arcplan to Provide Analysis, Planning, Reporting Capabilities, and Real-Time Mobile Analytics for Teradata Data Warehouse Customers

BERWYN, PA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - arcplan, a global Business Intelligence (BI) software innovator, today announced a global partnership with Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), the world's leading analytic data solutions company focused on Integrated Data Warehousing, Big Data Analytics, and Business Applications, to provide customers with analysis, planning, reporting capabilities, and real-time mobile analytics for BI. The partnership will provide customers with a unique value proposition by leveraging Teradata's expertise in integrated data warehousing and arcplan's strengths in analytical BI and planning solutions.

By integrating arcplan's suite of products, Teradata's customers will now be able to seamlessly access data within their existing IT infrastructure to integrate BI reports instantly while minimizing total cost of ownership.

arcplan connects to the core Teradata database and provides full integration via the new "arcplan OLAP Connector for Teradata" which allows users to answer multidimensional analytical questions by slicing and dicing corporate data stored within the Teradata data warehouse. With this added capability, large data volumes are now accessible for fast analysis over the Web or on any mobile device, including ad-hoc reports for financial analysts as well as intuitive and interactive dashboards for executives and business users.

"In today's competitive and fast-changing markets, enterprises are seeing increased pressure to make educated business decisions based on large amounts of corporate data," said Roland Hölscher, arcplan CEO. "This partnership enables Teradata customers to use arcplan to quickly analyze information anywhere, anytime to make more informed business decisions."

The suite of arcplan products that Teradata customers will be able to access includes arcplan Enterprise, a lightweight, flexible engine for Web-based reporting and analytics; arcplan Edge, a budgeting, planning, and forecasting (BP&F) solution that comes out-of-the-box with report templates and a workflow engine that allows organizations to streamline the planning process; and arcplan Mobile, which provides real-time access to decision critical data on any mobile device.

arcplan's partnership allows Teradata customers to benefit from BI and planning applications that are rapidly deployed and built without programming. With intuitive ad-hoc reporting and self-service capabilities, users become more autonomous, ultimately increasing productivity.

"We welcome arcplan to the Teradata partnership community," said Scott Collins, Vice President of Global Alliances for Teradata. "Analytics and mobile interaction are clearly trending up at an explosive pace. Leveraging Teradata's in-database processing -- through our OLAP connector integration -- brings the best analytic platform capabilities into arcplan's reporting environment, supporting their strategy to capitalize on this growing market with their mobile computing and BI solutions."

arcplan will also be a Bronze sponsor of Conquering Complexity, the Teradata Partners Conference, taking place October 2-6 in San Diego, CA. The conference will provide sessions on best practices for capturing knowledge about customers and business ecosystems, as well as discussions on gaining deeper insights using new analytic capabilities that can help to increase operational efficiency, anticipate demand, and drive growth through innovation.
