Citrix technology enables organizations to provide access to server-based applications from a wide variety of client devices and platforms. Since these applications are installed, updated and maintained on central servers instead of each client, the cost and complexity of administration are significantly reduced; the Citrix model also enables rapid application deployment. In addition, because the applications execute 100 percent on the server, and only keystrokes, mouse movements and screen updates are transmitted over the network between the server and client, Citrix software enables high application performance even over bandwidth-constrained connections.
