Discovery & Suitability. Use Access AppScan to automatically discover your applications before running them through thorough suitability screening with Access AppScan within minutes. This will detect any components or objects (such as shortcuts, drivers, and similar) that might make an application a non-suitable candidate for MSIX
Wondering which applications in your estate could be more easily moved onto a Windows Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) than others but don't want to run them through a whole lengthy and costly app compatibility testing cycle? Meet Access AppScan, our new light-weight app suitability testing tool!
It essentially explodes an application out into all its different components and registry settings (e.g., Java or DLLS). This allows you to search through the components or composites across different apps and run more complex reporting.
Unlike other app compatibility tools, AppScan is easy to use, intuitive and runs very quickly. It hardly requires any configuration and can be hosted either online (as a Web Service running on Microsoft Azure) or be implemented as an on-premise application. It can be utilized as a stand-alone product or as part of a manual process or an automated Access Capture workflow. If you are using it in conjunction with Access Capture, you would first upload or create an MSI and then run AppScan to check for VDI suitability as part of your discovery.
IT Transformation Managers, IT Migration Managers, or your Application Packaging team can simply self-service this functionality once AppScan is pointed at their app repository. If there is no central repository, they can also upload the MSI in question by using a wizard-driven, step-by-step workflow to find out if the application has boot time services, has no shortcuts, and meets other criteria that would impact its suitability.
