Overall Satisfaction with Sisense

Sisense started being used by a single department and has taken off across multiple departments across the company. Our legacy and newer BI tools struggled with speed to develop and mash up different and large data sets - Sisense has bridged that gap and taken off as a result.
  • Ease of Use: Non-technical users can quickly get up to speed and become dashboard developers in a matter of a few days if they have a mind for data
  • Speed: Massive datasets are easily crunched on basic hardware. Ad hoc analysis on hundreds of millions of rows of transactional data is a snap
  • Support: The Sisense team from top to bottom is passionate about their product, and in fact when we log issues, we have a hard time keeping up to their speedy responses
  • Some of the enterprise functions are not fully baked (admins can't see all use and dashboards easily)
  • Missing a few critical connectors (e.g. Teradata)
Sisense can crunch loads more data and has consistently better performance than other modern BI tools; It successfully retains the best of the Cube world and also provides the power of modern in-chip visualization engine.
Massive range, always adding more - but have run into a few connections we have needed where we cannot access fast load functionality through a native connector and have to go to ODBC.
Just missing overall admin control. That's it.
Very well suited to rapid data mashup for massive datasets and self service BI deployment with a very smooth user experience
