> From: Joe Pluta > > http://www.asna.com/pages/press_release_view.aspx?nID=85 If you read closely, you'll see that ASNA is part of some stupid executive seminars called "AppEvo", which are supposed to somehow explain how ASNA and .NET provide a better ROI (I think it involves special Kool-aid and sensory deprivation tanks). There's one in Detroit in February -- maybe some iSeries folks ought to get together and stage a sit-in <smile>. I'd LOVE to see some idiot from MS answer some real questions on TCO and ROI. "How many servers does it take to replace a P30 iSeries? And how many MCSE engineers to run those servers? What percentage of the day is spent patching those servers and applying upgrades? What's the total licensing cost? How about MTBF? Unexpected downtime per year per server?" Oh, it's about INITIAL cost. Let's see here: "How long do you think it takes to move my application from RPG to .NET? What about activation groups? Service programs? System APIs? Journaling? How about backups - can I use BRMS? Are my printers supported? User profiles? Group profiles?" What fun.
