CROWD ACCELERATED BI
SOLVING AN AGE-OLD BI PROBLEM
Sisense groundbreaking data analytics software and technology solve an age-old Business Intelligence (BI) problem – the performance degradation that occurs when the number of users and queries grows. In the past more users meant more hardware resources. This was also the case with traditional in-memory solutions, where additional users required additional RAM.
REWIRING THE CACHE FOR ANALYTICS
Sisense business intelligence tool has revolutionized the ability to scale users and queries by shifting the way caching is used. Traditional BI tools don’t gain much performance benefit from traditional caching unless identical queries are being requested each time. If the query has changed, even slightly, the CPU must re-calculate from scratch rendering the cached data useless.
In today’s BI environment, users cannot be limited by the software or hardware they are using when asking the questions a business intelligence solution is supposed to answer. Every user has a different set of questions to ask and they are rarely, if ever, identical. With different questions hitting the BI tool all the time, the cache is constantly being regenerated and the CPU quickly gets overloaded.
BREAKING QUERIES APART
With Crowd Accelerated BI, Sisense breaks each query into Query Blocks. Rather than the entire query being cached as a whole, each Query Block is cached individually. Queries, although not identical, will generally share identical Query Blocks. As the number of non-identical queries grow, so does the number of cached Query Blocks. Therefore, the more Query Blocks that are stored, the faster the response time to new queries becomes.
In this way, Sisense has revolutionized BI by becoming the only technology that keeps the CPU cool and the cache efficient even as the number of users and queries grows. With no hardware upgrades required, scaling to more users has never been easier.
