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

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 offers a huge number of native data connectors. Those connectors include connectivity with third party connector provider and generic data provider like ODBC and REST. Plus the API easily allow to develop additional connector if necessary.

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.

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.
