    • 20. Reduce costs
    • 21. Simplify processes
    • 22. Speed deployments, and
    • 23. 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
    • 24. AOK then AUTOMATICALLY fixes the majority of the issues through application of rule-based logic, and the creation of MST files
    • 25. AOK dramatically reduces the time to test for application and website compatibility when migrating to:
  • Migration Process and Where AOK Fits
  • 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.
    The good news is with you can get 95+% of your apps working on Windows 7
  • 27. 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
  • 28. The AOK Product Family
  • 29. Windows 7, 64-Bit and App-VMigration Challenges
  • 30.
    • 70% of engagements accelerated Windows 7 migration as a result
    • 31. Scale of applications tested ranges from 50 apps to 12,000 apps
    • 32. During test automatically fix around 10% of these apps during the engagement
    • 33. 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
  • 34. 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
  • 35. 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
  • 36. 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!
  • 37. Client Examples:
    Global Bank: Tested 4,754 applications
    Global Engineering & Construction Company:
    Tested 1690 applications
  • 38. Migration Challenges
  • 39. Microsoft Office Migration Challenges
    • Office and 3rd party application integration levels has increased in last few years
    • 40. Making migrations more complex
    • 41. Office has grown to become a major component of the workstation build
    • 42. A build update may be required
    • 43. Many applications are expecting services and settings provided by older versions of Office
    • 44. Office 2010 will have a new directory structure
    • 45. Poorly packaged application portfolio’s may have hard-coded dependencies on previous versions of Office
    • 46. 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
  • 47. Office 2010 Compatibility Summary
    • Organizations moving from Office 2000, XP, and 2003 should also include the Office 2007 AOK Plugins
    • 48. Office 2010 migrations may be more complex than Windows 7 for document-centric organizations
    • 49. Migrating to Office 2010 Expectations;
    From Office 2000: Difficult
    From Office XP: Moderate
    From Office 2003: Moderate
    From Office 2007: Relatively straightforward
