re: Hyper-Inflated Tech Stats Grow 217% Crazier
My favorite is the ROI projections when building a business case for an ERP implementation. Our company just had one very recently to justify putting in Dynamics AX in a business unit running on Access 2000 databases and a software system from 1990's still using Foxpro database which has been long out of support. You'd think that would be justification enough but, no, they predicted they would save $1 million in first year from inventory savings. And this in a company that makes superconductor wire to order for customers, they don't have any stock inventory. And even better, AX will save them $300K every year after! You gotta love it.
