arcplan's # 1 ranks include:
· Innovation: This reflects four new technologies -- cloud BI, collaboration, mobile BI and visual analysis. According to BARC, arcplan has shown strength and focus in developing new products in these areas that customers have started to deploy.
· Competitive Win Rate: Even in large enterprise projects where companies often have standardized on larger vendors, arcplan is able to hold its own. According to BARC this is an effect of the product's functionality and flexibility.
· Customer Satisfaction:
"As a niche vendor competing against BI giants, arcplan's results are impressive. The company has been able to keep product quality high because, unlike other vendors, it has not had to go through complications of combining products and instead continues to develop around its core, arcplan Enterprise,"
"We are particularly proud of our #1 ranking for Innovation this year," explained Roland Hӧlscher, arcplan's CEO. "We're pleased that our customers and the BI industry at large recognize the work we've put into modernizing traditional business intelligence. Over the past few years, we have transformed arcplan into a unified platform for key analytical requirements, from reporting to planning, mobile BI, and collaboration. Our focus has paid off in this year's BI Survey results."

Lastly, arcplan remains the leading frontend to IBM Cognos TM1 for the 3rd year in a row, besting Cubeware Cockpit and Oracle Hyperion Planning.
