A new press release states, “Sisense, disrupting the BI market by simplifying business analytics for complex data, announces the launch of Sisense Pulse, which provides proactive, smart and easily consumable notifications about a user’s most important business events, in real time when changes occur. Sisense Pulse leverages machine learning technology to analyze and learn data patterns to detect and proactively alert users to anomalies, inspiring business users to take action. This new alerting system deeply personalizes the BI experience, and makes it even easier for users to track the KPIs that matter most to their business. With Sisense Pulse, business users are given the power to automate KPI tracking in a systematic way, removing the need to review and monitor multiple dashboards and run manual analyses to identify outliers. This feature enables business users to be more in tune with their key KPIs, and arms them with the insights they need to immediately take action when an anomaly occurs.”

The release goes on, “Sisense Pulse is able to detect anomalies without users having to define outliers and variations at the outset. By leveraging machine learning technology, Sisense Pulse learns key metrics based on historical data to determine what is normal and what an acceptable variation is at any given moment. If that metric varies significantly from what the system has learned it should be, it sends a smart alert in real time, inspiring the user to take action. ‘We feel that Pulse is one more example of how machine learning enabled BI can be transformative for Envision, and for our customer’s businesses,’ said Todd Knapp, CEO of Envision Technology Advisors, LLC. ‘Sisense does an incredible job of turning silos of data into consumable intelligence. Adding alerting helps us to take immediate action on that intelligence. However, adding machine learning-based alerts allows us to react to patterns of change that we might otherwise never notice’.”
