Overall Satisfaction with Sisense

We are using Sisense both for business and marketing analysis, and for product analysis. Therefore, our challenges vary, from more straightforward financial analysis to very case-specific cases, that require a different approach.
  • Easily answer common business questions
  • Helpful support team
  • Creating new widgets and making changes in the existing ones is fairly easy
  • Charts are limited and important options such as additional data on hover or sorting stacked bar charts by value. Some of these options can be achieved with Javascript though
  • Filtering on dashboard confuses a lot of the users. There is no easy way to filter a specific widget (not by editing it)
  • Drill downs are not very straightforward, and field names cannot be displayed differently on drill down
  • The default color schemes could be better
  • Querying data on the dashboard level is limited, and visually uncomfortable
  • No readymade templates
There are a lot of well-supported data sources. However, some are missing key features.
Pretty easy to share and collaborate data
I believe it's very suitable for simple business cases and for presenting simple data. It's less suitable for more complex data sets, mainly because there's little options of querying raw data and plotting it on the go.
