The IE IDC Team

I am Puneet Arora and I’m a Program Manager on the IE team at Microsoft’s India Development Center (IDC).  The team started just 6 months ago and has just the right mix of fresh engineering graduates full of zeal, people with prior experience and some old time Microsoft veterans.  The focus for the IDC team is making IE great for IT professionals.  For IE7 for both Windows XP and Windows Vista, the team has been working on some great features –

  • Group Policy - making more than 100 brand new settings available as policies in IE7.  This work empowers the IT admins to allow them to customize IE7 for enterprise users.

  • Compatibility Logging - when a security feature blocks a behavior, IE7 can be configured to write that failure to a log. Customers can identify issues that they might see due to new IE7 security features.

  • Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) - This will be an opt-in feature which will help us in getting the next level of feedback on how our users actually use our product, without getting any personally identifiable information. It will help us in further improving our features and tracking customer satisfaction.

  • IEAK 7 (Internet Explorer Administration Kit) - IEAK allows deployment, customization & management of IE packages for corporations.
