I could not tell you how often i have gone into a client where they told me something like: "Put a patch on the SAS programs, because IT will soon be replacing SAS with <insert flavor of the month>".  Six months later i would be back for more patching, becuase they never could find a software that could out perform SAS.

Very topical post. In my experience many IT managers can't see beyond the up-front software cost to rationally compare the functionality of the software tools they are considering.
