In the future, vehicles will see, think and act safely. ZF Friedrichshafen AG is working on solutions to ensure it today. Using solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS), the automotive supplier and 2019 Citrix Innovation Award finalist has created a user-centric digital workspace in which its employees can easily access the technology and information they need to collaborate and deliver the next generation of mobility.
“Within a few decades, we will have 10 billion people living on this planet and they will all need mobility that is clean, safe and affordable,” said Jürgen Sturm, Chief Information Officer, ZF Friedrichshafen AG . “To contribute to this higher purpose is very important to us.”
To achieve its mission, ZF knew it would need to do what it does best: leverage technology to forge new ways of thinking and operating. “The automotive industry is in a time of change,” said Rolf Reinema, VP, IT Workplace, IT Operations and Infrastructure, IT Security. “There’s a lot of volatility and uncertainty and we want to stay ahead and be on the innovative side, and investment in IT and digitalization is a key factor for us.”
So is collaboration. “We are almost 150,000 people spread around the globe and we all need to work together,” said Gerhard Schauer, Head of IT Workplace, ZF Friedrichshafen AG. To enable it, ZF reimagined its IT environment and took a people-first approach to building a modern digital workspace. With Citrix® Workspace™ and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops as its foundation, the workspace allows employees and the contract workers and third parties ZF relies on to quickly and reliably access all of the tools they need to get work done in a single, unified experience.
“Citrix helps us a lot, particularly when it comes to collaborating with outside vendors to give them access to our infrastructure and data in a controlled way,” Reinema said.
With Citrix, ZF spends less time managing technology and more time harnessing it to deliver innovation. “We really use Citrix to have the right things in the right areas to lower our costs for the engineering of parts and gain the flexibility to use new methods to reduce our planning cycle and speed time to market,” Schauer said.
