Microservices Expo: Press Release

SiSense Announces Native Connectivity to Salesforce.com, Zendesk, Google

SiSense's latest version focuses on broader connectivity and drag-and-drop data mashups

SiSense, a provider of Big Data Analytics Software, recently announced Prism 3.0, the latest version of its end-to-end Business Intelligence (BI) solution.

With over 100 new features, Prism 3.0 introduces breakthrough in data access. Prism 3.0 enables customers to work with more data faster, regardless the number of datasources, no matter how big their data is or how fast it grows. A fully featured trial of Prism 3.0 can be downloaded for free here.

More Data, No Code

Traditional Business Intelligence tools require users to learn proprietary scripting languages to access and combine data. This process prevents non-technical users from working with data and building analytics quickly. In contrast, SiSense makes working with data a breeze. The solution lets business users combine data from Cloud and On-premises sources without any coding or scripting.

“It's fantastic how easy it is for non-technical people to use these tools after a bare minimum of training”, says Yossi Ankri, Analytics leader at Wix, a top online publishing platform.

Prism 3.0 supports major databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL and Intuit QuickBase, as well as applications such as Salesforce.com, Google Adwords, Google Analytics, Google Spreadsheets, Zendesk and Intuit QuickBooks. What’s more, connectors are available out-of-the-box and don’t require additional licensing.

Shining when others choke “As they work with more information and build more complete views of their business, customers store and query growing volumes of data” says Amit Bendov, SiSense CEO, “this is typically when traditional in-memory solutions run out of memory and require technical modifications to scale. With SiSense, just add data and ElastiCube does the rest!”

The ElastiCube is SiSense’s In-Memory Columnar Datastore and the company’s secret sauce. It lets customers store hundreds of millions of rows of data and query them at the speed of thought - without ever having to worry about running out of memory.

WeFI, a mobile broadband leader that covers over 100,000,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the globe, uses SiSense to analyze the behavior of millions of users. Their models contain numerous tables with active client records exceeding 500,000,000 rows of data. “Just load the data and Prism 3.0 does the rest”, says Eldad Farkash, SiSense co-founder.

Customers in 38 Countries
Multinationals like Target, Merck, and Cisco already use Prism to access everything from Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Excel all the way to SAP (NYSE: SAP) data. Earlier this year, the company announced a 350% year-over-year revenue growth and is well positioned to be one of the largest vendors in the Big Data Analytics space.

SiSense’s unique technology provides the advantages of In-Memory without its disadvantages; the solution has been chosen by hundreds as an alternative to solutions from SAP/BusinessObjects (NYSE: SAP), QlikView (NASDAQ: QLIK), or Tableau.

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
