Evaluate applications

May 14, 2013

To evaluate and solve compatibility issues for deploying desktop and web applications, or for operating system upgrades, the AppDNA application migration software provides definitive information to help accelerate your deployment.

AppDNA helps you determine the effects of application issues and proposed implementations on your environment, devices, and users.

Because AppDNA integrates with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and Active Directory, you can easily import applications that are in ConfigMgr and use their silent switches during any automated repackaging. You can also:

  • Create application groups that represent your organization's structure in AppDNA
  • View the reports and assessment results according to these groups

AppDNA performs a static analysis of each application's files, registry entries, and API use (that is, the application's "DNA") to assess whether the application is suitable for:

  • A variety of platforms, including new versions of Windows servers and clients
  • A 64-bit server environment
  • A shared server-based deployment
  • Multiple simultaneous users in separate sessions
  • Application virtualization with App-V

When AppDNA detects potential application issues on a particular platform, it provides detailed information about steps that you can take to resolve the issue.

For full documentation of AppDNA, including system requirements, installation instructions, and getting started information, see the AppDNA in eDocs.
