New AppTitude 3.5 Adds Support for Citrix XenApp Virtualization To Leading Application Compatibility Testing Solution


AppDNA, the worldwide leader in compatibility testing for application environments, today announced the general availability of its AppTitude 3.5 solution. The new release adds support for the Citrix® XenApp™ application delivery solution for both hosted and streamed applications. A beta for the XenApp support was introduced at the Citrix Summit event in October 2008 and was tested by a wide range of Citrix customers and partners. AppTitude 3.5 provides business benefits that include vastly reducing the time, cost and risks associated with deployment of OS migrations, software upgrades, virtualization and other changes.

What’s New in AppTitude 3.5
The new release of AppTitude™ allows organizations to check for application compatibility with XenApp (versions 3.0 through 5) and Windows Terminal Services. The new release has two separate reporting modules – the Server-Based Computing (SBC) Module for compatibility with XenApp hosted and Terminal Services configurations and the Virtualization Manager for XenApp streaming. AppTitude 3.5 supports two types of analysis – static and runtime – including an extended runtime analysis that can import customized OS images. This allows the AppTitude algorithms to adapt to the build configuration of the target OS platforms, which generate more accurate and relevant reporting for those customers with customized applications. It also offers new performance and security analyses that are essential for assessing application compatibility for XenApp and Terminal Services environments. A new 64-bit report in the Server and Desktop Compatibility Manager provides a dedicated view on application suitability for 64-bit computing. New support for external data source lookups enables third party and vendor databases, such as Microsoft’s list of certified Vista-compatible applications, to supplement AppTitude’s direct analysis.
“Companies are looking to application virtualization and XenApp to reduce the cost and complexity of managing and delivering applications,” said Bill Hartwick, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Citrix. “AppTitude 3.5 can help identify up front what changes, if any, need to be made to the application to deliver it with XenApp. By providing rapid and comprehensive visibility into their potential application compatibility issues, AppTitude 3.5 enables our partners to help customers more quickly and cost-effectively manage their applications in our virtualization environment.”
“With AppTitude 3.5, we can now provide unprecedented insight into application DNA for those organizations delivering applications with XenApp,” said Mike Welling, CEO of AppDNA. “With its extended runtime analysis and enhanced reporting capabilities, AppTitude 3.5 provides more accurate reporting and an even more powerful analytic dashboard for dramatically improving XenApp rollouts.”
Pricing and Availability
AppTitude 3.5 for Windows platforms and AppTitude Virtualization Manager for Citrix XenApp are available immediately from AppDNA. AppTitude pricing varies based on configuration, ranging from $5,000 for a typical pilot installation to a starting range of $50,000 for enterprise-wide deployments.
