  24. 24. AOK then AUTOMATICALLY fixes the majority of the issues through application of rule-based logic, and the creation of MST files
  25. 25. AOK dramatically reduces the time to test for application and website compatibility when migrating to:</li></li></ul><li>Migration Process and Where AOK Fits<br />
  26. 26. In our recent emedia survey, 66% of responding subscribers indicated that the primary challenge to migrating to any new Windows platform was application compatibility. <br />The good news is with you can get 95+% of your apps working on Windows 7<br />
  27. 27. What Types of files does analyse?<br />Microsoft Setup Executables (EXE's) <br />WinInstall Setup Files <br />Wise Installation packages (WSI, WSE and EXE) <br />MSI Application packages (MSI, MST, MSP) <br />Microsoft App-V files (SFT )<br />Radia (REFWI)<br />Radia (IPR)<br />URL<br />Website source code<br />

  30. 30. <ul><li>70% of engagements accelerated Windows 7 migration as a result
  31. 31. Scale of applications tested ranges from 50 apps to 12,000 apps
  32. 32. During test automatically fix around 10% of these apps during the engagement

Uniquely show pain point and offer a solution</li></ul>From the large portfolio of applications across the Win 7 engagements the following application compatibility results were generated;<br /> <br />From these results the top application compatibility issues were;<br />Our Findings<br />
  34. 34. Windows 7 64-bit Compatibility Issues<br />AOK Plugins:<br />DirectX Video Acceleration API<br />Non-Supported VDM Functions<br />PAE and AWE API<br />Un-Signed Driver<br />Windows 16 bit Deprecated API<br />Summary: Un-Signed Drivers the biggest cause of non-fixable issues<br />
  35. 35. App-V Client Compatibility<br />AOK Plugins:<br />No Shortcut Check<br />Non-Supported Reboot Requirements<br />Hard Coded References Scan<br />Non-Supported Driver<br />Non-Supported Service Installations<br />Summary: Device Drivers the biggest cause of non-fixable (RED) issues<br />
  36. 36. The Effect of Automated Fixing<br />Total apps assessed = 8,500+ in 8 accounts in less than 2 weeks <br />Analysis before Fixing:<br />Approximate averages:<br />Green = 34% <br />Amber = 61% <br />Red = 5%<br />After AOK Automated Fixing:<br />Approximate Averages:<br />Green = 92%<br />Amber = 3% <br />Red = 5%<br />AOK Fix-it<br />To Manually Test and Remediate 500 applications, it will take you between 10-15 man months.
