Sr. BI Analyst's Review of Sisense

Score 9 out of 10

Data Integration

Sisense has lots of third-party data connectors to anything you can think of. We use it to connect to SharePoint, Splunk, Excel, MSSQL, and more. We are looking into other data sources all the time.

Great BI tool for a great cost and easy to roll out to the organization

Data Integration

We were able to connect far more sources and combine them in a far better set-up then prior tools or Looker and for much less cost. Engineering wise we could bring in a data engineer in and have them run with things immediately. The report and data set-up on the front end are easy enough anyone can do it and allows users to do ad-hoc reports and dashboards for their own purposes, something Looker or PowerBI fails at.

Sisense is moving on up in the BI world

Data Integration

Sisense has many different out of the box data source connectors. We are primarily using just one - Snowflake as our data warehouse, where we have already done a variety of different data aggregation upstream. Sisense ElastiCubes are easier to use and perform better when much of the slicing and dicing of data is done in advance prior to being utilized in Sisense. Once ElastiCubes are built, they perform well for end users as queries only need to be made against these (though you can also query directly against the live source).

Still better than most of the competition by strides but needing a lot of work

Data Integration

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 is a reliable way of displaying data

Data Integration

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: Best Data Visualization Tool in 2018.

Score 10 out of 10

Data Integration

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.

Data Integration

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 is good a dashboarding

Score 10 out of 10

Data Integration

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.

Flexible BI single stack solution

Score 9 out of 10

Data Integration


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.
