TrustRadius as web service platform.I was using SiSense PRISM as platform supporting our own www service. Our service provided a complex info about public contracts around Poland and we used PRISM as BI platform to generate Dashboards. Those Dashboards were used by our costumers to analyze situation on public contracts market and support them in decision to start with a given contract. Overall I see PRISM as a great tool, which requires not so much IT knowledge to operate and is not time consuming in terms of deployment and report or dashboard preparation. It is also very low on Hardware resources consumption.,Great at mashing up data from multiple different data sources. Easy deployment, ETL process, Dashboard or Report preparation and distribution to end users. Very low hardware usage so you probably wont need to invest huge money on new servers. JS Extensions engine which allows to create really powerful tailored features.,Plug-ins in ETL tool are powerful, but configuration could be a little easier. Also JS extension in PRISM Web is powerful but could be a little more clear how to use. Need to catch up with several common features for BI platform.,10,QlikView,InForum,JetReports,9,SiSense is used as OEM solution which prepares a data, and then disaplys it in embeded dashboard in current web based system. It is mostly used by non-technical users, mainly from mobile devices and outside of company's network. Dashboards are also embedded the way that end users do not need to log in and can use them by single click.,10,9,We're able to finish our web service which we could not with our previous BI vendor. We could use our own product in a matter of 2-3 months after deployment which was quick.,4,3,As of today None.,Final Dashboards used as IFrame on our web service. Ability to mash-up multiple different data sources Speed - even with lot of text to analyze.,Mainly as a platform integrated with our web service that allows an innovative approach to analyzing public contracts market.,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability,I would definitely be more thorough in terms of evaluating a specific features required for our own product.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was a big part of the implementation and was well-handled,Some issues with IIS, when implementing earlier versions of PRISM Web.,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,8,9,It is quite easy to learn on your own, but before doing so you need to identify your needs and if some of those needs are not met easily, conntact suport to learn more about it.,9,Do not use IIS Express if you're going to use mobile platform since it has some issues. Other then that installation and configuration is easy and standard settings for most cases.,Some - we have done small customizations to the interface,Yes - we have added extensive custom code,8,Yes,Since solution is only in English, fact that they allowed us to translate some parts of Web Interface to Polish was something exceptional.,ETL Dashboard preparation Dashboard distribution,Plugins in EC Manager.

Sisense helps us to provide operational, tactictal and strategical information.,The user interface for creating dashboards is very user friendly. The user interface for creating dashboards has a pleasant design. The performance of analysis on large datasets is excellent. Basic analytic cubes are easy to develop. Sisense support is excellent. Replies are fast and support personel have the required knowledge and experience. Upgrades have been deployed easily and without problems, up till now .,The development and maintenance of complex and generic analytic cubes could be improved. Export of data and visualisations to pdf and csv is possible. However the functionality is basic and limited. No time format/datatype available. This requires JavaScript code to make it work. JavaScript add-ons for bucket analysis and Gantt charts are limited and not supported. Very limited trellis functionality Cube field names cannot be changed without impacting the dashboards. Impact analysis is not available in standard software package. Cannot rebuild cubes without making cube inaccessible during rebuild period.,7,TIBCO Spotfire Platform, QlikView, Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server and TIBCO Spotfire Desktop,PostgreSQL,9,7,30,2,Provide Sisense as an information service to our customers.,Operational reporting Analysis of sales data Management information on medication usage,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Third-party Reviews,Our evaluation and selection process was successful and we are happy with the result, so no need to change it.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,Some add ons could not be migrated at first,7,Yes,8,When we migrated to a new server, we received several hours of support that could be considered as professional services. However this was done without additional costs.,Creating visualisations,Deploying a new cube means the users cannot use the dashboards for that cube. So deploying needs to be scheduled during night time. Time format requires JavaScript.,8SiSense new userWe will eventually role out SiSense for all business units to manage KPIS. Initially we are starting with the senior leadership team's needs for sales and product insights.,Intuitive GUI. Integrate many different types of data sources. Quick dashboard results.,Less reliant on IT support; we were under the impression we would not need to have a developer but it is necessary for back end connections.,9,,Tableau Desktop, Infor BI,7,5,5,4,Sales metrics IT production support.
