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.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
