This year, Rego Consulting is hosting the premier learning event for Apptio and TBM professionals on September 11-13, 2022 in historic Nashville, Tennessee. The event, called Rego University, is the best place to connect with other TBM professionals, participate in interactive sessions, learn best practices, and get hands-on training.

Early bird registration rates are available until July 15th.

This year, classes are being led by Rego’s expert TBM guides, who have over 80 years of combined Apptio and TBM experience. Below, we’ve rounded up the top ten TBM and Apptio training courses at Rego University 2022:

1 – Managing Your Technology Finances with Agility (Continuous Planning)

In the age of Agile, typical annual planning processes are antiquated and can damage your organization’s ability to respond quickly to changing conditions. Give your organization the most agility with continuous planning. We will cover the best practices, typical challenges, and real-world examples of the tools and processes needed to achieve financial agility.

2 – Maturing TBM: Apptio Adoption and Engagement Best Practices

Are you struggling with Apptio user engagement and adoption? Do you struggle to get stakeholders to provide data or executives to log in to Apptio? If you’ve spent time, energy, and funding to develop a great TBM program but are not seeing the engagement you want, this session is for you. We will show you how to drive Apptio adoption and improve stakeholder engagement.

3 – Apptio IT Planning Best Practices

Set yourself up for success in IT planning by learning the ins and outs of Apptio’s ITP. We will cover tips and tricks, best practices, and ways to use ITP to push your organization to the next level.

4 – TBM Studio Tips & Tricks

Get insider tips on TBM Studio gathered and distilled from our expert consultants across many years of working as both customers and consultants. These include process, allocation, reporting, and even some end-user tips that can make your journey in TBM smoother.

5 – Why Are My Costs Changing? Analyzing Cost Drivers

Have you ever reviewed costs with your stakeholders and suddenly noticed an unexpected change? If your answer is “yes,” then you are in the right place. This class will teach you all the techniques you need to trace down the cause of the discrepancies in the model. We will cover advanced troubleshooting techniques like Metric view for tracing up/down the model and how to leverage model summary reports.

6 – Apptio Reporting Best Practices and Report Showcase

Reporting is typically the only interaction executives and stakeholders have with Apptio, so reports should be pristine. In this session, we will show you how to improve your Apptio reporting, making it more visually appealing, intuitive, and digestible. We’ll also showcase some custom reports and encourage attendees to bring their own reports to showcase as well.

7 – Elevate the TBMO: Understanding TBM and Positioning its Value Within Your Organization

Realizing the full potential of TBM can be challenging. All-too-often, Apptio becomes a data consolidation and reporting tool instead of a change agent. In this session, we’ll discuss how to elevate your TBMO to become a transformational entity within your organization.

8 – Apptio BI: Best Practices for Using it in Your Organization

Apptio BI (previously self-service reporting) is an intuitive ad-hoc reporting solution for Apptio. Learn how it can be a one-stop-shop for your end-user’s custom data needs, saving TBMAs time and energy. We’ll show you how to set it up and discuss best practices for deploying it to your user base.

9 – Checking Your Apptio Environment’s Health, Optimizing, and Tuning It

Is your Apptio data stale? Is your environment running slow? Do you have outdated customizations? Learn how to conduct an Apptio system review to ensure that your environment is optimized and accurately tracking costs. We’ll discuss trouble signs to look for, performance tuning, and steps to fix common problems.

10 – Best New ApptioOne Features of 2022 – Deep Dive

We’ll review the most important updates and new functionality released for ApptioOne in the past 12 months. We’ll demo key new features you should be taking advantage of and discuss the best practices for implementing them.
