Sigma [Computing] is by far the easiest to use and most powerful business intelligence tool that I've ever used. It really puts the power of huge databases in the hands of business users in an interface that is familiar, easy to learn and easy to understand.

Zoho Analytics

If you're looking at having powerful dashboards, [Zoho Analytics (formerly Zoho Reports)] is the way to go. It is very easy to use and can create quite sophisticated reports given the ease and speed of us. Capability to obtain aggregated stats without programming is really good.

Pros

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.
Jordan Seib | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Analytics

  • Very good bang for the buck, especially if you pre-handle your data before uploading so you're not reliant on the Zoho SQL syntax of raw tables and have fewer, wider rows.
  • Reasonable assortment of chart types.
  • Usable design surface, especially for a fully web based system.
  • Reasonably intuitive organization of content types.
  • Nice handling of aggregation functions.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Analytics

  • Reports was challenging to understand initially and some of their documents were out of date so importing did not work.
  • It would be nice if the importing instructions were a little more clear for the layman as not all businesses can have an IT department or the like to set up software like this.
  • Due to insufficient descriptions, it can be unclear as to what a report is describing or displaying to you.

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

Sigma is a modern business intelligence (BI) and analytics application built for the cloud. Sigma provides live access to cloud data warehouses using an intuitive spreadsheet interface empowering business experts to ask more of their data. Sigma is self-service analytics as it was meant to be.

Zoho Analytics in its general functionality is a perfect program, which issues timely reports, after conducting an extensive business data evaluation. Also, the simplicity of Zoho Analytics is a form of attraction, not forgetting that some of the analytical programs even requires some coding, which is not the case with the program

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.

The support team is honestly not that great. At times, it seems as if members of our own team know more about the product than the support team. They must not have a lot of training or the turnaround is quick

Alternatives Considered

Sigma

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.

Zoho Analytics

Zoho [Analytics (formerly Zoho Reports)] is a simple and clean tool to use to provide reports that can understand and interpret your data. This allows us to easily establish goals and because it is so easy to use I prefer Zoho vs other providers. There is not a tool out there that is easier or more simple to use at such a great price as well.

Return on Investment

Sigma

  • Sigma has allowed business users to vastly increase their access to data, driving much more data-driven decision-making.
  • Sigma has freed up the data team from routine data-gathering, allowing the team to focus on building higher-level tools and products that unlock value for the company.
Peter Jaffe | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Analytics

  • Despite the high monthly cost, there has still been positive ROI because it has helped us save time and not have to spend all the time creating the data and charts from scratch for our reports.
  • Have not had as much success with another BI application, so definitely a positive ROI.
