<p>Citrix Access Infrastructure enables Victorian Government to deliver improved services</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia — 14 March 2006 — Citrix Systems, Inc., the global leader in access infrastructure has announced that the Victorian Government has signed a $5 million contract for its Citrix® Presentation Server product and services.</p>
<p>The contract covers Citrix licences and services to all Victorian Government organisations covered by the Audit Act, including hospitals, education, local government and state government organisations.</p>
<p>Part of Victoria’s e-government vision is about smarter use of information and communications networks to improve all government interactions with Victorians whether online or not. E-government is a commitment to greater innovation – in the use of new information networks and communications technology, in new ways of working and in new partnerships outside government.</p>
<p>“The Victorian Government’s e-government vision recognises the value of information and technology to link different government programs and resources in a seamless way,” said Victorian Government CIO Jane Treadwell. “It involves coordinating and integrating services and information from local and federal governments, and the private sector in the aim of making communication and dealings with government more convenient and simpler for citizens.”</p>
<p>E-government has the potential to reduce service delivery costs, eliminate unnecessary duplication and in some cases make it possible to meet emerging needs without restructuring agencies or programs.</p>
<p>Delivery of quality services means simple and quick access to the forms, data and information needed without having to log on to separate systems. Citrix solutions help to reduce the complexity of IT in remote offices and to centralise infrastructure so as to create consistent technology standards and increase efficiencies for users.</p>
<p>“The Victorian Government was looking for ways to improve its delivery of services to citizens and increase end-user satisfaction and productivity,” said Gary O’Brien, Area Vice President Australia and New Zealand, Citrix Systems. “With so many desktops and devices throughout the Victorian Government we were able to offer a solution that simplifies IT management and provides a better user experience regardless of which office or network employees are working from.”</p>
