North America Focus Group Meeting Summary

Citrix hosted the North America Focus Group and the TSANet Board of Directors Meetings on February 6, 2019 in Ft Lauderdale, Florida.  Actian, Cisco, Citrix, Dell EMC, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NetApp, Red Hat, Symantec, VMware and others had an opportunity to review the new TSANet Connect system and provide feedback.


TSANet Connect System Review

With development of TSANet Connect almost completed, members had a hands-on system review and provided feedback that will be used to make final changes before go-live.   The following areas of the system were tested by the team:

  1. TSANet Connect – Member Admin features.
  2. TSANet Connect – Requesting Member Collaboration.

After the hands-on demonstration, the team discussed training and deployment details.     Members will be migrated to the new system in phases providing an opportunity to do training and onboarding to the new system.   It is expected that the first members will go live before the end of March.
