Sigma is being used by many departments at our company including Accounting, Finance, Treasury, Cash Management, IT. The data we surface in Sigma allows many different business users to analyze company data without having to request it from internal groups within the company. Historical financial data from the GL is the most heavily used dataset in Sigma and was previously only available by query out of our ERP system. Now people throughout the company can self-service and do their own trend analysis on financial items that relate to their business units. Other departments are loading their own data in Sigma and utilizing Sigma's powerful data shaping technology to analyze and share datasets with other colleagues at the company.

Sigma [Computing] is arguably used by the whole organization. We have lots of viewers, but very few regular users. As far as I can tell, Sigma [Computing] was selected on the basis of its usefulness in gatekeeping data from the organization, rather than encouraging transparency. In my assessment, Sigma [Computing] makes it extraordinarily difficult to find reporting and analysis that has already been done... which is useful if you're on the gatekeeping side of the gatekeeping-vs-transparency trade-off spectrum.

It addresses the problem but allows for efficient pulling of different types of data. Our company has different groups of data sets stored in the database, Sigma Computing allows us to pull particular, relevant data for clients and daily tasks. We have shared scripts that pull from different tables and gather together pieces of information in an organized and sorted layout. I occasionally will make a pivot table or chart within Sigma Computing but usually download information as a spreadsheet.

Sigma [Computing] is our BI tool for internal reporting/dashboarding and data-driven decision making. We use it primarily for sales, marketing, inventory, and operational needs, but finance and other departments also use it. It enables us to answer ad hoc business questions, build dashboards for repeated, frequent use, and other analytics and monitoring.

Sigma [Computing] is currently being used the the central data analytics and visualization tool for all facets of our business. We've integrated it with Snowflake, which houses data across all critical business systems. Sigma [Computing] is the user facing tool available to tap into those data blocks, serving the needs per department

We started utilizing Snowflake cloud data warehouse and needed a client-face visualization tool. We've been able to customize the UI to make it feel like it's a part of our platform. So far clients are loving it and they didn't have to wait too long to get all the new reporting and data tools.

We use Sigma [Computing] for all reporting needs from selling and returns, to inventory management and customer engagement. It has been an extremely useful product for all departments as we are able to customize all of the necessary data for whatever project we are trying to analyze. What's even better is you don't have to know how to code to create your own worksheet!

We use Sigma [Computing] to create dashboards and reports to allow the organization to access data from our data warehouse. This allows users to make better decisions bases on data. We also use Sigma [Computing] to push data to Google Sheets - which helps improve manual processes and ensures that we can always have up to data in these sheets.

We use Sigma [Computing] to pull in data and create automated reporting from Snowflake. This creates an easy way to parse the data that lives in Snowflake. Sigma [Computing] is incredibly fast and does so many things that Excel by itself is simply not equipped to do. The amount of data it is able to pull in quickly is remarkable.

It is being used across the company. It is our primary Business Intelligence tool and it allows us to surface reporting in our app. All of our reporting and dashboards are presented through Sigma, both internally and externally.

Sigma has been great for creating reports of financial data and corresponding visualizations. We've been using it for reporting payment and invoicing data. It helped consolidate the data across multiple data silos.

Sigma Computing is being used to analyze data reported by a network of android-based devices in the field, and the manufacturing info for those devices. In particular, my team uses it to track errors or issues that are reported. Sigma allows us to see trends for issues as they arise and predict future failure rates.
