Sisense is disrupting the business intelligence market by simplifying business analytics for complex data.
Israeli business analytics company Sisense is opening a London office and hiring 50 employees in the UK. Sisense completed an $80 million financing round last month and is using some of the funds to expand its European operations.
Sisense is disrupting the business intelligence market by simplifying business analytics for complex data, allowing visual analysis and presentation of all types of enterprise data for companies of every size. The systems developed by the company are designed to make it easier to immediately discern information despite large amounts of data.
The opening of the London office follows significant client growth in the UK and globally, driven by increased demand for full-stack analytics solutions and a growing need for agile data-driven insights. Sisense is building on a sizeable European customer base with local UK clients such as Flight Centre, SDL, Motorola UK, and Rolls Royce Digital.
Sisense CEO Amir Orad said, “Sisense is fortunate to count so many top UK brands among its clients and we continue to see incredible growth given the accelerating European knowledge economy. There is massive adoption of Sisense globally, as the growing volume and complexity of data drives demand for analytics, and business agility. Once we had secured a strong leader for our UK operations, and our recent round of funding, we knew that London would lead our work with the European enterprises so we could further achieve local customers’ success.’
Richard Lack will head the London office as general manager. The technology industry veteran has held sales leadership positions at several top software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies including Google’s DoubleClick, ExactTarget, and SAP’s Gigya.
