is anyone working on AppDNA?
How much AppDNA is actually efficient? and how much ROI it is giving in real?
I've seen it used in places and projects that I have been on, but have never driven it (used it) myself. Ive seen the output from AppDNA.
From my experiences, its good for PM's as it gives them guidance on how much work is required for the migration. So makes resource planning and time scaling a lot better - takes out some of the guess work.
But from a packager point of of view, it adds some value. Basically tells you which apps are going to be a pain in the ass and will take awhile. Shifts out the easy wins from the painful ones. I think they sell it as remedial software, but tbh its s*. A apps packager will always have to look at the software anyway and check.
This is from AppDNA usage from about 4 years ago, so lots might have changed.. but probably not the pricing! £££
Accordingto me, AppDNA software is mainly a compatibility testing tool ofyour applications across your OS platforms, Different Browsers andvirtualization setups. It will be mostly used when you are going for Migration of OS withsophisticated testing and outcomes to determine the best planof action. You can also automate application remediation and packagingprocesses to help manage ongoing change.
Below image will explain the various OScompatibility of the imported application into the APPDNA.
THE R,A,G code is best explained inthe below image.
I have not worked much on this tool. Once I imported a MSI andbelieve me for each file inside the MSI, it is generating the compatibilityreport and the best part is, it is giving the best possible remediation if itis not compatible also.
