KNIME Analytics Platform

If you have a team of engineers or data scientists who do not like to code, KNIME can be a good platform to build quick and dirty pipelines. However if you are moving away from R&D to deployment, KNIME lacks the scalability compared to Python or R itself. When deploying, you can choose to output json or use their native front end from KNIME Server, but KNIME Server is not free.

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

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • KNIME works better than most tools for ETL functions.
  • Easy to track the different steps
  • Easy to isolate and fix specific workflow steps.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sisense

  • Customization - lots of supported and community plugins available. Users can also adjust the look and feel through JavaScript.
  • Innovation - Sisense is continuing to push the envelope by developing new features through Sisense Labs.
  • Customer support - the commitment to excellent customer service and ensuring organizations get the most out of their investment.

Cons

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • Visualization can be improved further though it has been better with new versions, with a lot of scope available. However, connectivity to Tableau somehow overcomes this. Also, skilled resources are difficult to find for KNIME, due to other solutions having better penetration.
  • Knowledge of R/Python is required to fully use the statistical analysis (rather than just data mining). Also, memory usage is a problematic issue sometimes.
  • Not enough domain usage experience can be shared between KNIME users as well.
Rohit Narang | 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

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.

Since it is relatively new, there has not developed a vast previously asked/frequently asked questions library that comes up when you google an issue you come across with. This will happen only in time, and as the community grows. Because of the same reason, the community is not big. Consequently, it is possible not to receive good, fast responses to asked questions in community hubs and forums.

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

KNIME Analytics Platform

KNIME is a lower price point and has strong cross platform capabilities. Other platforms are locked to a specific operating system and cost in some cases substantially more, making them less good choices for smaller businesses that still need basic data unification. The fact that KNIME is OS-independent is a big positive.
Christopher Penn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sisense

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

KNIME Analytics Platform

  • Lowest TCO compared to other tools
  • Accelerates analysis - the analysts can dedicate more time to analysis itself, not to data preparation
Viktor Mulac | 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
