The moral of the story is...The right architecture and $1,000 one-time setup can get you $100,000 (in one month)

This is one of my favorite e-business stories...

So, a 2-man IT department at a medical supply distributor wanted to create a B2B Web site to give their hospitals and clinic customers a more convenient way to place orders...and they wanted to build it in Java so they weren't tied to any one platform or vendor. Only they didn't know Java...

But, using m-power, they created a Java-based B2B e-comerce site, running on Linux and served from a PC--and ALSO used m-Power to begin teaching themselves Java as they built it.

The beta-test (launched to just a handful of customers) took in a whopping and unexpected $100,000 in one month of online sales...even though the set up cost was less than $1000. Talk about ROI.

This was possible because of n-tier architecture, which allowed this company to run part of their Java apps on Linux from a PC, while accessing live data from their iSeries.
