That and we have had two sister companies who are in the process of making
the implementation.  My process is that they are moving forward, slightly
off schedule, and slightly off budget.  But the CFO and his boss have made
extrapolations to the new cost based on our sister companies.  How they got
there I haven't a clue.  I have found with our CFO I'm not the person to
question the cost estimate.... :-).  Our costs came from a 6 figure study
with Global Services......we'll see which is more accurate.

On what does your CFO bias his opinion? The claims of the SAP consultants?

Trust me I am well aware of the risks involved with this.....we estimated
two years ago that the cost would be $35 million and 18 months.  Now our
CFO claims that we can do it for $8 to $15 and be done in 12.............

:-)

If it wasn't for the SAP experience I think I would get the heck out of
Dodge......

One major factor to help simplify the process and reduce some of the risk
is to keep it on the right platform....so anyone what knows of a $800m or
higher company that is using SAP on the iSeries would be greatly
appreciated.  IBM references aren't worth a nickel at this time......
