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

Pros

Sisense

  • 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

Sisense

  • Being so powerful, the ElastiCube must be carefully built especially with larger data sets - too many connections or the wrong ones between tables can lead to queries that eat up all system resources, requiring a reboot and disrupting the production environment.
  • Sisense is very customizable and flexible, but sometimes it is surprising that some simpler features are not available; for example, you cannot change up or control your font size/color or other presentation elements at all without scripting.
  • Emailing dashboards is very limited, particularly with larger widgets (like pivot tables). Furthermore the email scheduling doesn't allow you to choose a specific schedule or certain recipients.

I absolutely love this product. However, they are moving to a new version that is almost a total redesign of the product. It remains to be seen how much work will be involved to transition

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

Sisense

We evaluated each software and chose 4 candidates to build a proof-of-concept for the most complicated and challenging reporting scenario at our company with real data and business requirement.
We selected SiSense because its strengths and abilities (fast-to-deliver, small investment, big-data capability) best solve our problems and meet our business needs.

Return on Investment

Sisense

  • 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.
