SiSense Unveils Crowd Accelerated Analytics: BI that Gets Faster, the More Users You Throw at It

October 28, 2013

SiSense to showcase In-Chip 2.0 patent-pending technology at Strata Conference + Hadoop World; announces opening of New York City headquarters

NEW YORK, October 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

SiSense [http://www.sisense.com ], the Big Data Analytics Company, today announced the
opening of its offices on Wall Street and unveiled new patent-pending In-Chip 2.0
technology with Crowd Accelerated Analytics(TM). This innovation to SiSense Prism
[http://www.sisense.com/prism ] provides business users with faster query results as loads
increase. It also allows businesses to scale to thousands of simultaneous users on a
single box. SiSense is demonstrating Crowd Accelerated Analytics at the Strata Conference
+Hadoop World [http://strataconf.com/stratany2013?intcmp=il-strata-stny13-franchise-page ]
(booth 70).

While performance of traditional solutions degrades with increased load, Crowd
Accelerated Analytics technology nets faster and smarter query results as users increase.
Costly bottlenecks are avoided and users benefit from each other’s queries even when
queries are not identical.

“Until now, the conversation has been around scaling data,” says Eldad Farkash,
Co-Founder and CTO, SiSense. “But what about scaling massive amounts of users and queries?
Old school BI nets users limited answers to limited questions. Crowd Accelerated Analytics
lets you analyze billions of rows of data in a flash.”

Crowd Accelerated Analytics is the only big data analytics technology to speed up as
the number of users increases (more users = faster results). Traditional BI tools rely on
caching technology that only works well when repeat queries are identical. But business
users do not often ask identical questions of their data. While other solutions slow down
or choke under the strain of increasing users with unique queries, SiSense Prism increases
efficiency and speed by learning from results of similar but not identical queries.

“Our entire business model is built on performance, so access to data in a timely
manner is mission critical,” says Motti Mor, Chief Client Officer, RealMatch
[http://www.realmatch.com/EN ]. “SiSense allows us to analyze the massive amounts of data
we have across multiple systems, in the speed and frequency we need to grow our business.”

During last winter’s Strata Conference, SiSense Prism won the Startup Showcase
“Audience Choice” Award [http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/-1762084.htm ] by
demonstrating its record-breaking ability to analyze 10TB of data in 10 seconds on a
single node standard Dell server. Now, in addition to its proven ability to scale
terabytes of data, Prism adds the capacity to scale to thousands of users on a single box.

“SiSense allows us to build real-time dashboards and reports which support our
internal business and tech operations teams,” says Elad Efraim, CTO and Co-Founder,
eXelate [http://exelate.com ]. “We’re able to make faster business decisions and identify
problems close to real-time.”

The Technology Behind Crowd Accelerated Analytics

“While other solutions get clunky and costlier as load increases, SiSense Prism gets
faster and overcomes the increased expenses associated with slow-downs,” says Amit Bendov,
CEO, SiSense. “It’s like we’re breaking the laws of physics. We call it power querying.”

Crowd Accelerated Analytics adds a significant scale boost to SiSense’s unique In-Chip
technology, which already surpasses traditional In-Memory when it comes to analyzing
massive amounts of data. The technology is easier to use and much more affordable than
legacy solutions, does not require data warehousing, and breaks capacity barriers faced by
traditional in-memory solutions. Prism includes a high-performance database, ETL
capabilities and beautiful interactive visualizations.

SiSense Prism features Include:

        - Ability to analyze 100x more data than RAM based in-memory solutions, 10X
        - Runs on commodity, "off-the-shelf" hardware
        - Comes with Out-of-The-Box Web based visualizations based on HTML 5 and
        - New visualizations including Scatter Map, Area Map, Scatter Chart, Point
          Chart, Radar Chart, Polar Charts, Wind Rose, Spider Web, Polar, Radar, Range Chart,
          Bar, Column, Funnel and many others.
        - Provides automatic extraction ("ETL") from all major databases including
          Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, IBM DB2, Teradata, PostgreSQL and Intuit
          QuickBase, and applications like Salesforce.com, Google Adwords, Google Analytics,
          Google Spreadsheets, Zendesk and Intuit QuickBooks, and data from Hadoop/Hive, Amazon
          Redshift, Heroku PostgreSQL and SAP (beta).
        - New SQL HTTP API SQL queries against the ElastiCube. Enables users to use SQL
          to query the ElastiCube for their own applications (results can be obtained in JSON or
          as CSV format).
