Langenfeld, Germany/Berwyn, PA – August 28, 2012 – In just a few weeks, arcplan's annual conference arc|planet 2012 will kick off with more than 200 users, experts, arcplan partners and other guests at the Park Inn Hotel in Düsseldorf/Kaarst. On October 30 and 31, participants will learn directly from arcplan customers about the competitive advantages and ROI they can achieve by implementing business intelligence (BI) and planning solutions from arcplan. arc|planet attendees will have the opportunity to network and share their thoughts with the arcplan team as well as other users, industry experts and partners on topics such as mobile BI and big data. This year's theme, "It simply works," will be affirmed in numerous talks on the deployment of arcplan solutions. Participants will hear that BI solutions from arcplan provide an amazingly uncomplicated answer to the increasingly complex requirements of daily business and support companies in the ongoing optimization of their business processes. 

At the heart of the conference for German-speaking participants will be the more than 20 talks by experts, arcplan employees and customers who will provide attendees with exclusive insight and valuable information on resource optimization using BI. 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.
