The Application Migration Workbook

leave a comment »

Is your organization considering upgrading your Windows XP or Windows Vista standard client operating environment to Windows 7 or Windows 8, newer versions of Internet Explorer, or exploring aplication virtualization with Citrix XenApp, or VDI with CitrixXenDesktop? Some companies head off blindly and push ahead for stuff like “imaging” or “user state migration” or “deployment toolkit.” However in my experience with deploying client operating systems in the organization, one factor can easily be overlooked and rubbed off as less important, and this is application compatibility testing. Organizations think it is just a matter of installing the old application into the new operating system and see what happens. This manual testing method is time and resource consuming and does not offer any strategy with regards to remediation.

With Citrix AppDNA, the organization would enjoy a more targeted, systematic approach to application compatibility testing. Find out more about Citrix AppDNA here. And while you’re browsing through the site, check out The Application Migration Workbook to understand the Citrix approach to application compatibility testing.
