To deliver a rewarding, effective and practical learning experience from a real-world implementation perspective. To empower students with the skills necessary to fully leverage their investment in the technology.

Our Specialty
  • Oracle Hyperion EPM courses written by consultants, with real-world examples and tips and tricks.

  • Unbiased 3rd party point of view - we teach you what really works, and how to work around what doesn't.

  • Very hands-on, exercise-driven courses.

Who We Are
Marian Erikson​
Managing Director

Marian joined Hyperion in 1997 as a Project Manager and then a Regional Consulting Services Director, overseeing hundreds of Hyperion implementations. When 123OLAP Training was formed in 2004, Marian joined as a Partner and Client Services Manager, and in 2017 was instrumental in developing the Keyteach North American Reseller arrangement, bringing Keyteach On Demand classes to 123OLAP customers. 123OLAP wound down and Marian created 123EPM to continue providing customers with the courses and services they grew to expect and appreciate. The creation of 123EPM also provided the opportunity to update the branding and to focus on the full Oracle EPM suite of products, as well as highlight our self-paced On Demand training, which is increasingly sought after.
