Citrix Acquires App-DNA
At Citrix Synergy 2011 in Barcelona, Citrix announced the acquisition of App-DNA. App-DNA technology adds a significant component to the Citrix Desktop Transformation strategy aimed at helping customers speed deployments of desktop virtualization enterprise-wide. The App-DNA AppTitude™ product enables organizations to quickly and intelligently assess their application portfolio and migration plans.
The addition of App-DNA technology delivers the following customer benefits:
- Rapid Application Portfolio Analysis - The AppTitude platform performs an analysis of an organization's application portfolio to determine any potential install and/or runtime issues associated with application migration. A report is generated that provides the assessment in easy to read red, amber, green format along with an effort calculator that provides project sizing in terms of effort, time and resources required to complete.
- Intelligent Application Remediation - AppTitude provides guidance to an organization for those applications that are determined to have potential compatibility issues. In many cases, the remediation can be provided directly via the AppTitude tools. Organizations now have a confirmed starting point for their migrations, as well as a path forward to ensure the success of the project.
- Automated Application Packaging - AppTitude enables organizations to rapidly deploy applications through automated packaging of applications in Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI), Microsoft App-V or Citrix XenApp® formats.
