NEW YORK, NYSisense, disrupting the BI market by simplifying business analytics for complex data, today announced that it will be launching ‘Sisense Startup.’ The program will offer qualifying early-stage startups complimentary licensing of Sisense’s market-leading analytics technology to embed in their application or solution. Participation in Sisense Startup is exclusively limited to innovative startups that have a direct affiliation with Sisense program partners such as Web SummitBessemer Venture PartnersDFJ and Battery Ventures. The program is expected to expand to include additional incubator programs and VCs in the upcoming months. Sisense will be kicking off the program at Web Summit’s Collision Conference in New Orleans, May 2-4, 2017.

Those accepted into the Sisense Startup program will join the Sisense community – from startups to top-tier global enterprises – that are growing their businesses through the use of embedded analytics. In a recent Aberdeen study, 73 percent of those surveyed indicated that embedded analytics is key to differentiation and competitive advantage. Sisense is enabling startups to capitalize on this opportunity by helping them rapidly and easily deploy industry-leading business analytics to ultimately drive customer value and adoption. Sisense’s unique In-Chip™ software and full-stack platform eliminates the need for significant IT budgets and resources to analyze and prepare complex data and turn them into revealing insights, thus shortening time to market – a critical factor in the success of early-stage companies.

Successful startups need to be agile enough to innovate, compete and grow quickly. By leveraging the Sisense program, these businesses can embed robust analytics capabilities to give their customers access to business insights that drive faster, data-informed decision making. This foundation of self-service business analytics is well-suited for early-stage startups that are looking to leverage analytics and arm their customers with the tools and information needed to drive action.

One of the biggest challenges startups face is the ability to get up and running quickly with products that deliver a competitive advantage. Data is extremely important to what we do and how we connect people at our events, so I look forward to working with Sisense on this initiative to give startups the tools to grow their businesses.
