Windows 8 is unlikely to benefit from enterprise market in short term

Windows 8 logoAlthough Microsoft is confident about its recently released Windows 8 upgrade plans to help trigger new PC replacement in the enterprise market, sources from notebook players are concerned that the plan may not achieve results as good as Microsoft expects since most enterprise users are just starting to switch from Windows XP to Windows 7.

Due to the global economic turmoil, most small-to-medium size enterprises are mainly focusing on saving costs and reducing extra IT expenses, and with many enterprises just starting to transit from Windows XP to Windows 7, the enterprises are not paying a lot of attention to the changes that Windows 8 has brought, the sources claimed.

The sources also pointed out that PC replacement for Windows 8 is unlikely to occur within the next year, according to their own surveys of enterprise clients.

Since transitioning to a new operating system is a big project for enterprises with compatibility issues needing to be resolved, enterprises are generally taking a cautious attitude.

Meanwhile, since Microsoft is expected to work on resolving many bugs in Windows 8 within the next half year, most enterprises are unwilling to take risks and adopt an unfinished product.
