Many businesses are reluctant to deploy Windows Vista, a study from the Corporate IT Forum (TIF), has found.
In the survey of 78 TIF members in listed in the FTSE 100 and 250, 62% of IT managers said they had not yet considered Windows Vista. A total of 43% said they had no plans to deploy Vista. Some said they could not see a driver for deploying Vista. Others were concerned that the size and complexity of Vista would mean they would need to undertake an expensive PC upgrade programme if they chose to deploy Vista in their business.
IT managers said they were concerned their existing applications would be incompatible with Vista. One company's biggest issue was NetWare integration, and another said that a fifth of its managed Windows Application portfolio would not be compatible with Vista.
