South East Water chief informational officer (CIO) Marcus Darbyshire told ZDNet.com.au that his company had been piloting Windows 7 for some time to see whether it would be a good fit for the organisation.

The pilot went well, according to Darbyshire, who said that the company just had to iron-out some bugs to making its accounting software work with the operating system. Around 90 per cent of applications the company currently used worked with Windows 7.

The roll-out would start in the fourth quarter of the year, Darbyshire said.

South East Water is one of three water retailers operating in Melbourne.
