Making Chaos Comprehensible with BI


One of our blog authors, Dwight deVera – arcplan’s Senior VP of Solutions Delivery – was interviewed recently by Forbes. This week, the feature piece was published and I thought I’d share it with our readers.

 arcplan Makes Chaos Comprehensible
With its promise to deliver order – or at least orderly reports – from the chaos of heterogeneous systems, and provide results including live data updates to mobile devices, arcplan has opportunity for continued growth. 

The article highlights arcplan’s flexibility and independence, which allow us to consolidate Excel spreadsheets and dispersed data into reports, scorecards, and dashboards that simply work on any device. It also comments on some of the new features in arcplan 7.5, like drag-and-drop from arcplan to Excel, Live Screenshot widgets, and more.

Dwight also shares his opinions on the popularity of Excel, the iPad as an executive tool, and how he expects Microsoft’s Surface tablet to perform.
