Since the successful release of Scense 8, last November, our development teams have been very busy working on the service release of our next generation workspace management solution. We added scheduled feature enhancements and improvements as well as improvements based on customer and partner feedback. Scense 8.1 will contain over 30 enhancements and improvements. A short list with some examples is available in this blog post.

Oracle Support

Scense 8.1 will offer full Oracle support from versions 9i and up. Oracle still has the largest market share in the RDBMS market (source Gartner 2012) and we will keep supporting the Oracle platform for as long as our customers request us to do so.

Increased flexibility

Because of recurring requests we made some changes to allow our customers to keep using tooling or point solutions already in use, next to Scense functionality. Starting Scense 8.1, our solutions will work nicely next to some well-known tools of companies like Quest, RES and Appsense.

Increased monitoring capabilitiesperformancemonitoring-150x150

We implemented standard Windows performance counters in the Scense engine. The health of your Scense system will be visible and can be monitored in a way that’s most familiar to you.

Improvements in the application delivery protocols

Starting Scense 8 we support Internet delivery protocols for application delivery purposes. We added major improvements in the support of Windows Installer and generic applications.

And many more …

Next to the improvements and features mentioned above we implemented lots of improvements to increase the usability and performance of Scense. The complete list with improvements will be available soon.
