The ThinApp plug-in for AOK VReady-It brings a new dimension to application virtualisation

Market leader provides cost saving solution for enterprise virtualisation objectives

London, 18th October 2011 – ChangeBASE, the world leader in automated application compatibility testing, remediation and conversion today announced the launch of its AOK VReady-It plug-in for VMware ThinApp.

With first look opportunities being offered on the ChangeBASE stand at the VMworld Europe 2011 event in Copenhagen, this latest plug-in is designed specifically for VMware ThinApp v4.6 and enables organisations to convert their desktop MSI applications into the ThinApp format. This new functionality builds on AOK’s current capability to automatically test and remediate applications for virtual compatibility, ensuring that they are ready for deployment to the VMware platform.

Virtualisation is now one of the key deployment objectives for organisations of every size. The cost and ‘Always On’ benefits of application virtualisation make it an attractive option for businesses, with Gartner predicting a rise in virtualisation deployments in 2011 at a rate of 23.7% CAGR compared to 2010. ChangeBASE has seen direct evidence of this rising trend across their work with Fortune 500 and FTSE250 companies, with half of its current customers employing virtualisation tool AOK Virtualise-It.

“The ThinApp plug-in for AOK VReady-It brings a new dimension to application virtualisation. Organisations that are testing and remediating their applications for virtual compatibility clearly need to deploy those applications to their platform of choice. To be able to offer an automated solution to accelerate both of these aspects of ThinApp implementation really differentiates ChangeBASE from our competitors and to be able to announce this at VMworld Europe 2011 is phenomenal,” commented Greg Lambert, Chief Technology Officer at ChangeBASE.

The AOK VReady-It plug-in for ThinApp enables:

• Automated bulk conversion of desktop applications into ThinApp virtual format
• Dramatic time reduction compared to manual conversion of applications for virtual platforms
• Conversion solution for legacy applications that cannot be migrated to new operating systems
• Ability to deliver a single executable with no dependencies
• Significant savings of time and resource

The AOK ThinApp plug-in will be generally available within the next 30 days and will be distributed through the ChangeBASE partner network.
