SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Column5 APJ, in collaboration with Column5 EMEA and in partnership with SAP Philippines, will be piloting an EPM knowledge event in Bonifacio Global City in the Philippines. This heralds the re-establishment of Column5's regional presence in Southeast Asia as the EPM thought-leader worldwide and as an industry partner Asian multinational enterprises can turn to for their EPM requirements.
Column5 CEO David Den Boer expressed his desire for Column5 to be global in every sense. "We have offices in the United States, the UK, and the Philippines, but most of our events have centered on American companies. We want to bring this valuable content to the APJ region. We have a highly skilled team in Manila, and there are many businesses in Southeast Asia who would benefit from SAP EPM and our services. This event will hopefully be a great introduction for them to SAP EPM and Column5."
The knowledge event will be held on March 25, 2015, in the SAP Philippines Headquarters. The agenda features six hours of rich content, including case studies on on how Filipino Column5 clients are successfully exploiting SAP EPM.
Philips Manalaysay, Managing Director of Column5 APJ, is excited about the opportunity for Enterprise Performance Management networking in the Philippines. He said, "This knowledge event begins the introduction of another pioneering Column5 initiative for the Asia Pacific Region. Column5 has already established itself in North America, and even Europe. Now it is time to show Asia Pacific businesses how we can help them. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with SAP and share EPM knowledge."
Column5 EMEA's Managing Director and Chairman of EPM International, David Jones, will be leading the roster of resource speakers that will be showcasing business-critical knowledge on hot topics such as "How Enterprise Performance Management is Changing the World of Finance Forever" and "20 Years of the Virtual Close? Why Speed of Reporting Matters and how SAP EPM is Delivering Real Time Reporting."
Jones stated, "It is great to work with the Philippine Column5 team. Effective EPM is truly a global need for corporate organizations, and this is a great opportunity to demonstrate our global reach and EPM's global impact. We hope to have many companies attend, customers and prospects."
Column5 launched their EPM Education Series in 2014, featuring online events, and an in-person Summit and Workshops in Las Vegas, NV. The APJ event is the first in kicking off a series of international events, with an EMEA EPM Leadership Summit and Mastering EPM Workshops scheduled for London in June.
