Users Flock to Exchange 2010 Migration?

Exchange 2010 is so great that nearly half of enterprises will migrate to it in the next year and a half? Who says so?  A Microsoft messaging partner, of course. It's not a Microsoft partner per se, but a report from Osterman Research which was paid for by Azaleos, a Microsoft e-mail services company.

While 44 percent of shops plan the move, the remainder claim budget pressures are holding them back.

The fact that Azaleos paid for the research does not negate the findings. A good research company won't risk its reputation doing shoddy work, nor would Microsoft risk the black eye.

My bigger concern with researchers is not the numbers, but that sometimes their opinions are informed by whomever they are working for. 

Exchange 2010 is about six months old, and many shops are waiting for the first Service Pack later this year.

Are you moving to Exchange 2010? Why or why not? Or do you use another vendor? Which one and why? E-mail your answers to [email protected].
