Karen Yamamoto, Decision Researchâs Vice President of Product Development, commented, âOur inaugural event was such a great success in 2005 that we knew we had to continue to take advantage of the opportunity to bring so many of our clients together to share their real-world perspectives. The networking and camaraderie is a great benefit to our clients, but also of tremendous value to the Decision Research team to gain a perspective from those using our products day-in and day-out. This venue has proven to be a great opportunity for all involved to enjoy substantive dialogue among DRC users and staffâ
âI am pleased to once again join DRC and their clients at this yearâs conference. It is a great opportunity for attendees to learn more about trends shaping the industry, while user conferences are also an excellent venue for clients and vendors to share--and develop--best practices to help users derive maximum value from their solutions. User conferences are also customers' best opportunity to provide vendors with valuable input for their product direction,â noted conference speaker and industry analyst Chad Hersh of Celent.
