Sisense Review: "Strong Data Management Tool"https://www.trustradius.com/business-intelligence-biSisenseUnspecified8.7881012014-01-22T16:40:56.279Z
Overall Satisfaction with Sisense
SiSense is used across the organization. It's managed by an anaylitcal but nontechnical team. It's used primarily for dashboards which are consumed by executives, managers, and front-line employees. It allows us to have transparency into key metrics, allowing all users to have timely information about the state of the business regarding key metrics.
- Managing data such that there is a single source of truth
- Processing large quantities of data
- Connecting to many different data sources
- Building dashboards is very mouse-heavy and often a slow process
- Provide more training upfront so companies use best practices from the start
- Types of visualizations should be improved to look better and have more functionality & flexibility
Product is consistently improving. Support staff is knowledgeable and helpful. It has many capabilities beyond how we're currently using it. Scales well with a growing business.
- Increased data consistency
- More timely information, allowing us to address customer problems
- Improved efficiency for analyst team
SiSense deploys quickly and has a light footprint on a company's systems, so it's ideal for companies that need to launch and get results quickly. Admins will need a knowledge of the back end data sources and have an ability to manipulate them, but part of SiSense's value is in allowing users to be outside IT. For relatively novice analysts and managers, this is not the tool for report-writing; it's more appropriate to be used by sophisticated analysts pushing information to business users.
