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.

Sisense as a Survey Reporting Tool

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

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.

User-friendly tool allowing fast insights into your business performance

Ease-of-use

N/A

Overall I would say that Sisense offers good-value in terms of migrating your businesses cumbersome Excel / Access reporting into an impressive looking online platform. In doing so I think this will push behaviours towards a genuine business intelligence climate as the tool opens up many possibilities for analysis and insights.

Pros

One of the great things about Sisense is the ease by which the data can be pulled into the Elasticube and manipulated simply using SQL to prep your data. As well as this, the front end interface is intuitive and anyone with a basic grasp of tools like Excel will be able to produce impressive looking widgets. Features such as Pulse are useful additions for busy colleagues who only want to be alerted when there is an issue or a victory.

Cons

Some of the things that you would expect to be able to do in the Elasticube manager - such as the possibility to download data, say for validation purposes, aren't possible. That being said, there are commonly instructions or discussions about these limitations on the active Sisense community pages, but workarounds can be long-winded or rely upon plug-ins that your organisation may not permit, such as python scripts and so on.

Sisense as a company is a very passionate group. From sales through support I have never felt like they were done with us. As we continue our ongoing implementation it is always easy to communicate our needs with our success team.

Pros

Very easy to use. Performance is good. The team is constantly improving the product. Support sticks with you until you are satisfied.

Cons

Plugins can be inconsistent in overall utility. Requires plugins for some basic things. The product is still in its infancy in some ways which can lead to gaps in what it can provide.

Pros

I like that it has great presentation dashboards and the ability to melt other data sources into a single Elasticube.
The automated scheduled reporting feature is a key feature for our organization to provide senior leaders key snapshots.
The Customer Service team and IT is exceptional! They go above and beyond to help clients be successful.

Cons

Hoping to have more live data as well as a better Elasticube manager interface in the new 7.0 version.
Email and pdf formatting reporting is limited . Pivot tables with many rows truncate. Hoping this is resolved in future versions.

Overall very good software to use, relatively easy to create dashboards with little prior knowledge. Cube building is a little bit more technical without previous experience.

Pros

- Powerful BI software
- Easy to use the front end
- Easy to filter inside of sums (e.g Financial Year, types)
- Easy to use security features
- Flexibility to add custom data to tables in the cubes

Cons

- Not as visually pleasing as other BI software
- Filtering on the dashboards could be easier for the front end user
- Could have better in dashboard search functions

Easy, feature-rich, and customizable BI solution

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

SiSense has been a fantastic BI tool. Combining data from multiple systems is simple with their ElastiCube caching system. The ability to write pass-through queries at the time of importing the data and then custom SQL expressions on data within the cube means that the data can be arranged and linked as if it was natively in one large relational database. The visualization tool is sleek and easy to modify. The ability to add community-made plugins means the visualization options are virtually endless. My customers, both internal and external, routinely compliment the appearance and value of our BI implementation.

Pros

Community-driven Plug-Ins allow for unparalleled customization for someone who is not a developer.

Cons

Joining data outside of SQL expressions is an enforced inner join and null values will drop from tables. Be careful about dropped data!

Our business relationship and partnership with Sisense is among the main reasons we use and will continue to use Sisense's technology.
The support provided by everyone from Sisense is "top-notch," and without it the ATF would not be where it is today.

Pros

Provides a rich set of visualization widgets to create comprehensive dashboards.
Easy to navigate, filter and drill down to the details one needs to see.
Allows access to multiple data sources in a straightforward manner.

Cons

Some widgets need additional development.
Text is sometimes obscured depending on what is being displayed.
Dashboard developers should be comfortable programming Javascript.

Pros

Once you figure out how to build the back end and learn the dashboard formulas, it is relatively easy to learn. It is fairly easy to build out dashboards with multiple data sources. It is very customizable and can take numerous plugins without blowing up.

Cons

It helps to understand Sequel when getting started. I was hoping for more of a gooey interface. Customization requires JavaScript or at least copying in a plugin. You can get by without too much trouble.

Pros

Very User friendly interface, easy to get started and the training tutorials are extremely helpful in getting you familiar with the elasticube environment. You can build a working dashboard in minutes as long as your data is normalized. It can analyze large amounts of data very quickly and present the findings in a number simple and easy to understand views. The filters are also very easy to adjust and implement. Overall it was a pleasant experience creating dashboards using Sisense and the Customer service team was very helpful in answering any questions we had.

Cons

Very Important to ensure that your data is normalized before building the cube or dashboard. This is more of a basic requirement than a con, but is necessary for successful data aggregation.

From day 1, Sisense and their support team are there to get you going. They are ready to go immediately and will work as quickly or as slowly as you would like. The comprehensive training materials their support team offers was great and is a continued asset when there is something that I do not understand. The tool itself is powerful and intuitive. You do not need to be an expert data modeler to take full advantage of this tool.

Cons

There are a limited number of out of the box widgets. More can be easily added through their plug-ins though.

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.

I ran into many limitations in building a dashboard phase. For instance there is a problem with the collaboration of filters with each other. When displaying top x values for one filter, this display becomes static and not being influenced by other filters of the dashboard.
The aren't many option to change the design of widgets.
When renaming the cube's table, it is not reflected on the dashboard, and you have to go and change manually all the widgets that come from this table in all the dashboards.
