arcplan Strengthens Its Big Data Connectivity By Supporting Hadoop Distributions Through Partnership With Simba Technologies

Berwyn, PA/Langenfeld, Germany (I-Newswire) November 14, 2012 - arcplan, a leading provider of innovative business intelligence (BI) and planning software solutions, today announced its connectivity to Hadoop distributions through its partnership with Simba Technologies. With Simba's Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector, arcplan customers will have standard SQL and Hive Query Language (HiveQL) access to their big data.

Real-time, simultaneous access to multiple data sources has always been a cornerstone of arcplan Enterprise, one of the most successful BI platforms on the market. This partnership with Simba offers arcplan customers an easy way to analyze big data by treating it as a standard relational data source. Simba's Apache Hive ODBC Driver with SQL Connector enables arcplan customers to connect directly to their big data, enabling high-performance analytics without the need to extract the data into a proprietary data source.

"We are pleased to extend arcplan's big data analysis capabilities even further with this new driver from Simba," said Hans Peter Wolff, arcplan's CTO. "Our customers get the benefits of fast and easy analysis and reporting on massive Hadoop/Hive data sets in our simple-to-use BI platform, along with the benefit of integrating it with other corporate data within the enterprise for a full picture of organizational performance."

"arcplan provides broad and flexible BI capabilities, letting you focus on the performance of your organization and not the data," said George Chow, Simba's CTO. "Simba's Big Data ODBC driver makes it even easier for arcplan's customers to analyze and understand their big data, find patterns, and ultimately make better, faster decisions."

ODBC was developed in 1992 by Microsoft and Simba Technologies and has been the flagship API for SQL ever since. It is the most common data interface used by BI solutions like arcplan for relational data connectivity. The ODBC 3.52 specification - on which Simba's Big Data ODBC Drivers are fully compliant - is the foundation for standards-based access from BI tools like arcplan.
