Worried about customised applications? Test them fast with Quest's ChangeBASE solution set

Last week, members of the ChangeBASE Professional Services Team were busy conducting a partner-hosted proof of concept for a global financial organisation based in the Netherlands. The company is looking to migrate an as yet unknown amount of applications from Windows XP to Windows 7 x86, whilst also getting as many as possible (up to 90%) virtualised using App-V. 

The application estate is, as is typically the case, a mixture of batch file, EXE, VBS and MSI/MST, with these last being heavily customised for the client’s environment to the point that they simply won’t install on a machine that isn’t joined to the company domain. Quite a challenge on the application compatibility front.

It took just 30 minutes to upload and test a sample of applications for compatibility with Windows 7 and App-V - manually, this would have taken the best part of a week. Here's what the analysis revealed:

Windows 7 compatibility

Virtualisation: App-V compatibility

The ChangeBASE solution set revealed that the majority of the sampled application did not flag up any compatibility issues. What's more, 95% of the Windows 7 Amber issues that were identified can be automatically remediated, leaving your organisation's costly skilled resource to focus their efforts where they are most needed. 

For more information on how Quest's ChangeBASE solution can help your organisation to migrate faster, safe in the knowledge that application functionality will not be compromised, please visit the website. To arrange a web demonstration or POC, please get in contact with our Sales team.
