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 Is A Solid BI Solution. Implementation Is Easy And Dashboard Performance Is Quick.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Value for Money

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

It takes a lot of time to download a gadget as an Excel file, therefore you need to download it first as CSV and then convert it to Excel.

I have been using Sisense for quite sometime mainly for dashboard purpose where one can view their company’s performance updated in the real time. One stand out feature is that it can process huge data from different sources like a boss. We can also create our own columns in the sisense database(ElastiCube) using SQL commands. It is definitely one of the best intelligence product in the current market.

Pros

It can easily process up data from multiple different data sources.
Tool is self explanatory and it is easy to generate dashboard
Beautiful visualization capabilities.

They have made a significant investment into the tool's functionality and benefits it provides to the customer. The on boarding phase has been a long one for us but Sisense made an effort to give us all the resources they had to get us to our end goal. Their knowledgeable and extremely competent staff has helped us every step of the way. The result: a great BI tool that helps our company connect departments with data driven visuals, reports and key metrics.

Our overall experience can be described as excellent. The given support is superb and our CSM helped us every step of the way. As an OEM SiSense offers the right functionalities to distribute and scale. Furthermore there is plenty of whitelabel documentation ready for distribution

Pros

What I like the most about SiSense is the easiness of use and how quick we were able to be up and running. SiSense is a feature rich application, which can be even "richer" by using community build plugins and scripts.

It must be said that the Customer Support is sublime. They take Customer Succes to an entire new level

Cons

As an OEM user management is bit of an hassle. With alot of users and groups it takes a while to do this manually. They do have a rich API, but you need to develop an application to use these apis properly.

Sharing dashboards among users and groups could also be more user friendly. Batch sharing dashboards or a folder is not possible at this time

Pros

Sisense is a great BI tool that allows for a quick implementation and powerful data rendering. It enables users to quickly build advanced dashboards with its out of the box standard functionalities. Building data structures is fairly simple and can be done without writing queries. However, it is still possible to write queries on top of your data.

I also love how flexible it is. There is a standard set of widgets, sure, but by making use of plugins, javascript, and the API you can edit the widgets to fit your need. There is also the option to white label the system to fit your brand.

Overall, Sisense is a great tool that really helps to deliver business insights to your user fast.

Cons

The API connector documentation and connection process could be improved and some basic functionality could be more robust.

We were able to replace our discontinued software quickly.

Pros

Ease of use. Our previous BI provider gave us 90 days notice they were closing their doors. We were able to get a dashboard up quickly.

Cons

We would have liked more export options.

The front end is easy to work with and can produce impressive looking metrics within a very short space of time. Users love the way the platform looks and find the agility in terms of filtering provides insights which they wouldn't have looking at figures stored and presented in their traditional ways (in spreadsheets). Pulse alerts mean that some users only look at the data when it's needed - which is helpful for those employees in the business who aren't going to be spending time analysing the data themselves. The Elasticube manager (~back end) is pretty easy to work with once you get used to it and you understand the required behaviours when making changes. The possibility to write SQL statements in the Elasticube manager is a huge enabler and this functionality makes it much easier to produce the data we require - in comparison to some other BI tools which sometimes have more ~"specialised" language or custom expressions / formulas that are difficult / not so intuitive to work with. There is always room for improvement and there are features that you would expect to be available that are not. I suppose though one of the good things about Sisense is that there is an active community around the tool - where plug-ins, work-arounds and feature requests are logged and discussed.

Pros

User experience. People are always impressed when new dashboards are made available due to the excellent look and feel.

Cons

When working in the Elasticube manager there is no way to download the data, you always have to go into Sisense and create a dashboard and widget for the data you want to examine. This makes it more time consuming than it should be to test and validate the data in the Elasticube manager.
