Column5 Announces Agenda for 2017 EMEA EPM Leadership Summit

LONDON, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Column5 Consulting has released the agenda for the EMEA EPM Leadership Summit 2017, taking place at the Royal Over-Seas League in London from June 19-20. The upcoming event marks the fourth year that Column5 has hosted this unparalleled event for EMEA-based users of SAP's Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) software. It is the only event in the EMEA region dedicated to SAP BusinessObjects Planning & Consolidation (BPC) and SAP BusinessObjects Financial Consolidation (BFC) education.

They also announced that this year the event will be run in conjunction with EPM International, who will bring case studies and subject matter expertise to the event and extend further its European credentials.

"It's extremely important for Column5 and our EPM International partners to fill the gap in SAP EPM education and knowledge sharing in the EMEA region," says David Jones, Managing Director for Column5 EMEA. "To make the most out of the SAP EPM tools including SAP BPC and SAP BFC, it's important for users to be educated on the products and their features and all the associated value added offerings from SAP such as BusinessObjects Cloud, SAP Disclosure Management, SAP Lumira and SAP Predictive Analytics. Our unique, London-based event has grown significantly over the past four years and we're excited to make 2017 the best EMEA Summit yet and to welcome our EPM International partners and their customers!"

This year's event features a comprehensive knowledge sharing agenda, including programming for three different tracks of SAP users: executive, technical and functional. Hands-on breakout sessions for each track will feature topics like SAP BusinessObjects Cloud, SAP BFC Roadmap and Enhanced Implementation Techniques, SAP BPC Advanced Consolidation Topics and Troubleshooting and Performance Logging in SAP BPC and SAP BFC.

All delegates will convene for an impressive array of SAP EPM customer case study presentations, including companies like British American Tobacco Plc, DFDS A/S, New Balance Athletics Inc, O2 (Telefónica UK Limited) and SRG SSR (Swiss Broadcasting Corporation). Additionally, the conference will feature numerous sessions presented by SAP leadership to help attendees understand how to maximize their use of their software and to understand the exciting roadmap for SAP EPM solutions. These sessions include "Transforming Finance for the Digital Age with SAP S/4HANA Finance" and "Extending the value of BPC and SAP BFC with SAP BusinessObjects Cloud."

As always with Column5's EPM Summit events, learning will not end with the conclusion of the EMEA Summit. All Summit attendees will receive access to EPM Summit Online which hosts quarterly virtual conferences on SAP EPM and features over 100 hours of existing premium SAP EPM sessions available on-demand.
