Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon QuickSight

I'm likely to recommend it because it would become so native if other cloud services are based on AWS infrastructure, like our current setup. It is very seamlessly integrated with other services to feed in data for the visualization. In addition, supporting a reasonably large number of users concurrently is not an issue and should be able to scale horizontally as needed.

Sigma

It is well suited for analyzing large data sets, or bringing together several data sets in one place for analysis. The tools provided are very powerful. It is not good for people who want to start using it quickly with little experience. It is great when you need to be able to quickly export reports or data sets.

Pros

Amazon QuickSight

  • Lightweight and serverless BI tool that can be used for niche dashboards.
  • Its integration into other AWS Services is one of its most appealing features.
  • The low monthly cost is another benefit.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sigma

  • Easy to learn but with enough depth to appeal to more advanced BI users.
  • Constantly updating and improving the tool.
  • The parameter and filter functionality is on point. It makes creating enterprise quality reporting a breeze for our team.
  • The SQL writer is very straight forward and the fact you can write directly in SQL gives Sigma a huge leg up on other BI tools that use their own languages.

Cons

Amazon QuickSight

  • One of the primary challenges I've had with Amazon QuickSight so far is that some of the reports I want to build use data from different data sets. Instead of being able to put all of the information I want to see into one report.
  • Some of our Amazon QuickSight reports only update every 24 hours. It would be great to see that data in real-time.
  • I would remove the various time zones from Amazon QuickSight and only use the time zone we are in.
Megan Sullivan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sigma

  • It does not provide the same amount of features as the marketing leader such as tableau.
  • There are limited calculated fields.
  • A data quality tool can help visualize data before you analyse it , which are super helpful. So far it is not available in Sigma yet.

Because we are very satisfied with the product and would most likely renew because of the services it provides. It is a tool that you bring into your organization and let it change the way you analyze your data, present your data and share you date within the Respective teams

I use Sigma in my daily finance and accounting functions. I find that Sigma is pretty easy to use. There are certain reports that I used to email out to the Executives on a weekly basis. Since we have onboarded Sigma, the standard reports are auto emailed out on a weekly basis at a prescheduled time.

Support team is helpful in answering questions and providing help with using the UI. There are knowledgeable people within the support team.There are also good online support tools. There are significant community support resources available.There is however lack of a live support. It would be useful to have live phone number or chat to use.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon QuickSight

In our case, we are storing our large amount of data in the cloud so using QuickSight adds up to the performance of the reporting. We are using it as a secondary reporting tool so that a business user can generate their own report. We are using Tableau as our primary reporting tool.

Sigma [Computing] is the easiest to use. Visualizations and calculations can be created easily without writing code. It's super intuitive and also has nice charts and visuals. Sigma [Computing] also allows users to write their own SQL queries without having to learn another language to create reports. Other BI tools have their language or functions which users must learn before they are able to fully use the tool.
