I’m pleased to announce that 1E Shopping 4.7 is now available.
It has four new enhancements:
As organizations progress with their Windows 7 migration project they can end up with a confusing situation where they don’t know which apps are supported on their new machine.
Shopping 4.7 now allows the apps presented to the user to be filtered by what’s compatible with their machine.
This new capability makes Shopping an even more essential solution to getting off XP before April 2014
Enhanced App Mapping
The App Mapping feature, introduced in 2012 allows applications to be migrated as part of the Windows 7 process. The user will automatically get a replacement app based on their usage patterns and the app mapping rule configured by IT.
4.7 builds on this to give the admin a UI to configure the rules and allows different mapping rules for different departments or roles.
This feature requires the App Mapping solution which is comprised of Shopping, AppClarity and the App Mapping Solutions Accelerator.
2012 Migration Assistance
Many organizations are moving to SCCM 2012. For large organizations this may be a complex and lengthy process.
Shopping makes one aspect of this much simpler – Shopping can provide a single portal to cater to users on the new SCCM 2012 infrastructure in parallel with the legacy 2007 as each business unit is migrated during the transition process.
Extended Platform Support
Shopping 4.7 adds support for Windows 8 clients, Internet Explorer 10, Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 (including SP1)
I’d like to thank the amazing team we have here at 1E and all the hard work they’ve put into making some of the amazing additions in this release.
