IT departments in midsize organizations are expected to improve the quality of services to PC end-users, cut IT support costs, and increase business flexibility. Compared to large enterprises, midsize companies have tighter IT budgets and fewer IT resources. With the release of the Windows Vista operating system at the end of 2006, IT managers faced the decision of when and how to deploy it across their organizations. To help answer these questions, Wipro Technologies interviewed 73 midsize companies that have begun deploying Windows Vista??. Major findings include:
- Depending upon the deployment method chosen, Windows Vista ROI can be very strong--ranging from 81% to 104% for midsize organizations.
- With widespread application availability, the release of Service Pack 1, and more than half of all US companies either running or evaluating it, Windows Vista has entered the mainstream adoption phase. Midsize companies should plan to begin deploying Windows Vista during their next PC refresh cycle.
- Delaying the Windows Vista upgrade process can result in deployment costs that are twice as high asthose organizations using a timely refresh-based upgrade, while foregoing the productivity benefits of Windows Vista. Running an outdated operating system may result in additional risks and costs as software suppliers drop application support, drivers for new hardware become unavailable, and PC vendors no longer ship the prior operating system pre-loaded.
