evidanza was established in 2004 as a software vendor developing its own BI and planning solutions. The company is based in Regensburg, Germany, has about 40 employees and currently serves around 300 clients in mid-sized companies. The vendor has a network of national and international partners.
evidanza targets clients requiring an integrated reporting, analysis and planning solution with collaboration functionality. The evidanza platform offers flexible capabilities for building individual top-down and bottom-up planning and BI applications with no specific market or industry focus. evidanza provides strong functionality, particularly for print reporting and the use of corporate designs.
evidanza can either be used with Microsoft SQL Server as the underlying database (including Analysis Services) or with speedBase, the vendor’s proprietary in-memory multidimensional database for speeding up storage of mass data within planning processes. Using Microsoft SQL Server, evidanza can access any source system with Microsoft’s SQL Server Integration Services ETL product. However, administration and particularly ETL in evidanza are relatively technical and require support from IT or tech-savvy business users. Comprehensive wizards support modeling of business and structural models as well as planning structures in SQL Server. Business departments can manage ongoing operations as well as build planning models, sub-budgets and budget templates on their own. With speedBase, evidanza can generally be used with any relational database, which serves as a central data storage to persist speedBase’s in-memory data (e.g. existing customer implementations use Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle or SAP HANA). The cycle of data synchronization between speedBase and the relational database can be freely adjusted in evidanza (e.g. batch, periodically etc.). speedBase serves as an intermediate multidimensional layer that can be modeled in evidanza (e.g. new cubes, dimensions, measures) and is optimized for parallel database access by many users for the specific case of data collection (multi-user storage optimization).
evidanza is capable of addressing numerous requirements across the BI and CPM spectrum. The vendor’s multi-client strategy offers many different ways to access the solution wherever users want – including desktop, browser, tablets, ERP systems and SharePoint.
