ORLANDO: As desktop virtualisation leader Citrix moves aggressively into the domain of enterprise mobility, Cloud and data analytics, the company is set to hire and invest more in India at a time when the country aims to digitally transform workplaces in a secure way.



With a 5,000-strong customer base in the country, Citrix has been in India for the past 15-20 years, but the real journey for the company started five-seven years ago when enterprises started adopting Cloud and real-time data analytics.



"We are bullish on India and looking forward to cement our position in an ever-growing market. The country is fast embracing technology. At the same time, the speed at which our Indian customers are implementing Citrix solutions is growing exponentially," Stanimira Koleva, Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ), Citrix, told IANS.



"I am surprised the way the country is transforming digitally -- slowly but steadily at both the government and enterprise levels. Our discussions are now revolved around India in an entirely different way," added Koleva, who has 25 years of industry experience across the globe and within the APJ region.



Citrix has built teams tasked to deal with the governments across the APJ region.



"We are looking at building strong partnerships with top system integrators in India who are already serving large government enterprises. For me, it is important to ensure that my service partners have latest, secure Cloud-enabled technology in place to serve the government sector," Koleva emphasised.



For her, adoption of latest technology is on an upward trajectory in India. "We have leapfrogged into a new business model and are now pursuing partnerships with local vendors to deliver secure products to our customers in the country," Koleva told IANS on the sidelines of 'Citrix Synergy 2017' event being held at the Orange County Convention Center here.



The company has a full-fledged research and development centre in Bengaluru.



"We are set to hire more people along with more investments in India at a time when a lot of global patents are originating from the R&D centre there," Parag Arora, Citrix's Area Vice President and Country Head, India Subcontinent, told IANS.



Arora sees four key trends that India is fast embracing -- Cloud, mobility, Internet of Thing (IoT) and data analytics.



The public Cloud services market in India is projected to grow 38 pct in 2017 to $1.81 billion, according to the market research firm Gartner.
