Citrix AppDNA (discontinued)

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.

CONNX

CONNX is good for small businesses. What it does well, it does very well but there is a lot that needs improvement. We moved away from it to a managed payroll service with an HRIS as we had issues with having a single admin across multiple companies with privacy issues. We also had half of our users not use the review system due to the functionality and timeout issues. Basically, we had too many initial problems with the system when it was implemented that it became a chore to use. They have improved the system in recent updates, but it was too late for our company.

Pros

Citrix AppDNA (discontinued)

  • Citrix AppDNA has a user friendly interface for admins to use and the product is updated well by Citrix Support.
  • 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.
  • If you have Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop Platinum, AppDNA is included and no additional cost.

CONNX

  • leave requests, balances, reporting.
  • Low cost SMB solution.
  • Decent local support.

Cons

Citrix AppDNA (discontinued)

  • 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.

CONNX

  • The user experience is average. The screens are cluttered. They look dated.
  • There are a lot of timeout issues. doing something like goals and objectives or manager reviews can mean frequently losing work as the system timed out. We were doing the work in word and copy-pasting it to save.
  • No mobile app. The system is very much designed for a large-screen web browser. Sometimes even using the system on a mobile phone was difficult due to the menus.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix AppDNA (discontinued)

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.

CONNX

I wasn't around for the initial implementation, but I did get involved in the recent comparison between Connx and Employment Hero. As we were outsourcing our payroll, we also looked at that provider's HRIS offering. It was better for our needs than CONNX. There is a mobile app. There is cloud access. There is nothing to integrate as it is all covered in the one system: HRIS onboarding links to payroll links to timesheet functionality for our weekly hourly paid staff. Nothing to try and connect together. a complete system in one.

Return on Investment

Citrix AppDNA (discontinued)

  • 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.

CONNX

  • While the system is reasonably priced, we had a huge adoption dropoff. So we were paying for 100+ users but only using 30% of the functionality.
  • It has meant there are different goals/objectives/review processes across multiple companies, as doing it in the system meant lost work.
  • It did definitely give us low-cost functionality for many HR functions so it is a good system, just not a right fit for our business.
