The “George Jetson” of Today

The “George Jetson” of Today

He grew up in Silicon Valley, landed his first job at Apple Computers, was introduced to Nobel Prize winners by his dad and today, he takes a self-driving car to work so that he can squeeze in a few morning conference calls with the US east coast Team. Is this George Jetson!? No. It’s just a normal day for Steve Wilson, VP of Products for Cloud at Citrix

As a Silicon Valley native, Steve grew up around hi-tech. From a job at Apple, a business degree from the University of San Diego, and joining a start-up after graduation, he seemed headed to a lucrative career with one of the technology giants. That path, however, took a detour when Mr. Wilson started working for Florida headquartered Citrix. So after getting tired of his 45-minute commute to the Citrix west coast office, he became the George Jetson, of Citrix.

Since futurism is an everyday thing for this Citrix VP, being responsible for the company’s “Workplace of the Future” strategy really makes sense. This was the topic of discussion when Steve Wilson discussed his vision with Dez Blanchfield on “Conversations with Dez”.

 

According to Mr. Wilson, his job involves bringing together a company’s physical workplace with their digital workspace – optimizing both for today’s mobile-first world. This means enabling them to access the multiple digital workspace assets from different places and with different classes of devices that are also secure. In his vision, Steve sees a merger of different kinds of applications on the server as well as the differing clients. The top question in this quest is,” How do organizations enable the secure use of these different computing device classes?”

“And so really, what we see is an interesting merger going on, where we’re starting to see traditional computing devices, like your laptops and your desktops being supplemented, obviously, with things like phones and tablets. But the next generation is bringing in new sets of devices into the enterprise, where we’re seeing people bring in things like Amazon Alexa for business and Apple TV, and making them enterprise devices and saying, “How do I bring this into my enterprise infrastructure?”
