REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM), today announced that the company, its partners, and selected customers are collaborating for a multi-city educational tour this Fall in North America. The full-day program offers thought-provoking views on the evolution of the finance function, real-world customer examples and partner perspectives on achieving EPM success, and networking with other senior finance and IT professionals.

Finance is under increasing pressure to help grow the business, contain costs, and increase profits even amidst an uncertain and dynamic economic and regulatory environment. The changing role of Finance and the evolution of technology are opening up a world of possibilities to improve speed, accountability, and insight through enterprise performance management (EPM) applications.

The roadshow is a free, information-packed tour that will stop in a number of cities across the USA, delivering best practices and strategies to enable Finance and IT professionals to streamline and modernize the processes, escape their legacy systems environment, and chart their course to the Cloud. Host Analytics customers will be in every city to share their perspectives and answer questions about everything from business evolution to political considerations to best practices and lessons learned from deploying or upgrading EPM applications. In addition, executives from Host Analytics including VP of Services Ron Baden, VP of Sales Gary Hanna, CEO Dave Kellogg, and CMO Lance Walter as well as partners including Accenture, MorganFranklin, and others, will be discussing the latest trends and strategies around enterprise performance management and the cloud.

"It's clear that Finance is moving to the cloud, and all of the current industry research and surveys show that, but many organizations don't know how to take the first step," said Lance Walter, CMO at Host Analytics. "With this roadshow, we're bringing IT and finance leaders together with our customers, partners, and our team to explore and understand opportunities, challenges, and strategies for long-term EPM success in the Cloud."
