Sisense recently announced a new initiative and another step forward in the quest to simplify the way business users consume, interact and engage with business data. Sisense BI Virtually Everywhere takes data out of the 2D screens in which it “lives” today — and gives it a new, physical presence, to inspire immediate data-driven action in response to changes, as they happen.
The private beta launched with two Sisense-enabled devices — a smart IoT lightbulb that integrates with Sisense to show the way your department or business is performing against a certain KPI (for example, changing to green once the sales reps hit their daily targets); and an Amazon Echo device that enables you to ask questions about your data and receive questions, all in natural language.
For the company, the initiative fits like a glove with three of Sisense’s core mission statements: simplifying complex data, building new and innovative technology, and delivering unparalleled user experience to our customers.
They've got a lot more planned in the future, too — the possibilities that can come from combining data analytics with the Internet of Things and new innovations in VR and AR tech are mind boggling. At this point, BI Virtually Everywhere is a private beta, and they're already getting almost more requests to join than they can handle. However, for now, registration is still open — so go ahead and apply.
