Overall Satisfaction with Sisense

Sisense is being used through our entire organization. It allows us to provide data analysis and reporting to external customers as well as internal users. It drastically reduces the volume of reports being manually run.
  • Simple, clean user interface. Sisense offers the most options to the designers and admins. Leaving the end-user the abilities only they need. No confusing layers of options they can't use or understand.
  • Fast building of metadata layer over millions of records.
  • Ability to interface (reliably) with various databases/systems including IBM iSeries.
  • Better ability to download data to excel in a readable format close to what appears in the dashboard.
  • Knowledge base is vast but not easily searched.
  • More customization options for UI.
Sisense offered very reasonable enterprise licensing and was eaiser for end users than most other tools that can interface w/ the iSeries.
Sisense was the only tool that could reliably interface w/ IBM iSeries. In our daily use, we use data sources from SQL Server, Excel, iSeries with no problems.
Web interface is wonderful. The ability to export a FORMATTED report from Sisense to Excel is really lacking. They're working on it but so far, minimal progress. Items come over without number formats, columns not wide enough etc.. Also, printing to PDF only works on things that fit on the page. Multiple-page tables, for instance, only show the first page and first few columns.
Great for simple, clean reporting to all customers. Particularly appreciated by customers who get intimidated by too many options in other tools.
