    Noetix

    If you desire to 'empower' employees to create or edit their own reports, Noetix is a great tool, though I am not particularly an 'empowerment' person. In my experience most people have enough work of their own, so to tell them they now have to create their own reports can cause problems. If someone is available, like I am, to create the reports based on user requirements, then the report can be shared with the user and they can make changes as needed. I have several users who use the same report over and over for slightly different applications, and they are happy to make the small alterations, but creating whole new reports can seem like a daunting task. I tell my users I don't want them to become frustrated. If they want to try on their own, fine, but don't waste more than half an hour, and if you start to get frustrated, stop and IM me. Ninety-nine times out of 100 I already have a report that will give them exactly what they need. I've done extensive training, and find it's quite easy for users to pick up

    Joining large datasets from your company's ERP or other internal systems is a great use case for Sigma. This will allow people within the company to analyze historical trends in the data and inform the forecast. I'd also recommend using Sigma to create visual dashboards for higher-level executives. This tool seems to have the best performance when it comes to large datasets. I don't think Sigma is in the position to replace ad-hoc analysis done in Excel that requires the maximum level of flexibility with the ability to modify formulas easily on the fly. The formulas in Excel are also much more extensive and are much better for sensitivity analysis.

    Pros

    Noetix

    • Noetix makes reporting easy. Users can combine vtables (the Noetix term for its views), add or delete columns, add filters or parameters, sort, add totals to columns, all from an easy to use interface. It comes with a very large number of already written reports for all areas of Oracle reporting, but it also allows for custom vtables to be written, for Oracle or any database, to expand the number of available reports.
    • Noetix has an Excel add-in that is marvelous. It eliminates the need to run a report in the web application and export to Excel. The add-in can run very large reports, up to a million lines. Once a report is run in Excel, it can be saved, and then refreshed whenever needed. It's a really good tool.
    • Noetix is flexible. Joins can be added to existing Noetix vtables and also to custom vtables, to give users a large amount of data configurations to choose from. It also allows users to create calculated fields to any report.
    • Noetix is easy to administer. Users can be added or removed and grouped by the level of permission. Although, in our case, it validates against Oracle, the level of security is dictated by Noetix.

    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

    Noetix

    • I like the fact that the output is standard, but I would like to be able to move columns around on the output screen, rather than having to go back to the editing screen, move the columns, then rerun the report.
    • Drag and drop of columns would be nice on the edit screen. Currently if you add a column to a report, it automatically goes to the bottom. Relocation of the column has to be done a line at a time. I would prefer to be able to grab the field I want from those available, and drop it into the report where I want it.
    • When adding a filter (or parameter), the available fields automatically come up in alphabetical order, but on the columns screen, they don't. They come up in the order they actually are in the query. That means, when creating custom vtables, to have the fields in alphabetical order, one must put them that way. It would be nice if Noetix put the fields in alphabetical order for the user.

    Sigma

    • The user interface had at least one big change in the past two years, which was confusing.
    • I would like to be able to create and run report on the fly, instead of having to schedule them.
    • Better navigation using tabs and menus.

    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

    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

    Noetix

    I believe Noetix is much easier to use than either Crystal Reports or InfoMaker. When I worked with InfoMaker I used to say it took 5 minutes to get the data and 5 hours (and sometimes days) to make it look good. The same can be true for Crystal Reports. Noetix has a standard format, and most people export to Excel anyway. Who prints reports? So formatting is not all that important.

    Sigma

    Sigma is the first software that I have used that allows me to easily access data tables. I do not have other experience with similar software, but I do like the fact that Sigma doesn't require extensive SQL knowledge. I am not sure if other similar software will have that capability and ease of use.
