at Citrix (NASDAQ: CTXS) iForum 2003 that Fidelity National Financial
and ABM Industries will showcase their use of Softricity's SoftGrid

During breakout sessions on October 14th and 15th, executives from Fidelity

costs and increase IT responsiveness.
"Corporations derive tremendous benefits from utilizing the Citrix
MetaFrame Access Suite to create an on-demand enterprise, where information

SoftGrid is the industry's first application virtualization solution. It
helps IT overcomes key challenges by deploying applications via
Softricity's patented application virtualization technology -- a protective
virtual run-time "sandbox" environment within which programs execute
without altering the host computer. This eliminates many critical
deployment and management issues, including application conflicts and
lengthy regression testing, and compresses each phase of the application
management process, from deployments to upgrades to patches.
