Microsoft Enterprise Mobility previews docs.microsoft.com documentation service

Today, Microsoft announced the preview release of docs.microsoft.com, which comes with Enterprise Mobility-content support. Microsoft found that the best way to provide enterprise documentation support was by starting from scratch.

“In short, content matters. We interviewed and surveyed hundreds of developers and IT Pros and sifted through your website feedback over the years on UserVoice. It was clear we needed to make a change and create a modern web experience for content. The first thing we did was evaluate our existing content infrastructure TechNet and MSDN. Both sites are built on a 10-15-year-old brittle codebase with an archaic publishing and deployment system that was never designed to run on the cloud.¬†Our focus was not only on the experience, but also on the content we create and how each of you consume it. For years customers have told us to go beyond walls of text with feature-level content and help them implement solutions to their business problems. We knew that the content we delivered and the platform we built must make it easy for customers to learn and deploy solutions.”

Currently, the docs.microsoft.com preview release has website content for the following subject areas: Advanced Threat Analytics, Azure Active Directory, Azure Remote App, Multi-factor Authentication, Azure Rights Management, Intune, and Microsoft Identity Manager. Microsoft will add more documentation support in the future based on feedback received through UserVoice.

The docs.microsoft.com includes a number of improvements and features, including:

  • Readability
  • Estimated Reading Time
  • Content and Site Navigation
  • Shortened Article Length
  • Responsive Design
  • Community Contributions
  • Feedback Mechanisms
  • Social Sharing
  • Friendly URLs
  • Website theming

For a more in-depth look at each of these features, visit docs.microsoft.com and send your feedback on the new site and available features through Microsoft’s UserVoice.
