    Announcing the Enterprise Site Discovery Toolkit for IE11

    Today, we’re announcing a new capability in Internet Explorer 11 that allows IT Pros to discover which of their Enterprise line of business applications are truly critical and used by their users. Together with Enterprise Mode IE, this toolkit helps simplify Enterprise upgrades. Download the Enterprise Site Discovery Toolkit for IE11 today and learn more about it on Technet.

    Upgrading to the latest version of Windows typically requires Enterprises to do full line of business app compatibility testing with the latest version of Internet Explorer. What makes this a difficult task for most Enterprises is that they often do not know which of their catalog of internal line of business applications are critical and used by their employees. Often times this leads IT Pros to test all of their internal apps, even ones that may not be used, which can be a costly and time consuming process. In addition to testing, it can be difficult to mitigate compatibility issues without knowing more about how the application is built.

    The Enterprise Site Discovery Toolkit provides a way for an IT Pro to better understand how their users are browsing with Internet Explorer 11. This toolkit enables collecting information from Internet Explorer 11 about all sites that are visited by Enterprise users to build an inventory of sites used in the Enterprise. This information will help IT Pros prioritize which applications they should focus their app compatibility testing with Internet Explorer. This toolkit also provides additional information on how the site is designed and used by Internet Explorer and that information can then be used to populate the Enterprise Mode site list, mitigating compatibility issues of critical sites.

    What information is collected?

    By default, the data collection is turned off. When collection is enabled, data will be collected from all sites visited by users with Internet Explorer 11. Data is collected during each browsing event and is associated to the browsed URL, shown here. This data collection has a negligible impact on Internet Explorer performance.
