Pros

  • Ease of Use
  • Customer Service
  • Visualization
  • Customizability - SQL/CSS, iFRAME/JS

Cons

  • 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.

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.

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.

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 worked out of the box, there was a lot of setup with the other 3. Out of the 3 others Board's was the only one that connected to Salesforce without a problem like Sisense. Sisense pricing destroyed the other 3 as well.

Collaboration and Sharing

Sisense8.6
Based on 40 answers
Sharing is done in one click. The sharer can set who can modify, who can read and even transfer ownership of the dashboard. It is easy to share a dashboard and to continue to work on newer versions.

The person who get access to dashboards have multiple ways to interact with it:
- drill anywhere
- click to select
- activate/deactivate KPIs in visualization
- activate/deactivate/modify filters

The owner of the dashboard can set up what a viewer can and can't do with a shared dashboard.

Data Integration

Sisense8.9
Based on 40 answers
Sisense has been able to connect to every data source that I needed it to connect to. This includes SQL Server, CSVs, Excel, Oracle, and ODBC. Different data sources can easily be accessed within one elasticube.
On the downside, one dashboard can only talk to one Elasticube. This requires careful planning upfront on your building of the cubes.

Return on Investment

  • 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
