Corporate America appears to be eagerly embracing Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system, a stark and dramatic contrast to the reticent approach shown to its Vista predecessor. This study examines the Windows 7 adoption trend, providing data on how many organizations have the technology in place, how many are implementing it, and how many are expanding implementations. To give additional insight, we look at the economic experience of those that have adopted Windows 7: We examine return on investment (ROI) experience in terms of the percentage of organizations that expect positive and break-even ROI within a two-year period. We also balance the potential ROI against the risks, measured in terms of the percentage of organizations that exceed budgets for total cost of ownership (TCO). (14 pp., 8 figs.)
