SiSense Announces $30M in Series C Financing to Further Fuel Explosive Growth and Spread New Paradigm for Business Intelligence

New Investor DFJ Growth Leads Round on Heels of Triple-Digit Growth for Third Consecutive Year and Mounting Demand for Trailblazing High-Performance Business Analytics Solution

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/14 -- SiSense, a leader in big data analytics for business users, today announced $30 million in new financing led by prominent venture capital firm DFJ Growth, with participation from existing investors Battery Ventures, Genesis Partners and Opus Capital.

"SiSense is leading a new generation of business intelligence and analytics applications with a technology that is robust and sophisticated yet simple to use," said Randy Glein, DFJ Growth Managing Director, who is joining SiSense's board of directors. "SiSense allows business users to take advantage of Big Data and make sense of it instantaneously by revolutionizing the way enterprises gather and analyze information. Customers rave about SiSense and its ability to easily integrate multiple data sources, scale far beyond competitive solutions and be adopted directly by business users with little to no support needed from IT specialists. With its unique technology and experienced leadership team, SiSense has rapidly emerged as a leader by disrupting legacy approaches that simply can't match the scale or performance of this powerful BI platform."

"We are honored by DFJ Growth's confidence in our ground-breaking approach to business analytics," said Amit Bendov, CEO of SiSense. "DFJ Growth has a reputation for identifying leading companies with disruptive technologies, such as Box, DataStax, SolarCity, SpaceX, Tesla Motors, Twitter, Yammer and other visionary leaders in its portfolio. We look forward to continuing to disrupt the status quo and shake up the archaic world of BI."

With hundreds of customers including Target, eBay, ESPN, Samsung and Wix, SiSense continues to aggressively expand customer acquisition worldwide. The latest round of funding will enable SiSense to expand its team, increase the company's global footprint, and deliver technology that continues to challenge legacy Business Intelligence (BI) players.

Continued Hyper Growth
Last year was a banner year for the award-winning company, which registered triple-digit subscription revenue growth for the third consecutive year and opened its U.S. headquarters in New York City. SiSense is continuing its explosive growth in 2014, fortified by the introduction of SiSense 5, the first analytics solution enabling non-technical users to join multiple data sources, analyze billions of records and share interactive dashboards from any device, including mobile. Its back-end is powered by a proprietary In-Chip technology architecture that yields 100x more data scalability and 10x faster performance than in-memory architectures.

"Many companies claim to tackle Big Data," says Bendov. "What sets us apart is that we're more than just a pretty face -- as our motto states, we're the whole package -- brains, brawn and beauty. We provide a full-stack BI solution, with a powerful in-chip technology back-end, along with a beautiful front end that enables non-technical business users to create visualizations and share interactive dashboards on every device including smartphones and tablets."
