conesprit – the enterprise behind Sesam
Sesam, the SAP BI solution for SMEs, was developed in the successful software- and consultation house conesprit GmbH.
The service provider, founded in 2008, has specialized in individual consultation solutions for the entire Business Intelligence lifecycle.
Besides Sesam, the painting program BI Painter and the software package BI Director are two further successful products created and developed by conesprit.
The genesis of Sesam
We advise many different sectors and we have a very close and trusting relationship with our customers. Therefore, we know all about the continuous changes and new requirements of the companies. From experience we know that SMEs companies have problems with the introduction and the later operation of SAP Business Intelligence. This is particularly due to the fact that sustainable Business Intelligence solutions are very resource-intensive. They require a high amount of time and money.
We accepted the challenge and developed a resource-saving BI solution named Sesam, which responds to the individual needs of different businesses. How is that possible?
Sesam is a BI solution based on SAP and Microsoft Azure. The range of functions includes standard reports, standard dashboards, self-service BI as well as templates for sales planning and enterprise-specific applications. Through preconfiguration and standardization we achieve scale effects which we pass on to our customers. Besides the out-of-the-box reports, customized, company-specific applications can be developed.
Sesam can be installed on the company’s internal server. Even more practical is the installation on Microsoft Cloud Germany to which you have access from anywhere. Cloud solutions are managed and maintained by us even more efficiently and cost-effectively. These savings are also passed on to our customers.
Sesam is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). This means that you as a company have to pay no high initial investments; you pay a fixed monthly fee instead. Included in this monthly rent are the usage, operation and support of Sesam and regular further development of the standard reports. Sesam opens for you the way to economical, flexible and quick evaluations without having to strain other partner resources such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM).
