Which in itself is nothing new for a rapidly growing company, but what has been interesting is the work they are doing around Internet Explorer 9 and getting web applications compatible with the browser. On average 20% of the Fortune 1000 and FTSE 500 companies we will be working with over the next 12 months are looking at deploying IE9 as part of their Windows 7 migration. What’s causing them issues is achieving compatibility and that has led us to revisit the AOK plug-in road map and bring forward some of our scheduled development.
Today we’re announcing AOK IE9 Report Group Plug-ins. In total we’ve developed fourteen plug-ins which address the presentation and operational issues surrounding web application compatibility to this browser. You can read the press release in full here, but in essence we’ve addressed the following issues;
IE9 Presentation Compatibility
The AOK IE9 Plug-ins addresses compatibility issues including; MIME Handling Analysis, Asian font, static text issues and CSS3 Declaration Compatibility. For all of these concerns, the AOK IE9 Plug-ins will test the web application against these known issues and report via the AOK Red Amber Green reporting structure all at the click of a button.
IE9 Operational Compatibility
To coincide with the release of the AOK IE9 Plug-in we’ve created a short video to give an overview of some of the challenges organisations are facing when it comes to web application compatibility and specifically IE9. In the video we also demonstrate the plug-ins so you can see for yourself how they work within the AOK Workbench. You can view the video here.
Check it out; it might just be the solution to your IE9 web application compatibility challenge.
