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 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.

There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
