Citrix acquires micro app platform Sapho
San Francisco : Desktop virtualisation leader Citrix on Friday announced the acquisition of Sapho, a leading micro app platform, for an undisclosed sum.
This will enhance the guided work capabilities within "Citrix Workspace", enabling people to work with even greater speed, intelligence and simplicity, the company said in a statement.
"In today's tight labour market, advantage goes to companies that can recruit, develop and engage employees better than the competition," said Tim Minahan, Executive Vice President Business Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer, Citrix.
"Employee experience will ultimately determine winners and losers and Citrix is committed to delivering intelligent digital workspaces that give companies an edge," he added.
Sapho's micro applications improve employee productivity by consolidating access to tools, activities and tasks in a simple and unified work feed.
"Our technologies create an intelligent environment that solves productivity challenges that employees and companies are facing by organising work in a single place, guiding work by bringing micro-apps into the environment and automating tasks to increase time for employees to do value-added work," explained Fouad ElNaggar, co-founder and CEO, Sapho.
"Citrix Workspace" gives users secure, single sign-on (SSO) access to all the applications and content in a digital workspace that delivers a consistent and unified experience on several devices.
