On moodle.org, there is an informative thread debating the pros and cons of implementing Moodle over a commercial solution (Blackboard the example most discussed since most of the forum members are in higher ed).
Many of these arguments are the same ones heard about any open source solution vs. corporate. It also highlights some of the misconceptions about Moodle and open source software in general.
I'll be studying this as I prep for the big meeting with the senior managers.
