The internet can be a very overwhelming place…especially when searching for very specific information. Some may say its like trying to find a needle in a needle stack (I bet you didn’t see that coming 😉 ). Granted we have things like Google, Yahoo, Bing and AskJeeves (anyone still using our old friend Jeeves?), but that doesn’t always make life easier, in fact in can make for information overload.
I recently experienced this data inundation first hand. I was looking for demo videos of Business Planning and Consolidations version 10.0 on YouTube. The search bar returned about 14,500 results, of which only a handful were relevant! I spent a few hours combing the results and consolidating them for future use.
The list contains ONLY BPC 10.0 content and has things like “a day in the life demo with BPC 10,” to using an IFRS starter kit, and even the new EPM OnDemand applications.
Oh and what good is a demo video without hearing from the customer? I also scoured YouTube for BPC specific customer testimonial videos, you’ll find those below as well!
