K1000 - Using to prepare for a Windows XP to Windows 7 Migration
I'm at a clients site who have around 1000 Windows XP and 200 Apple Mac's. They have it deployed and have all the auditing data.
The client tells me that KACE will can tell me which applications are installed and which are Windows 7 compatible.
All I can find is a WMI query-like dump of all the applications installed across the estate. That's 12,000 lines of garbage, drivers and multiple versions of the same programs. There is no aggregation of products suites, licensing requirements and it doesn't tell me if anything is Windows 7 compatible.
The client is pushing me for a report of applications within a couple of days, Red for won't work, Amber for needs upgrading and Green for ok. He doesn't want a dump of all applications and wants it aggregated into business friendly suites.
As far as I can see KACE is just a dump of raw data and at a count of 12,000 application it is impossible to use KACE to deliver what the client wants. This is made worse because all their DOS/Windows 95 Apps don't even show up in KACE because they aren't an "installed application" and it is these they are most worried about.
Does anyone know if KACE can deliver what the client wants and if so any pointers?
