"Makes Business Intelligence and analytics accessible for everyone"

What do you like best?

Really easy to use. We've been using SiSense for a few years and even without any particularly technical people involved at our end we find it straightforward to create a variety of powerful reports that fuse together data from a number of different sources to give us really useful insights that we wouldn't be to be able to get using other tools. Managing data and building dashboards is intuitive and feature-rich, and the data security features are incredibly useful for making sure end users are seeing the data they should be seeing (and sometimes more importantly, not seeing the data that they shouldn't!). Customer support are incredibly responsive and helpful and there is a huge amount of support material available online.

What do you dislike?

On the (rare) occasions when there are problems, the error messages are often unhelpful. They're either too vague and we don't know where to start looking or so specific and technical that they might as well be in Greek. This is somewhat mitigated by the quality of the Customer Support who usually solve these problems for us promptly, but there have been times when we could have solved it ourselves if the error message had been more understandable.

There is a mobile app, which does work as described but the experience is often unsatisfying and could definitely be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the support material. There is a real wealth of information in the tutorials, webinars and the community forums.

Spending time on planning during (or even before) the implementation stage can save a lot of time later, particularly with the data models.

"Outperformed our expectations"

What do you like best?

user friendly tutorials; organizational guidance; our training guru Yuri was amazing; the whole team of James, Yuri and Jan were able to help us push until we got what we needed and then get us to what we wanted

What do you dislike?

initial help desk response was lacking in depth and understanding

Recommendations to others considering the product

We chose Sisense in order to have a simple way to present information to our clients that didn't require any one on our team to become a full-time IT operative. We created a straight forward dashboard that met our needs but, when we were ready to make it more sophisticated, it only took some plugins (from the Sisense library) and some help with SQL script. Just as important as ease of use, the key to any dashboards success is organization. It's worth the time to take advantage of the Sisense planning documents and goal setting process. This is something to be aware of because some providers expect you to handle all planning and then teach mechanics only.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

clean, effective communication without each user having to become a dashboard operations expert; offer our internal and external users point and click analysis and reporting; we all see the same view so communicate to the same information; adaptable to tablet and phone allowing us to give the user a more precise view; alerts offer timely notices to so users can get ahead of issues; we figured out we could offer more to all users just by adding some widget filters making the dashboard even easier than expected to use

"Visually Appealing, Fast, and Intuitive"

What do you like best?

Sisense is a great choice for organizations that want to manage data models centrally and perform all modeling and dashboard development in a web-based environment. Sisense dashboards are very fast and the experience for "view only" users is very intuitive. I find it to be the most visually appealing option among the top modern BI visualization platforms. The drill-down functionality is far better than the competition.

What do you dislike?

While seemingly any function is possible within Sisense, many things need to be done with plug-ins or javascript. Some of the top competition has invested in more advanced functions built into the application, which makes it easier for non-technical users to develop dashboards with minimal IT assistance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sisense is being used as our primary data visualization tool throughout the company. We implemented Sisense in parallel with a new Data Warehouse to create a single source of truth for all departments and eliminate costly and error-prone manual reporting efforts. It has created efficiencies in the reporting processes throughout the company, exposed data quality issues, and provided actionable insights that should lead to increased revenue.

"Very good product, getting better all the time!"

What do you like best?

There are a LOT of powerful-yet-easy-to-use charts & other presentation tools, that can be used to build a Dashboard in a very short time, with minimal expertise. In addition to the mostly pre-formatted graphic 'widgets', they offer multiple APIs for customization and integration, which require a lot more time & effort, but recent videos & webinars are helping ease the 'learning curve' on that as well. The wide range of connectors and modeling dynamics available in their ElastiCube design help ensure that the fullest access methods/modes and most elegant structural designs can be applied to the supporting data. And their ever-growing list of supported 'add-ons' and 'plug-ins', coupled with their strong technical support and very 'active' customer management style, guarantees the greatest probability of success.

What do you dislike?

Their overall website design, & specifically support ticket interface, is somewhat less-than-intuitive at times, but they do 'welcome' feedback (even if response/resolution time is a little disappointing).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take utmost advantage of as many current webinars as possible, as they offer latest/greatest info on capabilities & changes, and allow you the opportunity to ask specific questions of the company's best experts & 'insiders'. Also, try to fully utilize the requirements analysis tools (documents & techniques) provided by the Customer Success Manager (CSM) and make the most of your interactions with them and any technicians with whom you're placed in contact.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sisense is helping us gain a better understanding of the data we have to work with. This includes discovering previously-unknown correlations or disparities, as well as data entry &/or quality shortfalls. The insights into trends and real-time status monitoring and notification tools are raising management awareness and moving us closer to a proactive vs. reactive posture.

"Sisense puts data science in your hands... What you do with it is up to you"

What do you like best?

All of the tools are there to adequately design a serviceable Data model for reporting against. There is enough ETL capability to hack it all together and provide the front end with what it needs to display data accurately.

What do you dislike?

ETL is limited to SQL mainly. This seems to make the design and implementation of a full enterprise data warehouse extremely difficult. The front end can be a little clunky, especially the PDF printing which never seems to get the format correctly. It is mostly meant to be used with dashboards in browser, which I understand but doesn't work for the technically illiterate (Which we have more of than I'd like to admit at my 3PL company)

Recommendations to others considering the product

The product fits well for our business which is medium size ~200 employees. Our data is not overly complex but the quality/governance is poor so single source of truth generation and consolidation is a high priority. ETL is almost purely SQL which makes it accessible and learnable as long as you know your data sources well. You don't get your hand held but it'll get the job done if you are competent

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sisense allows us to produce good looking accurate reports out of multiple legacy systems which was previously only possible via intensive manual processes. It makes the analysis of or data possible across many dimensions nearly instant (after proper modeling). It also allows us to construct a single source of truth which is desperately needed due to poor data governance across several redundant data entry systems.

"Excellent. Makes BI Dashboards easy and give you room to develop BI into something bigger"

What do you like best?

Very stable and easy platform to grow your MI dashboard business and insight. While you can get up and running quickly with simple dashboards we have found that the platform is capable of much more with live integrations and big data sets. The data is very easy to share. The Sisense team is really nice to deal with and positive and the support is excellent. I do feel they truly want us to succeed. They are also proactive with new developments to make sure the product is at the leading edge of integrations and capability. They have also been very supportive of us pushing the boundaries of what is possible with Sisense and helping us find great development partners. It really has transformed our company's understanding of our business.

What do you dislike?

It is not really a dislike, more of an observation that you will likely need help integrating more complex data and formulas when you move out of the basic level, but we have found great partners through Sisense to work with us. If you factor that in (and the cost) at the start it will help

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bringing a large number of disparate data sets together, ranging from manual app based information gathering to per second live data in a single place, then analyzing that data to ensure our business is optimized. Creating automatic revenue and performance reports for stakeholders and automating other processes. this has reduced costs and increased performance and profits.

"A finicky and slow way to view your data"

What do you like best?

After enough help from our business intelligence team to properly get a dashboard set up the way I like it, I find that the most useful part of the software is the ability to download a set of data as a CSV file. I can then import that CSV into excel, make it into a pivot table, and manipulate all the data that way. It's much faster and easier than constantly trying to add / remove rows or values.

What do you dislike?

Maybe it's just the way it was set up for me, but the tool barely provides any amount of info on the screen at one time. It lets me scroll down about an inch, and then lets me jump to another page of data. Instead of having 5000 pages, just giving more data per page would be a good fix. The software is also clunky. Everything takes a while to do when performing data analysis. I tend to often move around my categories when I'm performing analysis and Sisense just doesn't offer a great tool for us to do that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just download everything as a CSV and play with it in excel - it'll save you a headache.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sisense was used as a business solution to allow everyone at our company to look at data without being competent at using MYSQL and performing complex queries. Our Business Intelligence team has created several tools and dashboards withing Sisense for our different teams needs. On the surface it is great at providing a high level overview of what's going on at the company.

"Trajectory to Greatness"

What do you like best?

Sisense has made some exceptional decisions in its underlying architecture. They have embraced an API first approach to the technology they offer. This is unusual for a BI platform, yet gives Sisense a competitive advantage when scaling out for the cloud. The underlying columnar data store (named after a French Impressionist painter) is applauded for its speed. Sprinkle in a web based dashboard authoring tool, white labeling support, a large collection of data connectors, and extensibility and you have a platform for success.

What do you dislike?

Sisense is growing rapidly and there is dilution of knowledge internally. This means, that the more complex your implementation the thinner the support you will have. You would be better off engaging their professional services organization. This is changing quickly, but in our experience, not fast enough.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider engaging profession services to large scale out high availability implementations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When are a FinTech company and using Sisense to serve internal analytics and provide reports and analytics to our customers via white labeling Sisense.

"Robust and easy to use."

What do you like best?

The onboarding process was especially well put together. I found the concepts easy to grasp and the product was much more powerful and much more he user-friendly than other BI solutions that I have tried. Additionally, the availability of plug-ins as well as other customizable features make this product very adaptable to my needs.

What do you dislike?

Haven't really found any serious issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dynamic, active feedback on current metrics. This allows our radiologists to monitor their productivity throughout the day as well as receive alerts for critical cases that are about to exceed our turnaround time commitments. We have been able to realign our schedule and shifts to better meet the actual demands of our client hospitals.

"Great Product - Next Level"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility of the architecture that allows you to build to complicated data structures. I also like the ability to filter into formulas separate from the actual dashboard

What do you dislike?

I don't like the complicated setup process and the quick onboarding process. We definitely have a complicated data model, so I understand that we may not get everything done in the onboarding session, but we were all over the place in the building of the model. I had to take it upon myself to build and reconstruct what the TA did due to not understanding to model

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely discuss limitations of Cloud vs. On-Prem. Some restrictions could make it difficult to fully utilize

"Implementation Was Great, And Support Continues To Be Great. We Enjoy Pushing The Limits"

What do you like best?

Great experience. We use Sisense both internally and resell (OEM) to our clients. Sisense implementation team did a great job helping us to complete our first use cases, which was a great source of hands-on education. We've been running with Sisense for more than a year and have seen useful new features, design updates, and bug fixes. Their support people are efficient, professional, knowledgable, and just nice people. There have been challenges as we push the limits of functionality, but support from both the sisense community and the Sisense support people has allowed us to push through those challenges. Sisense has a incredibly useful and valuable product today, and I look forward to seeing the product roadmap come to reality.

What do you dislike?

The mobile experience isn't nearly as rich as we'd like. They've grown quite a bit there in the last year, but still needs more capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to dedicate time and resources to the implementation stage. We learned so much during implementation and really improved our knowledge of the product. Don't slack here.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Real-time Internal visibility to operations for account and executive management, also providing similar visibility directly to clients through OEM license of Sisense. We've become dependent on the operational analytics from Sisense for both assessing the success of recent feature updates and prioritizing new features.

"We needed a BI solution we could integrate, implement and embed quickly and easily. Sisense did it."

What do you like best?

The Elasticube manager makes creating datasets easy and fast. 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. The user community is very active and knowledgeable. I find most of my questions are answered with a quick search.

What do you dislike?

The ease of use of the designer is great, but it sometimes limits the capabilities I've had in other platforms. There's usually a way to get it done with a plugin or a clever work around. The Elasticube Manager is great too, but the ability to do transformations should be easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the on-boarding process. The consultant assigned to us was very helpful in getting us up and running quickly and designing compelling dashboards.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a solution for our customer portal that supported a high level of data security, was easily embedded and could produce compelling dashboards. Our customers love it and we've been able to make it intuitive so most can pick it up right away.

"Democratising your data: a BI tool that gives colleagues access and freedom to explore"

What do you like best?

Easy to use and intuitive data interface: the Elasticube builder's graphical user interface makes for very easy setup from a data perspective.

Intuitive dashboard creation process: with barely any tweaking, your dashboards and widgets look great.

Finely tunable access control: with cube-level and row-level access restrictions, you can ensure that the right colleagues have access to the right information.

Sundry things: the ease of replicating and downloading dashboards, the ease of downloading the data behind a widget (especially helpful for winning over colleagues from an Excel background), the intuitive nature of setting filters' impact to exactly what you want.

What do you dislike?

Currently no Elasticube manager for Mac (I understand that this is changing in upcoming releases).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SiSense is used to give users access to the company's data asset in a compliant way.

The dashboards ability to show information from a very high level, down to row-level detail *AND* give selected users the ability to download the underlying data goes a long way in building user confidence in the product.

"Sisense Provides Great Data Visualization Tools "

What do you like best?

I've used Sisense for several years and I really like some of the new features they've added to this latest version. My new favorite features:

1.) data security by user group- allows scoping of data based on the group to which a user is assigned

2.) table views of data that are easily exported to CSV for Excel

3.) One button print to PDF for all users

My favorite features since our initial launch:

1.) Response times for large data sets - It's amazing how much faster Sisense Elasticubes are at filtering large datasets than an MS SQL query

2.) Ease of importing multiple data sources on any sort of recurring schedule

3.) Ability to create formula based data tables and columns in an Elasticube using other imported tables

4.) Ease of installation on our own hosted cloud platform

5.) Number of official and third party plug-ins

What do you dislike?

There are a few areas I'd like to see some improvement in for the Sisense platform. Personally I'd like to see some flexibility of join types within an Elasticube to something other than just "inner". I'd also like to see more granularity with the built-in map widgets. For the United States, the maps only go as far down as state level. I'd love to see county and zip code maps become an integrated widget.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SIsense is currently a WYSIWYG implementation for designing and building dashboards. So if you're used to more of a studio environment where you design and then publish to the web, this will take some getting used to. The WYSIWYG development does have a few short comings in terms of customization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We currently use Sisense to track key performance indicators of state organizations related to probation and parole. These KPIs are now easily tracked across date ranges and states with ease. In addition to KPIs, Sisense allows us to get a high level view of the demographic breakdown of our data sets that wasn't easily possible before.

"Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

Ease of use and seamless integration between data sources. The ease of use of the front end is another great benefit of this tool. There are built-in connectors for almost all mainstream data sources, including, redshift, big hive, facebook, google adwords, google analytics. The web-based dashboards can be accessed from anywhere and are very easy to create. The visualizations and widgets supported by the dashboards are above par as well. Mapping solutions on sisense are still relatively limited but I see Sisense making good progress on that front as well. Overall, it is a great full stack Business intelligence solution that would be very easy to adapt.

What do you dislike?

Limitations in the elasticube environment to apply DAX functions

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an easy to use product that provides an excellent platform for integrated data analytics.

Laying the framework of descriptive analytics. Real-time analysis of data.

"Powerful BI with incredible ease of use"

What do you like best?

Sisense offers incredible flexibility when accessing not only multiple data sources but multiple types of data sources. I have easily connected MySQL databases, Google Sheets, and Zendesk. Particularly, the ability to create a custom query when building the Elasticube as well as further SQL customization in the Elasticube schema affords me the opportunity to make sure I have exactly the right data for my dashboard designers.

The dashboard creation is impressively featured, including the addition of plugins to implement additional functionality. The visualization is nice and most data presentations I need are included.

Installation and upgrade are almost effortless and I have never run into implementation issues.

What do you dislike?

I would the ability to include other types of joins other than INNER in the Elasticube but I have been made aware that that functionality is on Sisense's roadmap. This will make things much easier for my implementation. It would also be nice if it ran on a Linux platform (something else I hear is on the roadmap).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have worked with many other products including Birst, Jaspersoft, and Cognos and this is by far the best I have used.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using it in many departments. We use it to track platform feature adoption over time to give us an idea of what areas are partners are using and what areas require more messaging and focus. We also use it for attrition data analysis to bring together multiple data sources to identify trends and key indicators.

"Sisense: Great but not perfect"

What do you like best?

Sisense has great functionality. It's ability to easily manipulate data schemas, throw up elasticubes and generate reports. The API functionality is really useful, and the concept is really well thought out in terms of side features like CSV exports, widgets, APIs, and alerts

What do you dislike?

When elasticubes fail, some errors are impossible to really know what caused it. We had cases where cube builds would somehow trigger a "Server was unexpectedly shutdown during the build process". Or "Elasticube is having difficulty building". I wish there were measures to prevent entire machine crashes. For example, I wish there were ways Sisense would automatically kill builds that took up 100% RAM & CPU because then the entire service goes down

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are unifying our efforts of the Business teams with the information we are providing them. This has been hard for us in the past between teams in the US and EU. We will be embedding reports into our product in the future

"Very good product, excellent customer support."

What do you like best?

Sisense has been very easy to learn. Our Data and Analytics team started building dashboards and scorecards within 2-3 days. Great customer support. Can use data from many different sources and mash together.

What do you dislike?

Fairly young company, so maybe not as many bells and whistles as some of the other tools, but they listen to their customers and are always making improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They have a great trial period for using their tool. I'd recommend trying it out with a few different data sources and seeing how you like it. For a user, being able to interact with the data was a big plus.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating a truly global view of the company, in nearly all aspects of the business. Benefits include viewing our business as a global entity and then being able to drill-down into specific areas, business units, products, etc. all the way to a specific part for a specific customer. Executives can see everything that is happening and react accordingly. We've had nothing but positive feedback from our users using the Sisense tool.

"Very Intuitive - End to End BI Tool"

What do you like best?

Considering our Data sources Sisense is a great tool to combine data from multiple data sources including some REST API's. Development time for Dashboards is very Quick compared to other competitive tools. Speed and ease of combining data sources is great. It gives us almost near real time data for our field operations Analysis. Customer Service is great and is always willing to help in every way.

What do you dislike?

Its a bit of challenge to figure out if there is any issue with Joins or Many to Many Relationship Issues by looking at dashboards. Plugins are an issue sometimes with newer versions and might need updates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are currently utilizing Sisense to help with our day to day operations in field to track our Inventory and Equipment Alerts. We are in the beginning stages of Implementation and currently in Pilot. Having to use these reports helped the field to visually see what is happening without actually going and checking the equipment.

"Fast, Easy Setup and a Gentle Learning Curve"

What do you like best?

Everything about this product is easy. It took less than 60 minutes from the time I received the trial to the time I had a set of dashboards running--with almost no outside instruction. The ease of use is also clear every time we add a new user. Everything in the UI is where you expect it to be, very intuitive, so it cut out a lot of training time for us.

What do you dislike?

I think the dashboard sharing can be a little confusing for end users and the dashboard folder management could use an overhaul.

"SiSense- Great BI Reporting tool"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of various features given on SiSense in terms of visualizations, data marts. Also the approach to do any enhancement we want to have is very good.

I appreciate the active SiSense community.

Cheers to all SiSense customers and guys.

What do you dislike?

I don't have anything specifically, At times we face random issues accessing dashboards over which we are already in conversation with SiSense team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

More visualizations, Plugins

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We with digital marketing folks use dashboards numbers to measure our performance basis organic, purchased traffic and the probable reason of any loss. Dashboards helps product managers to conclude among different A/B tests and experiments. Also finance guys use to derive different sort of analysis.

"Beautiful results from the whole package"

What do you like best?

Once you are acclimated to the environment, spinning up data models and creating visualizations is very easy. You can make a professional-looking dashboard, or even a set of related dashboards, within a few hours. Visualizations are beautiful. Elasticubes are wonderful at bringing in a creating a relational data model out of disparate data sources. I often combine Excel docs, Access DBs and MySQL DBs into a singular data model and then quickly whip up a dashboard that combines all three. I also like that it's an all-in-one package, with the data modelling software, front-end editors, plus data security implementation and entitlement measures, etc.

What do you dislike?

Despite what is professed by their ads, some level of SQL and/or Javascript is needed to do anything beyond the most basic setups. For example, only inner joins are available in a data model; custom SQL coding is needed to create any other kind of join. Though an Elasticube can crunch millions of rows of data in a few minutes, the visualizations themselves can be very slow to load (via browser), especially when plotting more than a few hundred data points. The visualizations also leave much to be desired in the way of formatting options (knowledge of Javascript, css and angular.js is needed to do any custom formatting, such as making a font bigger).

However, if you're just setting up a few simple visualizations for your sales database for internal use, this product would be fantastic and you'd probably not end up coding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Sisense as an OEM product, taking the data our company collects data and creating interactive, branded dashboards for our clients to browse. The wonderful thing about Sisense is it provided a one-stop-shop for everything we needed. As a full-stack BI tool, it has the backend data modelling software, data connectors, front-end visualization and dashboard editor, data security measures, automated email notification process, the ability to white-label the product...I could go on and on. But don't be fooled--you will likely end up coding.

"Sisense is a End to End Analytics Tool"

What do you like best?

It has integration with a lot of applications enabling us to import data from almost any source into Sisense and work with it easily. I also like their features in Visualisation like TABBER that enables us to create tabs and show graphs in dashboards so that dashboards don't look clunky with too much graphs and data to digest. I also love the feature of Custom SQL in the backend that allows us to create custom tables based on the existing tables in the cube. They also have cool feature that makes HISTOGRAMS much simpler to create without you having write codes to create bins. Sisense also lets you import huge data sets into and work much faster with it when compared to tools like Tableau.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I really dislike but I feel not having options to create filters for separate widgets on the dashboard is very annoying at time because not very time we use data from same table on all visualisations inside a dashboard. If we can create filters separately for each widget in a dashboard, it will help knowledge users better in drill downs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are planning to get an end to end BI Tool for your company, please consider Sisense. They are really good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Sisense to enable Sales, Marketing and Customer Success team increase their throughput with live dashboards. We show KPIs for each of these teams in dashboards to make decision making real-time data driven.

"BI Tool for today's market"

What do you like best?

Sisense is very easy to setup and use, if you are familiar with warehouse, star schema, analysis cube concepts and basic BI concepts, this tool, installation, development and usage is pretty much self explanatory, if you are not aware of these concepts, you have account manager, technical and support staff, and online documentation available to easily pick concepts and topics

What do you dislike?

Most BI tools are either dependent on data analysis on relational database (warehouse) others (like Sisense) work best with its own data layer (Elasticube), its a matter of ROLAP vs MOLAP, I think its about time some tool, hopefully Sisense takes a stab at HOLAP (Hybrid) approach so data-to-intelligence/analysis time is shortened, for some larger datasets, elasticube preparation can take some time, also IMHO, this will help address some of very complex "query path" issues

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not that you will need it a whole lot, but in case you need support Sisense team will go out of their way to provide help as soon as possible, if its a feature enhancement for your installation, they might even bring that feature in core product and will keep you updated on its development stage and release date

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For now we are looking at trends and creating velocity and forecasts dashboards,.

Reports and widgets on dashboards provides useful metrics to every level of Business Analyst throughout the organization, with few clicks you can view dashboard for an individual to entire company, you can also create pulse reports, to get this data delivered to you on schedule or event

"Sisense Makes Data Warehouse Free BI Easy"

What do you like best?

The Elasticube data prep layer makes it very easy to denormalize data from our operation data stores without the overhead of a legacy datawarehouse and ETL layer.

What do you dislike?

There is not great support for source control, modern SDLC, and DevOps automation. It sounds like this is coming soon, and it's a small price to pay for all the other things Sisense takes care of for you (easy data prep, slick and interactive dashboards with a point-and-click editor, caching and acceleration of slow data sources, etc.).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Sisense to someone looking to implement a dashboarding tool for on top of a mix of traditional and cloud/web based data sources (RDMBS, Google AdWords, etc.).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Sisense both internally and externally to provide BI dashboards and reporting to our stakeholders and clients. Sisense has resulted in drastically increased transparency and access to data across our company and client base - everyone is now operating with the same set of facts. We were able to achieve this with minimal staffing on the project (we support hundreds of users with 1 full time analyst).

"A great BI tool"

What do you like best?

Incredible customer support and a rich user community with lots of on-line resources.

What do you dislike?

Not yet web-based multi-user eCube management (coming soon), not quite as rich of a dashboard visualization capability and fine-control as Tableau (but improving), some limitations on Excel file import format require pre-import formatting (improvements coming I hear).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good BI is difficult, make sure to select a BI platform with excellent customer and professional services -- you'll likely need it no matter what platform you select.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to pull and visualize business data and drill down into finding root causes for certain effects. This has allowed us to more quickly make better decisions, discover impacts of any business changes, and better understand/uncover drivers. As a direct result, we have improved manufacturing velocity and quality while also improving planning and inventory management.

"Awesome BI Tool"

What do you like best?

Sisense is intuitive, easy to develop in and use. Sisense helps our BI team save lots of time when creating beautiful dashboards that are appropriate for our audiences. Data source management is simple and easy to use yet allows for customization. Dashboards are fast, easy to navigate and very aesthetically pleasing. The Sisense team is constantly updating the tool with extremely useful features.

What do you dislike?

Any issues that we've had, which have been small and not impactful, have been speedily addressed by the Sisense team. I have nothing to report as a "dislike".

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Sisense.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a federally qualified health center and our business needs range from clinical and patient data to support clinical activities facilitating patient experience and quality of care as well as supporting special programs and the revenue cycle.

"A great experience with SiSense product and support"

What do you like best?

I like the engagement of the on boarding team and the customer success team. The features and the plugins are fantastic and although it is our first months I feel confident that we would be able to fulfill our expectations.

What do you dislike?

The plugins are an issue especially when a new version has been released. It could help if the plugins functionality would become part of the platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Sisense to others. It is best that one gets a proof of concept with the help of the Sisense Support team to get a good feel of whether it meets all your requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to get an insight of unemployment though the building of EOM snap-shots of unemployment where data is constantly changing along the months/years and we can now use in the historical data to get an overall insights along the years.

"Infinite Capabilities"

What do you like best?

Whenever someone asks "is that possible with Sisense"? The answer is almost certainly yes, we just have to figure out how to make it happen. We can pull in data from various sources and create links that tie them to together for the results we need to see. The capabilities are vast!

What do you dislike?

Our team is working on more complex issues that cannot always be easily handled by the Sisense Support staff. Their professional engineers are very helpful when available, though!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to create solutions and dashboards and quickly answer questions that used to require our team endless amounts of time and energy. The time-saving benefits of the dashboards and data syncing are huge!

"The flexibility of custom software with the power of scale."

What do you like best?

Sisense has allowed us to deploy complex business logic across our entire organizations. Its a self-refreshing custom data model that is visually displayed and available for exploration by the end user.

Perhaps all BI solutions could receive the same accolades -- but Sisense supports the solution with the most knowledgeable and responsive customer support I've encountered, and layers the platform onto their own high powered data warehouse eliminating the need for expensive and cumbersome third party partners.

On top of all that, its the hundreds of minor details of the platform - clearly focused on a balance of user experience and powerful tools - that set Sisense apart.

I'm a true believer.

What do you dislike?

With such complex visualizations and such a fast pace of feature development, small glitches do happen from time to time. Generally a browser refresh takes care of the problem, but a few persistent issues have occurred for us. Luckily the Sisense Support team is both knowledgable and honest - 9 times at of 10, we that we contact support we discover we were doing something wrong, and that 1 out of 10 that they suspect the software has an issue they admit it and follow up with a fix quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're transforming the way we do business by analyzing and testing data models at a pace that was impossible before, and then we're giving the entire organization access not only to the results but to the underlying data to prove or disprove the results. It is democratization of data at its best.

"Sisense BI - an early IT Analyst's Perspective/Review"

What do you like best?

Sisense Business Intelligence was our company's go to choice for internal analytics as well as embedded analytics for customer access. The web based architecture is easy to edit/rebrand without much coding experience. The Elasticube is easy to import data from many sources and keep as a SSOT (single source of truth) for data schemas.

What do you dislike?

Dashboard designers have the power to design advanced level formulas and calculations that can be over bearing. Data transformation is limited and this needs to be done in the DB level / cube level.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Customer visibility - Access high level dashboards and reports from live data. Greater insight into merchandise, inventory, shipping, etc.

2. Internal users - greater insight into data - Warehouse, inventory, reports, raw data

3. Can answer many questions on their own from the dashboards- even creates questions with answers into items never explored

"Ease of use and implementation"

What do you like best?

Ease of use for end users and for designers to develop, ease of implementation and managing the cloud data. However, formatting the dashboards can be a bit tricky sometimes. But there's good customer service to help you troubleshoot when you need.

What do you dislike?

"A Sisense beginner"

What do you like best?

Sisense is more streamlined than other tools we performed proof of concepts on. The core customer support and trainers have been very friendly and supportive.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes support is unclear in their instructions and expects a more advanced knowledge of how to integrate their product into our system when we have never integrated a BI tool before.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have multiple data sources and sets that need managed and combined for reporting. Sisense has helped with quick and accurate reporting. Another benefit is that Sisense has helped us find which data sets are accurate and which need to be fixed.

"Sisense is truly the next generation of BI tools"

What do you like best?

Sisense has given us the ability to grow and scale our business 10x without the need for additional license add-ons or costs. We have successfully merged 17 different data sources into a single source of truth that provides unparalleled insights into our business. It's allow us to snapshot critical data that shows us the life cycle of a customer and make intelligent predictions that drive change to our business model.

Our BI Portal gives direct access and visibility into real-time performance metrics for coaching and performance improvement.

What do you dislike?

Missing some desired visualizations

IOS app needs work

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lots of BI vendors can promise you the world, instead of listening to a talk-track, download the Sisense client and connect your data sources and see your yourself. There is a lot to be said about a tool that will do everything you need even during the demo stages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sisense is being used in our organization to:

•Get better insight into the data we already have

•Automate time consuming and labor intensive reports

•Eliminate error prone reporting, multiple spreadsheets, no audit trails etc…

•Create a centralized data warehouse and portal for all levels of the company.

•More time in analysis state than data collection

•Clear business driven BI Dashboards to allow executive level management to make clear

educated decisions.

"Implementing Sisense"

What do you like best?

We are in the middle of transitioning from Xcelsius and Tableau dashboarding platforms to Sisense. The Sisense employees are always very responsive and knowledgeable about the product and how to help us through the implementation. We plan to complete the implementation by the end of the year. I will do a more detailed review in a few months!

What do you dislike?

Formatting for a table in our dashboard took a lot more time than expected. It's not as easy as formatting a table in Excel! It required knowledge of java script and took our Sisense trainer a while to complete. We will have to replicate this process for future tables in our dashboards.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We will be using Sisense to share our performance with our customers as well as for them to do what if analysis.

"An powerful, flexible BI tool using innovative ideas and technology "

What do you like best?

What do you dislike?

ElasticCube is on a Windows server which has made it a but difficult to manage and maintain

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sisense are definitely innovators in the BI space, they are continually bringing out new ways to help display insights clearly to different types of audiences. This combined with their excellent customer support has helped us build many dashboards and win further projects with new clients.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are cutting out the middle man by reducing the amount of time spent on reporting and basic analytics, instead giving power to consultants and business users. We have also significantly reduced reliance on Excel spreadsheets

"Using Sisense to Understand the Employee Experience"

What do you like best?

I love being able to layer different types of data together. On top of that, being able to drill down by different areas of the company really help us to see the full picture and tell a great story to a leadership team.

What do you dislike?

My background is not in big data, SQL etc, so there has been a learning curve to overcome, but I'm glad that I can attend events such as Sisense Masters Training Day to work on my skills.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Work on open-ended text analysis. I'd love to see a word cloud that has filtering and correlation capabilities.

"Mac Shop + In the Cloud = Daily Headaches"

What do you like best?

Dashboards are easy to understand when creating. Some automation is available

What do you dislike?

Logging in through RDP, Performance, embedding with safari, having the back end separate from the web app, having to build a EC every time a change is made, not having insight to what dashboards belong to who, not having insight to dashboards but the ones you create.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do a POC before signing on. Test all the limits of the product that you can. Don't focus on one project think of future projects that you are considering. We spent all of our implementation on one report and building it out only to find that Sisense did not work when embedded in Safari plus other headaches along the way. We pivoted to something different and performance took a huge hit.

"Powerful tool for BI integration"

What do you like best?

Standard BI dashboarding features. Standouts for us are the API connectivity and data modeling options. The extensibility of the platform gives us some options and there is an existing community that offers some additional functionality without needing to DIY.

What do you dislike?

UI requires technical work to be truly presentable. There are a few snags and gotchas, the technology is clearly still under development, which is a minus from a polish level, but does give us more opportunities for feedback.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you set goals for your onboarding process that will ensure you get the support you need. Don't be afraid to use the addons offered, particularly by sisense itself, but from the community as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SiSense allows the complex data housed in our application to become more accessible to a wider audience and easier to parse at a glance for existing users. We have yet to go live with the integration, but there is already significant excitement among our client base to start using the dashboards.

"Powerful BI Solution"

What do you like best?

Their training courses are solid. I have beginner level experience in SQL and databases yet, I am able to create elasticubes and dashboards because of the provided training. The ability to pull in Google Sheets and Excel documents into the elasticubes has also proven very valuable for creating SEO dashboards.

What do you dislike?

There is room for improvement on their REST connector. Their support team tried to help but, there were limitations preventing Sisense from connecting a popular rank tracking tool. They did mention addressing it in a future release. Looking forward to that change.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Sisense internally to visualize our ERP and SEO data.

"Sisense - the "easy" button for embedded analytics"

What do you like best?

As the title might suggest, Sisense does all the heavy lifting when it comes to embedding analytics. Whether you want to embed dashboards as a whole or create dashboards on the fly, with Sisense you focus on solving business, not technical problems.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike but if I had to pick on one area it would be documentation, specifically in regards to dataset/dashboard promotion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Sisense we hope to provide our customers with the tools they can use to answer their own questions.

"Simple to Use, Excellent data for all sorts of groups"

What do you like best?

Simplicity. It is very easy to use. There is plenty of documentation to get your started. Able to provide data to all levels of employees that suits their needs. Ability to quickly spin up a report for nearly any purpose or group of people. I love the ability to be able to connect multiple sources of data that would normally not be able to accomplish without a dbms.

What do you dislike?

The Elasticube has some issues. If you have a lot of data tables(20+), unless you create a layout outside of cube to placement of tables, the cube can get very complex to review. I wish you could color the background to indicate what types of data were in that area. The weird zoom in and zoom out when you add a new table is an annoyance.

Dashboards load low when using a Virtual Machine. Unsure if this is an Us problem or a Sisense problem.

Dashboards don't understand Timestamps, Day of week order, month order, weekdays, other types of day/time

Recommendations to others considering the product

One stop shop for all your reporting needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have stopped using excel to report agent level metrics. Originally only supervisors and management had access to agent metrics. Now all agents can view their stats and the performance of their teams. We are able to provide more data and larger date ranges of data, whereas this would have been limited in Excel and more so with outlook (max 12 MB file size). The benefits are not just at the agent level, but also the financial level.

"Great BI and Fantastic Customer Service"

What do you like best?

Sisense is extremely robust and flexible, while remaining intuitive. And when I can't figure something out, Customer Service is able to save the day.

What do you dislike?

My only real complaint is the price, though Sisense really is comparable to other BI tools. Much of what we need is raw data which can be accomplished with Sisense, but where Sisense really shines is aggregates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sisense is far better at aggregates than raw data, though it can do both.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Beyond just reporting, I have sever users that pull use it as an operational tool. For example, accountants use it to track down identifying numbers when customers won't use the actual invoice number.

"Amazing"

What do you like best?

It's full stack BI in one product (and does it the best - also reviewed inferior Birst and Qlik)

Fast, easy to use, feature-rich

Automatically created REST API on any data brought into the backend of Sisense

Dashboards and reports are all interactive and embeddable

Clean sleek design and report appearance

Built in D3 and fully customizable via javascript

What do you dislike?

They're partially based in Israel, so some of the support techs don't speak English as their first language. (still not as bad as other foreign support personnel)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Full stack BI (ETL, DW, and reporting in one) is a new concept in the BI field. Birst, Qlik, Sisense, and Cloud9 are the only products I know of that accomplish this in some way. We reviewed all and POC tested Birst, Qlik and Sisense. Sisense absolutely ran circles around the competition in terms of their capabilities, features, speed and ease of use. For us reviewers, the choice was a no contest.

"Excellent full stack solution"

What do you like best?

One of the things I like best about SiSense is how its out of the box ease of use has the ability to evolve into a much more advanced analytics tool with continued use. Plugins, custom javascript, upgrades, and new features ensure that I'm always improving the analytics I can do with the tool. Also the ability to send regular email reports, download dashboards as pdfs, and quickly push changes to the users lets us answer business questions on demand in a way we never could before.

What do you dislike?

The thing i like least about SiSense is the Elasticube build process. As our data models have expanded we've found it difficult to manage the build times of our larger cubes which can take several hours to build. For instance, we cannot build changes to the cube while one of the regularly scheduled builds is occurring and the 'stop build' functionality has never been very responsive. It is my understanding that the next version will completely redesign the build process so I'm looking forward to seeing the new version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When evaluating BI software don't worry about how pretty the dashboards can be. While the flashy widgets and beautiful charts of Tableau and Domo have an initial appeal you'll quickly find that the most important information you can show the end users is KPIs and pviot tables supported by some graphs. Ease of use, the ability to transform data, and quickly publish dashboards to users is much more important in the long run. This is the reason we stopped using Tableau and are strictly using SiSense now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the best aspects of SiSense is how easily it blends your different data sets. We now easily have different SQL databases, Excel files, CSVs, Google Docs, Salesforce, our ERP and CRM all integrated for reporting. This has allowed us to do profitability analysis across all of our data sets across the different business units which track their data differently. We have also managed to give our sales team, technicians, and managers a single easy to use portal to access all of their relevant data rather than having to go into multiple systems.

"Solid Product with Low Tech Bar"

What do you like best?

Price was reasonable, less technological expertise needed than for other vendors. Good out-of-the-box functionality and documentation. Community and company are extremely responsive regarding additional features and support. The speed of the application and the usefulness of the analytics are fantastic.

What do you dislike?

Limited visualizations can be painful, and the community is not as large or robust as other vendors

Recommendations to others considering the product

Probably the best out-of-the-box solution that we evaluated for analytics and intelligence. Easy to use, but with room to grow with technical capabilities (JS, Python, R, REST APIs). Great data conglomeration and accessibility.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lack of visibility and low technical competence results in poor performance. Unit sales, shipment, and market analytics are easy to perform deep-dives into. No benefits yet as we are in the middle of implementation.

ease of setup, elasticube speed, ability to scale, range of data sources, elegance of visual designs, export and data sharing capabilities, mobile and tablet friendly, secure, stable, easily integrated.

What do you dislike?

There are honestly not things about the platform that are actively irritating, or come to mind as things that I dislike. There are some specialized visualizations that I would like to see added, and continued NLP and AI enhancements, but no active dislikes.

"Anyone can learn how to use it!"

What do you like best?

The tool is very simple yet flexible. Anyone with moderate SQL experience will be just fine during the data modeling. The support service is what did it though. Support is one of their best attributes.

There could be more widgets and plugins but as the customer base builds so too will the library of add ons.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When you have massive amounts of time sensitive data it can be hard to find an in house solution to keeping it in order and making it useable. Sisense can connect to all of our sources so I no longer need to spend days for a simple report or analysis.

"Great data visualization tool, but some connectors are not quite ready"

What do you like best?

1. Good UI design

2. Nice looking and intuitive dashboards

3. The service team is supportive and willing to help

What do you dislike?

1. It's challenging to figure out the real cause when the elastic cube build failed, and the building process is time-consuming

2. It took so long to get some of the out of box connectors work, e.g. Facebook, YouTube, etc.

3. The tech support team seems to have limited experience in the connectors.
