Well suited:
  • Historical Analysis.
  • Tracking pools of products across an organization.
  • Real-time data analysis.
  • Prediction.
Less Appropriate:
  • Printing a PDF.
  • Simple report regurgitation (it has so much more power that would not be utilized if you were just using it for this).

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

Pros

Qlik Sense

  • User Interface - Easy to navigate and play across the dashboard, its charts and objects are like floating things like a bubble which is well suited for an official purpose
  • Connect Different Data Sources - with the help of various connectors QlikSense connects Database like Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc
  • Security - It provides security in application level as well as data level

  • 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

Qlik Sense

  • Licensing was expensive compared to other market players
  • Qlik Sense plays a lot around memory management. An average user, unless they understand the data modeling, cannot optimise Qlik Sense usage properly which could lead to poor implementation. Qlik Sense should offer training in this space.

Sisense

  • Some functionality is missing as built-in functionality, and can only be added by using Javascript, which requires technical knowledge of JS from the dashboard designer to implement. So although almost anything is possible to implement, some things which should be basic require high-level skills.
  • Viewers of dashboards have very limited customization options, almost any customization requires the dashboards designer to implement.
  • Particularly, viewers are unable to select conditional formatting, rename fields, change the order of items, etc.

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.

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.

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

Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense uses the same ETL platform as Qlikview, allows to publish data to cloud. The process of publishing is easy. Cloud (file storage on the cloud, file upload etc) interface is simple for developer.

We evaluated SiSense against several other players having SSRS and custom reporting (ASP + third party controls). SiSense stood up out of the crowd in how economical it is to get a license and we later found out the product support team is great. None of the solutions other than the costly PowerBI offered much self-service BI, and none offered a fast in-memory intermediate data store

  • 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
