Go Beyond Dashboards with Sisense Extense Framework

The need to infuse actionable intelligence derived from analyzed data into workflows is clear. According to Gartner’s Research Circle Members, workstream collaboration (products that deliver a conversational workspace based on a persistent group chat to organize, coordinate, and execute outcome-driven teamwork) is a vital focus area for companies of all kinds.

By 2024, 85% of organizations using Workstream Collaboration (WSC) will have extended it to all office workers across the organization, up from 45% in 2019.

Here at Sisense, we’re getting ahead of this trend with the Sisense Extense Framework, which empowers teams to infuse actionable intelligence from their data into the tools they use most every day: Slack, Salesforce, Google Doc, and Google Sheets (and that’s just the beginning). Watch this video to learn more about how the Sisense Extense Framework makes every application an analytics power house.

While COVID-related restaurant closures dealt a blow to the beer industry, 2021 saw a 2.5% bump in beer sales and strong international growth is projected through 2025. And technology is helping drive that growth: Brewers are using new equipment and techniques, social media is connecting brewers and audiences, and the use of data is opening new possibilities, as well.

But with all that growth and potential, what happens when you get to the shop and they don’t have the beer you want? 

Sisense client RetailZoom specializes in helping supermarkets and suppliers do more with data. They took their massive stock of data and dug deep into the behaviors of beer buyers with an eye towards understanding what brands people turn to when their preferred beer isn’t available. Do they stay within the same category? Is price a factor? What about visibility and the layout of the beer case?

What they learned is fun, informative, and could be the future of shelf stocking for retailers of all kinds, regardless of what they’re selling. Read more to learn about how infusing actionable intelligence from huge supplies of analyzed data is helping revolutionize the supermarket beer experience.

Sisense Fusion Analytics, the next-generation analytics tool, goes beyond standard business intelligence by allowing all skill levels to analyze data and build customized experiences that are infused into workflows and processes at exactly the right place and right time for everyone across the business.

With the recent addition of Notebooks into Sisense Fusion Analytics, we’ve taken the platform you already know and love, and elevated it by incorporating a code-first tool to help Business Analysts solve more ad-hoc, complex, open-ended, and less-clearly defined problems.

For the first time, analysts can perform advanced analysis within the self-serve BI environment without having to use separate tools to access SQL, Python and R.

We’ve bridged the gap and created an integrated solution that is accessible to business users and data analysts alike, in order to capitalize on the full potential of analytics.

To understand more about the power of Notebooks and its benefits, check out our Whitepaper, 3 Use Cases for the All-New Sisense Notebooks.

Sisense Named a Leader in The Forrester Wave:

Augmented BI Platforms, Q3 2021

What is a Forrester Wave? 

Forrester Waves are assessments that stack-rank vendors in various technology markets based on criteria established by the analyst firm.

Allison_Able_4-1638552453678.png

Why Was Sisense Named a Leader?

Forrester gave us the highest possible scores for our strategic execution; innovation; planned enhancements; machine learning for data scientists; NLG; collaboration; operations; modern architecture and extensibility; and customization criteria. 

In addition, Forrester said our integration with Jupyter capabilities “will appeal to professional data engineers and data scientists.” Our Sisense Fusion NLQ is “powerful.” And our integration with Git “will appeal to DevOps pros.” Lastly, they called our unique IP: an in-chip processing architecture (our proprietary technology can move data between RAM and CPU faster than native OS capabilities) that supports extreme scalability (claims confirmed by customer references).
