The instructor-led sessions, which will combine theory with guided practice, are designed to accommodate the needs of new as well as long-time Yellowfin users.

“These face-to-face training workshops will assist participants to derive even more value from their Yellowfin investment,” said Yellowfin Director of Professional Services, Sadaka Ehrenblad. “With three levels of training – Exploration [Level 1], Advanced [Level 2] and Expert [Level 3] – these modules will assist any user type from any background to solidify concepts discussed at Think Tank and make even smarter, faster data-based decision-making.”

Ehrenblad said that Think Tank registrants were automatically eligible for a discount on Yellowfin’s standard classroom training rates.

“We would like to extend a discounted rate to any Think Tank registrants looking to attend one or more of Yellowfin’s post-event training modules,” said Ehrenblad. “Available discounts will depend on: The number of people from each organization who register for training and Think Tank; as well as the number of training modules for which they register.”
