Citrix, Tibco become Cloud Software Group, restore NetScaler • The Registry

The deal to merge Citrix and Tibco is complete, and the two companies are now divisions of a new entity called Cloud Software Group — as is NetScaler, the application delivery controller brand that Citrix acquired way back in 2005. but recently rebranded as “Citrix ADC”.

NetScaler’s return as a standalone entity was not hinted at during the protracted process of taking Citrix private and injecting it into Tibco.

The group that achieved the cloud.com domain also named Jaspersoft, ibi and ShareFile as members.

The latter is Citrix’s enterprise cloud storage, Jaspersoft and ibi are Tibco acquisitions, the former provides dashboards and reporting ware, and the latter offers the business intelligence products that Tibco acquired along with Information Builders in 2021.

The company has released a statement and accompanying FAQ making it clear that the Citrix and Tibco product lines will not be merged. The decision to designate NetScaler, ibi, Jaspersoft, and ShareFile as separate group members is explained no differently than with the throwaway line that “major solution lines from Citrix and TIBCO will also exist as separate business units within the Cloud Software Group.”

Speculations have already surfaced about the code for the divisions up for sale. This result is considered very likely because, as explained by The American ProspectusThe complex private equity deal to merge Citrix and Tibco proved unexpectedly difficult to complete given rising interest rates and economic uncertainty.

Abhilash Verma, NetScaler’s Veep for application delivery and security product management, outlined what it means to be a member of the Cloud Software Group.

“The acquisition of Citrix by a private company gives us the opportunity to focus on doing what is best for our customers,” he wrote, seemingly implying that Citrix has not always done so. “We plan to invest more in NetScaler, which includes improving integration with Citrix VDI and DaaS solutions, as well as advancing the functionality our traditional NetScaler customers need to modernize their IT.” Verma also noted that NetScaler “which can provide transaction telemetry in multiple formats (Appflow, Logstream, IPFIX) to any other third party or homegrown tool for later analysis”.

Now that it’s branded again, the NetScaler division will “double down on integration, giving our customers the freedom to choose the tools that best suit them.”

Citrix employees, meanwhile, have visited websites such as The Layoff with news of requests to use all remaining paid time off and other incidents that have been taken as indicators of imminent layoffs. ®
