How to Banish Your Lack of Citrix Confidence


 If you are like many Systems Administrators or Engineers you have a lot of things going on and didn’t have the time to really learn how to do Citrix the right way. Yet, it is your responsibility none the less. Maybe you didn’t ask for it. Maybe you did. But it isn’t working like it should. Perhaps you are being asked to be in the role of designing Citrix solutions but you aren’t sure you are doing it according to best practices.
Maybe you are constantly bombarded by management demanding that Citrix ‘just works’ and you aren’t sure how to explain that Citrix isn’t really the problem. If hear all the time that logons are slow and if you Dread going into work every day… then this message is just for you. Here’s why…

You can now get curated expert-level guidance based on the biggest things that you need to know. We send what you need to know most right to you every month.

     And you need to realize, there is a cost to not dealing with this.

The more time goes by, the more you come into work each day not growing in confidence with Citrix.

If You Ignore It, It Just Gets Worse

     What most people do when facing their lack of Citrix knowledge is to spend hours parsing thru blogs or attending ‘boot camp’ courses. But for most people, none of that works.

  • Knowledge Gained doesn’t apply to their situation
  • Classes ‘teach to the Certification’ and not to the real-world needs
  • What is learned is rarely retained so time is just wasted

     And what happens if you just do nothing? If you just keep doing what you’ve been doing? You’ll get what you always got. Frustrations. Users getting increasingly frustrated with their work life and therefore with you.  For me, when I went thru this I got so discouraged that all of my work suffered…  And I was FIRED.
All because I didn’t have an expert guiding me.

How I Became a Citrix Hero

I’ve got an answer that works. Here’s the story:

Initially thru trial and error I learned things that worked and didn’t work. I consumed blogs like crazy for about four years.
But ultimately what worked for me was adopting Leading Practices. Some may call them ‘Best Practices’ but what I learned is that if you learn to identify patterns in people’s environments, you found the reasons they configured something made sense. Eventually, I started working with Citrix Consulting. There I was exposed to a worldwide network of expertise guided by real world knowledge. Literally thousands of projects that help shape how the Architects determine the best ‘first effort’ or Leading Practices to recommend that people validate.
The experience left a mark on me – I began tracking recommendations and results for customers from Consulting, from my own customers and from partners.

I found patterns – recommendations I made over and over again.

Why? Because people didn’t know that one recommendation had more weight than others.

It Worked For Me, And It Will Work For You

When I simplified my process and started with these Leading Practices – customer satisfaction improved. I spent less time chasing down answers and was able to guide people towards what worked.
And worked it did.
Before I knew it, I had story after story of Network and System Administrators telling me that for the first time in 3 years, they were going to take a vacation and they weren’t worried about their Citrix farm going down while they were away and not having a job when they returned.

In my own life- my favorite memory is a MA (Medical Assistant) running up to me in the hallway to give me a big hug. For the past year, she had been staying late nearly every night finishing charts and doing what had to be done in their EMR. She barely saw her kids. She was missing life.
But then I implemented a Citrix Gateway with the ability to single sign on securely.
She hugged her kids goodnight and got her work done with her slippers on and soft music in the background.
She told me with tears in her eyes that she didn’t know how to thank me.

It was all because I had found the week before a book that helped me formulate what has become my methodology today.

That seemingly huge investment at the time had an enormous impact.

Before I knew it – I was on my way to doubling my salary that year. In fact I got onto a path of doubling my salary every two years… and never looked back.
