Hyperion Training Plan in Place

marking your calendarsOn December 13, 2012, the campus budget officers gathered in Columbia for their regular, monthly meeting. During that time, they conducted a scheduling exercise in which they coordinated their individual, campus training plans for Hyperion-FIN and Hyperion-HCP.

As the fiscal year 2014 budgeting season approaches, it is imperative that the campuses have a robust training plan in place. A total of 28 auditorium and computer lab sessions are planned at all four campuses including, for the pilot group, eight Hyperion-HCP sessions. Approximately, 350 users will receive training in Hyperion throughout January and February. Invitations for these training sessions should begin appearing in your inbox soon!
