Today we release a new version of Exact Event Manager which includes fixes for several issues reported by our customers. Next to that, this new version will support Microsoft Windows Server 2016 as a supported operating system to run Exact Event Manager on.
In January 2016, Exact made the CRM for Citrix app available for iOS and Android to see how the mobile apps for Exact Synergy Enterprise could work for a specific MDM environment.
After a year it is clear that supporting MDM environments in this way is very complex. Therefore, Exact has decided to support MDM environments via a different way and remove the CRM for Citrix app from the app stores.
As of this week Exact Synergy product update 258 and Exact Globe product update 413 are in Controlled Release. This means that customers who participate in the controlled release phase can download the new product updates. These product updates offer several new functions and improvements.
The Exact Field Service app was already available on iOS for some time now, but not yet for Android devices. As of today, service engineers can also use the app on an Android device, both tablets and phones.
The Spring ’18 Release is Exact’s first Seasonal Release. As of this spring, we’ll present all of our latest product innovations in large scale updates four times a year.
Devices with iOS 9.0 or higher will (by default) use the HTTP/2 protocol. This protocol is saver and faster. The HTTP/2 protocol is supported as of Windows Server 2016. However, NTLM authentication (also known as Windows Authentication) is not supported by HTTP/2.
