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.

Allows us to execute heavy, complex computations on the fly so customers can slice and dice the data based on their business needs.
Whenever we have an issue or are unsure how to proceed, they manage to simplify the issue and help us execute it in a graceful and scalable way.

ElastiCube Manager is a very easy to use ETL tool, which includes the ability to easily transform raw data into reusable data.
There are many built-in connectors, which allow us to easily add new sources of data, often in minutes.
Sisense has helped us gain knowledge about our customers, as well as highlighting data quality issues to correct.

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.

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.
