Overall Satisfaction with Sigma Computing

We are using Sigma [Computing] to provide embedded dashboards to our customers in our product. Sigma [Computing] is also being used internally within our company by different departments to run day-to-day operations.

Pros

  • Sigma makes it extremely easy to embed dashboards in a secure manner within an application.
  • Sigma leverages the computing power and scalability of the underlying cloud data warehouse allowing it to process any amount of data with ease.
  • Sigma makes it extremely easy for non technical users to analyze data.

Cons

  • We would like to see Sigma be able to integrate with a source code control system, so that all our workbooks and dataset definitions can be checked in.
  • Adding to the first point, we would like to see Sigma use a typical source code branching methodology to allow development work to be promoted to production.
  • Sigma should be able to support language labels so that elements such as axis titles, report titles can be displayed in different languages based on the user.
  • Reduced time to develop and rollout pre-built dashboards for end users.
  • Rapid introduction of embedded analytics for our customers.
  • Significantly improved self-exploration capabilities for users.

Sigma makes it very easy for end users to explore, analyze and visualize data. The spreadsheet like interface is intuitive and requires no training for end users. This makes it easy for users to transition to using Sigma. Sigma is being used by a wide variety of departments in our company to run operations.
We are still in the early stages for this topic, but we have started using parameters to run what-if scenarios.
The following key factors led to the selection of Sigma:
  • Ease of implementing row-level security in embedded dashboards.
  • Ease of embedding; embedded explorations.
  • Integration with cloud data warehouses.
  • Ease of use for end users.
  • Cost.
Sigma is extremely well suited to be used with a cloud data warehouse. It allows users of all kinds (data scientists, engineers and end-users) to perform a range of functions: what-if analysis, visualizations, embedding to name a few.
