Vista is a distraction, say IT professionals

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%).
However, less than half (47%) of respondents expect their organisation to migrate to Vista in the foreseeable future, and more than a quarter (27%) expect Vista to have no impact on their business within the next 18 months.
