App-DNA's application compatibility management software is now being used within Microsoft's Jumpstart optimized desktop, a new offering which brings implementation support to Windows 7 Enterprise, Microsoft Office 2010, and the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP).
Using proofs of concept and pilot programs, the App-DNA AppTitude application compatibility software platform is designed to reduce the time, cost, and risk of Windows 7 migrations, while providing more successful implementations.
Built to highlight issues with application compatibility, App-DNA AppTitude assesses issues and challenges associated with getting applications to successfully run on Windows 7, Microsoft App-V, Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, and 64-bit environments.
According to App-DNA's website, "Through the Microsoft Jumpstart Program, approved partners can use the App-DNA quick-start application compatibility discovery program. App-DNA AppTitude can empower customers with a clear view of the current application 'estate' and application readiness for migration to the key optimized desktop models — Windows 7, App-V, and 64-bit computing. From the assessments and remediations created by AppTitude, partners and enterprises can more efficiently and accurately calculate the effort, resources, and cost associated with a migration project."
"In a recent App-DNA survey, nearly 67% of enterprise and system integrator respondents were using a form of manual testing for their Windows 7, Internet Explorer 8, and App-V implementations. As the optimized desktop becomes a reality in today's enterprise, automating application testing and remediation with a proven, accurate software platform is essential to save time, reduce cost, and guard against risk," said Samit Patel, VP of App-DNA's technology and solutions group. "App-DNA is proud to be an application compatibility partner in the Microsoft Jumpstart program, accelerating optimized desktop projects for enterprises and partners."
