Hi,

       I'm looking for some authentic/reputable case studies that detail the benefits(performance in particular) of migrating from MyIsam to InnoDb.  

 Nice if you could point to any that is about MYsql version 5.5 which has InnoDb as default storage engine.

myisam used to be faster, but I don't think that's true anymore. Also innodb can help you enforce referential integrity which is enormously valuable.
