About Sisense

Sisense is a  business intelligence (BI) software that provides analytic solutions and market insights for small to enterprise-level businesses. Sisense is one of only a few fully-functioning BI software systems that let non-technologically inclined users combine multiple data sets, customize dashboards, generate data visualizations, and share them with other users.

This web-based BI solution unifies data into one centralized location without the use of hardware or IT departments. Its data visualization features include a variety of widgets, such as line charts to determine trends and pie charts for clear comparison of findings, which allow users to uncover insights. Sisense’s advanced monitoring capabilities are crucial for experiencing business data in real-time as the most up-to-date information is reflected in the dashboard and available for immediate use. Another feature of Sisense is its collaboration tools which allow report accessing, monitoring, and sharing – without downloading the file. Its mobile capabilities include dashboard checks, data insight access, and push notifications.

Wix, a leading cloud-based web development platform, chose Sisense because of its customizable dashboard and scalability. Wix grew from a small start-up company to a reputable business with thousands of users and millions of websites. In order to continue to expand, it needed a software that would allow the company to derive insight based on behavioral data and to generate reports in real-time. It selected Sisense as its BI solution and Wix is now able to react quickly to market trends and to customize reporting based on the particular data needed.

What do you like best about this product?

We chose SiSense because it allows us to:
– combine data from different sources;
– adjust data by adding custom fields, custom MySQL expressions that make us independent of the engineering department;
– build and systematize business metrics;
– build any dashboards we need.
Plus SiSense fit within our budget, and was the best value we found.

What could be improved about this product?

– Mobile interface
– Setting auto update for all the same dashboards formulas
– Ability to sorting columns in descending order in a pivot table

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

We are a small/medium-sized internet business that’s 10 years old. Our business is very data-driven, requiring non-stop monitoring of KPIs and deeper analysis to solve problems and take advantage of new opportunities. We ran the business using excel spreadsheets, google docs, ad-hoc sql queries and internal reports (that were emailed daily). As we grew, and the business became more complex, it became increasingly difficult to use these tools to run the business. It was time-consuming (with too much manual work), and our data became either harder to access or fragmented in the company, as individuals created their own reports using their own metrics. It was particularly difficult to train new employees, who spent too much of their time figuring out how to get the data, whether to believe it or not, etc..instead of making smart business decisions using the data

Within 1 month, we started using SiSense in our daily operations. Over the last year, we have deployed SiSense throughout the company and have made the data much easier to access, with a single view that all employees share, and with real-time analysis that helps us make decisions quicker and smarter.

What do you like best about this product?

Having used Sisense for 2 years now, we are continually impressed with the company and the direction of the product. From the incredible support team to the vision of the product’s future, we are in great hands. SiSense has given us the ability to create and manage a “single source of truth” environment that is extremely agile and beautiful. Dashboards are created and shared in a fraction of the time it takes to build out in excel or in other solutions we have tried.

What could be improved about this product?

While the product gets regular updates there is always room for improvement. We would like to see additional widgets, enhanced web editing functionality built into the tool, and additional statistical functions. That being said, the product team is regularly reaching out for feedback on the product and over the past 2 years using SiSense, we have seen most of our ideas and feature requests implemented into the product, or given work-arounds that meet our business needs.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

Having used Tableau in the past, I knew the frustrations of getting a BI tool in place and how many people it takes to get started. With Sisense, I was able to see the ROI just by downloading the tool and seeing how I could quickly get our environment up and running without the need of IT or a development team. They showed proof of concept and let us take the keys to test for ourselves. And we LOVED what we saw.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

Sisense allows us to provide data analysis in a quick and efficient manor that alleviates data inaccuracies and silos. Sisense has given us a central point of data we can manage and utilize. Essentially getting us out of “spreadsheet hell” and providing a real BI solution that is complex enough for our data scientists, but simple enough for our executives can see the data in a way that makes sense to them.

What do you like best about this product?

I’m using SiSense for over 3 years now and I must say that this, by far the fastest BI Solution out there (I mean by that the time needed from installing it to get meaningful results). You do not need a specialized training to run it, it is quick and will run on most of-the-shelf server machines (you probably already have a machine capable of running it smoothly). Since this is a custom solution there are no hidden licensing costs, so what you’ll pay for SiSense license will be everything you’ll need (maybe you need to upgrade your hardware but it is nothing that is required). Another thing is the ease of use. Configuring ElastiCube (which is a main data source for SiSense) is easy and quick, dashboard creation is even simpler and distribution is simple as well. Only drawback I can see now is somehow limited functionality when you’re trying TO DO SOME sophisticated things. THEN you’ve to refer to Java Script extension provided by SiSense. You can either try to do it on your own or contact SiSense support. I strongly recommend this solution to all those companies who do not want invest time and money in traditional BI project and want to see results ASAP.
