We had issues with data from several sources - Salesforce, Google Analytics, and MS SQL Server. Sisense has allowed us to find the truth in our data.,Connects to all data sources. Stylish dashboards. Inbedability.,I believe an add-on marketplace for supported add-ons would be nice Sometimes tech support doesn't realize the users are new to this. More widget download options.,10,BOARD, Information Builders WebFOCUS and SAP Analytics Cloud,10,10,Microsoft SQL Server, JIRA Software, Atlassian ConfluenceSisense is a reliable way of displaying dataWe made the decision to try out several dashboard type data services with Sisense being one of them a few years ago. We were using it to put together easy to read and accessible dashboards to display high level information for our senior executives. This became an ad hoc type of request and pulled in data from finance, sales, and security.,Drag and drop feature for creating a dashboard is very easy to use and intuitive. Easy to share with other users especially if you want them to have a read only file. Depending on the machine you have, it can be very fast and responsive when pooling data together.,Mobile system is wonky and not as intuitive as the desktop version. I would recommend against viewing the dashboards on a mobile device as well.,9,Tableau Desktop,9,8Sisense a great solution to consolidate your Big Data Analysis Projects.We use Sisense across our Business Finance models in the Financial and Accounting departments. We use it to develop and redesign the information stored in our Project Management Software and our ERP systems for the Construction and Real State Field. It gives us the perspective to consolidate everything in a single, easy to manage tool. Sisense reduces the time it takes to obtain complex reports from many different data sources, and controls a variety of formats in one single tool that enhances our BI platform and our internal and external resources delivered to our end clients.,Sisense is easy to set up and connect to a wide variety of formats and platforms. Sisense reduces the time it takes to obtain an optimal ROI. Sisense really delivers the instant analysis required to merge financial numbers and statistics with a pretty accurate dashboard landscape.,Sisense could work on their management strategy for dashboards that are created by multiple users, reducing the complexity and improving their management options and security premises. The navigation and filtering options could be useful in the mobile version, but Sisense needs to work on the layouts to improve the UX. Sisense is a heavy app so be careful if you deploy this powerful tool in a resource that is under its system requirements--it can drive you crazy waiting for optimal performance.,9,Microsoft Power BI, Domo and Tableau Desktop,9,9,Microsoft Power BI, Domo, Tableau DesktopSisense: your data mateSisense can be used by every department in the organization. It will help each teams to understand, explore and leverage their data for any of their business decisions.,Sisense is amazing when it comes to ingest and mix all your data sources with no advanced IT skills. Sisense is the most efficient tools for data modelling. You build a data set in a snap, ready to be used for your dashboards. Sisense allows anyone to build their own dashboard. The interface is "uber" intuitive, and "uber" efficient : no need to declare filters, data hierarchy or anything. Once your data are loaded, just build dashboards. Once they access a dashboard, users can fully exploit it and interact with the data : drill anywhere, explore the filters, add filters by interacting with the data visualization.,The platform do not natively support data set allowing the users to see the table name and field name in multiple language ; but there is an easy to use external plugin It is not possible for a "reader" to create on the fly custom data group,10,Microsoft Power BI,10,10,Microsoft Power BISisense is good a dashboardingSisense is being used by a number of areas within our organization. Our board of directors appreciates the ability to present key metrics about our company on a single page. The graphs are easy to understand. The ability to gather information from disparate divisions and present a unified picture saves time and aids decision making.Our division heads use it to get a picture of how their individual divisions are working. The ability to show the data in graphical form with minimal programming allows them to make better decisions for their departments.Our compliance department uses the graphs to quickly find issues within the company. By highlighting outliers from a number of different systems, corrective actions can be taken quickly, eliminating potential legal issues.,Sisense can display data in a variety of formats, tabular or graphical, with no programming necessary for the display logic One 'elasticube' or back end data source, can collect data from any number of different systems. Sisense provides connectors to more than 20 different back end technologies, including all of the leading databases and flat file formats. The Elasticube can contain a query that joins together data from disparate data sources. The graphical front end facilitates filtering the back end dataset, both at design time and at run time, allowing the user to see just the necessary data set. Graphical views can be linked, allowing the user to drill down to see more details of any part of the database.,My non-IT users are often confounded by the techniques necessary to build beautiful dashboards The web version of the elasticube manager does not do everything that that the desktop application does. With version 7.1, this seems to be getting better. More to follow... Our primary contact person keeps changing, leading to difficulties in continuity of support. On the plus side, it is nice having a dedicated support person.,10,SAP Crystal, Microsoft Visual Studio Team System and Kendo UI,8,10,Microsoft SQL Server, Cerner HealtheIntent, UltiPro

We were pulling in data from 3 different departments to demo how well each would be able to not only utilize the tool for their own purposes but also to test how well the system worked with disparate data sources. We were pleasantly surprised when the system was able to pull in data from these different sources without jeopardizing speed or reliability.

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.

Sisense continuously works on collaboration with the use of centralized centralization. This brings together decision makers via flexible user management. Group users together to easily share dashboards and speed up working with large teams. Grant users full admin rights to manage other users, data sources, and security settings to diversify responsibility for a deployment and support business continuity.

Access control within Sisense has limited customization options from an administration perspective, but the sharing and collaboration of these tools is well put-together. The tool offers exports in multiple formats, link sharing for collaboration, view modes for live presentations, and snapshots of dashboards and widgets. The tool is not only designed as an analytical tools, but a presentation product as well.

1) It is easy to share a dashboard or a data source to a team.
2) An administrator can also decide who has the capability to edit and design dashboard.
3) Admin can also set up security rules so that restricted information is shared to only users who have the right permission and that's really important today.

Easily share, manage and migrate dashboards and elasticubes across servers.

Allows you to share the same dashboards to multilple customers and consumers while applying data restrictions so different users see different data using the same dashboards and the same data-sources.

Natively and easily share reports using emails, PDFs, or URLs to the dashboards themselves on the system.

Though it is possible to share dashboards and even collaborate on design and filtering, it's not intuitively clear what changes are limited to what you're doing and what changes will be transferred to who you're sharing the dashboard with. It ends up requiring a guess and check cycle with lots of communication to get a collaborative dashboard correct.

Web interface is wonderful. The ability to export a FORMATTED report from Sisense to Excel is really lacking. They're working on it but so far, minimal progress. Items come over without number formats, columns not wide enough etc.. Also, printing to PDF only works on things that fit on the page. Multiple-page tables, for instance, only show the first page and first few columns.

Publishing changes is push button simple. Managing cube access is pretty easy if you manage users and groups as you expand. Finer grain security takes a little more work, but can be automated with tables. It's important to train your users and publish digests or updates of changes so they don't lose track.
