Citrix Summit is always an energizing event for channel partners and system integrators – and this year Summit includes a new topic: accelerating application migrations with the recently acquired AppDNA application management software.

Today at Citrix Summit, Citrix enabled system integrator and channel partners to speed enterprise deployments of Windows 7 and XenDesktop with a newly streamlined version of the Citrix AppDNA application management software platform – AppDNA 6.1. The current version of Citrix AppDNA software is available today, however, the new 6.1 version coming soon will make it easier for partners to install, setup and get started with enterprise migrations. Simplifying the initial application assessment processes means projects get started even more quickly – helping enterprises and partners better reach migration deadlines.

Also included in AppDNA 6.1 is further opportunity to integrate user, machine and group information from the Citrix Desktop Transformation Accelerator. First released with AppDNA 6.0, the sharing of data between the Lakeside Software no-charge trial found in the Citrix Desktop Transformation Accelerator and the AppDNA application management software and provides even more insight to user, devices and groups affected by application compatibility issues. Knowing application issues – and who is affected by those issues – helps give the clear picture needed for migration planning. As a result, OS migrations and virtualization projects take less time and budget while having more assurance of success.

Citrix AppDNA brings automated application compatibility and application migration preparation, plus highly accurate application management decision-making to shorten deployment preparation cycles. Citrix customers and partners have been using AppDNA software for years, but bringing AppDNA into the Citrix product family means even more OS migrations and virtualization projects will have the deep insight that AppDNA brings to speed deployments.

 Join the AppDNA sessions and instructor led labs at Summit or the AppDNA breakout sessions and instructor led labs at Citrix Synergy.   Stop by the Solutions Expo to visit AppDNA in the Citrix booth.
