    • Well suited for my big data related project or a static data set analysis especially for uploading huge dataset to the cluster.
    • But had some issues with connecting IoT real-time data and feeding to Power BI. It might be my understanding please take it as a mere comment rather than a suggestion.

    Sisense for Cloud Data Teams is suited so well for our project that works with lots of data and needs some ways to share data internally or externally with our clients. It's very easy to pull out the data from the sense in best and in a suitable format and moreover a huge number of options are available there to represent the data. All features of this Sisense for cloud data teams software can be taken advantage of if you have a team who are well versed in data analytics, data management, and programming.

    Pros

    IBM

    Sisense Ltd

    • Rapid deployment of polished T-SQL-based data visualization charts and dashboards. Periscope supports a variety of database technologies, and allows users to write custom queries to display data.
    • Included caching to reduce server load.
    • Outstanding customer service/support, with expert advice as needed.
    • Constant updates and new features.
    • Built-in SQL formatters take the pain out of manipulating date/time objects.

    Cons

    IBM

    • Easier pricing and plug-and-play like you see with AWS and Azure, it would be nice from a budgeting and billing standpoint, as well as better support for the administration.
    • Bundling of the Cloud Object Storage should be included with the Analytics Engine.
    • The inability to add your own Hadoop stack components has made some transfers a little more complex.

    Sisense Ltd

    • Include more appropriate updates in their monthly newsletter as opposed to the general overview that doesn't always have the most pertinent information at the forefront.
    • There are bugs at times when certain dashboards are down, though not in an overwhelming way.
    • If you do not tag something it shows up in multiple views and may be accessible to people that it should not be, though that is a user error it may make sense to prompt for a tag and security setting.

        My company has had Periscope for various use cases in the past and I think that this program opens up complex data reports to non-technical people in a really accessible way (even though the learning curve is a big one). We are now integrating Sisense for Cloud Data Teams at a larger level both for internal data exploration and for customer facing dashboards and reports.

Data flow can be controlled easily which makes a supportable tool for ETL users. Version control support is present so multiple versions can be controlled into Git repository. Integration with other tool is possible.

        Alternatives Considered

        IBM

        We initially wanted to go with Google BigQuery, mainly for the name recognition. However, the pricing and support structure led us to seek alternatives, which pointed us to IBM. Apache Spark was also in the running, but here IBM's domination in the industry made the choice a no-brainer. As previously stated, the support received was not quite what we expected, but was adequate.

        Google Analytics works well but it does not have all of the bells and whistles that Periscope Data offers. Google Analytics is best used in a Google environment but if you are using other tools and programs outside of the Google universe, then Periscope Data is a much better option.
