https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/0P/Q9/A9AQNVR6GK0R.pngReal world Sisense experience.Sisense is being used across the whole company. 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: Best Data Visualization Tool in 2018.As a Business Intelligence professional, I live to learned about new solutions to create opportunities in different sized organizations. We implemented Sisense in order to help visualize data across different organizations. As of now the tool is used to display performance indicators and to help develop and maintain the performance-based budget.,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.,The usability of the application on mobile devices needs some improvement, especially navigation and filtering. Dashboards that are created by multiple users can be a bit of a hassle to share by Admins. If you need to embed dashboards into your website, you are require to buy a license separate from the user and platform license. This is a norm on most BI visualization tools, but Sisense can seem a bit on the high side, cost-wide.,10,Domo, Looker, Microsoft Power BI and Tableau Online,10,9,SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform, SAP Business Warehouse, Oracle BI Foundation Suite, Bell Data Center OutsourcingSisense - The analytics tool you've been looking for!Our company was in need of a comprehensive analytical tool in which we could develop actionable insights in relatively real-time dashboards. Most departments have some form of reporting tool that does not play well with others and organizational data is as disparate as they come. Sisense was demoed in hopes of alleviating these pain points for a detailed view into all areas of the organization based off data aggregated into a single, flexible platform.,Great management of large amounts of data from numerous sources. Beautiful visualization capabilities. Fantastic support of customizations through custom JS plug-ins. Implementation requires very little effort allowing users to start working with their data in a short amount of time.,After initial implementation, learning spikes up rather quickly in regard to SQL joins and custom table manipulation. There is plenty of documentation surrounding how to do specific tasks, but not as it pertains to errors and why other things do not work. However, this is constantly improving as the community grows and collaborators contribute content. There are quite a few tasks that require significant manual input and design. This is ideal in many situations; however, many users would like a more intuitive engine that can create working widgets automatically based on the type of data fed. Again, this is already a work in progress and will likely need much more data to establish a learning engine.,9,Salesforce Analytics Cloud, Tableau Desktop and SAP HANA,9,8,SAP HANA, Salesforce Analytics Cloud, Microsoft Power BI

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.

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.

Sisense helps very easy collaboration with other tools and different data sources. It is very easy to share reports with different people across organizations. Reports can be formatted once they are generated. The tool is also role based and has support for multiple users.It has a limited mobility but great mobile support.

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.

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.

Publishing by way of email has a lot of room for improvement (you can only send on specific days of the week, as opposed to, say, the 1st and 15th of the month).

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.
