Forrester Research has issued a new study in which it predicts that at least one-third of enterprises will begin to deploy Windows Vista enterprise-wide by mid-2008.
Driving Vista adoption will be an increase in applications certified as Vista-compatible and new PC form factors which are “ready to run Vista smoothly” and at “price points will make compatible machines more affordable than they are today,” the Forrester researchers said in their “How Windows Vista Will Shake Up The State Of The Enterprise Operating System” report, released on November 12.
Forrester acknowledged that a number of businesses are waiting for Vista Service Pack (SP) 1 before starting their Vista deployment rollouts. But according to current schedule, Vista SP1 is set to roll out in the first calendar quarter of next year.
