Sisense, the leading AI-driven platform for infusing analytics everywhere, has announced the appointment of Gilad Katz as Senior Vice President, Engineering. Gilad will lead the company’s global engineering and development department, which spans Kiev, the U.S.A. and Israel, and leverage his background in building SaaS architecture to propel Sisense further ahead of competitors as one of the only cloud-agnostic and cloud-native analytics vendors on the market.

“Gilad is an innovative engineering leader with an impressive track record of scaling and leading high performing teams and developing cloud-centric solutions that support large scale production systems and serve customers’ most complex technical needs,” Amir Orad, CEO of Sisense said. “Gilad truly shares Sisense’s value to be customer-obsessed and his vast SaaS experience aligns with our mission to help businesses infuse analytics everywhere, at cloud scale.”

Gilad has more than 20 years of experience leading large scale engineering, both in enterprise SaaS companies as well as in early-stage start-ups. In his most recent role, Gilad led the R&D and Product teams at AppsFlyer, where he grew the engineering department from 60 engineers to more than 300, developing one of the industry’s top Cloud 100 mission-critical SaaS production systems that brought the company over $200 million in annual revenue, serving over 10,000 customers and over 6,000 technology partners.

“I am thrilled to bring my experience in engineering to the fast-growing, world-class team here at Sisense,” Gilad Katz, Senior Vice President, Engineering at Sisense said. “Sisense has incredible momentum and I am fortunate to join such an exceptional business that saw the need for the cloud early on. I look forward to helping Sisense continue to expand and develop leading technologies that transform businesses around the world.”

IDC predicts 80% of enterprises will speed up their shift to a cloud-centric infrastructure and cloud applications twice as fast as before the pandemic. The Sisense Fusion platform provides businesses the analytics foundation they need to transform their business inside and out and deliver AI-powered insights to employees and customers, at the right time, every time.

The Sisense Fusion Platform covers two key use cases: Sisense Fusion Embed, allowing the ability to infuse fully white-labelled analytic experiences into customer applications and workflows at scale, and also Sisense Fusion Analytics which does the same with employee-facing applications. Both use cases go beyond standard business intelligence by allowing all skill levels of employees and customers to analyze data and build customized experiences around the value of actionable intelligence.

The platform goes beyond the dashboard and helps customers simplify analytic complexity, build customizable experiences and infuse analytics everywhere with AI-powered insights. The result of this architecture provides a unique level of agility, flexibility and lower cost of ownership – from data flexibility to scale to analytical experience to extensibility to cloud to AI.

Sisense has a growing suite of local UK customers including Gousto, YourDMS and Learning Pool.
