This blog article was written by Jim Gonzalez of EDI Support LLC, an EDI Alliance partner.  I am constantly looking for ways to keep up with everything that is going on with the various ERP software packages out there. Although I specialize in Sage products, I like to share information with clients and peers on all things ERP that I happen to come across. One of the easiest ways to do this is through Twitter feeds. They are quick blurbs that I can choose to read or ignore, and most contain links to more detailed articles. As a society there is such a demand to stay informed in real-time and Twitter is by far the best tool for that.  You will hear from consultants, VARs and actual users that work with these ERP solutions on a daily basis.  Here are the top 5 Twitter feeds (not in any particular order) that I follow to stay abreast of ERP news and information...enjoy!
