VDC Market Stats Report Highlights

VDC's Market Statistics Report was published recently. Here is an interesting chart (one of many) in the report. The data is on scale of 1-5 with 1 being not important and 5 being very important.

What we find of note here is how far down on the list Price/cost is. Tools rank very high as they do in the processor purchasing decision. But the highest rated requirement is Reliability/stability.

Security is way down the list. Amazing with all the emphasis on secure systems. VDC is betting that security becomes a key feature in 2006.
