ChangeBASE automates the three resource-intensive processes around application migration– analysis, remediation and conversion
Computer software developer Quest Software has acquired UK-based software provider ChangeBASE. The acquisition help companies to develop a user-centric management focus for their Windows application, desktop, mobile, and cloud environments.
ChangeBASE automates the three resource-intensive processes around application migration– analysis, remediation and conversion by offering an entire product portfolio. Before deployment to new or upgraded platforms the products automatically test and fix applications, which can speed up packaging delivery by 75% while improving accuracy and manageability.
For achieving platform updates and migrations ChangeBASE offerings enable IT to addresses the issues including desktop upgrades from Windows XP to Windows 7; switching from 32 bit (x86) to 64 bit (x64) versions of Windows; web application compatibility during IE6 to IE8/9 browser upgrades.
In addition, ChangeBASE addresses the issues including application delivery using Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Session Host; application delivery using application virtualisation from Microsoft, Symantec, Citrix, and VMware and updating from earlier versions of Microsoft Office to Office 2007/2010.
The ChangeBASE suite of modules provides the necessary capabilities to analyse Windows applications for suitability and the ChangeBASE suite converts and deploys the updated applications into an efficient production environment. This offerings set delivers immediate value to companies that need to assess the application suitability for deployment with their desktop virtualisation technologies.
Quest Software Client Management and Performance Monitoring senior vice-president and general manager Shayne Higdon said by integrating Quest’s proven portfolio for managing both physical and virtual desktop environments with ChangeBASE’s ability to efficiently address some of the most pressing issues around application compatibility, Quest becomes a single strategic provider that uniquely delivers fast application migration to new platforms, devices and delivery methods, while minimising risk and cost.
"The result is a newly empowered IT, one that is able to deliver a productive, protected, dynamic user workspace for every user on every device," said Higdon.
