This documentation is intended for product managers and developers. For product managers who want to enhance their products and applications with Sisense embedded analytics, this section describes the features and functionality Sisense offers as part of an embedded analytics solution. For developers who embed Sisense in the application, this section describes how to embed Sisense analytics.

OEM Deployments

OEM deployments include rebranding and embedding.

Rebranding Sisense

Sisense enables you to customize the Sisense UI to display your company's unique branding and suit your company’s look and feel.

White Labeling

Sisense white labeling enables you to replace the Sisense logo and name, change the color palette used by the application, customize the emails sent by the system, and more. When white labeling Sisense, you completely rebrand a Sisense deployment for your customers. They aren't necessarily aware that the analytics they are accessing is actually a Sisense server.

Customizing the User Interface

Sisense enables you to customize the Sisense UI to display your company's unique branding. Update brand and text colors, fonts, and more to match your desired look and feel.

Embedding Sisense

If you have your own web application, you can embed Sisense within it. Sisense supports embedding the full Sisense application, including the data modeling, analytics, and administration areas. You can also choose to embed specific dashboards and widgets into your application and you can embed widgets within web pages.

Embedding Options

Each organization has their own requirements when white labeling, rebranding, and embedding Sisense’s analytic solution and BI capabilities based on their use-case.

iFrames

This is the quickest and easiest way to embed Sisense dashboards into your web application. Using iFrames is a great solution for simple embedding use-cases and Sisense has built-in support for it. You can even append query parameters to the dashboard’s URL to adjust the UI, as needed.

For implementation information, see the Sisense Dev site.

Sisense Embed SDK

Note: The Sisense Embed SDK is supported by Sisense for Windows V8.1, or later, and by Sisense for Linux V8.2.1, or later.

The Sisense Embed SDK enables tighter integration with the host application with minimal code. Delivered as a JavaScript library, the Embed SDK minimizes developer resources to manage complex communication between the host application and embedded analytics. The Embed SDK is an abstracted embedded interface that wraps an iFrame element. With the Sisense Embed SDK you can programmatically:

The SDK removes all the hassle and risk and significantly speeds up development and integration.
