Traditional business intelligence is data-centric – you move the data to a single place to be used for analysis. With arcplan, it's different! arcplan quickly and directly accesses all of your data with arcplan Communication Interfaces (see table below), regardless of how and where data is stored. More importantly, your questions don't need to be limited to which system the data are stored in, and your reports aren't limited to one data source; arcplan lets you focus on the performance of the organization, not the data.

More than 20 data sources supported ...

An arcplan-based, multi-data source approach to enterprise performance management provides:

  • Support of full processes – Without analytical 'blind spots.' Drill into any system to get answers without manual intervention.
  • Real-time access and understanding – Access strategic, tactical and operational layers of your business to understand how your processes are performing and their strategic impact.
  • Speed of delivery and adaptability to change – Avoid unnecessary data movement to deliver business intelligence in record time, and respond to new IT systems, mergers and acquisitions, and reorganization without downtime.

Supported Communication Interfaces

arcplan clients often access more data sources in projects than with other BI tools. arcplan enables your BI and planning solutions to do more than just access different data sources - you interact with them, querying and analyzing across different data sources and performing write-back when permitted by the source system.
