SiSense's PrismCubed Brings BI to SMBs at a Fraction of the Cost

08/10/2009

SiSense, Ltd., a provider of powerful business intelligence (BI) tools for small to medium businesses (SMBs), today announced the next generation of their successful Prism product, called PrismCubed.



ebizQ received the following:

Providing enterprise-class business intelligence functionality that is easy to create and maintain, PrismCubed is an easy to use, low cost tool for in-depth, end–to-end business intelligence, capable of visual representation and ad-hoc queries of large amounts of integrated data from several data sources.

“The face of BI needs a major lift. BI is old,” says Burton Group senior analyst Joe Bugajski. “Its wrinkles tell of hopeful days long ago. BI needs fresh faces to turn heads away from wizened products. Enter SiSense, a tiny Israeli BI tools company and one of the pretty, fresh BI faces seeking partners among SMBs.”

SiSense’s PrismCubed satisfies SMBs' requirement for sophisticated, multidimensional analysis of accurate day-to-day business data, which until now, was limited to expensive BI tools used by resource-rich enterprises. With no coding, programming or scripting necessary, PrismCubed can be implemented quickly, with limited technical resources and at a very low cost.

“PrismCubed is the breakthrough BI technology that finally brings enterprise-class analytics to SMBs,” said SiSense co-founder and CEO Elad Israeli. “SMBs need clean data that is ready for analysis and accessible by many. They need all the power and functionality of an enterprise analytics system brought to the fingertips of any executive or IT manager without the resource baggage of programming, long project cycles, training, and unnecessary drain on time and budget.”

Small and mid-sized businesses have multiple data sources that need to be integrated, and that need was previously served only by expensive tools that were difficult to implement. With PrismCubed, companies can easily and dynamically perform information analysis from existing company databases, deploy them to users and create a scalable and secure solution.

The product’s interface is designed to make it extremely easy to use for business intelligence application creation, including intuitive dashboards and guided analytics from multi-sourced and disparate data. PrismCubed allows users to perform all data preparation, integration, synthesis and joins using a visual workflow, enabling the development of a robust and accurate business intelligence practice regardless of company size or resources.

Optimized for unmatched query speed, PrismCubed’s new data store utilizes in-memory technology coupled with a columnar database, eliminating the need for resource-draining data warehouses or OLAP implementations. A unique feature of PrismCubed is the ability to connect directly to data sources such as Oracle, SQL Server MySQL and even an existing OLAP to show live dashboards and guided analytics applications.

PrismCubed covers the entire process of building business intelligence applications powered by multidimensional analytics, from Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) of data coming from disparate data sources to dashboard and analytics creation and deployment. Data from sources like Excel, csv, Access, Microsoft Analysis Services, SQL, MySQL, Oracle and others can be immediately sourced and processed for analysis by PrismCubed. The integrated centralized data can be deployed locally or on a server.

“Four years ago, SiSense’s CEO, Elad Israeli, asked himself two questions: Does BI really need massive ETL, big iron servers, and large development teams to win SMB’s hearts and dowries? Can BI be easy to deploy, simple to use, and inexpensive to own?" notes analyst Bugajski. “Elad answered by building PrismCubed, that he claims – sans big iron, big development, and big costs – is pretty enough to win over eligible SMBs from Microsoft BI, Tableau Software, Actuate, Illuminate, or old folk with facelifts (i.e., SAP Business Objects, IBM Cognos, Oracle Hyperion, and MicroStrategy).”

PrismCubed is available immediately and may be purchased as an individual license or server license. The server license enables unlimited users for a fixed price. A full-featured 30-day trial is available for download at: www.sisense.com.
