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 the solution 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. The product supports business departments in building detailed operational budgets. DeltaMaster contains little predefined business content and has the characteristics of a development environment that requires no programming. 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 BI OLAP Server) as well as relational databases (such as Microsoft SQL Server, SAP HANA, Oracle, IBM DB2 and MySQL).
