Pros

Sisense support is super helpful and extremely responsive. I fell like whenever I have a problem, it is being resolved quicker than I expect.
The support is outstanding and the account managers are always there making sure your experience is successful.
My Org has huge volume of data and easy and quick analysis on this huge data set made super easy by Sisense. Great Visualizations as well and amazing Tech-Support.

Pros

Very easy to use for end-users, very nice visual representations, perfect for "build-it-your-own", really nice tool for interactive presentations.
What I like most about Qliksense is the ease in which you can portray the information, also the duplicate function helps you to customise your sheet until you like it over and over again.
You can connect with a very wide range of systems thanks to brilliant API support. The dashboards look really good and it can be integrated in to other systems.

Cons

The error message in the elasticube are sometimes a little weird.
Difficult to understand the error messages. You need Sisense Support Team's at all times.
Some basic formatting options are missing that makes export to PDF a pain, no option to export to PDF. Some Java related stability issues and the function set has much room for improvement.

Cons

There is no option for report delivery. The extensions need to be certified by Qlik so that we can use them with no worries.
The software's support model is horrific. Qlik uses value added resellers (aka VAR) for the most part.
It was dreadfully slow and awkward. We demo'ed a couple more software and chose Qlik Sense due its speed, scalability and performance on mobile devices.

Quick visualization with Sisense

Reviewed 2 months ago

We did a longer-than-normal proof of concept with Sisense and they were a close 2nd to Qlik Sense. Both software neck to neck. Compatibility of Sisense on iOS and Android tablets and phones was behind Qlik Sense. Although we didn't end up choosing Sisense, we knew that had we chosen Sisense, we would have been equally successful. Its installation, visualization, licensing and training were Sisense's strong points.

Pros

Sisense is fast to visualize. In most companies, it is typical do a month-over-month revenue comparison (or just period vs. another period). Sisense makes it very easy to visualize that. It helps with decisioning. Sisense is also very quick to get started. Developers and non-developers can use it equally easily.

Cons

It is typical to run into several little bugs with Sisense. Most bugs don't bother us, but it showcases the need for Sisense to do better quality control. At scale, Sisense modeling system can choke without good architectural skills. Loop in Sisense architecture team before scaling.
