About Sigma Computing

Sigma is a business intelligence and analytics software, which helps businesses securely connect with data warehouses and visualize data through charts and dashboards using SQL, JSON parsing, and more. The platform offers a spreadsheet-like interface and supports formulas, functions, and data representation using rows and columns.

It includes a variety of features such as real-time data analysis, collaborative data modeling, SQL authoring, DDoS protection, mobile device management, credential checking, and more.

Sigma offers security firewall, anomaly and threat detection, spoofing protection, DNS filtering, and phishing tests, allowing businesses to prevent unauthorized access and hack attempts. The solution also supports integration with various data warehouses and third-party applications including Snowflake, Google Big Query, Amazon Redshift, Stitch, Slack, Google Sheets, and more.

Incredibly Useful Tool for data analysis and workflow

Reviewed on 27/06/2019

Pros

The speed with which I'm able to pull together disparate data and generate some useful insights.

The Dashboard functionality has been particularly useful in creating reporting our teams can use with customers and prospects.

Cons

Version management and permissions. It's hard to keep everyone looking at the same version of a document, to view data, a document is created and generically named, so our folder system is getting very full and hard to navigate. Additionally, there's no way to tell if another user will be able to see a given document without asking them to try viewing it, and there's no way for them to request view access to that document.

I am obsessed with Sigma, by far my favorite BI tool I've used. It let me do calculations myself that would usually require whole cycles of data requests, and affords me much more flexibility.

Pros

* Ability to pull any data I need or want
* Complexity of calculations possible while being easy to use
* Seriously those grouping levels are VERY powerful

Cons

* Pivot tables are the one thing they haven't aced yet - you can make them but then to calculate cased on them you need to make a new dataset and then a new sheet. You can do pretty much all the same work with just levels though so I don't miss them too often.
* I wish my default permissions could be "public" - I'm never doing anything private, so why is that the default?
* Maps could use some work. I want to color-map countries, not just display dots

Reasons for Choosing Sigma Computing

Wanted more flexibility than we had with Looker at the time.

Reasons for Switching to Sigma Computing

I liked it most for the complexity and flexibility of computation that I could do easily within the platform. I think a combination of that and cost went into why the Data team (the final decision maker) went with them.

Great team and a good product

Reviewed on 20/10/2022

Pros

The team is very willing to grow and shape out any new improvements, they also have great turnaround. However, i love how it is a web application and easily integrates with databricks.

Cons

The functionality is somewhat funky sometimes, but they are constantly improving.

Overall I have access to more than our previous reporting system, which is a positive. However, as self serve as it is I wish connecting tables and validating was more straightforward as a user.

Pros

I like how customizable it is. From a good basic report I can move things around to suit my needs. In addition it has many options for how to export, which is great as I use excel for more complex files & google sheets for collaborating & sharing findings.

Cons

Load times to get to a report or filter can be killer for some reports that pull from many data sources, and have large amounts of information. The permissions are a bit annoying when a report is created for me by an admin, but I am the report owner (as it was made for my department), but I can't make my own changes (w/o admin privlidges) and archive the main one. In these cases, I have to request the admin to make the changes, or make a copy and publish my own report and again contact the admin to delete or move the report so that mine is the one the team goes to first.

It's growing on me!

Reviewed on 28/08/2022

Pros

It works! We used Chartio before and it was always timing out. Sigma is reliable and accurate.

Cons

The way it auto sizes objects is annoying. I also feel like you need more technical data analysis skills to do some common things (like a year over year comparison).
