Bissantz DeltaMaster BARC Review & Rating

This section contains our independent analyst views on Bissantz DeltaMaster.

Provider and product description

Bissantz & Company (Bissantz) is a medium-sized software company that was founded in 1996 in Nuremberg, Germany. The company specializes in solutions for demanding data analysis, reporting and planning tasks in business environments. Today, Bissantz has about 100 employees based in locations in Germany (HQ) and Switzerland. Most of Bissantz’s more than 500 customers are in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Worldwide consulting and support are available through certified partners.

Bissantz offers software and consulting services for business intelligence (BI), analytics and planning. Its software portfolio includes front-end and back-end solutions ranging from data integration to ready-to-use BI applications. DeltaMaster, the core product, offers integrated functionality for reporting, analysis and planning for business users. It targets mid-sized and large companies across all industries to support them in controlling and planning business performance. For data integration and multidimensional data modeling, DeltaMaster ETL supports standardized data processing, modeling and transformation procedures. Application Designer is the tool for relational data models. ‘Solutions’ bundle technical, business and process-related building blocks.

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. Distributing information as well as quickly understanding and acting on content are strategic topics for Bissantz. Besides its BI and analytics functionality, DeltaMaster can also be used to build or configure planning applications for top-down and bottom-up planning. As a front end, DeltaMaster supports direct connections to popular multidimensional and relational databases.

DeltaMaster offers comprehensive functionality for data analysis (including statistical and advanced analytics methods) with additional capabilities for reporting and dashboards. Dashboards and cockpits serve as a convenient entry point into analysis and reporting applications. They can be built by combining several DeltaMaster reports into a ‘Multiples Report’. Many predefined templates are available in the analytic library (i.e., where each method can be used as the basis of separate reports) or in the shape of ‘Magic Buttons’. In combination with Bissantz Solutions, a complete application-specific briefing book with predefined reports is generated. Users can also build individual static or dynamic reports using pivot tables or predefined analytic methods. DeltaMaster has several options for distributing reports and differentiates between access (i.e., online, offline-static, offline-interactive), output medium (i.e., Windows full client or web client; PDF, Word, Excel or PowerPoint file; HTML file; mobile briefing book on mobile devices) and delivery type (i.e., push, pull, e-mail, file server, DeltaMaster Repository, Bissantz Service). Analyses generally start from a pivot table (known as a ‘graphical table’) or a wide range of predefined analytical methods. Pivot tables support classical OLAP functions (e.g., drill-down, roll-up, slice and dice) for multidimensional data analysis. Most of them are also available for relational databases. In addition to classical business methods such as concentration, portfolio and cross-table analysis, the product also supports statistical and advanced analytics methods. Two of DeltaMaster’s key strengths are its vast array of intelligent analysis functions for large data volumes and its visualization options for data-dense dashboards.

In terms of planning, DeltaMaster offers all the components business departments need to implement individual planning applications to support top-down and bottom-up planning scenarios. Planning applications can be based on customer-specific data models or Bissantz’s prebuilt planning solutions, which can be adapted to customers’ individual needs. Thanks to the tight integration of planning with reporting and analysis, plan values are not only immediately available for forecasts, simulations and what-if scenarios but can also be used directly within reports and dashboards and compared with actual values. Workflow functionality supports bottom-up planning processes, whereby the planning status of involved parties can be displayed in DeltaMaster dashboards.

      Einfach genau so weitermachen.

      What key advice would you give to other companies looking to introduce/use the product?

      Weniger Wasserkopfen, schneller einsetzen und dann anpassen und optimieren.

      How would you sum up your experience?

      What do you like best?

      Die Analysemöglichkeiten und die Darstellung der Daten sind gut. Laufgeschwindigkeit auch. Vergleiche lassen sich gut darstellen und die Drilldown-Funktion ermöglicht eine flüssige Arbeitsweise. Guter Datenexport, um Nicht-User informiert zu halten, gute Publisher Funktion.

      What do you like least/what could be improved?

      Zur Planung ist das Tool in einem schnelllebigen Markt und bei vielen Artikeln und Kunden nicht geeignet, da nur mühsam höhere Planungsebenen eingezogen werden können. Plant man auf diesen, werden die Daten in die untergeordneten Ebenen hineingeschrieben und ergeben keinen Sinn mehr. Die Erfassung der Planung auf einer höheren Planungsebene ist mühsam. Das Splashing funktioniert zwar, ist aber sinnlos bei kurzen Produktlebenszyklen.

      What key advice would you give to other companies looking to introduce/use the product?

      Weniger ist mehr. Was interessiert am meisten, was sind die wichtigen Merkmale/Merkmalskombinationen, nach denen die Analysen stattfinden können müssen. Es sollten intern und dann mit dem Implementierer Workshops zur Selbstfindung stattfinden, v.a. dann, wenn bislang jeder für sich seine Auswertung gemacht hat.

      How would you sum up your experience?

      Im täglichen Reporting und für Analysen ein gutes Tool. Als Planungstool weniger geeignet. Stabil in der Performance.

      Entwicklung eines Prototyps mit Bissantz. Der Prototyp wird nach eigener Erfahrung sehr schnell durch Bissantz bereitgestellt - und nichts bereitet einen späteren Proof-of-Concept besser vor als ein Prototyp basierend auf den im Unternehmen vorhandenen Daten.

      What do you like least/what could be improved?

      Insgesamt ist der DeltaMaster zu restriktiv in seinen Möglichkeiten.

      Insgesamt tut der DeltaMaster, was er soll. Aber es ist Luft nach oben. Keine integrierte Planung.
