SiSENSE as web service platform.
On a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to recommend SiSense if asked by a colleague? Are there any specific scenarios where it is well suited or where it is less appropriate?
- From my point of view it is perfect tool for any company which just starts with its first BI solution and are limited with money. Also great for companies which do not want to have a time consuming project to deploy. It depends on how large your data sources are, but probably you wont need to invest in any new hardware.
Describe how SiSense is being used by your organization? Is it being used by a department or across the whole organization? What business problems does it address?
- I was using SiSense PRISM as platform supporting our own www service. Our service provided a complex info about public contracts around Poland and we used PRISM as BI platform to generate Dashboards. Those Dashboards were used by our costumers to analyze situation on public contracts market and support them in decision to start with a given contract. Overall I see PRISM as a great tool, which requires not so much IT knowledge to operate and is not time consuming in terms of deployment and report or dashboard preparation. It is also very low on Hardware resources consumption.
