arc|planet 2012 Germany: Event Highlights

by

It’s conference season at arcplan! Though we hold smaller arc|planet events in other countries, like Korea and the upcoming BeNeLux conference, the big kahuna is our annual German users conference, held last week at the Park Inn in Kaarst, Germany. Around 200 attendees including customers, prospects and partners showed up for the two-day event – a mix of more than 20 presentations from business intelligence experts and arcplan customers, break-outs, networking and of course, a little fun.

We must thank our ten arc|planet 2012 partner sponsors – and most especially Ernst & Young as our main event sponsor – for working with us to enable this great conference!

Keynotes and Featured Presentations

Wojtek Czyz kicked things off with a keynote called “Everything’s Possible.” Mr. Czyz lost his lower left leg in 2001 when he was an aspiring soccer player and turned that setback into Paralympics Gold and Silver medals in Athens, Beijing, and London. He gave us insight into his life and success, inspiring us all to have confidence and believe that a combination of willpower and determination can make anything work.

Our own CEO Roland Hölscher delivered a keynote on the theme of the conference, “It simply works,” a message we saw fit to be our company tagline and one that describes our drive for simplicity in the arcplan platform. Mr. Hölscher also provided a brief preview of our next major release (code named “Xenon”), which maintains the concept of simplicity yet provides an even more improved user experience across multiple applications, including mobile devices.
