When to introduce XI?


Hi folks,

I have the following scenario in our company; We want to consolidate our SAP landscape of 10 R/3 Systems across the organization into 5 systems. Currently we have a LOT of point-to-point interfaces between these systems, they vary from traditional ALE to RFC custom made interfaces.

We have heard of the "wonders" of NetWeaver and want to introduce XI in this landscape. However, the following question have arisen:

<b>When to introduce XI, Before or After consolidation of the SAP landscape?</b> <b>And what are the specific arguments of doing this before or after...</b>

I'm not too much involved into the functional aspects of XI so I can only rely on what our SAP friends have explained us about their marvelous product. That's why I would like to hear some of your thoughts whether it makes sense to introduce XI before we consolidate the systems or right after the complete migration of the landscape has been done.

I appreciate any comments/feedbacks, Thanks.
