Legacy collaboration product

Citrix Systems Inc., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has added collaboration capability to its MetaFrame legacy interfacing software. Deploying MetaFrame, users run legacy applications from a virtual terminal on personal computers or laptops. The terminal shows screen shots of the legacy application that are updated 15 times per second. Conferencing Manager allows several parties to tap into one application at the same time.

Citrix is also moving its focus beyond legacy applications and into thin-client computing, said Mark Goldman, the area vice president of government systems for Citrix. By using MetaFrame, an integrator can shift the location of applications from desktop computers to servers, which allows a higher markup than desktops sales while saving customers in software costs.
