EPM Conversations -- Episode 10, A Conversation With Jodi Hill, Pattern Recognizer and Outlier

9/21/2021
We’re all wired to see patterns We live in patterns: seasonal, political, historical, and even atomic. Many live a life blithely unaware of them, which is to their disadvantage, for understanding those patterns is key to what makes us human, drives culture and society, and informs economics. We happy few in the performance management world figuratively live and die by the patterns in data. If careful observation of clients, customers, and conferences is an accurate guide, we are largely cut...

EPM Conversations -- Episode 9, A Conversation with Matthias Heilos, CEO of Finance Technology Innovations

5/4/2021
Data, data everywhere, and none of it in the right place or in the right format Performance cannot be managed (see what I did there?) without data. And yet data –because it is in the wrong format, because it is in the wrong place, because it is poorly defined, because we don’t have the ability or the resources or the time to transform it into what our systems need – is ever a challenge. Data is, quite simply put, hard. FinTech Innovations aims to alleviate that challenge and make data...

EPM Conversations -- Episode No. 8, A Conversation with Tom Shea, CEO of OneStream Software

4/6/2021
From Enterprise administrator to CEO, from market disruptor to Magic Quadrant visionary We at EPM (or should that be CPM?) Conversations are – unsurprisingly – pleased beyond belief to have OneStream Software CEO Tom Shea as our very special guest. We think you'll be pleased as well. OneStream is in the moment and of the future. How did that happen? Who made that happen? What is its genesis? Where is OneStream right now and where will it be in the future? Why is it such a success? This...

EPM Conversations -- Episode No.7, A Conversation With Kevin Lawrence, Marketing Analytics, Corporate To Guerilla

3/2/2021
Not EPM, not CPM, but analytics of a marketing kind This podcast is dipping its collective and metaphorical toe outside of the warm and cozy confines of performance management with a conversation with a guest whose job, passion, and personal interest is understanding the relationship of human behavior with business through the lens of marketing analytics. Join us, won’t you, on this fascinating conversation with Kevin Lawrence that is most definitely not within the scope of traditional EPM...

EPM Conversations -- Episode No. 6, A Conversation With Mike Nader, EPM's Very Own Data Analytics Polymath

2/4/2021
Hah! EPM doesn’t get a lot of polymaths, does it. Yet Mike is exactly one of those. A polymath is, “a person of great and varied learning” although Mike is too modest to agree with that description. If you but listen to this conversation, you (and he) will see that it is a fair characterization. But wait, there’s more In addition to Yr. Obt. Svt., this conversation also has Natalie Delemar as our guest host and regular John Booth. This varying cast of characters is what I hope is the (or...

EPM Conversations -- Episode 5, A Conversation (no, a rap!) With Chris Turner

1/5/2021
Different? You want different? Music? Humor? Freestyle Rapping? Maybe something related to EPM? Maybe. Actually, yes, quite a bit really. You read that right: EPM Conversations has a number of firsts in this podcast: It’s the obvious move.A note before we get into the content of this conversation: if you are of a timid and retiring nature, easily offended at adult language and commentary, then I fear this isn’t for you. This is absolutely a case of letting one’s work speak for itself....

EPM Conversations — Episode No. 4, a conversation with John Booth

12/7/2020
What could be better than the Three EPM Conversations Cohosts? What whole number is greater than three? Four, totes obvs. And here we are, with Yr. Obt. Svt., Celvin Kattookaran, Tim German, and now John Booth. John and I did the very first EPM-in-the-cloud presentation at Kscope11: EPM 11.1.2.something-or-other running on AWS. John did all of the heavy lifting and I did…something. No matter, he still talks to me as you will gather below if you but listen. John has been a writer in the...

EPM Conversation – A Conversation With Abhi Nerurkar, Co-Founder of EPMware

11/16/2020
One out of three ain’t bad We were lucky enough to land Abhi Nerurkar, one of the three co-founders of EPMware, a software company specializing in Master Data Management (MDM) and Workflow, for our very first vendor conversation. A note: we didn’t speak with Abhi’s partners, Tony Kiratsous and Deven Shah, as we’re simply not set up/not experienced enough to manage a six way conversation. We have to work on that but I hope that Deven and Tony understand/are deeply appreciative of not being...

EPM Conversations — Episode No. 2 Part 1, a conversation with Essbase Lady, Natalie Delemar

10/19/2020
Intro and outro For once your author aka Yr. Obt. Svt. is keeping it short and sweet. Enjoy it, as its brevity may be akin to Halley’s Comet and happen again in 2061. Natalie Delemar, Essbase Lady, Madame President (emerita) of ODTUG, dynamic personality, and friend to all of us in the EPM space (but especially to me), is our guest. There was so much history, so much interest, so much conversation that we simply couldn’t do it all in one episode. Also, one wonders if a two hour podcast...
