Are these web agencies going to do your development for you? I suppose they would probably like to. Your director of marketing makes technical decisions about infrastructure? Based on what "some web agencies" tell him? It sounds like you live in a Dilbert strip, or, alternatively, hell. As a partner at a "web agency" myself (whatever that is exactly) I would be happy to tell your boss that he should put down the crack pipe if he thinks it's a good idea to switch from CF to .NET. For what it's worth, it's almost never a good idea to switch from CF to .NET, or vice-versa, if you have any significant investment in application code. Anyone who tells you otherwise is just angling for your money.
