Adaytum strikes Andersen deal.

Andersen Consulting and business solutions provider Adaytum have joined forces to develop planning and forecasting applications worldwide, writes Alex Miller.

The deal was described by Adaytum as ‘the biggest single thing we’ve done’ and followed two months of negotiations.

Under the agreement, signed in mid-May, Andersen Consulting will add Adaytum e.Planning – the web-based planning and forecasting solution – to its product range for the finance market.

The two parties created the alliance to develop market-specific offerings utilising AC’s consulting expertise and Adaytum’s solutions.

Adaytum has agreed similar agreements with Deloitte & Touche and it is believed the company has reached an advanced stage of talks with PricewaterhouseCoopers over a similar agreement.

‘The commitment Andersen Consulting is making to our organisation and technology speaks volumes about its high regard for the Adaytum e.Planning solution,’ said Guy Haddleton, Adaytum CEO.

Dean Nichols, a partner in Andersen Consulting’s global Finance and Performance Management Practice, added: ‘Andersen Consulting has a history of bringing organisations the tools they need to positively impact shareholder value and organisational effectiveness.

‘The Adaytum e.Planning solution will complement our existing capabilities and help us to deliver even stronger solutions to our clients.’

The alliance will focus on education, government and high growth sectors. Adaytum e.Planning was the first web-based solution for collaborative business planning.
