SOLUTION FOCUSED EPM EXPERTS

Who is Skehana?

Employee owned and operated, Skehana was founded by past executive leaders and product consultants. Skehana resources have serviced more than 1000 EPM clients worldwide over the past 20 years. By combining top EPM talent with low overhead/zero sales commissions, Skehana provides these top resources with the best valued rates in the EPM consulting industry.

In a “people” business, it is just as important to match personality and work ethic as it is technical skills. Each Skehana consultant is personally “hand selected” for every client project based on these and many other important aspects such as desire, location, and industry knowledge.

Skehana consultants average more than 15 years of hands-on EPM experience they learned while working directly at Hyperion Solutions, Inc., and/or one of their clients. Most have been in your shoes and understand the importance of client satisfaction with guaranteed success.

Headquartered in Connecticut with offices in California, New York, and Washington DC, Skehana is best suited to service your regional and global EPM implementation needs.

SERVICE OFFERINGS

Skehana’s sole focus is in the implementation and maintenance of Enterprise Performance Management (EPM). Skehana provides project-based, consultative resources depending upon current resource needs. Skehana consultants have over a decade of experience in higher education, financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, public sector, and entertainment industries with clients ranging from F100 to regional divisional offices.

SKEHANA’S NAME

The word “Skehana” comes from a small fishing village in Ireland where it is in the DNA of its people to work hard to earn an honest living, and where neighbors still feel comfortable leaving their doors unlocked. We selected “Skehana” as it best suits our culture of honest hard work where integrity and customer service still matter.
