The main changes are that bigger discounts on SRP are now offered to partners who classify under one of four new Citrix Specialist tracks:
- Mobility Management
- Networking for data centre
- Networking for App and mobile security
Citrix are also throwing in a number of ancillary benefits:
- Increased competitive differentiation
- Incremental Specialist discounts and rewards
- Increased profitability with short ROI
- Recognition for technical expertise via Citrix endorsement
- Strengthened trust and engagement with Citrix sales team
All sounds great right? Anyone who relies on Citrix for their business would be foolish not register. Indeed it does, until you start to dig into the entry requirements.
