Business intelligence startup SiSense has raised a $30 million third round of venture capital from DFJ Growth, as well as existing investors Battery Ventures, Genesis Partners and Opus Capital. The company has now raised $44 million since it launched in 2010. Like most analytics startups, SiSense promises nice visualizations and a user-friendly experience, but its major bragging point is fast data processing thanks to an architecture that takes full advantage of the processor’s cache rather than just DRAM or disk. The company appears to being growing impressively, too, claiming triple-digit customer growth and some big-name accounts.
SiSense has been growing like mad with its analytic database and BI software that’s designed to maximize the disk, memory and CPU on even small computers in the name of low latency.
Sandy is certainly living up to its promise as a destructive force, but it’s also serving as a teaching tool for companies whose business is big data. They’re releasing new dashboards, products and case studies demonstrating how data analysis before can save lives and money later.
