Does BPC Fit into yourAnalytics Future?

8AM PT | 11AM ET | 4PM BST

BPC has been a reliable solution for some customers with up to 20 years of service in their organization. For others, the experience with BPC has too often been a struggle to achieve positive value. In either case, it is healthy to reevaluate BPC’s ability to support advancing requirements against a range of options in the EPM (and now: xP&A) solution market.

Major organizations are reevaluating their use of BPC to determine how and, in some cases, IF BPC fits into their future analytics vision. This webinar will discuss under which circumstances BPC is a good fit and where alternatives should be considered…the range of options available to current BPC users to enable a more complete and high-value analytics capability.
