Response: Forrester reports increase in corporate Vista deployments.

Following reports from Forrester Research that large numbers of companies are deploying Microsoft Vista, Larry Nuttall, Director of file migration experts, Converter Technology, argues that the credit crunch has little impact on enterprise technology refresh cycles.

Nuttall says: "We have always maintained that Vista would take off around 18 months after it came to market and Forrester's report confirms this. Vista, like Office 2007, and other Microsoft products, has so far followed a completely normal adoption cycle. When a new product is released, companies need time to assess the time and cost involved in the upgrade process, and IT Managers typically like to pilot test new technologies before rolling them out across the whole company."

"Converter Technology is currently working on a number of file migration projects for companies within the banking and finance industry" continues Nuttall. "We have seen no evidence of any reticence to upgrade to the latest operating system despite the recent economic downturn. In fact, many of our customers are keener than ever to deploy the latest technologies in order to stay ahead in an increasingly competitive market."
