Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Because this solution is very easy, and very visual, you can have results in minutes.
It is a good platform for data analysis, organization, and all of the other interim performances that are necessary.
Tech support is very helpful.
My primary use is for view of the dashboard.
It ingegrates nicely with Office 365.
It is a powerful tool that helps our data analysis processes.
It's user-friendly and provides data abstracting capabilities. We are also able to share reports with our colleagues very easily.
There is a lot of help and documentation on the Internet, so no special training is needed to use the source code.
I have found the dashboard creating feature helpful.
It has allowed me to move my data to the cloud.
Allows users to build their own solutions without as much reliance on technology staff.
Ability to work with very large data sources without the limitations of Excel.
The dashboard design interface is very intuitive and allows you to quickly and easily produce professional, innovative dashboards.
No issues with stability. It is a very stable solution.
A very simple setup: Easy to download, install, and updates are pain free.
Support is very responsive and clearly one of the strengths of Sisense. I have always received a fast response and the staff is very helpful.
I would like to see a feature that connects with a Machine Learning platform like a RapidMiner or Azure Machine Learning Studio. It would be great to have a Machine Learning application link to connect.
It could have more of a hold on big data. Manipulating big data on this solution complicates things. This needs to be improved.
We did have some issues building the Microsoft blog.
Powerpoints are not available in the report server.
The report server feature is quite limited.
It would be nice to use other connectors to link with the data.
The DAX features need some improvement. It's not as easy as Excel. They need more DAX formulas.
The reporting part of Microsoft BI is rather limited compared to other reporting tools.
They should improve the filters to create downloaded data by moving them to the top of the dashboard.
I would like to see more development and growth for the support of Knowledge Base and Community forums.
I would love to have more customization capabilities for building dashboards, especially in creating custom widget sizes.
I would also like to be able to run a bursts of reports based on different field values with PDF output right in the tool, rather than filtering on each field value and generating each PDF manually.
The initial version we purchased only ran on Windows servers, which was less than ideal for our DevOps team. I believe that has been remedied in the latest release.
The administrative side of Sisense is a little cumbersome and confusing.
Larger datasets will sometimes give a "Accumulated logs" error when trying to make minor changes. T
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is reasonably priced.
No comment on pricing.
It is a cheap solution for our needs.
It is free.
It is part of our Office 365 license.
The costs are small and the benefits are high.
The Report Server is pretty expensive on-premise. But as long companies are happy to use the cloud version, that's very cost effective.
