Analyze with Insight Miner

By Sisense

The Analyze with Insight Miner add-on enables you to uncover hidden insights with the power of machine learning in a click, regardless of your Sisense user role. This add-on adds an option to grab insights about your data from the widget’s menu inside your dashboard. After you select what data you want to grab insights for, Sisense displays a new window where natural language insights are displayed. The insights you see are displayed in natural language and are discovered using Sisense’s Insight Miner.

Once you get your insights, you can continue to dive deeper and retrieve more insights, or share the insights you already have.

The Analyze with Insight Miner add-on makes it easier to understand your data and share it with anyone.


The Analyze with Insight Miner add-on downloads the widget’s data and sends it to the Sisense Cloud, where the server analyzes the data. To use this add-on, you will need access to this server: ​[] Can check with -{{telnet 443}}.
