Submission + - Windows 8 in the enterprise? Not next year, says Gartner (computerworld.com)

dcblogs writes: Gartner Research Director Peter Sondergaard says that "however good the prospects look for Windows 8 in the consumer market or for tablets, there are no compelling business imperatives to drive legacy devices in business toward Windows 8. Therefore, 90% of enterprises will bypass broadscale deployment of Windows 8 through at least 2014.” What Gartner analysts expect to see are more selective rollouts of Windows 8. The emergence of tablets and smartphones as the primary tools for people in some fields, such as sales, means the days of massive, enterprisewide upgrades of a single standard platform are over in many companies.
