Quest Software earlier this morning announced that it has acquired ChangeBASE, a privately-held software provider based in the UK, which specializes in automated application analysis, remediation and conversion for target platforms including Windows 7 and 8, Internet Explorer 8 and 9, Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Session Host, VDI, and Application Virtualization.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The acquisition represents an expansion of Quest’s product portfolio that allows companies to develop a user-centric management focus for their Windows application, desktop, mobile, and cloud environments.
ChangeBASE offers an entire product portfolio that automates the three most resource-intensive processes around application migration– analysis, remediation and conversion. The products automatically test and fix applications before deployment to new or upgraded platforms, which can speed up packaging delivery by 75 percent while improving accuracy and manageability.
This solution set delivers immediate value to companies that need to assess the application suitability for deployment with their desktop virtualization technologies (Terminal Server, Remote Desktop Session Host, or VDI).
In these instances, ChangeBASE provides an essential on-ramp for adoption and expansion of Quest vWorkspace. Organizations can leverage the two solutions to rapidly assess their application estate, and determine application productivity once deployed from vWorkspace.
