Microsoft Names Citrix Global ISV Partner of the Year

Company known for remote computer access tools recognized for ability to deliver Microsoft solutions to enterprises, mid-market companies.

For the second time in three years, Citrix Systems Inc. received Microsoft’s Global ISV Partner of the Year Award. Microsoft presented the award to the access infrastructure solution provider in recognition of the company’s ability to deliver Microsoft solutions to its customers, according to a press release. Microsoft presented the award to Citrix at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Minneapolis.

“Those at Citrix have set themselves apart from an extremely competitive field, and we applaud them for this well-deserved victory,” said Allison Watson, vice president of the Worldwide Partner Sales and Marketing Group at Microsoft.

“With 98 percent of our business on Windows and with our reach to more than 6,200 channel and alliance joint partners in more than 100 countries, we are honored and pleased to again receive this reward,” said David Jones, senior vice president, corporate development, for Citrix. “Grounded in our longstanding and growing relationship with Microsoft, Citrix continues to be best-in-class in our focus on embracing and extending the Windows platform. The benefactors of this relationship are our joint customers, who get the best platform from Microsoft and Citrix and the access infrastructure solutions that meet their needs.”

In the three years that Microsoft has presented the award, Citrix won the top honor in 2003 and 2005. Citrix made it on the list of finalists in 2004, but Microsoft bestowed the honor that year to Quest Software.

Man, that was kind of harsh. If you're going to rant at least use enough grammar to understand what you are ranting about and get the facts straight. Regards, your Sarcasm 101 instructor.

Dear Citrix,

Congratulations on making our ISV Partner of year.

However, we are sorry to inform you that will not be providing you with information on our patches and roll-ups. Thus when we release Security Roll-Up for Windows 2000 SP4, it will break ICA and screw all of your customers over with BSODS.

Aren't you glad we have such a close working relationship?

Regards,
The idiot that name you ISV Partner of the Year.
