arcplan and PARIS Technologies Team Up to Offer Enhanced, User-Friendly Front-End to Business Intelligence

Berwyn, PA / Doylestown, PA – August 4, 2011 – arcplan and PARIS Technologies International, both global Business Intelligence (BI) software innovators, today announce the latest version of their bundled offering of arcplan Enterprise as the front-end to PowerOLAP, a leading multidimensional database server solution. This BI software combination empowers users to leverage the strengths of each tool to create powerful reporting, analytic, and planning applications that provide real-time answers to questions about business performance.

PARIS Technologies' PowerOLAP Version 11 is a multidimensional analysis engine that allows for complex calculations, trend forecasting, and data modeling. It can work with a variety of front ends, including Microsoft Excel, which makes it easy for users to report on and manipulate data, and even model "what if" planning scenarios. Using PowerOLAP with another front-end — specifically, arcplan Enterprise — enhances the power of this engine to provide dynamic charts, interactive dashboards, and mobile BI applications.

arcplan Enterprise 7 is the new version of arcplan's flexible, user-friendly business intelligence reporting and analytics platform. More than 3,000 organizations worldwide use arcplan Enterprise to rapidly create custom BI applications like reports, dashboards, ad-hoc analyses, and mobile apps that feature integrated server-based user management, in-memory processing, the ability to connect natively to more than 20 data sources, and advanced data visualization capabilities.

arcplan and PARIS Technologies have joined forces with their flagship products to offer users this powerful, affordable combination that features a user-friendly front-end via Excel or the Web. The arcplan Enterprise + PowerOLAP bundle allows executives and business users to take advantage of Web 2.0 technologies like interactive dashboards and mobile BI apps so they can view information and take action anytime, anywhere.

"Power OLAP has turned out to be a great engine for GPX Software's new SMB business intelligence product, Xambrosius. We chose arcplan for our Turbo Tax-like user interface because it easily integrated to PowerOLAP and provided our engineers with a rapid deployment environment. Both of these features were critical to the short delivery time we have for our financial planning and performance analysis modeling tools," said Rick Goldstein, President & CEO of GPX Software.

"arcplan and PARIS have had a successful partnership for several years, with organizations around the world using our bundled solution to great effect, whether within their own organization or as tools to develop powerful BI applications to be sold to their own clients," said Roland Hölscher, arcplan CEO.  "With arcplan, PowerOLAP not only has its own real-time Excel interface, but also now a highly adaptable, very compelling visualization front end across the Web and all mobile devices that customers want to use," added David F. Presti, president of PARIS Technologies International, Inc.
