https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/0P/Q9/A9AQNVR6GK0R.pngStill better than most of the competition by strides but needing a lot of workIt is currently being implemented to replace our organization-wide data warehouse and BI reporting platform. We've initially completed the data migration, and we are starting the build out of all of our organization reports as Sisense dashboards. Secondarily, we are utilizing their API capabilities to serve data to new websites we've recently launched.,Visual ETL and UI for data relationships and modeling within ETL. Drill down and interactive reports with varying levels of filters for each dashboard. Data alterations and updates are fast.,Their technical support has no option for immediate phone support in the event of a disaster or emergency. Their support staff is mainly located in Israel, so a ticketing system is relied on no matter what the urgency. Their tech support also doesn't easily remote into your instance if you're hosting yourself to be able to quickly diagnose issues. We've still been experiencing many random issues with Sisense like corrupt files and unexplained failures in production which seems very buggy. Anytime deeply advanced SQL is used in the ETL section (Elasticube Manager) Sisense kind of falls apart. It needs any complex queries to be broken down into multiple, separate queries at the simplest denominator.,9,,7,8,Slack, Zoom, MongoDBSisense : Great and Fastest Data Visualization ToolI have been using Sisense for many years now. Sisense is a data visualization tool, and it is the greatest step and latest in the Business Intelligence market. It provides the in-chip technology for accessing millions of data in the shortest span of seconds and provides the best visual efforts for your business data.,Fastest - due to its in chip methodology. Using great visualization, BI becomes easier with Sisense. Millions of data can be loaded in fewer seconds which didn't seem possible with other traditional reporting tools. Robust Architecture and provides Rest APIs to access it externally.,Instability of the data cubes, runs and failures. Unknown issues in widgets, dashboard, filters. Republishing of the dashboards for every single change. Variables, parameters cannot be used in the front end.,7,,8,7Real 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 Desktop

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
