Enhance SAP BPC and EPM User Success with e-Learning

August 12 - 12:00 UK, 4 am US PST, 7 pm US EST
What’s your biggest challenge in making sure SAP BPC is implemented effectively by your end users? Why don’t your BPC users remember how to exploit your solution fully? Do you struggle to educate new staff quickly and easily on BPC wherever they are in the world? There is no doubt that successful SAP BPC implementations are built on effective change management supported by quality training. Most organisations focus effort during their implementation project on class room training for end users and administrators. But, post go-live they struggle to sustain learning and knowledge acquisition and this holds back BPC benefits realisation. We have a unique answer to this all too common problem, already used by many BPC users globally and not even available from SAP themselves: Column5 e-Learning from the EPM Academy. Join us for this 30 minute webcast to learn more about how to leverage learning to sustain knowledge and improve exploitation of your SAP BPC investment. See what other end users experience in the EPM Academy and why it makes BPC knowledge stick!
