CDW Tracks Vista, Office 2007 Adoption

Channel monster CDW is back with more numbers for your consumption. This time, the Large Account Reseller is looking at adoption of Vista and Office 2007. The crux of the findings is that Vista -- which almost 30 percent of "IT decision makers" are either using or "evaluating" -- seems to be a good springboard to adoption of Office 2007. While not particularly surprising, that little nugget still seems interesting. From the press release:

"The survey of 753 IT decision makers, released last May, indicated that 29 percent of respondents were currently using or evaluating Windows Vista. Newly released findings of the survey show that 42 percent of those using or evaluating Windows Vista have deployed or plan to deploy the 2007 Microsoft Office system, and that 38 percent said they planned to do so within 12 months of when they took the survey last February."

So there you go. Hopefully, you're one of the partners who's profiting from the uptake (and we won't comment on the speed of the uptake, having said enough already) of these technologies.
