Browsium Whitepaper: Solving IE6 Dependencies in the Enterprise With a Single Browser Solution

Posted by: Browsium Posted date:

We’ve just released a new whitepaper titled “Solving IE6 Dependencies in the Enterprise With a Single Browser Solution“. It’s designed to help IT professionals at any level in the organization better understand the causes of IE6 dependencies in enterprise and how the various solutions to the problem compare. The following is a brief excerpt from the paper:

Business applications have become increasingly web-based in recent years, moving away from traditional ‘heavy client’ applications. This makes the web browser an essential part of day to day functions for the modern information worker. Significant growth of line-of-business web applications occurred early in the new millennium when usage of Internet Explorer 6 (IE6) was particularly strong. Consequently, the custom and off-the-shelf web applications deployed by most organizations were built for, and ultimately dependent on, Microsoft’s proprietary, and now outdated and insecure, browser platform.

During the past decade increased competition helped the browser market mature, drove innovation, and solidified the broad adoption of web standards. The latest versions of all major web browsers are built around these web standards – not proprietary platforms – so many older web applications no longer work properly. Until recently, keeping those old applications working meant staying with older browsers, creating redundant, virtualized infrastructure to support older browsers, or re-writing all IE6-dependent applications. Those painful choices have made it difficult for many enterprises to adopt new technologies that make the organization work faster and better.

Download the paper today, share with your colleagues, even your boss. It’ll make you look smart and you’ll be one step closer to ending your organization’s dependence on IE6.
