New Delhi, Nov 15 (ANI-Business Wire India): Citrix Systems Inc., the global leader in application delivery infrastructure, today announced that its drive of application delivery infrastructure in the Pacific region (Asia Pacific including Japan) has gained more than 6,000 new customers in a year representing 28% year-on-year growth.
With a strong installed base of 28,000 customers, the revenue growth for the Pacific region has been the fastest growing in Citrix for two consecutive quarters with revenue growth of 31 percent year-on-year in Q3 2007 as compared to Q3 2006.
“Citrix strong growth in revenue and customers attest the importance of application delivery infrastructure in addressing the dynamic forces impacting today’s businesses and the increasing business requirement for applications to be delivered anywhere,” said Dennis Rose, Vice President - Pacific, Citrix Systems. “Sustaining this momentum, we are on track to growing Pacific’s contribution to Citrix’s worldwide revenue to 20 per cent by 2012.”
Most of the growth in the Pacific region can be attributed to Citrix customers across industries scaling up their application delivery infrastructure as a standard operating environment as they realise tangible business benefits from their initial implementation.

“Citrix Technology has been adopted as a strategic platform to enable IT to respond faster to changes in the business,” said Mohamed Suboh Yunus, Assistant Vice President, Head of Innovation and Architecture at Malayan Banking Berhad (Maybank), Malaysia. “There is an increased need to deliver key applications such as customer and corporate loan applications, at a faster pace to the bank branches and to enable access from anywhere. Citrix has enabled us to put in place an application delivery infrastructure that meets these business requirements.”
In addition, key to Citrix’s growing momentum in the Pacific is its business strategy that addresses the needs of different IT buyers, offering organizations of mid-to-large enterprises the ability to deliver any application from any access point with the best performance, highest security and lowest cost.
Citrix continues to give organizations’ network architects, server operations, desktop operations, IT infrastructure teams and strategic IT decision-makers the ability to adapt on demand as well as the tools they need to cater to business propositions unique to every company.
