NEW YORK, February 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
SiSense, the Business Analytics and Dashboard SaaS Company, unveils the first analytics solution enabling non-technical users to analyze terabytes of data from any mobile device. SiSense 5, purpose built to encourage mass adoption of users and frequency of use, will be demonstrated at the O'Reilly Strata Conference this week (booth number 829).
Only 16% of companies are running mobile BI projects, according to The BI Survey 13 by BARC (Nov. 2013). According to Gartner Analyst Joao Tapadinhas, "Currently, it's a better fit for information consumption, but is evolving to also support analytics use cases in the future."
The "Future" Has Arrived with SiSense 5
"What is the point of a business analytics solution if only a handful of people at any given organization use it or a mobile solution that crashes because it cannot scale?" says SiSense CTO Eldad Farkash. "The reason SiSense is able to succeed where others fail is that we first built a back-end that could support mass adoption and scalability to terabytes of granular data."
SiSense 5 works on any device - desktop, tablet, smartphones. The solution has been redesigned from scratch to support a smooth user experience from mobile devices. It includes push notifications and powerful drill down capabilities, among other new features - all designed to increase adoption. Its back-end is powered by In-Chip technology (100x more data, 10x faster than In-Memory), requires no scripting or coding, and enables mash-ups of multiple data sources in a proprietary centralized database.
"With SiSense 5, we are able to funnel all of our growing data sets into one central point that users from the CEO down to the customer facing support team can log into any device and draw insight from our data in a timely manner," says James Levine, Senior Analyst/CS Operations Manager, Act-On Marketing Software.
SiSense 5 enables non-technical business users to:
- Analyze data quickly on a platform built to handle thousands of users and queries (where other solutions slow down severely or crash)
- Share stunning interactive dashboards with colleagues
- Keep abreast of updates to dashboards via new email dashboard delivery
- Work from any computer or mobile device
- Quickly calculate statistical functions such as standard deviation and median over large data sets
- Ability to join multiple data sources in a proprietary centralized database
- Fully browser-based environment for developing dashboards
- Responsive design
- Powerful drill down features provide easy access to granular data
- Powered by In-Chip technology
- Simple dashboard sharing
"IT and business users have been slow to embrace mobile business analytics, in part, because a visually appealing front-end with limited back-end capabilities is of limited use," says SiSense CEO Amit Bendov. "To be of true value, solutions must be easy to use, scale to large deployments, and allow users to view and analyze large volumes of data and share results. All the back-end technological enhancements we made last year - including the introduction of In-Chip analytics - were leading up to this: a solution that can makes big data accessible to thousands of users across all platforms, with dashboards so attractive and analytics so intuitive, it encourages adoption across the organization."

SiSense enables non-technical business users to easily join, analyze and visualize growing data sets from a multitude of structured and unstructured data sources.
Powered by its unique In-Chip™ and Elasticube™ technologies - SiSense delivers unmatched performance, agility & value. With customers in 49 countries, including global brands like Target, ESPN, Merck and NASA, SiSense was recently designated a hot company to watch by CIO, CRN and Information Management and recognized as one of the "10 Most Innovative IT Ventures" at Under the Radar. Its solution won the "Audience Choice" award at the O'Reilly Strata conference and its CTO won the World Technology Award for the invention of In-Chip analytics.
