Recent MIT Sloan research stated that an organization with 10,000 people has, on average, 300 concurrent IT projects at any given time. This is a matter of business priority as much as it is a lack of IT resources. The business wants new IT systems to make it grow faster or reduce costs, two categories where OS upgrades don’t necessarily fit (despite what Microsoft may tell you!). When IT does have that rare spare capacity, the projects that win are generally business solutions.

Unless an OS migration can be a business-as-usual (BAU) activity, it will be generally be deprioritized, and the organization will continue to struggle to stay current. What’s ironic is that many of the business solutions that the organization wants and needs would work better with the new OS, or may even be dependent on it.

Why do large organizations delay in migrating their users to the latest Windows operating system (OS)? According to Sumir Karayi, CEO of 1E, they often hear five major excuses that prevent IT from staying current in terms of the operating system, and many other technologies. This understanding comes from the work 1E has done with more than 1500 organizations over the last 15 years, and offers insight to combat these commonly overheard defenses.
