Partner of IT:
Where standards reach the limits.
Software AG Innovation Day:
Software is eating the world (Zitat von Marc Andreessen).
BCD-Cel to combine flexibility with security
Performance of IT:
and proof of it is an important topic for IT management.
Standard-software and -methods are reasonable: We introduce them, whenever they fit. But we aim for complex challenges. For the process of adaption: where standards reach the limits. At this point we support our customers: individual, face-to-face and productive.
Nothing ‚from scratch‘. Our standard components – based on marketable computer languages and de facto standards – offer velocity and safe investment. Even more: Sub-projects and – results can quickly be realized. Or in iterative steps doing efficient adjustments.
And we are your partner. We do not only do the development. We like to talk to you: for example with all effected business departments. In this manner our experienced team consolidates all essential details and modules. And translates them together with our customers: in productive IT-solutions.
Our results are not only software solutions. They are the answer to complex challenges, which are transfered with the help of best-practices into custom-fit solutions. We do not hesitate to take an extra mile. Because the correct cut only stops when the end-service fits.
Individual software development must be trained. We assure the usage of the latest technologies. But there is something more to be done: the innovative and creative finding of an approach for the correct situation in your company. That is what we aim for – with all our knowledge. Made in Germany.
In addition to the general competence to be able to incorporate us into any technical issues to the extent that we make every project a success, we have acquired additional knowledge in a number of IT-topics. Here you can benefit from years of experience that have built up our staff with little turnover.
Important and relevant information must always be available
Correctness, accuracy and relevance of KPIs are of central importance
Trade, assistance, partial or total project leader: BusinessCode fills exactly the requirements
End2end responsibility of our employees covers rollout and training
We focus on database-powered web applications:
BusinessCode adjusts its flexible methods to the ideas of their customers. As pieces of the puzzle we complement precisely the methodology of our customers at an optimal structure for the project success. BusinessCode works with an agil project approach:
BCD-Suite is BusinessCode’s advanced software suite for building web applications working on complex data. It is in use by thousands of users every day in large companies. BCD-Suite consists of three modules:
BCD-Suite enables you to leverage industry experience in your tailor made solutions. Built only on today’s standard technologies, once set up, your internal IT can take over support and maintenance.
The BCD-UI library is now available as an open source community edition on GitHub.
BCD-UI provides the necessary client and server components for modern browser applications ranging from heavy desktop planning tools to mobile usage.
Its pre-built artifacts are combined to produce a user friendly powerful application, supporting your business needs with up-to-date technology.
At its core it consists of components of different abstraction levels, such as application life cycle, widgets and such complex components as scorecards or editable data grids.
Your ScoreCards cumulate the information into a set of KPIs. Together with targets, you see at a glance which areas need your attention.
Each participant in reporting sees the KPIs relevant for his or her area and a consistent drill path into lowest detail level is available.
When a KPI is not matching its expectation, i.e. it is below its target, a root cause/break-down for the KPI will provide an actionable view including an impact analysis. This root cause approach goes way beyond traditional BI, which basically leaves you without a clue about what to do. Instead, the root cause will nail down the actionable reasons behing the issues, enabling a much wider set of people to impact the ScoreCard positively than only analysts.
BCD-UI supports specialized reports without limitations for any level of user skill.
When it comes to analysts, you also have the option of creating your report on the fly in a pivot-like manner. But as opposed to what you do with a desktop spreadsheed, you can use virtually unlimitted data for this when using BCD-UI cubes without using proprietory storage.
BCD-UI’s reporting components include plain table views, tree views, drill downs, charts, etc. These views can be deployed as-is or can be specialized for improved user support.
Your reference data management on complex data goes beyond simple consistency checks. Using BCD-UI you can cover complex needs for specific entry masks as well as standard structures, supporting the user directly and efficiently.
Copy-paste editabled grids allow easy exchange of data with spreadsheets. Custom wizards support complex tasks like setting up base data for logistics networks and labor management. Manual uploading bulk data in csv format allows fast data integration until automized feeds can be deployed.
Often data can be best visualized on maps. This is not only true when representing KPIs on a higher level to top-management
Your data on local level may need to be shown on maps to be understood. For example delivery times for a logistics provider into a country will have a typical distribution and exception in a pattern. This can be clearly visible on a map and can easily hint you to where there may be errors in the data. As you know, this is almost impossible to detect in a table view, because you lack the geo-component of the data.
BusinesCode has extensive experience in providing specialized, navigatable and even editable maps, embedded in reporting and in reference data management.
Web is mobile enabled in todays world. Our components support development for all major mobile platforms in different ways. Keeping the content 1:1 can ease mobile roll-out a lot and can well be used, especially on tablets. For heavy used or complex pages, you can also create a mobile version with its own behaviour.
Our architecture is especially suited for mobile usage as our dynamic front end allows for zero time and zero network-usage switching of views when navigating between pages, that belong together. Watch yourself!
Today’s business rules go way beyond simple aggregations and the process view needs to be considered. The more complex these rules are, the more expensive and error prone the implementation will be. BCD-BusinessMirror keeps your efforts and development risks at a minimum.
As opposed to many other business rule engines, BCD-BM fully relies on SQL for its tasks thereby leveraging your existing warehouse power.
The standard approach requires the business users to write down the calculation logic in their language. Often they do not fully understand or know the actual data and have no access to it. Then, developers try to understand the rules and implement them in a different language. These indirections will always lead to buggy implementations and mistrust and high testing efforts. Also it is not possible to verify the implementation in detail.
BusinessMirror’s unique approach combines documentation and implementation into one step. Business users having knowledge of the data – or supported by a developer – can define the calculation rules in a graphical flow chart. This assures same understanding and provides the documentation without additional effort. It also provides the implementation in SQL form with just a button click.
The effort of clarification round trips, implementation and testing is reduced to a minimum, often saving 80% of the costs.
Debug your logic on individual process instances.
This core feature of BCD-BM is obviously important during setting up and testing the logic. But it becomes even more important when rolling out the solution to your company, when the need arises to assure that the numbers are trusted and possibly verified by other staff with appropriate knowledge.
Users of the platform get full transparency of the rules and calculations and can confirm the calculations are correct. Experience shows that after a while the usage of this feature goes down and the usage of the application goes up, because people know that the numbers are correct.

Combining data from various sources and of different types is one of your most difficult tasks.
Data can come from a variety of sources such as other databases, via ftp as flat files or from an online resource. Also, data needs to be cleaned, validated and verified. Calculations such as defined in the BCD-BM or in manual SQLs, are then to be applied at the data. All this needs to be executed and scheduled in a predefined order, well controled order. Exceptions need to be detected.
BCD-JC supports you by providing an extendable Java based job control framework. BCD-JC comes with predefined steps like accessing ftp, performing fastload to Teradata, extracting from Oracle or parsing .CSV files and many others.
A choice of our customers:
OPMS – central management tool for monitoring of performance IT4Business:
For several years, our customer has been undergoing a comprehensive reorganization and repositioning. In this context, the internal IT organization is being repositioned by the programme IT4Business. In addition to a redesign of the IT landscape, the systematic outsourcing of services is in the focus. The internal organization is focused on future architecture, on managing the partner and on the communication with internal customers, hence on the customers departments of the various divisions. As a central management tool, OPMS consolidates all relevant indicators of IT operations and divides them into different categories
This information is used to monitor SLAs with internal customers and to verify the partner companies as well as to control Six Sigma projects and initiatives. Information is made available to hundreds of users in different views and different analysis tools. Besides scorecard, dashboard and analytic tools, data can also be visualized on maps, e.g. to present information about the global operation in an intuitive way.
In 2012, our customer chose BusinessCode as a partner for the implementation and operation of the application, which since then has been provided in an ASP (application service provider) model. The system accompanies and supports the reorganization and Six Sigma process within the IT organization. The reporting system has been consolidated and re-installed using the application . The savings achieved through the application of the system are estimted to be around several million Euros.
Nearly all industries have to face and manage recalls and returns mainly in a complex international environment. Very often it is combined with repairs on top.
Thousands of companies are impacted. A recall can risk their revenue, damage their brand and customer relationships. Logistic companies have to be prepared with an appropriate plan, expertise and systems in place to support their clients in that field.
Our Customer, a global logistics company, manages its product offering with our complex data reference management tool. The most important data administrated are the transit times between the consignee and consignor and the respective latest pick up time to reach the planned transit time. Customers use this information to compare different carriers. Usually the carrier with the fastest transit time will be chosen. The management of this information, which is performed on individual zip code level, is one of the main tasks in a global network. More than thousand employees are involved in this task, which affects several management and function levels such as marketing, sales and operations. The system supports the management of the data and the basis workflow (approval process, 4 eyes principle, data validation versus actual transit times). BusinessCode was taken as a partner for the 5th version of this application. The task included the development of a new standard application from scratch for the global use with an innovative approach. BusinessCode could have the compatible basics to realize this requirement with their WEB 2.0 AJAX technology. The components of the application, which support the data entry and validation, are e.g.:
A leading express and logistics company had to redefine its approach on Performance Management after a series of mergers and acquisitions. The service quality of its offering was not satisfying and customers were complaining, central visibility on failures and improvement potentials were not available and local solutions were used in countries and regions. The setup showed the typical characteristics of a Performance Management in an early development stage (white or green belt level):
The Daily Transport Monitoring (DTM) application allows staff in the gateways to maintain data about actually driven trucks including data like load level and possibly delays. This data is needed for several purposes:
