IRVINE, CA August 28, 2014 – For Immediate Release
Ramp Consulting, a SAP Enterprise Performance Management consulting company, announced today the launch of a new educational initiative, RAMP Consulting Business Insights, dedicated to informing customers about best business practices for EPM financial solutions. The new program provides guidance for large and mid-sized businesses deploying SAP EPM financial solutions.
“An important part of our role as a leading SAP Enterprise Performance Management consulting company is to evangelize best practices for companies using EPM solutions to optimize their business”, said Victor Fadool, CEO of RAMP Consulting. “Our new initiative, RAMP Consulting Business Insights, explores all the issues that CFOs and senior management wrestle with on a day-to-day basis.”
The educational program will include a host of informative white papers, seminars and one-on-one business analysis from RAMP Consulting. To kick off the initiative, RAMP Consulting has published a new white paper, entitled “Smart Integrated Planning Starts with Smart Information Gathering”, available for free download from their website.
“The wide array of analytical tools found in EPM solutions can open up opportunities for mid-size to large businesses, but the best success with these tools lies in understanding smart data management practices,” added Fadool. “We believe that sharing our own business intelligence about EPM solutions will result in improved budget, planning and forecasting for smart decision making in many companies.”
Every year, thousands of businesses – from mid-sized enterprises to Fortune 100s – struggle to predict their future. In a recent study conducted by CFO Research in collaboration with SAP, not being able to anticipate future outcomes proved to be one of a CFO’s biggest concerns. RAMP Consulting agrees that ever-changing business complexities and compliance requirements magnify the problem, but with millions of dollars being spent on sophisticated financial enterprise software systems around the globe, RAMP Consulting also recognized the need to provide smart planning guidelines to maximize those investments.
The RAMP Consulting Business Insight series will also include exclusive detailed papers for RAMP blog subscribers and informative seminars by invitation from the company.
