Langenfeld, Germany. November 30, 2008 – arcplan, an international provider of Enterprise Performance Management solutions, today expressed great satisfaction at the excellent quality of presentations and the high level of attendance at arcplanet, its global user conference held in early November in Cologne, Germany. The number of 200 delegates provided the ideal backdrop to arcplan’s 15th anniversary, which the company and its customers and partners celebrated at arcplanet. Participants also enjoyed the networking opportunities as well as the evening event held in the “bauwerk köln,” one of Germany’s most futuristic and original venues near the Rhine river.

Well-attended presentations
Support was excellent for the many customer presentations, including those by specialty chemicals group Evonik, pharmaceuticals company Bayer, and the German power utility RWE. Delegates also participated in several arcplan product presentations. Along with a wealth of information about arcplan’s product roadmap, users learned about the upcoming new version of arcplan’s flagship product, arcplan Enterprise 6. In addition, Dr. Carsten Bange of the BARC Institute presented a preview of the results of the new version of the BI Survey, Version 8, which will be published in early 2009.
