SAP BPC Training In the Digital Age

Posted by Adam Hess on Mon, Feb 12, 2018 @ 12:02 PM

It’s obvious.  We are constantly bombarded with alerts, texts, emails, and ads every single day.  In fact, you probably received an e-mail or two as you read that last sentence.  We have grown used to accessing information whenever and wherever we need to – from the moment we wake up and start scrolling through new emails and checking the weather while brushing our teeth to reading the latest headlines while standing in line at Starbucks (and then quickly refreshing our Instagram feed to see how many new likes we got on our latest post.)  We are all used to interacting with and consuming information in a shorter timeframe. Believe it or not, the same is true for how we want to learn.  Whether that’s Googling how to cook a hard-boiled egg, or watching a quick YouTube on publishing a set of books in BPC – we want to learn it, and we want to learn it NOW!
