I currently have a situation where a dashboard product produced with flex is, for
some reason, is competing against the idea of Xcelsius as a replacement.
Basically the application that we currently have is running on CF/Flex and
contains a few basic charting elements and ADGs with LDAP security, tree control

lacking in the functionality department from some of the implementations that I

My question is simply, should the client be persuaded against the Xcelsius
solution? If so, why? Keep in mind that I am a complete noob when it comes to
Xcelsius. Also keep in mind that the client really doesn't care that their field
operatives have a working application that they currently love.
Thanks in advance for any information or links to information that you can
