Charlie,

I am in the process of converting to 9.0. I started before the 9.1 was
supported by the migration programs. I hope to go live in a few weeks. From
what I could tell 9.1 was primarily a ION stepping stone, with a huge
prerequisite related to currencies.

I can't talk to the KBC issue as we don't have it, so it was not in my
research.

I like the Power architecture, but as always, I underestimated what it
would take to convert to get everything over to the new box.

The power needed to run all the new services should drive you to a new box,
not to mention user needs. I was very happy with the price of the new box
- I think you and I have the same source for hardware.

Despite all the uncertainty I face regarding the future of MAPICS at my
facility, I pushed hard for 9 and would not settle for 7.8 that a sister
plant went to. I suggest you do the same, push for the latest, stabel
release!

Best of luck...james

To all

I have a simple question that I think does not have a simple answer. We
are a small it department of 2, we need to upgrade our current release
of MAPICS, the question is which release should we go to? We have a
large investment in KBC that we do not want to lose at this time. we
are currently at release 6. Does anyone have any suggestions on which
release we should go to? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
