Overall Satisfaction with Sisense

We made the decision to try out several dashboard type data services with Sisense being one of them a few years ago. We were using it to put together easy to read and accessible dashboards to display high level information for our senior executives. This became an ad hoc type of request and pulled in data from finance, sales, and security.
  • Drag and drop feature for creating a dashboard is very easy to use and intuitive.
  • Easy to share with other users especially if you want them to have a read only file.
  • Depending on the machine you have, it can be very fast and responsive when pooling data together.
  • Mobile system is wonky and not as intuitive as the desktop version. I would recommend against viewing the dashboards on a mobile device as well.
We chose Sisense due to pricing structures as well as its speed and ability to connect to more robust data sources. Ultimately, the differences were minimal in regards to abilities and functionality; we just felt that Sisense provided the most reliable and consistent results among our test trials.
Sisense's API allows for it to connect to a large range of sources but also improves those data sources by delivering an interactive dashboard. I wasn't fully versed in the details, but after speaking with our development team I got the impression that it was easier to connect to our different data models in Sisense than any other tool we were demoing.
We were pulling in data from 3 different departments to demo how well each would be able to not only utilize the tool for their own purposes but also to test how well the system worked with disparate data sources. We were pleasantly surprised when the system was able to pull in data from these different sources without jeopardizing speed or reliability.
Sisense is well suited for any organizational situation where you want to display data in an aesthetically pleasing and comprehensive way. It provides users with a way of communicating real time data with others in a company without having to constantly send updates or schedule meetings but rather having the data ready to present and accessible anywhere by anyone.
