Note: Our Planning Bootcamp course is designed for both PBCS and On-Premises students. While some say that virtually no training is required for PBCS, it is a very powerful tool, and to use it to it’s full potential requires formal training.

*There are two distinct paths administrators may take for Planning training. Both options work well, which path you choose may be dictated by your needs or your schedule. Contact us to help you determine which is best for you:
Administrator Option 1 – This path provides students with the necessary skills to begin working with Planning after completing the 5-day Planning Bootcamp class – it’s 2 days of Essbase fundamentals followed by 3 days of Planning administration. Administrators should follow up with the Advanced Essbase class a couple months later to fully round out their skills, but this path gives allows students to get a quick start to Planning after only 5 days of training.
Administrator Option 2 – This path provides students with the full Essbase skills necessary to develop applications in native Essbase as well as in Planning. After taking the Essbase bootcamp, or with similar experience, students need only the last 3-days of our Planning Bootcamp course.
