Bissantz DeltaMaster

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.

With DeltaMaster, Bissantz targets mid-sized companies and large corporations 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.

DeltaMaster, Bissantz’s flagship product, offers flexible and integrated functionality for (advanced) data analysis (including statistical and advanced analytics methods), ad hoc reporting, dashboards and planning. 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.

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. As a front end, Bissantz DeltaMaster supports direct connections to multidimensional databases (e.g., Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, SAP BW/NetWeaver BI, IBM TM1, Oracle Essbase, Infor d/EPM OLAP Server) as well as relational databases (e.g., Microsoft SQL Server, SAP HANA, Oracle, IBM DB2, MySQL). Planning applications are mostly based on Microsoft SQL Server and/or Analysis Services. However, Infor d/EPM OLAP Server, IBM TM1 and SAP HANA can also be used for planning applications. In the Microsoft environment, Bissantz fosters a hybrid approach which combines multidimensional and relational data processing to deal with performance requirements in large planning scenarios.
