Innovations of Sisense Analytics tools and the version history

Lately, we see a positive evolution when it comes to BI & Analytics functionality and support for operating systems, cloud platforms and connectivity. The latest innovations are in the areas of performance optimization > data pipelines, data connectivity > Cosmos DB, and data discovery > analysis > ad hoc analysis.

We reviewed Sisense’s most current versions of its product portfolio. Below you can see the structure of the history of the different versions of all available BI & Analytics products of Sisense:

  • Sisense Analytics: September 2023 February 2023 January 2023 June 2022 January 2022 December 2021 2022 8 7.1.3 6
  • Sisense Blox: 2.1.0 2.0 2 1.1
  • Sisense Mobile BI: 2.7

Behind each product, we mention the version numbers, the most recent versions are mentioned first.

What are the licensing costs of Elasticube, Elasticube Manager, and Sisense ElastiCube?

It is difficult to determine exactly what a license of Elasticube, Elasticube Manager, and Sisense ElastiCube costs because it depends on the country, the number of users (or the number of CPUs in the case of server software), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. If you do this a few weeks before the end of Sisense’s fiscal quarter, you may be in for a decent discount. In addition, it makes sense to run the software in the cloud, for the most part, you only pay for your consumption then. The purchase cost of Elasticube, Elasticube Manager, and Sisense ElastiCube may not be the single largest expense, but maintenance and support do show up in your budget every year.

What makes Sisense BI & Analytics worth considering

In our study, we see that Sisense in the field of BI & Analytics software has a number of specific features which are worth weighing in a tool selection. This makes Sisense Analytics more or less unique: quadrants chart, generative pre-trained, funnel analysis, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and cross-database joins.
