Automated application migration
As a key component of WSS, Application Migration ensures end users always have the applications they need after a Windows migration or other servicing activity. IT can ensure the right apps and versions are deployed and end users have what they need to be productive.
Features and benefits
Rationalized software catalog
Traditional software inventories include many non-application entries: when combined with multiple application name variations, only 1 in 100 entries may be relevant.
The 1E Catalog cuts out the noise, giving IT control over the apps and versions it has deployed.
End users stay productive
Applications are what makes a user productive but many Windows servicing operations (such as migrating to a new device or a clean install upgrade to Windows 10) result in lost apps for the user.
1E’s Application Migration ensures the latest and approved versions of the apps are ready for use after an update.
Once IT has visibility into the applications that have been deployed and how they’re being used, simple rules can be defined to remove waste or standardize around preferred applications and versions.
“We were going to have to hire more than $600,000 worth of labor to come in and do the process. The other option was automation.”Read the Case StudyKenny Covington

“Application Migration allowed IT to set specific migration rules. This was not only significantly more efficient, it was also millions of dollars cheaper than the previous automated approach.”Read the Case Study
Identify real applications and normalize all variations of each application name.
Automate app rules
Eliminate manual work for applications installs, upgrades, and reclaims across the organization.
Allow users to review and manage exactly what changes are going to be applied.
1E customer William Min (from IBM Services) recently contributed to My IT Forum, sharing some important advice on managing applications during a Win10 upgrade, and citing some of the ways 1E was able to help.
“Application Migration was not only significantly more efficient, it was also millions of dollars cheaper than the previous automated approach. The ability to view a machine prior to migration saved precious build time.”
