Amazon AWS

It's a flexible, simple tool that quickly migrates the data ensuring the data is secured. It helps you to securely encrypt, store, and retrieve credentials for your databases and other services. In AWS, you can train the machine and then migrate

Citrix

Desktop Operating System upgrades and migrations to ensure installed applications are compatible with the new environment. If an environment does not have a lot of locally installed applications and heavily dependent on web applications, cloud applications, and Microsoft App-V, then AppDNA is not going to be beneficial in that organization.

  • It does not take a lot of resources to deploy AppDNA and can be done within a work week even for a large environment.
  • The reports not only show compatible and incompatible applications, but provide suggested solutions for incompatible applications to resolve and make them compatible with new Operating System.

Citrix

  • Citrix AppDNA should get more frequent updates on application compatibility list and provide even more detailed suggestions for fixes and perhaps auto-fix feature for some applications.
  • Compatiblity with legacy Operating Systems could be expanded to include more applications and OS to increase usability.
  • A good essential tool that should be marketed more by Citrix to organizations for usage beyond Citrix environment. Most non-Citrix IT personnel and management are unaware of the benefits of AppDNA and it's ability to help with desktop Operating System migrations.

      Amazon AWS

      ShareGate has many limitations and blockages to migrating the data. Unlike AWS migrates data quickly migrates to the server keeping the data secured. You can also access the source data while migration and the downtime are minimal or hardly there.

      Citrix

      AppDNA is more robust and provide a nice report of application compatibility list to review and segment verified applications from problematic applications. It takes one step further from the Microsoft Windows Migration Tool by providing solutions to fix the problematic applications.

      Return on Investment

      Amazon AWS

      • Set it and forget it for maintaining data consistency - moderate cost, zero to minimal maintenance
      • High touch production data loads into QA - negative ROI engineering time investment far exceeded our predictions

      Citrix

      • AppDNA was relatively easy to deploy with a small team of 3-4 support IT personnel and took a week to deploy and another week for us to configure and use.
      • Great tool to cut down on manual process of testing initial application compatibility before system upgrade.
      • If you are a Citrix Platinum customer, there is no reason not to use this tool and a great way to consider upgrading to Platinum if you are an Advance or Enterprise customer.
      • For a single large organization (over 3000 desktops), if you are planning a desktop Operating System upgrade you need to take a look at AppDNA.
