University of Toronto Mississauga fuels new model for education with Citrix


The University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) has given its IT infrastructure and approach to delivering programs a fresh look to support the latest developments in education.

With the support of Citrix partner Third Octet, UTM has built a modern environment in which it can provide consistent, secure and reliable access to all of the resources its students need to learn and succeed, anywhere, anytime, using digital workspace solutions from Citrix Systems.

With Citrix Cloud services, IT organizations can rapidly deploy secure digital workspaces while placing their sensitive app, desktop and data resources on any cloud or hybrid cloud. Using the solution, UTM was able to quickly bring its lab classes to a remote environment and deliver a high-quality experience to students, regardless of their location.

“The benefit to using Citrix is that it is adaptable to changing conditions,” said Matthew Metelsky, CEO, Third Octet.

“Now that we’ve seen the areas where remote education can be successful, we are taking a longer-term, strategic look into how to support these platforms.

“What we designed to meet a short-term need can be easily adapted into a long-term strategy to support remote education that will give UTM a competitive advantage.”
