User Review: "SiSENSE as web service platform."
TrustRadius Review Summary
SiSense is great at mashing up data from multiple sources, easy to deploy, easy dashboard and report preparation, and low hardware usage. It is ideal for companies who are limited in money and time to deploy. A few areas for improvement include easier ETL tool configuration and the data context interface could be easier to use.
Overall Satisfaction with Sisense
From my point of view it is perfect tool for any company which just starts with its first BI solution and are limited with money. Also great for companies which do not want to have a time consuming project to deploy. It depends on how large your data sources are, but probably you wont need to invest in any new hardware.
Sisense Use Cases and Deployment Scope
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.
Sisense Alternatives Considered
Sisense Support Headcount Required
3 - One need basic knowledge on BI as general, some SQL knowledge, an analytical mind, ability to know how use script languages (it is not required but it is useful to have a general knowledge how scripting works; it helps a lot at some point). One also should have a basic taste for composing a color palette and Dashboard layout planning.
