Just 10 percent of CIOs have begun the Vista rollout, research shows

CIOs not keen to deploy iPhones either.

Up to 90 percent of CIOs have yet to begin the Vista roll-out, according to research released this week. And CIOs have little interest in deploying the iPhone as a corporate tool either.

An analyst from Sanford Bernstein surveyed 105 CIOs from the United States and Europe about their attitudes towards Vista and the iPhone.

A scant 10 percent of CIOs surveyed said they had started the Vista roll-out, compared to the 30 percent of participants who had claimed to have started the roll-out in last year's survey.

The biggest concerns CIOs had with Vista were over its security and productivity features. Less than 20 percent of respondents felt that Vista would deliver the security and productivity improvements promised by Microsoft.

The news for Apple wasn't too good either, with the vast majority of CIOs uninterested in deploying the iPhone as a corporate tool.

According to their research, just two percent of CIOs plan to actively deploy iPhones to their organisation over the coming year.

But CIOs were more positive about the idea of employees buying iPhones out of their own pockets. 10 percent said they supported iPhones employees bought themselves, and Sanford Bernstein predicts that in 12 months time, that figure will increase to 25 percent.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
