Bissantz

Bissantz DeltaMaster is a flexible, integrated BI and analytics product for (advanced) data analysis (including statistical and advanced analytics methods), ad hoc reporting, dashboards and planning. Analysis of large data volumes and data-dense visualizations are two of the product’s specialties.

Bissantz & Company (Bissantz) was founded in 1996 in Nuremberg, Germany. The company initially specialized in solutions for sophisticated data analysis tasks in business environments. Today, it has about 100 employees based in four locations in Germany and Switzerland. Bissantz DeltaMaster offers flexible and integrated functionality for (advanced) data analysis (including statistical and advanced analytics methods), ad hoc reporting, dashboards and planning.

With DeltaMaster, Bissantz targets mid-sized and large companies across all industries to support them in controlling and planning business performance. Most of its more than 500 customers are in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Worldwide consulting and support is available through certified partners.

The strengths of Bissantz DeltaMaster lie in its analytic capabilities, which include good support for proactive analyses as well as automated and predefined analytic methods with comprehensive visualization functions. Distributing information as well as quickly understanding and acting on content are strategic topics for Bissantz, and are reflected in the company’s “Look. See. Do.” mantra. For example, people respond better to colors or asymmetry than to classical tables of numbers. To this end, Bissantz uses color (e.g., in a feature called “report weather”) and visualization techniques such as sparklines and in-cell charts (e.g., bars) to direct the report consumer’s attention to certain content. Besides its BI and analytics functionality, Bissantz DeltaMaster can also be used to build individual planning applications with capabilities for top-down and bottom-up planning.
