New Features

  1. Sisu integration with Looker

    • You can now kick-off a Key Driver Analysis from a Looker Dashboard. This makes it easier to understand “why” your metrics are changing if you use Looker to understand the high-level view of your metric. Sisu automatically creates the metric and analysis based on the measure and dimensions defined in the LookML of the Explore. Video Demo below.

    • Setup Looker integration with Sisu, instructions here

    • Demo Video: Start a Key Driver analyses from Looker:

Feature Enhancements

  1. API Updates API Key Generator in the UI: Users can now generate API keys directly from the UI. See demo below:

  1. API Documentation

    Released API documentation here. This makes it easier for users to understand our APIs and build the scripts/apps they need.

  2. [Beta] Consume Trend Detection results

    Just like KDA consumption, customers can now consume Trend Detection results via Sisu APIs. See documentation here. (You will need to select Trend Detection analyses on the right panel)

  3. [Beta] “PySisu” SDK to consume Sisu API results

    We just released an initial SDK to show Sisu facts in a clean table view. SDKs make it easier for customers to consume Sisu APIs and build the scripts/apps needed to automate ACTIONS from Sisu insights. You can find it here:

  4. [Beta] Scripts for exporting Sisu Facts into Snowflake

    Leveraging the Sisu API and Airflow, we now have scripts to help customers export Sisu facts programmatically into Snowflake (other CDWs can be done on request). Find them on Github:

  5. Trend Detection

    • Updated chart tooltip to show trend slopes before and after trends change

    • Improved the trend detection algorithm to truncate the number of facts being returned to the web app based on fact quality (determined by various factors such as slope and impact)

  6. Dimension name styling

    Updated fact factor styling in Trends and KDAs so that dimension names are easier to read and percentile range details are more concise

  7. Easier Navigation

    • It is now possible to filter by “analysis type” on the project’s analysis-list page


    • Analysis list navigation dropdown now shows details of the analysis type making it easier to quickly hop to the analyses you need


    • Dashboard list can now be sorted by “last run”.


    • When you create a new dashboard, it now lands you at the new dashboard, rather than having to navigate yourself.

  8. SQL Editors

    • Removed the unsaved “untitled query” from the list of sql queries.

    • Query Preview - now we freeze row headers on top for the table preview.


    • SQL Queries in the side panel are now sorted by ‘Last Edited’

  9. Admin Settings

    Member role can be changed to Admin from the UI.

Bug Fixes

We fixed over 30 bugs recently! Here are a few major ones:

  1. SQL Editor

    Better error reporting for SQL queries — Customers get the correct line number in which the error occurs when there is an error in the query.

  2. Trend Detection

    • When creating a Key Driver Analysis from Trend Detection Analysis, filters are preserved and applied to the new analyses
    • Dynamic filters and summary periods now populate for all trend detection analysis
  3. Dashboards

    Fixed dashboard tile resize handle icon (previously was not rendering)
