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 approximately 100 employees based in four locations in Germany. The company has over 500 customers, primarily in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).
Bissantz targets mid-sized companies and large corporations across all industries to support them in controlling and planning business performance. Most of its customers are in the DACH region. 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 data mining methods), ad hoc reporting, dashboards and planning. The strengths of 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 functionality, DeltaMaster can also be used to build individual planning applications with capabilities for top-down and bottom-up planning. As a pure front end, DeltaMaster supports direct connections to popular multidimensional databases (Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, SAP BW/NetWeaver BI, IBM Cognos TM1, Oracle Essbase and Infor OLAP Server) as well as relational databases (such as Microsoft SQL Server, SAP HANA, Oracle, IBM DB2 and MySQL). Planning applications are mostly based on Microsoft SQL Server and/or Analysis Services. However, Infor OLAP Server, IBM Cognos 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.
