Review of Tableau Desktop/Server

2018-11-28

I work in healthcare analytics and find Tableau great for the issues we face. We have clinical and business office Dashboards that everyone from executives to managers to techs are able to utilize to better inform their own analysis, workflows,and decision-making.

Pros

One of the best parts of this software is that Users can access a URL and view all of the Dashboards and data analytics needed. When it comes to visualizing metrics with filters on data at the highest or most granular level you can't beat Tableau.

Cons

It would be nice if dashboards also had no limit on height (you can't add multiple visuals in Tableau, only what worksheets fit on the Dashboard . In SiSense, you can add as many as you like which is very common for users I've interacted with.

An powerful, flexible BI tool using innovative ideas and technology

2018-02-02

Pros

Data source management is simple and easy to use yet allows for customization. Dashboards are fast, easy to navigate and very aesthetically pleasing.

Cons

Not yet web-based multi-user eCube management (coming soon), not quite as rich of a dashboard visualization capability and fine-control as Tableau (but improving),

Great tool with great results and ROI

2017-06-14

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

Additionally I think this space is too crowded and Tableau / Power BI often beat them to the punch with certain features.

SiSense as an OEM Solution

2016-12-16

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

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.

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 others considering Sisense

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.

Able to get BI up and Running from Multiple Sources relatively easily

2017-10-31

Value for money solution

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

Not as flexible as Tableau. If you get your data model wrong the product can hang - you need to self-verify your work.

The best full stack BI solution on the market

2018-02-21

100's of thousands in cost savings from automation and resource redundancies.

Pros

Having tried Domo, Tableau and others in the past Sisense was the first real full stack solution that got us out of our data issues and into a centralized source of truth with reporting.

Cons

Would love to see more widgets and customization options in the future. Some of the administrative features could be more robust as well.

Advanced Product Capable of Running Big or Small. Quickly Scalable. Fast.

2016-02-04

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.
