Datorama

Datorama is a well balanced data visualization or business intelligence tool. If your organization has the budget and is just establishing such a tool then I would suggest this over others in the marketplace especially if the analyst isn't a senior as they have an excellent support team. Datorama should be able to meet the needs of most companies as their visualizations can be used out of the box or customized with css/html/js code. Additionally, if a data stream connector is not readily available then there are options to create a custom stream

Sisense

I believe Sisense is perfectly suited for any organization of any size that have access to the proper resources, as the tool is very expensive. The data connectors come in all shapes and sizes out of the box, which allows a great deal of data control within the ElastiCubes. Additionally, while the platform only runs on Windows platforms, the web application can be accessed on any client: mobile, Apple, Windows, etc. This allows a much more flexible user experience, resulting in data and dashboards reaching further than any other tool.

Pros

Datorama

  • Data Visualization: Data can easily be viewed in the Dashboard, where you can pull quick insights & easily understand them.
  • Report Customization: The platform allows for easy customization of reports, with a variety of metrics that can be pulled from any data source/ad server.
  • Reporting Templates: Going along with the above, you can also save custom reports as templates to use in the future.

Cons

Datorama

  • The dashboards could use more interactivity, especially for lower-level users. Simple filters can be added to dashboards, but still lag behind the abilities of other BI tools.
  • The filtering logic for data within the dashboards could be more robust. We've run into use cases where it's difficult to include or exclude specific data when needed.
Trevor Patch | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sisense

  • The usability of the application on mobile devices needs some improvement, especially navigation and filtering.
  • Dashboards that are created by multiple users can be a bit of a hassle to share by Admins.
  • If you need to embed dashboards into your website, you are require to buy a license separate from the user and platform license. This is a norm on most BI visualization tools, but Sisense can seem a bit on the high side, cost-wide.

I think the business and myself as a user has come to rely on SiSense as a dashboarding and quick ad-hoc reporting tool. I am hoping to integrate SiSense dashboards into more parts of the business in the future. We have reduced our report turn-around time for the most part from hours/days to minutes and in some cases almost the speed of thought. Reports are also easier on the eye and more easily distributed.I would also like to say that the support and professionalism from the SiSense team has been excellent.

New V5 is ground floor of an exciting collection of possibilities. Weekly Sisense developers come up with new functionality that they share with us in their forums. The move to HTML5 has been pleasing in that widgets auto size themselves into appropriate forms in the board but everyone of them can be popped out to full page size to be looked at in more detail

There are very few situations when there is unexpected downtime. Mostly during development, new dashboard implementation and during upgrades. other then that there were very few crashes.

SiSense is usually performing better then other solutions even if going for complex reports/dashboards(of course within reasonable frames). I haven't noticed any bad influence on other systems, usually if something happens it stays within SiSense.

SiSense's support ninjas are very knowledgeable and are exceptionally responsive. So far, all of the issues we ran into were resolved within minimum time. My sense of dealing with the support staff at SiSense is that they are very focused on not just answering your immediate question, but also to delve into the cause of the matter.

Easy and free training that allowed us quickly understand basics in SiSense and start using them. More advanced features requires some browsing through SiSense forums, but there is always support to help, and SiSense support is one of the best whith which I worked so far.

Alternatives Considered

Datorama

I have had the chance to use Tableau and Datorama over the last 4 years. I think that Datorama is much more user friendly and easier to create visualizations compared to Tableau. I also think it is easier to share these dashboards in Datorama compared to the options that Tableau offers.
Austin Moore | TrustRadius Reviewer

1) Easy to use, really, there is nothing too much to say. The set up is easy and not confusing. You can use it internally or externally.
2) Customer Service, having spoken to various product reps from similar industry. Sisense rep provides you with the best support to get started, and it is really appreciated.

Return on Investment

Datorama

  • Reduced reporting time for media team members
  • Streamlined cadenced reporting
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sisense

  • Report development time is reduced from 2~3 days to 2~3 hours.
  • Report querying time is improved from 0.5~10 mins to 2~30 seconds.
  • A 2-staff team delivers 10 times the BI output that we did on the old system.
  • We were able to deliver BI and data analysis for all business functions instead of a very limited group of users
