80% of Organizations Plan to Upgrade to Windows 7

Post by WCCobra » April 22nd, 2010, 9:27 pm

While Microsoft has yet to provide any statistics related to the adoption of Windows 7 by enterprise customers, one company dealing with automated application compatibility testing and remediation, indicates that uptake is strong. According to ChangeBASE, makers of AOK, no less than 80% of its customers plan to upgrade to the latest iteration of the Windows client in the first year after the OS was released. At the same time, more than half of organizations looking to migrate to Windows 7, indicate that they will embrace the 64-bit (x64) flavor of the operating system, revealed ChangeBASE’s Greg Lambert.

It is probably inevitable that the upgrade is necessary in order to keep up with the latest products which, increasingly, will not run on XP. We already see MS providing product that will not be able to be used on XP because to do so would limit their ability to take advantage of the advances made by 7.
