Pros

  • In particular, the ability to easily model data within the Sisense ElastiCube, re-build the data and see the changes reflected within our dashboards is great.
  • SiSense's ability to make short work of large data sets to answer questions is impressive.
  • Sisense allows you to easily pull data from multiple sources. If you have data, it can use it.
  • The filtering and formula capabilities within Sisense are strong.

Cons

  • Would like to see conditional alert feature - ie if a value
  • Manual builds of the Elasticube (back end) can sometimes take a long time, for unknown reasons
  • Better mobile integration/UX
  • Can't print to PDF (yet)

Usability

Sisense7.3
Based on 4 answers
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

Reliability and Availability

Based on 1 answer
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.

Performance

Based on 1 answer
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.

Support

Based on 5 answers
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

In-Person Training

Sisense7.3
Based on 1 answer
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.

Online Training

Based on 1 answer
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.

Implementation

Sisense7.1
Based on 3 answers
Remember to migrate the plugins. The documentation however is pretty straight forward.

Breadth of Deployment

We currently have 50 users using Sisense. These users are spread across all departments in the corporate office. It is also being used by general managers and franchise owners across 40 offices around the world.

Alternatives Considered

Sisense can't compare to any tool for the ease of user, intuitive interface and "time to data". I gave been working with both large enterprise and small SMB's using Sisense, and it is amazing to see how small companies quickly learn how to use it and how practical and efficient they can be.
The global productivity is also amazing: with only a few clicks, anyone can design a useful dashboard, that anyone will enjoy using.

Collaboration and Sharing

Data Integration

Scalability

Sisense8.2
Based on 1 answer
Product is quite easily scalable. The whole installation can be easily moved to stronger machine if needed.

Return on Investment

  • We are in the early stages of implementation, but there has been a positive impact in the visibility to data in real time. We are operating with a four hour refresh so the sales managers get to see data as it happens during the day.
  • The project has allowed us to look at our ERP data in a different way. It has made a positive impact in the way we are standardizing and cleaning up the source data to make it more accurate for our end users.
