Subject: Saving our AS/400

        Our U. has bought an ERP package based on Oracle, Sun servers and the like.  As part of the deal, the vendor threw in an Alumni/Foundation product for free and now there is pressure to move to it.  Unfortunately, this product is not nearly as sophisticated as the system we have developed on the AS/400.  We need ammo to convince the powers that be not to migrate to this part of the ERP system.  We need to cite sources and articles by reputable organizations that show the AS/400 is not a dinosaur.  We need to show that the machine is as advanced as any server on the market and  that it's going to be around for a long time.  We simultaneously need to show that the 400 can support advanced languages like Java and C++ AND that RPG is not a dead language.  Can anyone point me to the resources I need to do all of this?
