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.

We've been using Sisense for more than a year. We have had challenges but both Sisense Support and the Sisense community have helped us. We use Sisense for real-time reporting.

Pros

User friendly BI tool for reporting in real-time. Sisense Support is very efficient and knowledgeable. Most of the answers could be found in community forums.

Cons

Customized dashboard scripts that are not supported properly after the initial implementation. Mobile experience needs to improve to meet expectations.

I highly recommend this tool to anyone who is looking for a reporting/dashboard tool.

Pros

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.

I built a large, complex dataset and was designing dashboards within 30 minutes.The ability to extend the capabilities using plugins is essential to getting good results.

Sisense can be very powerful, but it is important that your company devotes the proper time to on-boarding and start up due to its complex nature.

Pros

Data model easy to visualize in the Elasticube

Cons

Ticket answering can be slow and insufficient
While the Elasticube can be very powerful, if implemented incorrectly it causes a lot of problems.

There are number of things I like about Sisense. But as a developer/integrator I really appreciate and value their responsiveness to issues that we run into (whether self inflicted or not).

The support team was great and customer success manager Shimon was great to work with. He was listening to our requirements was helping us to navigate with the product and escalating to right people for fixing very critical issues.

Pros

Sisense is one of best Product we have been using for last 1.5 years. This product has features of HTML 5 portlets, REST API, Widget Customisation, Best UI experience, Integration to your systems using SSO, AI and Bots Integrations, Modern IOT, Sisense Bulbs, R-Integrations, Data Mining Models, Facebook & Twitter Social Data Integrations. Very easy to implement into the environment. In a traditional warehouse, it takes years to implement BI solutions. This one took few days to implement the solution.

Cons

They still need to Explore on Data Lake Scenarios. Few Features needs to scale up in terms Sisense Apps. Drill down is not available and few reporting features like exporting to excel and emailing to non-sisense users are not available.

Pros

If you are a heavy user, and know the ins and outs of how Sisense works, I think it's a good product as the dashboards and data is clean-looking and minimalistic.

Cons

It's hard for the average user to understand how Sisense functions. It's a little difficult to search for data. The worst I think is that Sisense does not download to a clear csv or excel format. I have to copy and paste the data from Sisense to excel. This only works well if the data is small. Long lists obviously requires multiple copy and paste, which is a hassle. Fixing this would go a long way of upping the user experience.

Functionality

Value for Money

I encourage to structure online materials with better tutorials and documentations. Many functions don’t have clear descriptions and examples. Then it will be easier to use them without spending extra time on understanding them.

Pros

Really easy to build basic dashboards which are included in the simple setup. For example pie chart or column charts look nice for simple analyses. Focus on visualization, which is good for end user. Charts look simple and clear

Cons

BUT when you want to make any improvement which is not the simple setup, then advanced java script knowledge is required. And many features which are widely used in other softwares are “extra” for sisense. For instance showing values on the column chart in the way they will be visible and not overlapping is an extra feature which has to be written in the script.

Ease of use. Not all of our team members are BI analysts and we feel comfortable having them build dashboards in SiSense. I reviewed more than a dozen comparable tools and very few, if any, were as simple and intuitive for non-expert users to build in.

Pros

Our team can use the software intuitively and we can create charts, graphs, and displays without having to reach out to the Sisense customer success team. Further, this intuitiveness is a major advantage for our clients to interpret their data easily and accurately.

Sisense allowed us to implement complex analytics solutions with data acquisition from many data sources . The overall performance of the ElastiCube and out of the box data adapters gave us the tools we needed.

Pros

Having it all delivered over the web has simplified and accelerated our ability to deliver high quality solutions quickly and cost effectively. It's great no to have to have any fat client foot print on any of our workstations or mobile devices.

Whereas our organization is working its way through the setup & implementation phase, we have so far seen how the product will not only improve upon our internal efficiencies, it will enable us to grant access to our client base/external users in a manner not easily available prior to our commitment to the product. The product itself is on the lower level of ease regarding navigation once the Elasticube is properly set up.

Just as important as the product is the Sisense team itself. From our Sales Manager (Connor) to our Customer Success Manager and Onboarding Manager, each have expressed a sincere commitment to ensuring a successful & efficient implementation of the product. They have not left us with a sense that we were just sold a product and once the deal was closed, they were ready to move on to the next deal.

Cons

From our experience, the product definitely requires someone to be well-versed in SQL to complete the Elasticube setup.

Provides great visualizations to ease the understanding of complex data sets.

Pros

Developing widgets for a dashboard (even complex ones) is far easier and faster than it is with competing products. User community is a strong asset. Elasticubes are able to accommodate many different files types with ease.

Cons

The initial set up turned out to be complicated and required IT investment, but perhaps that is due to the unique nature of our company's setup. Product is a bit costlier than Power BI, but the feature set and ease of use makes the cost well worth it. Though Sisense is Elasticube allows the software to quickly pull large data sets, it's difficult to create for the average user and requires a lot of technical expertise. In many cases, users must write SQL code, even though Sisense promotes its codeless reporting. However, to get to this codeless reporting you must have a very technical person to write the SQL to build their Elasticube and there are some limitations such as join types and such that create difficult workarounds. We have had former Sisense users complain to us that they experienced a lot of errors getting the Elasticube to load, and because the system relies upon the cube, Sisense won't work if the cube isn't working.
