UK IT solutions provider and browser management specialist enable organisations to solve IE6-dependency issue without app rewrites or need for virtualisation
Reading, Berkshire – 22nd September 2011: CDG, a leading provider of IT solutions for enterprise IT environments, today announced a partnership with Browsium, providing UK organisations with an enterprise browser management solution that enables IE6-dependent line-of-business applications to run natively on new OS and browser platforms—without changing a single line of code.
CDG is Browsium’s go-to-market partner in the UK for its UniBrows solution, which provides Web Application Continuity to organisations as they move to Windows 7 and provides centralised control over browsers and web applications. UniBrows is a lightweight browser add-on that is easy and inexpensive to deploy and requires no new infrastructure investment to support it.
By simply installing UniBrows on PCs running Windows 7 or Windows XP, enterprises can continue to use all their IE6-dependent applications within an IE8 and IE9 tab, without the need for app redevelopment or use of complex and expensive virtualisation solutions.
“Browser compatibility is blocking Windows 7 migration plans for many private and public sector organisations. If application continuity can not be guaranteed projects become derailed,” commented Oren Taylor, director at CDG. “Browsium addresses the issue of IE6-dependency head-on providing a very simple way to keep web services available throughout IT transformation and beyond as well as giving customers the ability to centrally manage their web app environments.”
“We have seen demand from organisations around the world that are trapped on Windows XP and IE6 because of prior web application investments,” said Gary Schare, president of Browsium. “Through our Web Application Continuity approach, these organisations have the freedom to upgrade and reap the benefits of new platforms while extending the ROI of their business-critical applications.”
In addition to supporting IE6-dependencies, UniBrows provides control over all IE settings, freeing customers from the painful trade–off of security versus compatibility. With UniBrows, enterprise organisations can manage IE settings at the web application or even web page level.
Sold as a software subscription with pricing tiered by the number of PCs in the organisation and available immediately, CDG is providing Browsium UniBrows in the UK as part of its portfolio of enterprise IT services and solutions. Organisations interested in further information or a free web demonstration can contact CDG on +44 (0) 118 963 7977 or email Browsium@cdguk.com.
CDG is also running an event on 11th October 2011 – 9.30-12pm, at St Anne’s Manor, Bracknell, UK, with Matt Heller, CEO and Founder of Browsium to help organisations planning a migration from XP to develop their web application continuity plans. The seminar is free to attend and includes a light breakfast. Organisations can contact CDG to register for the event or for further information.
Founded in 2010, Browsium Inc. creates enterprise-ready software solutions, enabling organisations to extend the life of existing line of business web applications as they deploy new operating systems and browser platforms to their client PCs. Browsium’s first product, UniBrows, promises to revolutionise browser compatibility be allowing legacy IE6-dependent web applications to run on Windows 7 and IE8 on Windows XP without modifying a single line of code.
