GoodData

GoodData is appropriate for any organizations struggling with bridging gaps between multiple disparate data sources. Using GoodData provides those organizations all the tools necessary to build value added insights for both internal and external customers. It would be less appropriate for those wanting to build highly customizable reports features as there's not a lot of freedom in design.

Sisense is excellent for data modeling through ElastiCubes. It's easy to visualize the joins between objects, preview data, and identify data types.

Pros

  • Excellent charts and drill down analysis. Everything on one page.
  • Excellent integration with other databases and software.
  • Great support and mobile app availability. All these features makes this software very useful.

Sisense

  • The biggest pro I found with Sisense is that you do not need a DBA in order to manage the system. This makes the learning curve really easy, which helps lots when thinking of implementation across a whole organization. This reflects well for the tool, since it is powerful, but easy to use.
  • ALL-IN-ONE! Sisense answered all of my customers and our company's requirements, to include data modelling and complex calculations.
  • Sisense is as accurate as your data, and best of all, it is real time. After using other visualization tools, I learned that when using multiple sources, errors occur. Sisense prevents this risk by allowing all of the resources to be managed at their engine, maintains connections, and as a developer, the EliastiCube allows you to source large volumes of data with an easy click.

Cons

GoodData

  • To make any adjustments to the data flowing into the tool you need expert help.
  • The tool is pricy. Just like other BI tools, this tool also proves expensive.
  • It is difficult to use. It requires extensive training and support.

  • While loading elasticube sometimes it would display error or entire elasticube may not load properly.. Some bug fixes and refreshing solves the issue
  • Predictive pattern for the graphs could be a great add on feature

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.

Each graph/report is defined on the dashboard, which makes it easier to understand what you're analyzing. Another simple example - we changed the standard metric of Region by User to our Region by Account in less than 10 minutes

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.

This team is one of the few companies where I can literally Skype them for help and they respond immediately. Most don't realize how rare that actually is in the industry. Expanding their presence to the eastern time zone of the United States has made them more accessible as a result

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.

Many examples, videos and scenarios which you try on your own right away. This combined with in-person training gives you enough to utilize most of SiSense's power.

Alternatives Considered

GoodData

Logical data modelling and XAE (MAQL) are reasons why I like using GoodData for projects where I need to connect small chunks of data from multiple sources and enable holistic analysis across the whole company quickly for everyone. With PowerBI or Qlik Sense you need 5 times more people and resources just to get things running. Looker is expensive, Google Analytics Premium is expensive and ill-suited for anything else other than e-commerce. Tableau doesn't support collaboration and report distribution properly.

Sisense can crunch loads more data and has consistently better performance than other modern BI tools; It successfully retains the best of the Cube world and also provides the power of modern in-chip visualization engine.

Return on Investment

GoodData

  • The promise of next-generation BI tools it to be able to synthesize many different data sets quickly and without the traditional weight of the more legacy systems. GoodData shows this capability and is well worth the investment you make as business decisions become data-informed and driven.
  • Even with implementation and professional services - there are virtually no other solutions in the marketplace with the speed, power, stability and business utility of GoodData. Provided you clearly understand that this is not a lightweight tool - you will be satisfied.
  • In a prior role, the powered-by solution allowed us to deliver dashboards and reporting to our customers in a few short months, solving a business challenge that had stymied our development team for several years.

  • I don't have specific numbers back from the customer where we deployed the product. However, I know that they used it daily to track their product shipments and machine efficiencies. I would say it did the job we deployed it to do and did it effectively.
