EPM Conversations -- Episode No. 8, A Conversation with Tom Shea, CEO of OneStream Software

EPM Conversations

From Enterprise administrator to CEO, from market disruptor to Magic Quadrant visionaryWe at EPM (or should that be CPM?) Conversations are – unsurprisingly – pleased beyond belief to have OneStream Software CEO Tom Shea as our very special guest.  We think you'll be pleased as well.OneStream is in the moment and of the future. How did that happen? Who made that happen? What is its genesis? Where is OneStream right now and where will it be in the future? Why is it such a success? This podcast answers all and throws in more than a few surprises.OneStream as a rocket shipCertainly its rise has been meteoric. What has enabled OneStream to evolve so quickly from an industry insurgent to a market visionary? I could opine (those of you who have had the misfortune to cross Yr. Obt. Svt.’s path have long known that I have many opinions, performance management and otherwise, some of which are even correct) on why that is but ultimately that’s just a geek’s take on a force somewhat larger than him.Better instead to listen to the man himself as he takes us all on a journey from CPA to CEO in a frank and forthright manner. You’ve not likely heard a CEO speak like this before – this conversation is essential if you want to understand what makes OneStream tick.Hear the conversation00:00 - 02:00 Introductions02:00 - 15:05 Tom’s Career Path to OneStream15:05 - 19:35 The “One Platform” Concept19:35 - 23:00 What Is OneStream?23:00 - 25:30 New Features for Planning Processes25:30 - 28:45 OneStream Customer Community and Growth28:45 - 33:30 Changing from Being a Bootstrapped Company to a Large Company33:30 - 35:40 Development of a Community35:40 - 40:40 Analytics, Consolidation vs Aggregation and Architecture in OneStream40:40 - 42:25 Working with Public Sector Clients42:25 - 47:30 Roadmap for Machine Learning47:30 - 52:10 Roadmap for Analytics52:10 - 53:20 UpStream, OneStream, and The Fish53:20 - 61:50 Set-Based Languages and OneStream Block Language61:50 - End OutroductionsWe hope you like the episode as much as we do.
