Meeting Agenda:

  • Internet Explorer 11 and Browser standards
  • Webrtc and Video Conferencing
  • Standards Review

Meeting Recap:

  • Updates from ITD included the plan to move the Windows 10 test site to a new SharePoint platform that will be more accessible

 

  •  Internet Explorer 11
    • In January 2016, Microsoft will stop supporting versions of IE older than 11, and the new Edge browser will be more like Chrome or Firefox in how it updates and patches
    • Some parts of ConnectND don’t work in IE11 but it is being worked on. There may also be issues with Risk Management, ArcGIS Online, and AssetWorks. If users are finding issues with ConnectND or other enterprise apps, it is critical for them to submit Heat Tickets so the problems can be addressed.

 

  • Webrtc and Video Conferencing were to be discussed but the team ran out of time and will address it at a future meeting.

 

  • Mobile Device Management
    • The team discussed again what options are available for agencies that are looking for more Mobile Device Management features than our current solution offers, without a large cost increase.
    • ITD is considering a Proof of Technology trial with another product and would welcome agencies to participate. More news to come.

 

  • Standards Review
    • The team discussed proposed changes to some standards that were done several months ago, and felt the Application Suite standard was probably still needed, especially in light of the recent issues with browsers and the need to maintain one browser as the supported browser for enterprise applications.

 

  • Future topics/open discussion
    • A remote control solution is still being worked on but is taking more time than expected.
