The ALICE Experiment is currently undergoing a major upgrade program, both in terms of hardware and software, to prepare for the LHC Run 3. A new Software Framework is being developed in collaboration with the FAIR experiments at GSI to cope with the 100-fold increase in the number of recorded events. We present our progress to adapt such a framework for the end user physics data analysis. In particular, the design and technology choices are highlighted. How Apache Arrow is adopted as the platform for the in-memory analysis data layout is discussed. The benefits of this solution are illustrated, these include: efficient and parallel data processing, interoperability with a large number of analysis tools and ecosystems, integration with the modern ROOT declarative analysis framework RDataFrame.
