There are two highly valuable and fast-growing trends in the enterprise that at first blush don’t seem to have much in common.

One is video communications, the most exciting and useful new form of communications in enterprises. Consumer use of video is driving adoption within organizations for a broad range of communication and collaboration use cases. Video is becoming a necessity for employees to do their jobs.

The other is thin client technology, one of the biggest changes in employee technology enablement in enterprises today. With over 10% of Fortune 1000 companies using them and expected growth of 27% annually through 2020, thin clients are becoming a mainstream way to improve the productivity of employees while reducing costs to enable them.

Despite how different they seem, these two technologies need to work together. Just as more and more employees rely on thin clients as their primary work environment, video is becoming a primary means of communication for CEOs and other leadership. Video is also growing as a training and collaboration tool.

Citrix and Qumu have been working together to leverage Qumu’s Pathfinder delivery technology to bring high quality video experience to VDI desktops.
