Microsoft: IT chiefs are not ready

Daniel Thomas
Almost half of IT managers are not ready for the changes in Microsoft's licensing regime that come into force next month, according to the Computer Weekly/Harvey Nash Big Question poll.

Microsoft is changing the way it licenses its software on 1 October, scrapping programmes which enable users to upgrade software at a discount. Taking out a new licence after 1 October will cost more than twice as much as a Version Upgrade, one of the current options.

Of the IT managers questioned, 44% said their organisations are not prepared for the changes.
