployment vendor, Citrix, today announced it has completed its acquisition of Wrike for approximately $US 2.25 billion, saying the union creates the industry’s most comprehensive cloud-based platform for secure workspace delivery and collaborative work execution.

Citrix has been in the business of providing remote and virtualised desktop experiences and application delivery across desktops, tablets, smartphones, thin clients and more for over 30 years.

Wrike, a SaaS collaborative work management solution platform, is now fully within the Citrix fold, after its acquisition for around $US 2.25b in cash.

Citrix states the partnership allows Citrix to deliver the most-comprehensive cloud-based work platform to empower all employees and teams to securely access, collaborate and execute all work types in the most efficient and effective way possible, across any work channel, device or location. Specifically, the new platform will provide:

  • secure delivery of all work resources, including SaaS apps, web apps, mobile apps, virtual desktops, content and business services
  • native aggregation and integrations for apps, content, data, projects and workflows
  • built-in low code/no-code tooling for workflow automation
  • powerful project and work management tools to execute various levels of work across the enterprise - from portfolio planning with strategy/goal planning, to project planning with capacity planning, project execution and project insight and analytics

“For more than three decades, Citrix has been a leader in providing digital workspace infrastructure that empowers IT organisations to securely deliver the apps, content and business services employees need to do their jobs,” said David Henshall, President and CEO, Citrix.

“With the addition of Wrike’s collaborative work management capabilities, which leading companies like Walmart, Fitbit, Siemens Smart Infrastructure, Chosen Foods, and many others rely on to foster more efficient and collaborative work execution, we can take things to the next level and enable people, teams, and organisations to perform at their best.”

“Innovative companies understand that to power the modern, agile enterprise, they must transform the way their employees work,” said Andrew Filev, Senior Vice President and Wrike General Manager, Citrix.

“In combining Wrike’s collaborative work management innovations with Citrix Workspace, we can deliver an experience-driven work platform that enables businesses to quickly adapt to changing work styles and business needs and their employees to do the best work of their lives.”
