SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of its successful North American Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Leadership Summit, Column5 Consulting is pleased to announce a continued partnership with Darwin EPM for the remaining events in their global EPM Leadership Summit series. The 2018 North American EPM Leadership Summit, which took place from March 12-15, 2018 in Las Vegas, gave attendees the opportunity to experience Darwin EPM software, an integrated set of modules built to leverage and enhance the popular EPM technical platform, Business Planning and Consolidation (BPC), many for the first time. Darwin delivers best practice, agile EPM through quality-assured functionality, optimized design patterns and a world-class user experience. This experience will again take place at the 2018 EMEA EPM Leadership Summit in London, taking place May 14-16.
The EPM Leadership Summit is extremely grateful for Darwin's support of the EPM Leadership Summit series, which now features a dedicated track for existing and potential Darwin users. Through the company's sponsorship of the 2018 EPM Leadership Summit, Darwin gained access to the world's largest gathering of SAP EPM users, including BPC and SAC, and will do so again in London at the EMEA Summit.
"Darwin EPM is an industry-leading enhancement to EPM, so their sponsorship of the EPM Leadership Summit series is a natural fit," comments Steve Sussman, Vice President of Sales at Column5. "As EPM technology advances, we're excited to give BPC users exposure to the industry's future through Darwin-focused interactive sessions and demonstrations."
Available sessions, led by Darwin's team of EPM experts, at the North American EPM Leadership Summit included:
What is Darwin EPM?
Darwin EPM Module Overview: HCM
Darwin EPM Module Overview: CapEx & PPM
High Performance Calculations with DarCE
Darwin EPM Module Overview: Revenue Planning

In addition to these sessions, users had the opportunity to demo the Darwin software one-on-one with Darwin team members throughout the conference. Many existing Darwin customers attended the EPM Leadership Summit, which allowed participants to network and share stories about their success with the product.
"Teaming up with other Darwin EPM users to share our experiences with the product at the EPM Leadership Summit was an invaluable opportunity for Telefónica," says Benet Gillespie, Finance Manager at O2 UK (a Telefónica Company). "I enjoyed hearing about Darwin's new innovations and learning how we might apply them to our system. We can't wait to learn more at the upcoming EMEA EPM Leadership Summit in London!"
