My question is why does your boss think InDesign will answer those
needs? That is, what features does he think InDesign has that would
serve database publishing.

I'm not saying it won't, because I really don't know, but I'm curious.
I've used both, but I've not done "database publishing" with either.

And I underscore Barry's comments. Conversion to InDesign from Frame
will not be easy.
