eWeek: What's been the biggest benefit to PeopleSoft from implementing the concept of the real-time enterprise within your own company?
Conway: The short answer is $157 million. We have spent in the first nine months of this year $157 million less than we spent last year without ever laying off a single person. We moved our own company online, and costs just came flooding out. For a $2 billion company to save $157 million in the first nine months of the year without having to lay off is a huge validation of the concept.
Without ever laying off a single person? Liar, liar pants on fire!
