Citrix India, maker of cloud and collaboration solutions, plans to expand its facility and increase its headcount in India.The company plans to hire 200 employees for its new facility that year.

With the expanded facility, Citrix India has the capacity to accommodate 1,400 employees. The company now has 1,000 employees on its rolls.

Citrix is upbeat on growth in India. “India will continue to grow faster than other regions, Mr David Henshall, Executive Vice-President of Operations, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of Citrix, told Business Line.

According to Mr Henshall, Citrix India will grow at 40 per cent compared to the 30 per cent growth the company witnessed in the past few years.

To tackle this growth, the company is looking at augmenting its workforce in this expanded facility. All major product work of Citrix gets done out of its Indian R&D centres in Bangalore and Hyderabad and according to Citrix officials, the Bangalore R&D centre is the largest outside the US.

Citrix also sees opportunities in the domestic Indian IT market, especially in areas such as disaster recovery and business continuity are driving growth.

This becomes more relevant as Indian companies now have global operations, through organic growth and acquisitions,

The company is targeting the education, manufacturing, financial services, IT-ITeS and government verticals for its cloud and related solutions.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers.
