Overall Satisfaction with Sigma Computing

Sigma is used for visualizing and reporting on cybersecurity data. For example, tracking how our computing environments meet our standards, and tracking that partner teams are meeting SLAs.
  • It's easy to get started.
  • Good for cross-organization sharing.
  • You can send scheduled reports over Slack.
  • It's tough to manage large amounts of dashboards.
  • You can't pivot on datapoints within dashboards.
  • There's some small UI flakiness occasionally.
  • It has very positive ROI, and can change conversations, from gut-level to data-driven.
  • Teams that couldn't get started with other, harder to use BI tools, were able to embrace and do wonderful things with Sigma.
It's easy to pick a table, pick columns, create a worksheet, and then add visualizations to the dashboard. We've seen non-technical users have great success with it.
Very responsive: we use the chat in the window for fast support. You can implement improvements based on suggestions.
It's much easier to use, and has what I need. Others had too steep of a learning curve for people outside the data team.
It's very well suited to working with data in Snowflake, especially for those who are not experts at SQL. It's also good for reporting to executives and replacing Excel spreadsheets everywhere. It's less appropriate with weakly structured data.
