Overall Satisfaction with Sisense

We use it to comprehensively analyze all aspects of our fleet of road building equipment and tooling. Prism provides the advanced tools and techniques to manage our government's vital infrastructure assets in the most effective possible way.
  • Prism is unparalleled in its ability to uncover, highlight and explore complex relational database components.
  • The Elasticube feature, and its accompanying T-SQL expression builder, allows the user to create a suite of highly customizable and efficient query tools to tackle virtually any analysis.
  • With its ability to simultaneously query multiple databases Prism brings real industrial strength analytics to the ordinary non-IT professional.
  • I'd like to see more styles of charts, graphs and visualization tools generally. Specifically more detailed 3-D, contour and other specialty multi-axis surface type charts .
  • Creating custom expressions in the Elasticube code window can be a bit tricky if you're not already familiar with T-SQL or its variants.
  • As an evolving product, I found that the User's Guide could be improved.
Simply and succinctly put, Prism's query capabilities and real-world analytical features far exceed any of those named above.
1) It's that good. Full stop.
2) Practical considerations. I have based my entire section's databases around it
3) Their Customer Service is awesome. Real people who are really smart and always do what they say they will.
Very well suited for linking and querying financial and physical asset performance together. I have found nothing else that competes with Prism in providing the comprehensive customization, visual and industrial strength query tools in one easy to use package.

Make sure your computer has the physical goods to get the most from the software. I recommend a 64 bit version of Windows and at least 6 gigs of RAM as a good starting point.

I haven't had to use their Customer Service for technical help recently, but I have had nothing but positive experiences to date.
