Research Calls Vista 'Distraction'

Survey says, almost half of IT professionals feel that migrating to Microsoft Vista constitutes a distraction from more important issues

LONDON -- Almost half of IT professionals feel that migrating to Microsoft Vista constitutes a distraction from more important issues (49%), a survey reveals today. Conducted by online research specialists emedia, the survey also shows that the overwhelming expectation of Vista is that it will improve security and compliance, cited by 82% of respondents.

Just over half (54%) of respondents suspect that application incompatibility will cause pain to those migrating to Microsoft's latest operating system, while nearly two-thirds (63%) - perhaps predictably - cite cost as a pressure point. In areas other than security, respondents expect Vista to bring improvements to desktop infrastructure optimisation (49%), finding and using information (42%) and enabling a mobile workforce (30%).
