Government Speeds Performance 50 Percent, Improves Manageability With New Browser
The Isle of Man Government serves 80,000 citizens with a full range of services, from Health and Education to Social Services. Employees used the Windows XP operating system and the Windows Internet Explorer 6 and 7 Internet browsers to access Web applications and intranet and Internet sites. However, the browsers did not consistently provide the speed, efficiency, and accuracy that employees needed to do their jobs. In 2009, the government is migrating to Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 8, and the government reports more accurate rendering, better stability, and faster Web application performance in the browser.
