  19. 19. Technology Expertise
  20. 20. 1. The Secret Sauce : In –Chip Technology Bottom Line: Faster & No Size Limitations • Processing data with Sisense’s In-Chip technology is 10 times faster than processing it in-memory. • Columnar database that can comfortably handle terabytes of data and dozens of concurrent queries. • Non-techies can easily do it all in one click
  21. 21. 2. Using the Entire Memory Hierarchy, Even the Chip • Other solutions only rely on disk and RAM (in-memory) Sisense utilizes the memory available in the CPU. • Since CPU is faster than RAM, Sisense is able to move data 50-100 times faster than in-memory solutions • Completely agile BI software– and the next generation of data analytics.
  22. 22. 3. A True Columnar Data Store & Query Kernel • Columnar Database which slices and stores information as columns rather than as rows (relational database). • Pull a column on the disk without pulling the entire table • Sisense loads only a fraction of the data. • Columnar operations run 50-100 times faster than with a relational database • Sisense minimizes the amount of data moving across memory resulting in running queries at record-breaking speed.
  23. 23. 4. Being Smart about the CPU Cache • Calculations are performed inside the CPU, without having to copy data from RAM to CPU • Sisense gets optimum speed due to the movement of data from disk, through memory, into the various layers of CPU cache.
  24. 24. 5.Single Instruction, Multiple Data (SIMD) • Sisense leverages Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) instructions- vector instructions, by applying vector algebra to the data. • This enables columns of data to be acted upon in a single instruction. • Vectorization enables calculation of multiple operations simultaneously
  25. 25. 6.Crowd Accelerated BI: More Queries, Faster • Sisense breaks each query into blocks and caches them individually, collecting the blocks in a “recycle bin”. • When a new question is asked, query blocks can be quickly reused by simply pulling them from the recycle bin. • In this way, unlike other tools, the more queries running, the faster the response time. • The more people use Sisense to ask questions, the more efficient Sisense works
  26. 26. 7.Designed for Commodity Hardware • Sisense’s analytics database used disk, RAM and CPU so efficiently, it can crunch terabytes of data in seconds on something as small as a laptop. • Even in complex scenarios involving multiple users, big data sets and complex queries, any modern 64-bit chipset is enough to handle it all.

  29. 29. Deployment Models
  30. 30. Sisense Web Application • The Sisense Web Application port and website name will need to be specified. Typically if no other sites are running on the machine port ‘8081’ may be used. • There are three options for the server type: • Microsoft IIS Express – This is the default web server used to host the web application. • Microsoft IIS – This is recommended for production environments. In case there is an existing site with the same name it will be overridden. • Manual – This is recommended when you have to manually set up your IIS. If this is selected during upgrades, the installation will keep the existing site details and configuration in the IIS. When using this setting, make sure to configure the physical path of the IIS site to the new installation folder (C:Program FilesSisensePrismWeb)
  31. 31. Production Environments • It is recommended to first install in a staging environment and check all of your ElastiCubes and dashboards. Only when you are certain that everything is working as expected install the new version in your production environment.
  32. 32. Remote Access • To make the ElastiCube server available for remote access you need to open ports 811, 812 on the machine.
  33. 33. Launch • To launch Sisense: • Use one of the following options to launch Sisense: • If you have Sisense installed on your machine, select Sisense from the Start menu. • From a standard browser, go to the URL of the Sisense environment provided to you by your system administrator.

  37. 37. Shortcomings/Limitations
  38. 38. Shortcomings /Limitations Some things potential users might want to consider: It is not available in multiple operating systems, especially Macs. While their dashboards and visualization provide the usual graphics (bar charts, etc), there is no advanced graphics available (such as 3D or cube graphics) nor a plain format that is devoid of fancy graphics. And finally, the Elasticube functionality tend to be time-consuming and prone to errors, especially with failure to build errors. There is no way of knowing why those errors occur.
