Overall Satisfaction with Sigma Computing

We're using Sigma [Computing] as our data visualization tool - so all data passes back from Google Analytics and is then fed into Sigma.

It is being used by the entire organization.

We were unable to visualize data before through Google Analytics - we would just take the raw data and dump into excel. Now with Sigma [Computing] we can easily create tables and show data in a different way.
  • Easy Filtering
  • Easy worksheet organization
  • Easy to export data into a csv or excel
  • 150k limit for data exports
  • Having too much data makes worksheets run really slow
  • Data updates are not in real time
  • Data visualization
  • Data organization
As a first time Sigma user it was a little difficult at first when I began to use Sigma but once someone walks you through the process it's pretty simple to do quick data pulls.
N/A aside from pivot tables we haven't made many data visualizations
This has been greatly appreciated as different teams have their own folders in sigma so there is never any confusion on who's worksheet is who's. Also it ensures we're not always asking for worksheets to be duplicated or remade because we cannot find them - each worksheet will live in the individual team's own folder.
We have data spanning back to 2017 and there are many times that sigma freezes / takes a really long time to load the data - especially when we're adding filters into the mix. Overall I'd day Sigma is still faster than Google Analytics but I do think the speed could be improved.
I think Sigma [Computing] works alright, but I've used other solutions that I think are a bit more user friendly especially for non data folks who know SQL and can make updates to the worksheets. For example I think Tableau is a great visualization tool and is really easy for non data folks to use.
