Additionally, Asset Manager DE helps you pinpoint unused applications so they can be retired. Combined with the application compatibility testing and remediation capabilities of ChangeBASE, you can use Asset Manager DE to simply manage the entire lifecycle of your next application migration—as well as to manage the application’s life after the move.
