Essatto Software delivers an integrated enterprise performance management, business intelligence, and data warehousing solution, called Essatto, across a broad spectrum of industries. Essatto allows organizations to perform budgeting, rolling forecasts, variance analysis, cost allocations, and historical reporting.
Essatto Software’s customers are mainly midsize organizations that rely heavily on large volumes of operational and financial data from multiple sources to make informed business decisions. Built on Oracle technology, the Essatto system’s unique architecture pulls data from different sources, analyzes it, and delivers Web-based intelligence reports, analytic dashboards, and live-linked spreadsheets.
One customer that uses Essatto is Compass Group Australia, a subsidiary of the U.K.-based multinational catering services company Compass Group PLC. Compass Group Australia uses Oracle E-Business Suite as its enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, leveraging the Essatto system’s embedded Oracle technologies to develop budgets, produce Web-based management reports, and undertake variance analysis through inbuilt dashboards and an integrated spreadsheet interface.
Essatto Software chose Oracle technology to build the architecture for its Essatto system because of Oracle OLAP’s comprehensive performance and calculation capabilities, the powerful analytic capabilities of Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, and the scalability of Oracle Database.
“Essatto’s parent company, Ioppolo & Associates, has been an Oracle Partner since its inception in 1996, and we are consistently impressed by the strength, stability, and performance of Oracle products,” said Guy Ioppolo, managing partner, Essatto Software. “By working with Oracle, we are able to offer best-in-class technology and enterprise performance management solutions to our clients in a cost-effective manner.
“Essatto is used by many customers in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Ioppolo. “The upgrade to Oracle Database 11g and Oracle Business Enterprise Edition allowed us to leverage a proven, Web, service-oriented architecture to deliver next-generation business intelligence capabilities.
“Our customers want to analyze bigger data sets, and Essatto delivers this requirement. Essatto with Oracle Database 11g aggregates data up to 10 times faster, and combines scalability, performance, and security with prebuilt functionality. This provides customers with a cost-effective solution that can be delivered in a timely fashion.”
Essatto initially developed its business intelligence, enterprise performance management, and data warehousing software in 2006 using Oracle Express Server. The company upgraded its Oracle Database in December 2009, then in November 2011, upgraded again to Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition 11g with Oracle OLAP 11g and embedded Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition and Oracle WebLogic Suite into the software.
As an independent software vendor and part of the Oracle Validated Integration PartnerNetwork program, Essatto Software worked closely with Oracle while developing and upgrading its Essatto system to ensure it leveraged the Oracle products’ key features.
