I had expected a somber mood in light of the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) Bobby Yazdani’s ousting on Friday, on the very eve of the conference. Indeed, how often does a CEO (willingly or not) step down on the eve of an important annual user conference? This issue was briefly

I'm Larry Blitz, editor of TEC’s Vendor Showdown series. With enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems being the information backbone of the organization, we decided to take a closer look at three of the more popular discrete ERP solutions for the mid-market.
