In our VDI environment this lightweight web application is great for end users. Our end users can easily interact, drill down /into data like never before. It's excel on steroids for them!

Sisense is well suited for many applications as long as the data does not get too big. We use it to analyze sales, active vs. canceled subscriptions, usage of features in our software, etc. For big data it becomes a problem. Our software is deployed to several hundred thousand users worldwide - and continually reports back. This means the data grows exponentially.

If your company produces tons of data and you need to analyze a vast amount of data then Sisense is great for compiling easy to see and understand statistics. If your data keeps growing Sisense will start to bog down. In enterprise environment this could become any issue since it's not very easy to scale up.

Perfect BI solution on top of big data platform architecture to process and pre-aggregate data. Minimal supervision and database understanding is required. Also, perfect for businesses without big data, as it avoids additional headcount to package and present the data in a digestible format. Not as great when highly complex visualizations are required with a high level of customization. UI is not as enticing as Tableau.

Well suited
You don't need an actual data warehouse with historical and live data
You don't need separate solutions for ETL, DW and Reporting
You need all your data available via API's automatically

Less appropriate
You want to be to run stored procedure or cursor logic as part of your ETL (not possible in Sisense)

Well Suited when your company size is small and having billions of records and concurrent users are less.
If data can be stored in form of elasticubes and can be accessed offline. But for large organization, its not appropriate as large number of users required more logins and it leads to costing and maintenance issue.
Also, at times we have observed its instability.

Sisense is the best choice if your company is seeking a reliable, powerful and very accurate tool that can connect to a wide variety of standard and unconventional databases or data sources. With the proper assessment before its deployment, you can make it a win-win solution to deliver amazing dashboards and business reports that can consolidate different data sources, becoming a useful resource for both your business and your customers. If your company runs data analyses from multiple sources in the under 40 million rows or lower range, Sisense may be out of your league as a data analysis software.

Sisense is well suited for any organizational situation where you want to display data in an aesthetically pleasing and comprehensive way. It provides users with a way of communicating real time data with others in a company without having to constantly send updates or schedule meetings but rather having the data ready to present and accessible anywhere by anyone.

Sisense is extremely powerful for easily connect to data, mash them up and let non-technical users build the dashboard they need. The interface is very intuitive, both for data modelling and dashboarding. The solution is full web from end to end, and can run on premise, in private cloud or in public cloud. It is also extremely easy to manage the server. Even though the upfront investment is not nothing, the global TCO is extremely low as the product does not require specific technical skills. Plus Sisense provides a lots of documentation and self-service trainings.

  • Sisense is a dashboarding tool. It is very appropriate for delivering summary or exception data to the users, presenting it in a fashion that is easy to digest.
  • It is not as good at presenting tabular or raw data, showing the details that support the conclusion. If you need to see reams of data for the application, a reporting tool will be better suited to the job.

I believe it's very suitable for simple business cases and for presenting simple data. It's less suitable for more complex data sets, mainly because there's little options of querying raw data and plotting it on the go.

If you are currently transacting/maintaining multiple systems Sisense "sits" on top of them nicely. the ability to not only link to existing systems but add flat files to the Elasticube directly gives you additional flexibility.

Sisense offers multiple flexible pricing plans that can be suitable for all types of industries and company sizes. From a small business as ours, to a large enterprise. The Vendor allows you to try the product and develop a proof of concept before buying the product. So why not? Test drive your solution. This is what allowed us to understand how this BI tool would boost our company's productivity.

I believe Sisense is perfectly suited for any organization of any size that have access to the proper resources, as the tool is very expensive. The data connectors come in all shapes and sizes out of the box, which allows a great deal of data control within the ElastiCubes. Additionally, while the platform only runs on Windows platforms, the web application can be accessed on any client: mobile, Apple, Windows, etc. This allows a much more flexible user experience, resulting in data and dashboards reaching further than any other tool.

If you are looking to have an analytics tool for your company, or if you have a lot of data/data points.. then look no further. Sisense provide you with a comprehensive business intelligence tool for you to make the right decision with their intelligence capabilities. Don't build it yourself as it will take a lot of time and effort,.

Sisense is very well suited when data needs to be integrated with different data sources and produce results out of it. It provides top-notch dashboards and visualizations. It is also very easy to share these results across teams and organizations. It is only less appropriate in a very few scenarios which could also be improved. One of them is for mobile support. It can be slightly improved. The other one is for the admin to send results, which could be simplified. The other place for improvement is to make the plugins slightly easier.

Well suited for almost any BI implementation across any subject matter, and especially where a lot of data modelling must be performed on the data before used in the reports.

Somewhat lacking where the users/viewers of the dashboards need to have customization options of the dashboard per-user, such as when the same report might be used by different customers.

The speed at which we constructed our original solution, and several solutions since is outstanding. That speaks to the product functionality and performance, and the people at Sisense that have helped us along the way.

SiSense is great for going from zero to publishing engaging dashboards to a big audience quickly. You can quite easily go from having nothing to publishing sophisticated and beautifully designed dashboards in less than a week. Learning to use the technology is easy, pulling in data is easy and modeling data relationships is easy. Dashboard creation is also very intuitive and the so too is dashboard interaction.

If your use-case involves small installations with few users and/or a need to have offline access to packaged dashboards, SiSense might be a bit big for you: Sisense currently only has a server-based solution. To get to your dashboards you need to either have access to the machine where SiSense Server is installed or have web access to said server. There is currently no lite reader or desktop-only installation. This limitation would not have an impact in instances where the goal is to roll out an enterprise-wide BI solution, though.

Sisense is great for us namely because we don't have a traditional data warehouse.

There's room for Sisense to add more ways for users to collaborate on a dashboard, so if you have many people capable of designing dashboards, you have to do some workarounds.
