Well I don't know about Jim, but I find your answer insulting.  So if your
ERP vendor goes belly up your going to walk in to your Presidents office
and tell them I need a few million dollars to change our ERP system that we
just spent the last three years installing.  If that's your only solution
you plan on having on the table then I don't know about your company going
belly up but maybe the IT department should.  As for your reference that if
you doubt the "Viability of the ERP system" my question to you would be,
What ERP system would you not doubt the viability of right now?  Now I
don't know what you do at work but in my world what Jim's doing is called
planning for contingencies and it's a part of the managers job.  You know I
don't seriously think my building is going to go up in flames but guess
what we have a disaster recovery plan anyway.

You may find my remarks to be insulting, but I believe that evolution
the smart & the scenario you describe will get rid of companies operated by
stupid management.

If you are operating an ERP from a company that has gone out of business &
you try to migrate it to another computer platform, you deserve to join the
ERP vendor in a state of out of business.

And in fact if you seriously doubt the viability of SSA today, then you
should be seriously shopping around RIGHT NOW for a vendor that you have
confidence in.
