Internet Explorer 11 - Enterprise Mode

Internet Explorer 11 includes the opportunity to use the browser in the so-called Enterprise Mode which allows the use of old web applications. At the university, such applications requiring a compatibility mode include, for example, Talous SAP, SAP HR (also when used over the VPN portal) as well as the hardware register, the group directory administration tool and Altiris SD.

If an application which has previously worked in Internet Explorer no longer works in Internet Explorer 11 or if there are problems with it, you can use it in the Enterprise Mode compatibility mode.
