TWENTY PER CENT OF CORPS TO BUY NCS?

By CBR Staff Writer

Consultancy Yankee Group claims it foresees aggressive NC (network computers) takeup over the next two years, a claim based on a survey of mid-level IT execs at 37 of the Forbes 100 corporations (which is the same kind of companies as rival Fortune magazine’s list). Nearly half (45%) say they plan to buy an NC – defined in this study as a computer attached to a network and capable of running Java applets without permanent storage – within that time frame. A further 20% say they plan to buy NCs right away. A majority (58%) are also said to be already piloting or evaluating an NC program within their organizations; and 87% have begun developing Intranet applications. Reasons given for this enthusiasm: single point of control; the promise of unifying software central storage; low initial price; and total cost of ownership.
