Stampede 2002 has radiated moderate optimism within VARs and other attendees, in a sharp contrast with many other user or industry conferences where we have felt a generally somber, anxious, or at least subdued mood.

Baan And SSA GT Merge To Form A Mid-Market Empire With An ''Iron Side'' Part Two: Market Impact On Baan


Baan is now in a much better company, one that is solely dedicated to the enterprise applications business.
