    • ChangeBASE Background
      • Software author of AOK – the market leader in automated application compatibility assessment and REMEDIATION
      • BETA Launched Feb 2007 > Full Product launched Oct 2007
      • Global client base:
      • Fortune 1000 and FTSE500, Private , Public Sector clients
      • North America, EMEA, APAC, Australasia, India, South Africa
      • Focus is to:
      • Reduce costs
      • Simplify processes
      • Speed deployments, and
      • Improve quality and consistency of applications
    • What does actually do?
      • Tests against over 250,000+ rules, to detect, report, and act on any identified issues or conflicts
      • AOK then AUTOMATICALLY fixes the majority of the issues through application of rule-based logic, and the creation of MST files
      • AOK dramatically reduces the time to test for application and website compatibility when migrating to:
    • Migration Process and Where AOK Fits
    • In our recent emedia survey, 66% of responding subscribers indicated that the primary challenge to migrating to any new Windows platform was application compatibility.
      The good news is with you can get 95+% of your apps working on Windows 7
    • What Types of files does analyse?
      Microsoft Setup Executables (EXE's)
      WinInstall Setup Files
      Wise Installation packages (WSI, WSE and EXE)
      MSI Application packages (MSI, MST, MSP)
      Microsoft App-V files (SFT )
      Radia (REFWI)
      Radia (IPR)
      Website source code
    • The AOK Product Family
    • Windows 7, 64-Bit and App-VMigration Challenges
      • 70% of engagements accelerated Windows 7 migration as a result
      • Scale of applications tested ranges from 50 apps to 12,000 apps
      • During test automatically fix around 10% of these apps during the engagement
      • Uniquely show pain point and offer a solution
      From the large portfolio of applications across the Win 7 engagements the following application compatibility results were generated;
      From these results the top application compatibility issues were;
      Our Findings
    • Windows 7 64-bit Compatibility Issues
      AOK Plugins:
      DirectX Video Acceleration API
      Non-Supported VDM Functions
      PAE and AWE API
      Un-Signed Driver
      Windows 16 bit Deprecated API
      Summary: Un-Signed Drivers the biggest cause of non-fixable issues
    • App-V Client Compatibility
      AOK Plugins:
      No Shortcut Check
      Non-Supported Reboot Requirements
      Hard Coded References Scan
      Non-Supported Driver
      Non-Supported Service Installations
      Summary: Device Drivers the biggest cause of non-fixable (RED) issues
    • The Effect of Automated Fixing
      Total apps assessed = 8,500+ in 8 accounts in less than 2 weeks
      Analysis before Fixing:
      Approximate averages:
      Green = 34%
      Amber = 61%
      Red = 5%
      After AOK Automated Fixing:
      Approximate Averages:
      Green = 92%
      Amber = 3%
      Red = 5%
      AOK Fix-it
      To Manually Test and Remediate 500 applications, it will take you between 10-15 man months. With AOK you can Test and Fix 500 applications in less than ONE BUSINESS WEEK!
    • Client Examples:
      Global Bank: Tested 4,754 applications
      Global Engineering & Construction Company:
      Tested 1690 applications
    • Migration Challenges
    • Microsoft Office Migration Challenges
      • Office and 3rd party application integration levels has increased in last few years
      • Making migrations more complex
      • Office has grown to become a major component of the workstation build
      • A build update may be required
      • Many applications are expecting services and settings provided by older versions of Office
      • Office 2010 will have a new directory structure
      • Poorly packaged application portfolio’s may have hard-coded dependencies on previous versions of Office
      • Moving from Office 2000 to Office 2010 is a very significant upgrade and will affect large numbers of application packages.
    • Office 2010 Compatibility Plugins
      AOK Office 2010 Plugins:
      Deprecated API Analysis
      Deprecated Component Analysis
      Deprecated File Format Analysis
      Deprecated IISAM Driver Analysis
      Migration Registry Setting Analysis
    • Office 2010 Compatibility Summary
      • Organizations moving from Office 2000, XP, and 2003 should also include the Office 2007 AOK Plugins
      • Office 2010 migrations may be more complex than Windows 7 for document-centric organizations
      • Migrating to Office 2010 Expectations;
      From Office 2000: Difficult
      From Office XP: Moderate
      From Office 2003: Moderate
      From Office 2007: Relatively straightforward
    • Internet Explorer 8/9
      Compatibility Challenges
    • IE Compatibility Overview
      Grouped into 3 Areas;
