Symantec enters the world of software virtualisation in alliance with ChangeBASE to reduce testing times and ownership costs.
Symantec has teamed up with ChangeBASE to provide its customers with a best of breed solution to reduce testing costs and times for software Virtualisation compatibility. The collaboration enables IT managers to automatically test the managed applications in Symantec's Altiris SVS (software Virtualisation solution) are ready to be virtualised and can report comprehensively on any issues found in just 2 minutes.

To ensure the smooth migration process, customers QA (quality assurance) is an essential process. 70% of the time spent in QA is fixing the same recurring problems found by installing and running the applications, which AOK will automate. Along with SVS layering technique which provides each installed application with a protected environment; there are none of the usual registry or system file clashes that are a constant source of aggravation with traditional Windows setups.

"By using AOK IT Managers can build a case for how using SVS could improve the effectiveness of their next migration and how to budget for it" said Roger Raemaekers, Regional Manager EMEA for Altiris Software Management Solutions. "The obvious benefits of combining these two technologies are there for all to see and customers can now benefit from choosing the software delivery model that works best for them and manage with confidence".

"Joining forces with Symantec means that the manual testing and quality assurance part of the process is now automated and even more accurate, with the addition benefit of speedy identification of any potential issues before resolving them. By using AOK with Altiris SVS, IT Managers can improve the effectiveness of their IT infrastructure , and the case for using Virtualisation in migration projects," John Tate CEO of AOK ChangeBASE comments.
