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 Computing

Sigma is well suited for not only ad-hoc report creation but also scheduled report distribution. The seamless integration of databases and efficiency at which Sigma runs makes it a go-to choice over other tools. The only scenario I've found Sigma to be less appropriate is when dealing with row-by-row dataset analysis. For example, if you need to look at a list of transactions and use row-level formulas (like countif in Excel), Sigma is not the tool (although it could just be a lack of knowledge for the user).

Cons

Databox

  • Some types of data can only be reported on for 1-2 months back. Unless I'm misunderstanding the function of the software this seems really weird. I can't figure out how to report on Activities more than 2 months ago

Sigma Computing

  • The interface is busy with multiple modes to accomplish similar tasks, so not always intuitive to do some tasks
  • While a more specific case of my first point, the relationship between different screen elements is particularly not obvious
  • On chart annotation, allowing comments that overlay chart data

      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

      Usability

      Databox

      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.

      Sigma Computing

      It has a clean and modern interface. However, it is not completely intuitive. I think it would be better and easier to navigate with more Windows style drop down menus and/or tabls. There is a significant learning curve, but that may be due in part to the technical nature of this type of software tool.

      Databox

      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.

      Sigma Computing

      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

      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

      Sigma Computing

      Sigma is like a unique combination of Excel and Tableau, in my experience. It combines both the heavy-duty data wrangling and data manipulation abilities of Tableau with the quickness and ease of use that Excel is known for having. I have relied on Excel a lot less now for ad hoc work since using Sigma, as I can just easily get what I need from Sigma rather than having to open it in Excel. We still have one minor data source that I use to download CSVS from and work into Excel as needed, but this is rare.
