SiSense, a provider of leading-edge business intelligence (BI) solutions, announced that its Prism BI software was selected by WeFi to analyze and report on a rapidly-growing database of more than 600 million rows of data. WeFi is a Web-based business dedicated to helping its millions of users find and enjoy the more than 75,000,000 Wi-Fi access points around the world cataloged in its system.
WeFi was looking for a business intelligence solution that would quickly perform advanced reporting and analysis over large amounts of data, including the behavior of millions of WeFi users, the performance and activity of wireless networks to which its users are connected and the activity records of active clients. Furthermore, the company wanted a solution which would allow its analysts and management to design and customize reports, dashboards and analytics without heavy involvement of IT staff.
SiSense was chosen over competing in-memory BI vendors for its shorter implementation time, faster query response performance, better scalability, lower total cost of ownership and more user-friendly report/dashboard design. Soon after deploying Prism, the company's business users were already creating their own reports and analyses.
WeFi is currently running most of its reporting and BI dashboards over Prism, using an off-the-shelf PC with a Xeon 5520 CPU, 64GB RAM and Windows 2003 as its server.
"One of our primary assets at WeFi is our data. Prism is a key weapon in our strategic arsenal," said Amit Shaked, Vice President, Products and Marketing, WeFi. "Business users have extensive autonomy to create and modify their own dashboards and reports, dramatically shortening the time it takes to get new data insights."
"SiSense is rewriting the rules of the BI industry by making powerful and scalable BI available to any company or department, large or small, without the need for large up-front investments, time-consuming implementation projects or prior BI experience," says Elad Israeli, CEO of SiSense. "WeFi is a perfect case in point, as a company which bases its key strategic decisions on daily analysis of large and rapidly growing amounts of data."
