What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped my organization?

We implemented the solution into an environment that had been using Excel as a business intelligence tool with data delivered on a monthly basis and we have freed our sales staff from being Excel pivot table experts.

What needs improvement?

The application lacks a control of the exporting function. It gives you the ability to export both the dashboards and the widgets in two formats each, but the format of all the exports are not completely under the control of the... more»

What is most valuable?

* Rich integration features * High customizability * ODBC feature allows unsupported data sources (when drivers are available) * Customizations features enable user interface modification (for someone who knows JavaScript)

How has it helped my organization?

We dropped Excel and saved hours of finance team work, with automated reports and dashboards.

What needs improvement?

Sisense has no native support for week as a data dimension, which is a major issue for us. They try to remediate this with plugins and custom SQL scripts and it works, but only to a certain degree.

What is most valuable?

The dashboard design interface is very intuitive and allows you to quickly and easily produce professional, innovative dashboards. ElastiCube Manager allows you to combine multiple data sources and add additional fields and tables with ease.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

* 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.

What needs improvement?

Minor improvements with formatting of data exports from dashboards. The ability for non-admin users to schedule the emailing of dashboards. I would like to see more development and growth for the support of Knowledge Base and Community forums.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable thing I have found is the ability for Sisense to connect data from totally different sources. I can connect an Oracle table with an Excel document, an Access document and a ODBC MySql table, and quickly merge them all and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

A lot of the answers required by internal teams can be found much faster. Scenarios where there are discrepancies in the data can be found quickly by comparing disparate data sources. Also the convenience of using the same build to keep... more»

What needs improvement?

Larger datasets will sometimes give a "Accumulated logs" error when trying to make minor changes. This usually requires you to run the entire Elasticube.

What is most valuable?

The Sisense data cube allows us to execute heavy, complex computations on the fly so customers can slice and dice the data based on their business needs. The visualizations are adequate and the support from their team has been outstanding.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Prior to Sisense, we had very limited reporting capabilities in our product. Most analyses were performed manually and delivered to customers in Excel or PowerPoint files. Because these analyses could not stand on their own, we needed a lot... more»

What needs improvement?

We struggled a bit to get the data cube setup in a way that could be built in a reasonable amount of time. The initial version we purchased only ran on Windows servers, which was less than ideal for our DevOps team. I believe that has been... more»
