Microsoft is having problems getting enterprises to give up Internet Explorer 6 and Windows XP for the new IE7 and Vista, according to surveys of more then 50,000 corporate users done throughout 2007.
Both IE6 and Windows XP are entrenched and showed little signs of weakening their lock on businesses, said Reedwan Iqbal, a researcher with Forrester Research Inc. “A lot of critical enterprise applications are still not compatible with IE7,” Iqbal said today in explaining one reason why corporations have stayed with the older IE6.
Forrester, which conducted monthly surveys throughout 2007 of more than 50,000 enterprise users, said that only 30% of corporate Internet Explorer users had switched to IE7 by year’s end. “Even with Microsoft spoon feeding users high-priority automatic updates, enterprise apathy is proving extremely difficult to overcome,” said the report, which was published last Thursday.
