De Beers India Private Limited wants to improve the management, mobility, and security for its desktops and notebooks running on Windows® XP SP2. A pilot deployment and a business value case study conducted by IDC showed how upgrading De Beers’ PCs to Windows Vista™ would provide the desired benefits while reducing TCO.

The identified IT savings of U.S.$115 per PC annually in reduced IT support costs and user labor are calculated as follows:

IT labor is projected to decrease by 10 percent or $73 per PC
User labor is expected to decrease by 27 percent or $42 per PC
Based on an estimated IT labor cost for Windows Vista deployment of $13 per PC (assuming DeBeers uses its existing hardware refresh cycle to upgrade to Windows Vista), IDC estimates that De Beers will realize a Return On Investment of 509 percent and a payback period of 4 months.
