According to the CRN Fast Growth Study, virtualization is the number one technology that VARs are investing in over the next year. The CRN Virtualization 100 list highlights the most compelling virtualization vendors and solutions to best meet the growing needs of the channel. These featured vendors were selected based on their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging virtualization has to offer.

App-DNA is the pioneer and global leader in Application Intelligence, taking application compatibility automation to the next level by combining application and business insight. The AppTitude software platform enables enterprise IT teams and system integrators to:

test applications for compatibility, showing results in a clear red/yellow/green “stoplight” report
determine the difficulty and complexity of application deployments
measure the time, cost and risk of virtualization, OS migration and server migration projects
remediate applications for optimal deployment on desired platforms
integrate user and device information to see who the application affects – and how
model delivery options to determine the best forward path
automate application readiness, including creating MSI and Microsoft App-V ready packages
“From server to storage to desktop virtualization, this technology will become a mainstay for businesses large and small and one of the more profitable technologies for VARs to integrate and sell,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “The Virtualization 100 list provides showcases the best virtualization technology solutions to help VARs navigate the virtualization landscape and determine which vendor is best suited to meet their unique needs.”

“When enterprises look to adopt virtualization technologies, their biggest hurdle is usually where to begin. App-DNA helps enterprises and systems integrators scope the time, cost and risk of an App-V, XenDesktop or VDI project, then accelerates the testing, remediation and preparation of applications into virtual formats. Customers who spent 4-6 weeks doing manual testing and remediation on each application can now use AppTitude to deliver arguably more reliable virtual applications in just 1-2 days. Reducing the amount of preparation work and helping ensure the project goes as planned means everyone can move forward with more strategic projects,” said Penny Gralewski, App-DNA Worldwide Marketing Manager. “App-DNA is honored to be recognized in the Virtualization 100 as a leader helping enterprises and system integrators deliver applications in the virtual formats that best suit today’s end-user computing environments.”
