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

Sisense's API allows for it to connect to a large range of sources but also improves those data sources by delivering an interactive dashboard. I wasn't fully versed in the details, but after speaking with our development team I got the impression that it was easier to connect to our different data models in Sisense than any other tool we were demoing.

Data source connectivity is one of Sisense best capabilities. It connects to all of your available sources and creates a virtual Data warehouse, which not only prevents from disconnecting, but it prevents the data errors I mentioned before on this review. Finally, this software stands out for its ability to draw large amounts of data from multiple data sources at high speeds.

Out of the box, Sisense has more than a dozen connectors available for external data. In addition, there are even more connector plug-ins available for download on their website from SQL servers to Facebook. These together help build a comprehensive data platform to connect data at all levels of the business.

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.

1) It is really easy to merge data from different sources.
2) It has good odbc drivers (This is really important to us as other providers do not have their own native odbc driver).
3) It queries really quickly than compared to other providers.
4) The option to use real time data (Via live connector)

Fully supports almost any common data-source, and easily allows you to model and mash-up data from multiple sources.

Supports Real-time visulaizations of data, but one point off because real-time visualization does not (yet) allow mash-up and or complex modeling.

Sisense has many great connectors out of the box, but when it comes to connecting to REST API's as data sources, there is no way to use an actual scripting language to generate hashes or signatures with timestamps where that is needed for secure REST API access. This was a big headache for us requiring a pretty convoluted work around.
