Arena tracks the items and BOMs you select, and a monitoring feature indicates when they change. You can manage your
own reconciliation process, or select one of our automated integration solutions for synchronization with leading CAD,
EDA, and ERP systems. Arena also offers comprehensive custom integration services to assist with project management, data
mapping, or testing to support your own unique requirements.
Managed or automated, it’s your choice
Arena puts you in control: you can perform your own reconciliation, or choose an automated solution. Whatever solution you
choose, Arena supports you every step of the way with monitoring and configuration assistance. You get peace of mind from
knowing which changes in Arena have been propagated to your enterprise applications—with no guesswork, no headaches,
and no astronomical price tag.
If you choose to manage your reconciliation yourself, we’ll tell you what’s changed and help you track your progress.
With the built-in integration management capability of Arena, you’ll be able to manage the data synchronization of multiple
enterprise systems, each with its own uniquely defined administrator
The managed integration capability will allow you to:
- Establish an integration for each destination enterprise application.
- Track multiple items for each integration.
- Assign unique Integration Administrators to each integration.
- Review the changed data in a single view.
- Easily reconcile each update.
We’ve also built a collection of powerful integration solutions that synchronize Arena data with leading enterprise software packages.
These automated solutions connect directly with your enterprise applications to ensure that Arena data is properly integrated. You get accurate
data transfers built on a sophisticated platform configured for you by our expert integration team.

Instant visibility into your integration progress
Whether you choose managed or automated integration, the Integration Monitoring & Management tool tracks the items you specify and
indicates when the data has been changed in Arena. You can track changes to inventory disposition notes, specifications (including custom
attributes), BOMs, and sourcing information. You get a clear list of accumulating changes, updated on the fly, so you know instantly what data
is waiting to be reconciled.
Status at a glance
Arena gives you an extra level of visibility into the status of your integration system: the Integration
Monitoring & Management tool—right on your Arena Dashboard. This module uses a straightforward, color-coded system to show you whether
your automated synchronization is completely up to date, has queued changes to be reconciled, needs your attention, or has been disabled. From your
Dashboard, you can access the list of changed data that has been queued, and if you need to, you can access the Integration Maintenance Tool for
more in-depth information.
