There's nothing wrong with off-the-cuff guesses and if I had to put a dollar figure on your savings, it would be something like this:

  • a month is 4 weeks
  • a week is 40 hours
  • assume one engineer
  • assume $100 labor rate
  • cost for six months - 96,000 (6*4*40*1*100)
  • cost for one week - 4,000 (40*1*100)
  • savings - 92,000 (96,000 - 4,000)

To me, these are the types of numbers you take to management not only to show the ROI on perl (and maybe convince them to send a bit of that savings to the Perl Foundation) but more importantly to show the ROI on you (and maybe convince them to spend a bit of that savings on you).
