This year a large majority of Systems Software companies have been reporting dramatic increases in demand for their products. Standard & Poor's has cited an IT infrastructure upgrade cycle as one of its key drivers as companies upgrade their computers as well as the operating system to Microsoft Windows 7 from prior versions. Companies stopped IT investments in 2009 and the pent-up demand is paying off nicely.
