Databox

I believe Databox can be an asset for any company. We are a small company, but I can see the value for large companies too. Databox is a great fit for departments or organizations that need to put their data into a readable form without needing a ton of reports. Databox allows you to save time and put together a nice report without having to do too much extra work. Once it is set up, it basically runs on its own at the frequency you set. I personally receive a daily report and have it sent to the respective people on the day of our meeting so we can quickly review it.

Sigma

Sigma is great for organizations that want to give their business users access to generate their own insights from the data warehouse without having to go through Engineering or the Data Team. The product is a great fit if you already have usable data and you want to derive insights into a straightforward interface. It would be less appropriate for organizations that want a data cleaning or data transformation layer integrated with their BI platform, or for cases where very complex, advanced visualizations are needed.

Pros

Databox

  • Automatically connects data without you having to think about it. I had another reporting tool that required me to set up all of the data connections for HubSpot from scratch and it was such a pain that I basically had to give up. I'm no SQL expert. Databox just worked.
  • The report wizard has good built-in boards that are great places to start building a view tailored to your specific needs
  • Has a head-spinning amount of customization options and potential data sources.

  • Clean UI makes the powerful system approachable and inviting to begin sandbox testing.
  • Modular approach. You can pivot and pull and plug away so much. The permutations are endless with lots of visualizations and integrations to keep the data and insights flowing.
  • Great for multi-user and getting people set-up across the org.

Cons

Databox

  • Lacks integration with several tools we use for digital marketing.
  • Can be a bit complicated to get everything set up.
  • The white label/company branding requires the business plan which is very expensive with not enough value add.

Sigma

  • Sigma's mechanism for defining and using filters in reports and dashboards is very far behind their competitors. Filter behavior is often inefficient and counterintuitive.
  • The queries Sigma generates for non-trivial operations seems to be relatively inefficient, and it makes extensive use of machine-generated column identifiers that make it difficult to diagnose which parts of the query are causing trouble.

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

Databox is an intuitive, well-designed platform that can be used by non-technical marketers. It is easy to learn, and while set up takes time, usability is high and the team has enjoyed creating custom dashboards and clients have also given us great feedback regarding its usability and value. While other BI tools are much more complex to navigate, Databox is a breeze.

My learning curve with Sigma was very quick but also very steep. When I first looked at it, I was rather confused by the new paradigm but after playing with it for about 15-20 minutes it "clicked" and suddenly I was performing the most powerful non-handwritten-SQL queries of my career, and everything since then - visualisations, etc - have been a breeze. Their support team is also immensely helpful when I have been unable to find things, with chat right there in the app at all times (unlike some companies that like to bury it or hide it behind a crappy kb interface).

It depends, it loads quickly for smaller dashboards but when loading larger amounts of data it takes more time to do so

I have really enjoyed using Databox and have seen the value of it in many ways. They also continue to improve the functions of it and grow their integrations and templates. I look forward to continuing to use Databox in the future, potentially even finding ways to incorporate it into other departments to help them with reporting as well.

I must remain somewhat neutral on a support rating as I've had very limited exposure to their support organization. That said, in the self-service realm, there are a ton of resources/articles to help guide users though nearly every situation (e.g., understanding syntax, how to add basic objects/filters, etc.). Sigma Computing offers a vast collection of support articles (all fairly well formatted/written), and it's overall usage/adoption have allowed for a number of third-party resources and forums to spring up.

Alternatives Considered

Databox

Databox is unique in its ability to report from multiple data sources. Google Analytics is the standard when it comes to web metrics, but it's just one of the tools that integrates with Databox. Tableau is fantastic for data visualizations and reporting, but it's much more expensive than Databox, so it's not ideal for everyone. Tableau is also superior with customization
Daniel Berry | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sigma

Sigma Computing is far and away more intuitive to navigate, much easier to look at, and seems to put all of the data and tools I need at my fingertips. I no longer need to dive deep into NetSuite to build reports, update them, or find data for one-off customers. This saves time, stress, and frustration. It aids quick conversation in meetings as well.

Return on Investment

Databox

  • Honestly, Databox has been a bit of a pain for us these last few months. There are some things it just can't provide us, and some of our clients don't like it. Sometimes it takes too much effort to create a Databoard than it's worth. And since we're a HubSpot partner agency, we're limited to making smart lists for a lot of what we're looking for.
  • On the other hand, high-level reporting is awesome. And they're always updating the tool with new templates/features to stay ahead of the game.
Stephanie Tran | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sigma

  • Adoption of data to make decisions and measure goals.
  • Build-out of complex reports (regressions/cohort analysis) with relatively low levels of learning training; easy to use.
  • Drive-up run time (cost) on data warehouse cluster usage; both good and bad in that there's more usage of the data, but also no caching so a lot of extra unnecessary queries being run.
