Why a subscription?

EPM customers typically pay tens of thousands or more to service & expand their EPM solutions. Column5 believes that quality education is absolutely critical to EPM success throughout your organization and can readily lower your total cost of ownership. At Column5, we are laser-focused on customer success. It is our opinion that customers of SAP EPM products often only realize a fraction of their potential value under the status quo in the marketplace.

We are very passionate about customer success in EPM. We want to encourage our community of members to pursue the utmost value from investments in EPM and Analytics. We believe the best way to address challenges at every stage of the EPM Journey and inspire users is to make participating in an iterative discussion about these vital topics as accessible and attractive as possible. We believe the results and inspiration we want to cultivate in member organizations are not possible in a single multi-day event. We want to share critical information with members all year round…the subscription is therefore the right vehicle to do so.
