All,

There have recently been some rumblings at my job about converting Applications to MS Platforms as well as going to outlook. Management is considering bringing MS on site to "evaluate" I want to come up with some killer comparative reasons, of which I know there are many, but I am looking to you, my follow Domino Devotees for help! Perhaps you can share ideas that I might not have thpought of?

It has put our migration to 6 from 5 on hold. I am pushing the TCO and new benefits, but Management doesn't get it. All they see is the expense of upgrading, and they think that MS is "FREE"!

Has anyone:

1. Been through this at their place of employment?
2. Was it successful? If yes, why? If no, why not?

Any general information I can refer to. We are looking at possibly attending a Briefing with MS in the future, so what "questions" should I ask them, to compare themselves to Notes/Domino, (email, Admin, Development, etc.?)

Thanks in advance to all who can help!

-Steve-
