This year and next will see a major boost in the number of companies trying
out Windows Server 2003, especially among those enterprises where MCPs are employed.
More than half of the organizations where Microsoft certified professionals
work have already begun researching and testing Windows 2003 or expect to by
Dec. 31. Yet only a third of those firms expect to deploy the new operating
system before the end of the year. That’s what a recent MCP Magazine survey
of technical professionals concludes.

The same results say that 29 percent of respondents have no specific plans
to research or test Windows 2003 at this time and 42 percent have no plans to
deploy it. Among those who have no Microsoft certification, 45 percent said
their companies have no plans in place for research or testing and 47 percent
said they don’t know when, if ever, deployment would take place.
