Global Knowledge reports strong demand for Windows Vista training

Training company Global Knowledge is reporting strong demand for its courses in Microsoft Windows Vista.

The company says many businesses and public sector organisations are evaluating the new operating system before making a decision about when to upgrade and starting to plan their deployments.

Global Knowledge, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner for Learning Solutions (CPLS), is also reporting a high level of enquiries on the availability of courses covering Microsoft Exchange 2007 and Microsoft Office 2007, ahead of the full-scale deployments commencing during 2007.

Jeff Smithies, Microsoft product director for EMEA at Global Knowledge, said: "We've been running a course on implementing and maintaining Vista for several weeks now and seen uptake accelerate as the launch approached.

"We're also seeing strong demand for the new Migrating to Vista course and plenty of interest in Exchange 2007 and Office 2007. We believe this indicates that there will be high levels of uptake of these systems over the next 12 months."

Thomas Lee, Microsoft chief architect at Global Knowledge, said that every organisation that adopts the new versions of Vista, Exchange and Office will benefit by making an early investment in the training of both IT professionals and desktop users.

"Vista and Exchange Server 2007 deliver significant benefits in areas such as security and manageability," said Lee. "But without some formal training, organisations risk not realizing the full benefits and rapid return on investment in these solutions.

"With Office 2007 the interface is significantly different and all users will undoubtedly benefit from expert tuition and become more productive and effective almost immediately as a result."
