EPM Educational Events Including Column5.TV and the Annual EPM Leadership Summit, Dedicated to Advancing EPM Excellence

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Column5 Consulting announced today that it has launched a new website Column5EPMEvents.com to open registration for their EPM Education Series, a series of Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) events that delivers leading edge education in SAP EPM beginning on November 11, 2014. 

Column5 SAP EPM Education Events

Column5 has allocated its most significant investment to date to satisfying the unique needs of the EPM market by launching this series of EPM educational experiences. The series will be delivered  in a virtual environment at Column5.TV three times per year plus one annual, in-person gathering, the EPM Leadership Summit. Throughout all four annual events there is calculated progression of knowledge in the nearly 100 hours of EPM educational sessions specifically designed to advance EPM excellence within the ecosystem.

"We continue to hear from organizations that are lacking the education to extract value from their EPM investments, despite all of the other conferences that boast EPM content," said David Den Boer, CEO of Column5 Consulting.  "This somber truth underscores the criticality of quality information sharing and progressive EPM education for companies who expect and deserve the highest performance and returns from their EPM solutions."

Featuring a total of 45 high quality EPM sessions; 15 sessions delivered over 5 hours per live, virtual event, the Column5 EPM Success Network on Column5.TV annual subscription details the latest technology, product and best practice updates delivered by proven experts and customers in three tracks:  Functional, Technical and Executive.  Each track features nearly 5 hours of sessions, with each live session being worth one CPE credit for participants.  Although attendees won't have time to view all the sessions during the live event, the content is available on-demand throughout the year.

Column5 is very excited to announce the return of their in-person Column5 EPM Leadership Summit, being held February 23-27, 2015 at the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas.  Featuring 47 live, in-person sessions delivered over the course of 2.5 days, the EPM Leadership Summit dives deeply into topics for each of the content tracks: Functional, Technical and Executive.  Attendees can earn one CPE credit per session attended at this event.

Column5's Mastering EPM Workshops provide in-depth, personal and hands-on EPM training.  In addition to three sessions being held the day before the EPM Leadership Summit in Las Vegas, additional workshops are conducted throughout the year at Column5 headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The in-person format, and intimate event space for both the Summit and Mastering EPM Workshops allows attendees to personally interact with instructors, industry and product experts, network with peers and experts from other organizations using SAP EPM and take their EPM knowledge and resource base to a deeper level.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
In his General Session at DevOps Summit, Asaf Yigal, Co-Founder & VP of Product at Logz.io, will explore the value of Kibana 4 for log analysis and will give a real live, hands-on tutorial on how to set up Kibana 4 and get the most out of Apache log files. He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also...
