Arc Reaches 500+ Subscriptions

Towards the end of 2018, we published a post sharing that there were over 100 IBM Planning Analytics (TM1) developers using Arc to build their applications.  At the time we were very excited about the early momentum we were seeing and we couldn’t wait to see where things would go from there.

Fast forward to mid-2022 and we now have over 500 TM1 developers who are active users of Arc.  It’s staggering to see how things have grown and we are immensely grateful for the positive support we have received from the community.


Perhaps the most gratifying part of growing the Arc ecosystem has been to hear from the many users who consider it to be a significant factor in improving their efficiency and productivity when building TM1 applications.  Here are just a few of them: 

“Arc is quite simply a game-changer for TM1 development which I cannot recommend highly enough.” — Garry Cook

“You really get a true professional IDE for TM1.” — Robert Milli

“breakpoints, debugging… all the things that developers have been pining for years are here.” — Alan Kirk

There are plenty more where those came from and you can see more testimonials here.

400+ Enhancements and 30+ Releases

Since the first official release of Arc in 2018, the team has consistently delivered on several new features requested by our users.  Let’s have quick look back at the main milestones over the years:

Arc v0 (beta) – Process and Rules Editors

Arc v0 (beta) was focused on improving the existing features that a TM1 developer needs such as the Process and Rules Editor.  It also added a debugging feature to help you step through your code while it is being executed.

Arc v1 – New Innovative Features

Arc v1 added many new innovative features to speed up your development such as the advanced search which allowed developers to quickly find an object or the security module which gathers all the security operations into one location.

Arc v2 – Desktop App

Arc v2 introduced the desktop application to make it easier to work with multiple windows.

Arc v3 – Slice

Starting with Arc v3, you can now use Arc inside Excel.  This new Excel add-in is called Slice and you can use it to create active forms within your existing Excel models.  Slice has been built for those who love TM1 Perspectives and want to use hierarchies:
