I've just finished packaging (to send to Adobe) the Scorpio surveys from Ben's presentation in Nashville and thought I'd share some information regarding the planned adoption of Scorpio. There were over 50 attendees at our event but only 48 folks submitted the survey. Of the 48 only 18 answered the question of when they (or their organization) planned to purchase Scorpio. These 18 individuals represent 15 unique companies in the Nashville or surrounding area.
In order to more easily display and group the answers I've made some assumptions from the responses. If someone answered 6-12 months I'm assuming they'll purchase Scorpio in 6. Likewise, if someone answered 3-6 months I'm assuming they'll adopt in 3. Finally, two individuals indicated they were simply a "current user." I don't know if this means they are using ColdFusion 7 currently or they are in the Scorpio beta - so I'm listing their answers as "current user."
(2) Current user
(7) Immediate; as soon as Scorpio is released
(2) 3 months
(3) 6 months
(3) 1 year
(1) 2 years
Throwing out the ambiguity of the 2 current users, 75% of the respondents plan to adopt Scorpio within the next 6 months. Considering the product has not been released (it's planned for "mid 2007" quoting Ben Forta) that's a pretty awesome statistic. Eat your heart out Computer World.
