Sisense Software


Sisense is an agile business intelligence (BI) solution that provides advanced tools to manage and support business data with analytics, visuals and reporting. The solution allows businesses to analyze big and disparate datasets and generate relevant business trends for them.

Sisense allows businesses to combine data from many disparate sources and club them into a single database. Once done, the solution itself rearranges data into a predefined standard format. Users can then perform slicing and dicing over the complete data set using multiple filters and built-in analytic tools.

Sisense includes functionality for dashboards and scorecards, data warehousing, extract, transform and load (ETL) and a query and report writer. Sisense provides a variety of dashboards to project the data through maps, KPIs, charts, trends, scatter plots and more.

Sisense uses Crowd Accelerated BI technology that provides capabilities for sharing analysis with users, both within and outside the organization. Users can share single analysis or a complete dashboard with their teammates or with the entire organization.

Sisense can be deployed on-premises or hosted in the cloud as a SaaS application.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 8 , Windows 10

    Sisense solved a problem for us - we needed to be able to get project related metrics out to our project managers in real time.

    Pros

    The thing I like most is that it was built with the end-user in mind. No need to have a complete IT team dedicated to creating and running reports. The elasticube drag and drop functionality takes the complexity out of knowing how to join your data. There are so many options in the dashboard tool that your finished product is so visually pleasing, making the analysis more enjoyable.

    Cons

    There is really nothing not to like! Their support is so helpful that when you come across something that you need help with, you can either find an article with an explanation or submit a ticket to work with someone on their team.

    Pros

    Their assistance individuals are effective, expert, knowledgable, and simply great individuals. There have actually been obstacles as we press the limitations of performance, however assistance from both the sisense assistance and the sisense neighborhood individuals has actually enabled us to press through those obstacles. Sisense has a important and exceptionally helpful item today, and I eagerly anticipate seeing the item roadmap concerned truth.

    Cons

    The mobile experience isn't really almost as abundant as I 'd like. I don`t like the limitations in the elasticube environment to apply DAX functions.

    It does the job and makes working with large amounts of data easier.

    Pros

    It has plenty of room for growth and development. If you're familiar with SQL – the number of things you can do with sisense is limited to your imagination

    Dahsboards we built with sisense always do the job of delivering data and pleasing the clients.

    Cons

    I hate to say this, but it's not the cheapest tool out there which makes you wonder if there are better solutions in terms of price/quality.

    Implementation was easy and dashboard performance is quick. Being a true end-to-end BI solution has its pros and cons depending on the scope of your needs, but overall I have been very satisfied with my choice to go with SiSense.

    Pros

    Many BI solutions require significant infrastructure and/or IT resources to administer/manage its implementation. SiSense does not require this, and its ease-of-use, speed of performance, and broad feature set will satisfy most BI needs.

    Cons

    Pricing based on user discourages widespread adoption. There could also be some improvement in the front-end/UI feature capabilities, with less reliance on custom plug-ins and scripting.

    Pros

    I only had basic knowledge when my company first implemented this software and within a few months I had learnt so much from the wonderful on-boarding, webinars and from the great support from the people at Sisense. It was simple for even a novice to pick up and I like the fact that they are forever improving the software and listening to the people that use it.

    Cons

    We have experienced a few problems with the server and regularly have to reboot the system when the dashboards decide not to load during they day. Sisense are working with us to make these outages rarer.

    The capacity to access data from different frameworks inside one tool allows us to continuously reduce the data silos at present.

    Pros

    The ability to 'plug in' and connect a variety of tools within sisense is great. (API Integration).
    Sisense can handle large data sets which is easily view-able. The ability to bring in a number different data sources into one elasticube provides a great centralised data hub. From this we can quickly create dashboards.

    Cons

    There are some simple user friendly functionality pieces missing. Such as the ability to copy/ move folders across the platform.

    Being able to display our data in a visually engaging form that is popular among our users

    Pros

    The visual representation of the data really makes the data engaging and easy to understand which is very beneficial for our users

    Cons

    More customization across widgets and dashboards would be beneficial. The use of D3 is great however being able to have this directly in Sisense would be great.

    Makes it easy to answer business questions and a great tool to present the right data to the right people

    Pros

    The elasticube makes it easy to collate and cross connect different data sources. The product is also always evolving and so the features, which are incredibly diverse are always improving from adding standard visualisations to integration with R there is always something new .

    Cons

    There is a gap in that it's difficult to aggregate by time, this I believe has now been fixed in the latest version

    Pros

    1) It's fast than compared to other BI tools that we have experimented
    2) Good Customer Service
    3) A lot of visualization capabilities
    4) Very easy to use. I am completely new to data-modeling and dashboarding, but this fears are eliminated with Sisense tool.

    Cons

    While it is easy, as you get further into it, it is missing various functionalities. Such as creating relationship easily instead of writing full sql code.

    However, I am glad that they are always updating us on the roadmap, and most of the problems can be solved via CS/Community.

    Lesser plug in is required in the system as sometimes pug in does interact with the version. Plug ins need to be added as main feature of the application.

    Data Visibility, Self-service reporting

    Pros

    Sisense is easy to set up and use, the user interface is intuitive and responsive. This platform has allowed us to implement self service reporting nearly company wide.

    Cons

    Some of the data connectors can be difficult to use. Most are easy, but the handful that are not sometimes don't have up to date documentation, which can make integration challenging.

    Elasticube very old fashioned interface, visualization capabilities still below average. Hope they will invest more on real time data connectors and expand the product features to please also a more tech-savvy audience.

    The Sisense support team is responsive and has been helpful in getting things resolved. Sometimes there is a tendency to simply ask for .dash files and tell us to turn all widgets off....and that usually means the person hasn't read the issue properly. It wastes time and is frustrating. Other than that, I have found everyone sincerely wanting to get to the bottom of things and be supportive and helpful.

    Pros

    Great design - dashboards are looking wonderful and clients love them. The interface is generally simple and easy to use - don't have to be a coder or developer to use it.

    Cons

    There have been some bugs. Some "normal" functions seem harder than they should and require extra time and programming skills.

    Pros

    It is really a timesaver once you've set up your elasticube and start building your dashboards. For our first use case, we set up a Dashboard that the user can access at any time whereas before, the Analyst team would receive a request every so often that would require us to run the report, manipulate it and put it into a pivot and email it to her.

    Cons

    We are still new to Sisense (only a few months in), but wish there were more customization to the font size/color of each widget on the Dashboard.
