Bissantz & Company is a software company specializing in solutions for demanding data analysis tasks in the business environment. We develop widely praised, multi-award-winning products and analysis technology, which we market under our own name and as OEM solutions.

University Background

The company was formed in 1996 as a technology spin-off of a research group at the FORWISS Institute led by business information specialist Prof. Peter Mertens. As part of the group, the two managing partners of the company, Dr. Nicolas Bissantz and Michael Westphal, developed fundamentals for the automation of data analysis between 1993 and 1996 and were able to demonstrate the suitability of data mining methods for business controlling (BETREX II project).

Close to our customers

Our customers benefit from standardized but highly customizable solutions that continuously and immediately incorporate the experience and knowledge gained from complex development and implementation projects.

Close to the world of research

We perform intensive fundamental research in cooperation with university institutes and transfer the results into our standard software for data mining, business intelligence, and data warehousing.


The company has its head office in Nuremberg, Germany. All of the central functions are based here, particularly research and development. The university with which we continue to enjoy a close relationship and the famous Nuremberg Castle are within sight.


We first opened a location in Hamburg in 2011. We expanded in 2017, moving into a traditional office building on the central Neuer Wall street.
