This year’s theme echos arcplan’s tagline, “It simply works.” Participants will hear more than 20 talks on the latest business intelligence and planning innovations and trends, including mobile BI and big data, from arcplan customers and industry experts.  The conference will open with a unique keynote speech by Paralympics athlete Wojtek Czyz. In his address, “Everything’s Possible,” the winner of several gold medals in Athens and Beijing will inspire attendees with a talk about personal challenges and how to overcome them. Also speaking are Martin Wilcox, Director of Product & Solution Marketing EMEA at Teradata, who will discuss how to “Do More With Your (Big) Data,” as well as representatives from Daimler AG, B|S|H, Hailo, Ineos, the Elster Group, Scout 24 and Deutsche Telekom.

Rounding out the conference will be presentations on the latest updates to our product suite and our roadmap led by arcplan experts.

An exciting addition to this year’s line-up is a presentation by the 2012 arc|ademy BI Challenge winners, who will present their arcplan solutions to the public for the first time.

In parallel to the main arc|planet program, there will also be an exhibition featuring the solutions and products of arcplan partners (and arc|planet sponsors) antares, b.telligent, Braincourt, Ernst & Young, Partake Consulting, SALT Solutions, Selbach Information Systems, Synaxus BI Solutions, TDWI Europe and Teradata.
