Title: UNIX: Compelling Value and Bright Future
Post by: UbuntuGeek on April 27, 2011, 01:53:26 PM
This paper highlights the reasons why CIOs working in different industries continue to invest in Unix operating systems.

 HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to ask the question: Why do users of current RISC/UNIX platforms continue to use UNIX in the face of increasingly robust Linux offerings, often from the same vendors that provide their RISC/UNIX platforms, running on less expensive x86 platforms? Forrester developed and tested the hypothesis that UNIX continues to deliver high value to current and future users who have requirements that place significant weight on the historical strengths of a RISC/UNIX environment, including reliability, scalability, and security.

To test this hypothesis, Forrester conducted in-depth interviews with senior IT operations executives at 15 medium to large companies that are current UNIX users. Forrester found that most are planning on continued UNIX use for at least the next 5 years and probably for even longer for a variety of reasons. Access this report now to learn more.
