arcplan Enterprise 7.2 Ready for Big Data
The new release from arcplan supports in-memory appliances used to analyze Big Data from SAP and Kognitio and also offers enhanced multi-tenancy to provide a foundation for cloud-based business intelligence.
arcplan, a provider of business intelligence and planning solutions, is introducing arcplan Enterprise 7.2, a new version of its software that includes MDX interfaces for the in-memory technologies SAP HANA and Kognitio Pablo. arcplan Enterprise was rated the top third-party tool for SAP BW, Oracle Essbase, and IBM Cognos TM1 in The BI Survey 10, published in 2011.
“We are very pleased to be one of the first BI vendors offering interfaces for SAP HANA and Kognitio Pablo," said Roland Hölscher, arcplan's CEO. "The business benefits for users are obvious: precise and meaningful information in real-time.”
Another highlight of the new release is layout management, which allows arcplan documents to expand and contract with the size of the user’s browser, to show as much information as possible whether users are viewing data on a smartphone screen or a larger desktop monitor. The application enables users to use available screen space without adjusting applications to a certain screen resolution or width.
The Enterprise 7.2 platform also offers enhanced support for cloud-based deployments of business intelligence applications. According to arcplan, the feature allows companies to provide different user groups with their own secure tenancies where they can publish and manage their applications. This multi-tenancy function allows a simple central provision of arcplan for separate divisions or sub-contractors.
