Bissantz DeltaMaster

Bissantz & Company was founded in 1996 in Nuremberg, Germany. The company initially specialized in solutions for sophisticated data analysis tasks in business environments. Today, it has approximately 100 employees based in three locations in Germany. The company has over 500 customers, primarily in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Bissantz targets mid-sized companies and large corporations across all industries to support them in controlling and planning business performance, mainly in German-speaking countries.

DeltaMaster, Bissantz’s flagship product, is a flexible, integrated BI front end for dashboards, ad hoc reporting, advanced analysis (including statistical and data mining methods) and planning. Besides its classical BI functionality, individual applications for top-down and bottom-up planning scenarios can be created. The product primarily addresses detailed operational plans in lines of business, specializing in data-dense dashboards that conform to the visualization principles devised by Prof. Edward Tufte, Prof. Rolf Hichert and Bissantz itself. Analyses generally start from a pivot table or a wide range of pre-defined analytical methods.

As a pure front end, DeltaMaster supports direct connections to popular multidimensional databases such as Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, Infor BI OLAP Server, IBM Cognos TM1, Oracle OLAP, Oracle Essbase and SAP BW/NetWeaver BI/HANA.

User & Use Cases

Bissantz’s customers mainly use the product for ad hoc query, standard/enterprise reporting and basic data analysis. Budgeting/planning and dashboards/scorecards are also frequent use cases. Proactive analyses as well as automated and predefined analytic methods with comprehensive visualization functions are a specialty of the tool.

Bissantz targets mid-sized companies and large corporations across all industries. Almost two-thirds of our sample of Bissantz customers come from mid-sized companies with a median of 50 users, but the mean of 1,563 users indicates there are also some much larger implementations. DeltaMaster is geared to business power users with broad functionality for various BI tasks typically carried out by business users.
