Currently headquartered in New York, the world’s leading business analytics software company was founded in Tel Aviv in 2004. Their back-end in-chip tech draws data from multiple sources, supporting an intuitive front-end product that utilizes easy-to-navigate dashboards for customers to access across devices.

Sisense recently made headlines by achieving gender parity within their core operating team – a goal most tech companies still fall short of. With the appointment of Ashley Kramer (from Alteryx) to Chief Product and Marketing Officer, Shelly Landsmann (most recently from Microsoft) as Vice President of International Sales and Global Alliances, and Sarah Ward (formerly of MongoDB) to General Counsel, the company’s operating executive unit is now 50% female.

Last May’s acquisition of Periscope Data boosted Sisense to over $120 million in recurring revenue, and they now have more than 900 employees. A $100 million funding round in 2020 Q1 sent their valuation up over $1 billion, sealing their unicorn status.

Key Products

1. Business Analytics Software - Skip the data preparation nightmare. Collecting and preparing your data is the starting point for all that is business intelligence, and a lot of effort is spent just on that.

2. Data Connectors - Sisense lets you connect with your data, wherever it may be, with unrivaled ease with connectors. Choose to power your dashboards with live data models that leverage your high-performance database or mashup dozens of data sources in an accelerated cached data model.

3. Business Intelligence - No coding, no clusters, and minimum IT. Sisense is engineered to make complex data preparation and visualization easy.

4. Dynamic Buckets - The Dynamic Buckets add-on supports aggregating a column chart’s results into buckets. This enables you to dynamically or manually segment the result population into groups while still retaining the filtering functionality.

5. Interactive Pivot - Standard pivots can contain rows, columns, and values, but sometimes displaying all of the loaded data on the dashboard isn't necessary for the viewer.
