CITRIX UPDATE 2023
Announcing Cloud Software Group:
In September 2022, Vista Equity Partners and Evergreen Coast Capital Corp., an affiliate of Elliott Investment Management L.P., acquired Citrix and combined it with TIBCO to create Cloud Software Group (CSG). Cloud Software Group provides mission-critical software to enterprises at scale. Citrix, TIBCO, NetScaler, Jaspersoft, ibi, and ShareFile are all brands under the Cloud Software Group name.
We recognize that there is a lot of change associated with the transformation to the Cloud Software Group, and we are here to partner with you through this transition.
See below for important information regarding the Citrix and NetScaler Sales and Go-to-Market (GTM) Transformation.
