Late last week we announced the imminent launch of our web browser compatibility and rendering solution, read the release here. The fact that in 2010 we’re now seeing a ratio of 1.2 web applications to one native application as opposed to the 1 web application for every 10 native applications in 2003, illustrates the rapid increase of web-based applications into the corporate environment.
What we see as the key compatibility challenges facing organisations migrating to IE8 are:
- Compatibility of web-based applications that need to integrate with the browser to enable functionality – for example where services have been deprecated or restricted within IE that are required by the application, such as DEP/NX
- Rendering issues where a website, rather than an application, may not render or display correctly or certain buttons or links may not work
I should say that we have been able to deal with application compatibility issues for web-applications for over a few years but this new plug-in also covers all the pertinent issues of web application compatibility with this latest enhancement also catering for websites, intranets and extranets. And that’s the key to a successful migration.
I’m doing a webinar on Thursday 5th August at 5pm BST. If you’re interested in hearing and seeing more, simply click here.
