CTPs have enabled the success of Citrix implementations worldwide, whether through sharing knowledge on websites, publishing technical documentation, creating active communities of Citrix users, participating through online discussion forums, offering technical expertise in the field, or speaking publicly at IT conferences. The wealth of knowledge they have developed - and more importantly, openly shared - has proven invaluable to Citrix customers.
