Is this a tool for packagers?
Yes, and No. Application Manager Online helps your packagers to keep track of the process, but it has no packaging tools at this point.
Do different available feature sets depend on subscription level?
No. All Application Manager Online features are available to all users from the very begging and do not depend on subscription level. Even if you only have 4 applications in your DML all solution features will be available.
We already have AM installed in our datacenter. Will it be possible to migrate our exiting DML to new solution?
Yes. We will migrate all you existing DML including all application entries, documentation and files without any additional consultancy charges.
How do you calculate Application Manager Online consumption?
The Application Manager Online pricing model is based on the solution used by the end-customer. The total amount of registered application entries in the end-customer application portfolio library is collected every month. Registered application phase and state is not taken into account as well as AppUpdate due to the fact that AppUpdate service has its own pricing model. Also the historical data of precious invoices has no impact on next months consumption calculation.
Do we need SCCM?
No, there is no requirement for SCCM. If you do have SCCM you can benefit from Application Manager Online integration with that system and you can use features like Template Deployment. Without SCCM you need to install the application on the machines dedicated for testing manually.
Can Application Manager Online work with both SCCM 2012 and the current branch?
Yes. Both versions are supported, and you can even set up Application Manager Online to support multiple deployment severs in parallel. This is quite common when you are doing an SCCM side-by-side upgrade.
