Pros: This is one of the best tools available in the market. Great statistics reports are generated by providing with great insights.

Cons: Customer support could be a little better. Sometimes it takes a long time for them to come back with a solution. But otherwise a great software.

Pros: Sisense has great functionality and ability to easily manipulate data schemas, throw up elasticubes and generate reports. The API functionality is quite useful, and the concept is really well thought out in terms of side features like CSV exports, widgets, APIs, and alerts.

Cons: When elasticubes fail, some errors are impossible to really know what caused it. We had cases where cube builds would somehow trigger a "Server was unexpectedly shutdown during the build process". Or "Elasticube is having difficulty building". I wish there were measures to prevent entire machine crashes.

User friendly product.

Comments: I encourage to structure online materials with better tutorials and documentations. Many functions don¿t have clear descriptions and examples. Then it will be easier to use them without spending extra time on understanding them.

Pros: Really easy to build basic dashboards which are included in the simple setup. For example pie chart or column charts look nice for simple analyses. Focus on visualization, which is good for end user. Charts look simple and clear

Cons: BUT when you want to make any improvement which is not the simple setup, then advanced java script knowledge is required. And many features which are widely used in other softwares are ¿extra¿ for sisense. For instance showing values on the column chart in the way they will be visible and not overlapping is an extra feature which has to be written in the script.

Pros: Able to get a demo up very quickly - basically a full functioning demo product.

Sisense is used in our organisation to perform the following tasks:
- Bring together data from multiple data sources (mysql databases, google spreadsheets, google analytics, web analytics tools)
- Dashboarding - various sales/metric dashboards are displayed around the office on large plasma screens. Individual users also have access to the dashboards.
- Adhoc reporting - we also use Sisense to perform adhoc reporting and do data extractions across different sources

The product has a long way to establish a single source of truth for our sales data, but to also allow for the quick and timely extraction and presentation of data in dashboards which was previously done in a very laborious way.

Once you bring in your data from multiple sources you can use custom SQL language to bring all data sources together. This is a great way of doing things

Drag and drop dashboarding

Sisense support was also excellent and they were able to provide us with a cloud solution as a one stop shop.

Very solid solution for the price.

Slick interface.

Cons: Drag and drop dashboards also mean there is less customization of dashboards. Not as flexible as Tableau.

If you get your data model wrong the product can hang - you need to self-verify your work. Which you should.

Not sure how it performs with truly big data sets.

Overall: Value for money solution

Sisense has been a great addition to our toolset.

Pros: It has an extensive suite of specialized visualizations & configurable filtering, and their 'elasticube' does make data modeling and integration much more manageable than competing products. Numerous free plugins, some of which include support. Strong customer-focused follow-up & tracking.

Cons: Their dashboard layouts enforce some rather onorous constraints (large margins or padding, text sizing or truncation vs. wrapping, etc.) that impact the amount of information that can be displayed. These are supposed to be modifiable via JavaScript, but getting that to work is proving very troublesome.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the customer support. Onboarding and working with a customer support manager has been an amazing experience.

Cons: The software has some catching up to do compared to companies like Microsoft. Without copying ideas from other platforms they need to advance and make the program more user friendly.

Comments: Sisense have great customer support. It is clear that the success of this company operates from the inside out. They have the best and the brightest. I think the Sisense Community for users should release more creative content.

Pros: Ease of use, great features, and always evolving. Great ability to analyze and visualize complex data sets. Small learning curve.

Cons: I don't think it is as cost effective as other users make it out to be. Additionally I think this space is too crowded and Tableau / Power BI often beat them to the punch with certain features.

Fast to ROI. No need to staff with highly paid data engineers provides for lower TCO.

Pros: We first fell in love with the look and feel of the product. Then we realized how straightforward Sisense is to use and how easily we could change the way we analyze our business. Dashboards quickly changed the way we communicate our KPIs throughout the company in a very transparent way. Conversations are easier, employees are more motivated than ever, and all are held accountable to their work.

Cons: Performance has been a challenge for us at time with the more complicated dashboards. We have the dashboards refreshing every 5 minutes and that also can slow us down.

Comments: I'm using Sisense for 6 months now, I am the main designer in my company. We didn't used to look at data so much and the process wasn't too efficient. People in my company are now getting used to making decisions based on data, and they are using the dashboards of Sisense more and more. I am really enjoying it.

Comments: We purchased the Sisense Dashboard application about 8 months. My company provides Broadband Service Assurance Solutions to companies all over the world. The product and services provided in many ways are customized to a particular market based on their specific needs and network. However one common theme in all markets is improving testability which is measuring the accuracy at which measurements and analysis are performed. The Sisense Dashboard application was chosen as it provides a comprehensive set of tools allowing implementation of customer specific dashboards in a short period of time. The people at Sisense are extremely knowledgeable about their product and are always willing to assist. I have had the pleasure to work with many individuals within Sisense and have many productive meeting and conversations with Alex Rich, the Tollgrade Customer Success Manager.

Pros: There are so many options and capabilities with the dashboard application that I see over time being able to enhance what I deliver to the different markets. This is important to keeping customers engaged.

Cons: Customer service trouble tracking is sometimes difficult to keep up with; tickets are closed before having an opportunity to look at suggested resolution.

Comments: Sisense will be the first to tell you how fast their product is (and tell you every fifteen minutes to make sure you don't forget!). They boast a speedy system with their in-chip analytics and web-based analysis that lets even older computers use their software. They certainly win in the aesthetics category, I found their UI to be incredibly intuitive and easy to learn. I was impressed by their willingness to spend time digging into your data as an example for their analytics software;

Pros: The UI is awesome, people will fall in love with how it looks.

Cons: When you start paying for licenses on a 'seat' basis your costs jump up quickly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try out a few different softwares before making your choice. I recommend looking into Microsoft Power BI as a much more affordable option a

Comments: Sisense is a great tool that comes with many hidden gems. It's perfect for IT departments that want to empower their users to be more educated about their data and help their user to make data-driven decisions. With the abundance of data connectors, intuitive and powerful data mapping GUI and easy to use dashboards for both technical and non-technical user, Sisense is a great choice to serve as your data and BI back-end.

Pros: Powerful data-mapping GUI with great support for custom SQL and pre/post build plugins/scripts. Intuitive dashboards for non-techies and tech-savvy users. Dashboards support customisable plugins (with strong community support) and scripts to satisfy the power users. Great API support for automation. Solid technical support to help you with any technical challenges. Access to features request. Speedy delivery of new and useful functionality to increase the value of the product over time.

Cons: The new features can't come soon enough, but the roadmap looks solid and promises to deliver lots of goodies. The API documentation could be improved, some more advanced functionality is not as clear as it could be, but there is always tech support to compensate for that.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't get scared by abundance of functionalities that Sisense offers. It's rather easy to get started and you quickly get to the see the value and the power of Sisense. I'll find your self quickly iterating and extracting more and more value from the tool.

Big data for ordinary people.

Comments: I'm a product manager, not a data scientist or linux guru. I needed a means of developing business analytics tools quickly that would meet my customers' needs. Sisense provides a platform for ETL, and web-based dashboard design that works really well.

Pros: High speed data analytics. Simple ETL. Reasonably simple dashboard design.

Cons: Somewhat inflexible in design choices. A Sisense dashboard is fairly easy to spot even if white labeled.

Recommendations to other buyers: Download the demo and allow one of the engineers at SiSense to build a custom browser based analytics tool quickly.

Comments: We use SiSense as an OEM tool in place of a traditional OLAP deployment. We chose SiSense due to the out-of-the-box nature of the product, as it was quick to implement within our stack. By far, the most impressive part of SiSense has been their customer success team. Edan has been an incredible success manager for us - professional, responsive, and informed. He's managed expectations on our end exceptionally well and accurately and gotten us the help we needed when we needed it. He's the primary reason four this 4-star rating - he's been simply fabulous.

Pros: The dashboard creation wizard is pretty robust and fairly easy to use. You will need an SME within the organization - this isn't a tool that I would simply throw at someone and expect them to learn in a few weeks, but that's largely due to the wide range of capabilities the tool has. However, the wizard is much more intuitive compared to a tool like Tableau. The UI of the dashboards is beautiful and offers a nice range of customization features. It's a much prettier dashboard than Tableau. Finally, the ability to write custom Javascript for formatting preferences has proven to be a very nice feature.

Cons: The cube processing itself is quite limited - this is not a big data tool. Cube builds on our dataset take almost two hours. Part of this has to do with our Elasticube design being suboptimal, but I would argue that just provides evidence that you need a very technical SME within your organization who has experience designing OLAP models. My major objection is pricing - they charge on multiple vectors; by cube and also by a user. It's complex and the costs ramp up very quickly. I wish they'd pick one vector to price on, as it would make both budgeting and affordability much better.

Recommendations to other buyers: Think long and hard about design before you implement. Managing cube build times across a 100M dataset on SiSense is hard enough, let alone if you're trying to build a cube with a bad model. Monitoring tools on system uptime are also incredibly important - having tools to augment the system monitoring SiSense has become very helpful for us.

Comments: We've just completed the onboarding process with SiSense and everyone has been a pleasure to work with. Our prior vendor disappeared the minute we signed the contract. SiSense has been in touch with us every step of the way and it's made the process very smooth. Thank you!

Pros: Does not require IT staff to create reports. Our business users are very engaged creating reports for themselves. Super slick UI.

Cons: None yet

Recommendations to other buyers: Go through the demo process and they will create a sample dashboard from your existing data. The process sold us on the tool.

Comments: At TRACK Hospitality Software, we are delivering Cloud based applications for the independent travel market. Our biggest problem was responding to our customer base's demands for data and analytics about their business. Sisense is allowing us to turn our existing set of table-based reports into a powerful set of dashboards that bring BI analytics to all our customers. The team at Sisense has been world class and empowering us with the deployment and development tools needed to bring our solution to our customers.

Pros: Excellent client-side dashboard design tools and capabilities. Exhaustive support for importing of data from a huge variety of sources. Very good UI for design and manipulation of data sources. Simple setup and deployment, really does make going from nothing to great looking data dashboards lightning fast. Good extensibility model with world class REST API support for managing and handling deployments.

Cons: Product lacks good support for multi-organization deployments: Sisense is tailored very much to be a large enterprise type of application, so deployments involving multiple sets of customers require additional development cost. Product can stand to improve with better support for micro-level date and time based data sets. Needs better support for software development lifecycle models, (e.g. dashboard versioning, widget repository)

Recommendations to other buyers: Solid as an enterprise class BI solution. Strains a little bit when being used as a multi-organization solution. Sisense team is incredibly responsive and forthcoming, which gives us great confidence that the product will do nothing but improve to address current deficiencies of the platform.

Comments: Sisense was selected based on its ease of implementation in tandem with the ability for us to roll it out with limited training balanced with the overall investment required. We evaluated several other products and it was the most intuitive of all the products we looked at. The user base had a chance to use the application in a POC and picked it as a decisive winner over the other evaluations.

Pros: The best features of Sisense are the user-friendly interface and ability to deploy efficiently.

Cons: The application lacks a control of the exporting function. It gives you the ability to export both the dashboards and the widgets in 2 formats each, but the format of all the exports are not completely under the control of the administrators. Most of it is select a few options and hope it comes out looking professional. A reporting engine that allows the administrators to format a template used in the exporting options would go a long way.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take time and evaluate each product with your data and with the metrics that are important to you. All of the vendors tout a product that is full of functionality at an affordable price, when a lot of them struggle with some metrics. For us, we were looking for a ease to use platform that could be implemented quickly so we could begin the evolution of how we manage our data and our business.

Pros: The ability to turn raw data into a cube with endless possibilities for data analysis. The software has the end user in mind each step of the way, so there is no need for dedicated IT staff to work on the project.

Overall: Sisense made the entire transaction an enjoyable one! Their sales team was extremely accommodating and patient as we requested several demonstrations and extensions to our trial license. They even attended a meeting with our internal stakeholders to answer any questions that might arise. Transition from Sales to Onboarding was seamless with no gap in productivity. We were even able to use the dashboards created during the decision process for immediate use in our production environment. Our onboarding specialist was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. The product sells itself with its flexibility, ease of use, and user interface! It takes the requirement of having dedicated IT staff and puts the ability to analyze data in the hands of the user who knows the data best! We are excited to finish developing our dashboards and roll them out to the project managers in our company!

Comments: Sisense has some features that put it ahead of the rest of the BI tools we researched when looking to upgrade our analytics. They have a robust back end that could clean our data and link it together, and an intuitive front end that allowed for quick dashboard creation and live filtering on those dashboards. Being able to answer complex business questions live for our management team is something Sisense allows and really puts us ahead of our competitions. Coming from the Vacation business YoY analytics per day is essential to set the correct price, Sisense's calendar heat maps were the best of any of the BI tools we investigated and is changing the way we price our product and the frequency we make those changes. That alone may make up for Sisese's higher price, but good support and implementation of the BI tool made up for the price difference.

Pros: Robust back end that cleans data, intuitive front end to create dashboards, support to properly implement and solve complex data problems

Cons: Higher price than competition

Recommendations to other buyers: If you need deep dive into your data and your business stands to benefit from making more and frequent data informed decisions, Sisense really is one of the best tools out there.

Comments: I was searching for a new data visualization tool for my company and came across SI Sense. After exploring the tool, I found it to be not very user friendly compared to its competitors and very limited with the provided visuals. My company was just looking for a versatile took, while SISense seemed to emphasize its data cubes and data transformation tools in their pitch. We decided to not go through with the purchase and received kind of a rude email from the sales team for wasting their time.

Comments: I began using Sisense in the hotel and hospitality industry and have since branched into other industries. I was intrigued with the product in the beginning but it was once I began using it on a daily basis and dug further into it's features that I realized the depth and robustness Sisense offers. The first phase of using Sisense was with a company that implemented Sisense throughout every department (approx 60 users). This included frontline sales, accounting, marketing, account management, exec level - even the internal phone extension list was hosted in Sisense. For this company it removed the task of reporting from the IT department and shifted to myself - someone with a business/management background. Whether I was supplying my end users with a pivot of 1000 reservations, or several different KPIs that measure daily sales performance, Sisense has brought value to each end user.

Pros: -Formula presets -Web interface -Simplicity connecting to separate data sets -User friendly for non-BI end users

Cons: None as of yet.

Recommendations to other buyers: Sisense is a top to bottom BI tool that is suitable for small and large organizations. The largest area of value is that implementation and building reports is fast and easy.

Pros: The ease of use for end users. Great organization of information. Building dashboards don't require any in depth SQL knowledge, but you do need to have an idea of how the data is stored. Can link multiple data sources together (MSSQL, Oracle, Salesforce, MySQL can all be joined if fields allow).

Cons: Building the back-end requires in depth SQL knowledge if using complex databases. The joins are an inner join by default (can't select a different type, have to create a table defining a different join type). Licensed per user per year, but hosted on premises. Eats resources like it's candy. Really have to beef up your server running the back-end.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're looking for in depth analytics and have multiple data sources with the SQL knowledge to go with it, this is the tool for you. If you're looking to pull data from one or two tables, this is overkill.

Pros: Very easy to get started with, great onboarding support, doesn't rely on the cloud, connectivity to multiple data services, especially easy to use with Excel grids.

Cons: Not sure that there is support for FileMaker connectivity which is used pretty ubiquitously in small publishing. SQL has a fairly steep learning curve for a group of non-technical people. Dashboard use isn't necessarily a straightforward process. For instance, one of our principals basically wanted us to recreate a spreadsheet look. More guidance on dashboard building and best-use would be helpful for internal adoption. The dashboard presentation leaves a lot of non-information clutter on the screen. (Can we get rid of the menus on the right and left and the SiSense logo at the top, to make things cleaner?)

Recommendations to other buyers: Is the tool cloud-dependent or cloud-friendly, or is it installed software. Are there any technical requirements necessary, like (some) knowledge of PHP, SQL, XHTML, JS, for example. What data sources does the tool connect to. How can data be distributed from the tool, e.g. via web, PDFs, email...

Cons: There are sometimes minor bugs here and there that makes the tool feel incomplete. However, the production support system is very responsive and they even follow up with you to check if everything is going smoothly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure it's easy to use and fits all of your business needs.

Pros: I've been working with SiSense for over a year and have found it to be extremely useful for a variety of business needs. It saves us time by helping us streamline the parts of dealing with data that are the most tedious and unwieldy. It's easy to use and understand. Time to get data up to visulalization is quick. Users can look at their data in variety of ways. And with plug ins and regular enhancements it's constantly evolving.

Cons: Some functionality is not implemented yet that's on the roadmap. Waiting for these features to be available.

Recommendations to other buyers: If there is something you think it can't do, ask about it. It's growing all the time.

Pros: The Sisense product is solid, but the professional services team really takes it to the next level. It is very good out of the box. We met regularly with their technical staff about our needs and what we were trying to do with it, and they provided advice, coaching, and sometimes entirely new features in the product to help us be successful with the product.

Cons: Output options are still a little clunky, and the mobile app is still maturing.

Recommendations to other buyers: Get the most out of the product by engaging professional services. The platform is intuitive enough you can get pretty far, but without guidance you can get pretty far down a path that is less efficient than what is truly possible.

Pros: One of the things I like best about SiSense is how it's out of the box ease of use has the ability to evolve into a much more advanced analytics tool with continued use. Plugins, custom javascript, upgrades, and new features ensure that I'm always improving the analytics I can do with the tool. Also the ability to set regular email reports, download dashboards as pdfs, and quickly push changes to the users lets us answer business questions on demand in a way we never could before.

Cons: One of the things I dislike most about SiSense is their Elasticbue build process. As our data models have expanded we've found it difficult to manage the build times of our larger cubes which can take several hours to build. For instance, we cannot build changes to the cube while one of the regularly scheduled builds is occurring and the 'stop build' functionality has never been very responsive. It is my understanding that the next version will completely redesign the build process so I'm looking forward to seeing these changes.

Recommendations to other buyers: When evaluating BI software don't worry about how 'pretty' the dashboards can be. While the flashy widgets and beautiful charts have an initial appeal you'll quickly find that the most important information you can show the end users is KPIs and pivot tables supported by some graphs. Ease of use, the ability to transform data, and quickly publish dashboards to users is much more important in the long run. This is the reason we stopped using Tableau and are strictly using SiSense now.

Cons: ETL functionality is still a bit lacking so we've added on a separate ETL product to pre-process our data

Overall: Sisense has sped up the cycle from ideation to deployment. In the past we were caught in long development or BA research cycles. With Sisense our business users can make most of the dashboards then need out of the box. We can sit together and immediately visualize vs contemplating what could happen with a few weeks of effort

Recommendations to other buyers: The Sisense product delivers tangible results quickly without requiring professional services. Other products we looked at failed in this.

Comments: I've encountered Sisense in my new workplace. Before that, I had no experience with user friendly BI solutions, the on-boarding process (and my own hands-on experience) gave me a good starting point, from which I've been learning and developing.
From data setting, to the actual usage of the dashboards, the interface and the supporting services, Sisense are really going out of their way to make it easy for you to handle your data. I'm sure that any position in your organization, from the most experienced BI expert to the most common user, will handle it and will manage to fetch realization out of it.

Comments: We developed our first BI solution in couple weeks ! Sisense team was so available and proactive during the whole project so different with other BI tool editor (I have been working with two of the main rapid BI pure player in my past experience). Their website and support are full of useful informations, and you can totally manage your project with tutorial or developers comments and tips. Besides that, their onboarding process enable to spend time on very specific questions and they always find a solution to make your BI dreams come true. Great tool, great team, great people !

Pros: You can pull and manipulate data easily. You can customize reports/charts for each end-viewer.

Cons: There is a learning curve if you do not have IT experience. I'm an accountant, so I needed help from our IT department to get the data linked and to cleanse our data. Some of the custom formulas require coding, but Sisense support can walk you through it.

Recommendations to other buyers: How consistent/organized is your data? Are you able to data cleanse easily?

Comments: Sisense distinguishes itself from an increasingly crowded marketplace with a phenomenally easy to use, fast, seamlessly integrated product. Its Elasticube server/database provides a single point ETL, Data warehouse and semantic layer rolled into one. Building a usable data model is a cakewalk compared to other products out there. Transparency and flexibility of the model is outstanding. You can easily see underlying data, create custom calculation fields using traditional SQL, preview data at will, and make changes quickly without worrying about "breaking" the data warehouse.

Sisense Elasticubes accommodate multiple concurrent data sources from a variety of database types including traditional, cloud and big data. Not to mention, you can join on key fields even from Excel and CSV flat files. You may run into some slowness based on data volumes and refresh frequencies.

Installation is a breeze. Download the package from their website, tweak your installation parameters and let it go. No additional scripts or components. No additional servers to be set up. This is a single machine-install that uses every drop of juice your server can provide. Make sure you choose upper end of processor and memory specs.

Sisense's single web interface for designing individual visuals (charts, graphs, tables, etc) and dashboards is a pleasure to use. Whether you prefer building bottom-up or top-down, this is a truly easy interface to use as master. Filtering capability is remarkably well developed and scope/type of filters can be regulated without leaving the web page you are on. Visuals look great as they are, but if you want to tweak the look/feel and behavior of individual charts, all you need is a working knowledge of Javascript. Their website is remarkably rich with customization scripts, plugins and API libraries for most applications.

If your company uses Unix based servers, may be a challenge to use since primary install package is Windows. Your mileage may vary with their scalability and governance architecture - for purists and traditionalists their approach is not "conventional". I think they have eschewed clustering for a different approach. Confirm if this works for you - especially if you expect a growth in volume/users/complexity. Fidelity of report export format and scheduled report emailing need some polish. I hear the newer versions have fixed these issues. If these are important to you, check first. Definitions of ¿Enterprise Class¿ vary.

Comments: We installed the software on a Windows instance on Amazon. The installation was really as easy as 1-2-3. We had our first cube up and running in literally no-time.
All throughout, Sisense's service was prompt and to the point, and tackled the few minor incidents we had with barely and wait time.

Pros: Even though I had limited technical experience with database modeling, Sisense and team made it simple to get functional dashboards within the first 30 days. The dashboards look beautiful and the end users are thrilled with the results. So far, I have been able to field all requests from users without relative ease.

Cons: Their forum/user support seems sparse, but I have been able to find support for pretty much everything I need.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you have someone who understands your data structure on the onboarding calls.

Comments: I had first introduced SiSense to a Midwest business in Ohio. It is a nice sized firm focused on Revenue Cycle Management for Radiology Practices across all 50 States in desperate need of modernizing both the look and feel of their current set-up, as well as the functionality. While knowing reporting upgrades were necessary, I knew that whatever the choice, I needed to be absolutely precise when replacing the old with the new. I also knew that we needed to run both systems in parallel to implement safely and smartly. All of these items were communicated to every vendor during the vetting process and for nearly a whole quarter- It was the incumbent verses the likes of SiSense, Tableau, Domo and others.

Ultimately, I chose SiSense based not only on the product's flexibility, but the company's "All-Hands-On-Deck" approach to understanding our business prior to telling us that it would do things that it couldn't. From the pre-contract "sales funnel" to the on boarding staff's attentiveness, there was patience and willingness to help us learn and embrace all feature sets helpful to the business.

In the end, I would and will use SiSense over and over again. For small to medium size businesses, the product is pretty straight forward using a quantitative and tenured employee or two. For larger, more complex installations, I do recommend having a web/app/dev type of staff member available during the initial build process, which is what I ultimately did, but ONLY due to the complexity of the metrics needed to run this particular business. Today, the product continues to take on new shapes and forms, especially as ad-hoc requests encourage reporting in ways deemed previously unattainable to this company.

Finally, with the continual attention to detail that SiSense provides to its clients, even during their own growth, I will gladly use and recommend this product for large, medium or small implementations across the foreseeable future.

Pros: We are currently at the product evaluation stage to recommend a BI product for one of our government clients. But it is already clear that Sisense is the all-round champion in the following areas. 1. Ease of use for end user 2. Ease of implementation by SA and DBA 3. Innovative back-end that delivers scalebility and performance 4. Great framework that empowers developers to write custom widgets or custom applications, and 5. At a affordable price

Cons: UI is not a polished, even though a user can customize and refine through CSS.

Recommendations to other buyers: Go beyond what is visible and look into its architecture and framework from the life-cycle perspective.

Comments: We wanted a way to use our CRM's built in security schema to drive how we share our dashboards/visualizations. Sisense's "anonymous" login in feature allowed us to do that by letting us embed dashboards within the CRM framework. This feature also allowed us to be able to share the dashboards on a public webpage just as easily.

I found Sisense free of the clutter of user names, accounts and security options that we did not need and were trying to avoid with a BI product. It also provided crisp, clean visuals which I felt were lacking in some of the other products. It's been a perfect fit for our operation.

Comments: Pros:
Our company is using MySQL. Before Sisense we wrote queries to pull data, which is not very time efficient. With Sisense we could query data much faster and do lots of ad hoc analysis. Also worth to mention that Sisense allows to create custom table/field that gives us more capability to do advanced analysis. And the customer service is fantastic.

Cons:
Sisense doesn't have connections with statistical packages like R and SAS.

Pros: I've been building dashboard by using open source tools for data upload and building frontend reports. The amount of time it took for me to build them was a lot. With Sisense, data can be loaded into Sisense and dashboard creation can be done in no time.

Cons: Data import part seemed less powerful. Hence if the source data is not exactly in table format, ETL needs to be written seperately

Recommendations to other buyers: You need quick, easy, click-to-action kind of tool to create dashboard, Sisense is a straight yes.

Pros: The best thing I liked in Sisense is that its very user friendly, very easy to use. Dashboard built using Sisense looks very professional. The clients were really impressed by the way data was being represented

Cons: Pricing is a bit high. This is the only thing I liked the least about Sisense. Plus since its a subscription based product which makes your investment yearly.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're looking for a easy to use dashboard builder with minimal effort, you can blindly go ahead with Sisense.

Great Intelligence for Business and Technology!

Comments: My company has been using SiSense for almost two years as an internal tool for quickly creating dashboards for both business and technical needs. Since our data sets live anywhere from Google Docs to MySQL to IBM Netezza, SiSense has greatly increased our ability to expose our total data asset for visualization and has allowed us make better decisions - faster. Other platforms simply do not offer the flexibility and ease of use that we required.

Pros: We have had a great relationship with the SiSense technical support staff that has worked both ways: they provide great insight and feedback into how to best leverage our data asset and we have given some interesting use cases that have been built into the product. Additionally, since SiSense connects to almost every data storage platform our there we have continuously used SiSense whenever we need to get a quick peak under the hood at our data asset in different systems.

Cons: No true cons - our major challenge has been taking our enormous asset and figuring out the best approach to organizing that data in the Elasticube framework. The support that we get from SiSense has been critical in ensuring that we can work around those challenges as they occur.

Cons: What I like least about the product is its pricing. For a small organization, this product can be a burden.
