3D vs 2D information

First off let me say that currently we use Autocad and Solidworks. I see the need for both of them depending on what you are doing. Solidworks is great for mechanical design, but often times  we have to do an antenna layout for the field that simply needs to be done in Autocad. There are other things too like schematics/interconnects (not related to board layout). We have a new VP that is determined to get rid of Autocad and he says that  we don't do everything in Solidworks either because we don't want to or because we don't know how. I don't really know how to tell him that both programs have their qualities of what they can or cannot do.  He wants a one solution do-it-all program. I was wondering if anybody knows of a website that can explain in detail the benefits of using the two different types of programs? They are looking for "unbiased" information because we are obviously so biased towards change.
