Overall Satisfaction with Sisense

As the premier company for cannabis industry data and insight, delivering fast, accurate, and visually appealing dashboards for our clients is mission critical. Sisense allows us to present data in a visually stunning manner that continually "wows" our clients, with the dashboards seamlessly integrated into our web portal. The ability to add in third party/custom plug ins, as well as community support for the plug-ins makes Sisense very flexible and powerful.
  • Once the data model(s) and formulas are set up, it's easy to get designers up to speed and creating their own dashboards quickly.
  • Excellent integration into web portals and white labeling.
  • The ability to add in third party/custom plug-ins, as well as community support for the plug-ins, makes Sisense very flexible and powerful.
  • Admins can't view all user dashboards - they must be shared by the user first.
  • Some settings can't have their default changed, forcing them to be set manually for each new dashboard.
  • Sorting abilities are limited to what's visible, with no ability to sort one column or labels based on the value in a non-displayed column.
Connecting to data sources, and modifying/refreshing the connections is a breeze.

Once the data source(s) are in the Elasticube Manager, the data sources can be from any supported platform, and be seamlessly merged.
It's very easy for any dashboard designer to share the dashboard with any individual, or group of people.

The one weakness is that the admin(s) can't view all reports when needed.
As a market research/data company, Sisense is how we deliver our core product to our customers. Sisense excels at portal integration and white labeling. For experienced data analysts, it's not a great replacement for more traditional OLAP solutions, where drilling and slicing in and out of the data is a full-time position.
