Overall Satisfaction with Sigma Computing

We use Sigma as an analytics platform for our citizen data analysts. Outside the core data team, everyone in the company is able to get access to Sigma if they want. This is great because we can leverage SQL and query our data warehouse rather than exporting CSVs and spreadsheets to create our presentations and reports. I use Sigma regularly to create charts/dashboards that reflect my KPIs and objectives.
  • Dashboard & Chart management is easy.
  • Dashboard parameters work well.
  • SQL Editor is decent.
  • SQL Editor could be better.
  • Dashboard loading could be optimized.
  • Exported reports are only in PDF which can be hard to read.
  • Saved hours of work by automating some reporting.

More people are able to access and analyze data than without Sigma. Using just the big query editor is a pain and really difficult to share with other employees. Sigma gives us a place to save and organize the analytics work we've all done.
Sigma is important for this, but the native big query editor is often good enough for ad hoc analysis. I'll use Sigma when I need to share my findings and clean up the presentation more than just a screenshot of a query result.
When I needed an analytics environment to do my own data work, Sigma was available to me. This is great because our data team strictly locks down our Looker environment, which is mostly used for executive reporting. Without Sigma, all my data questions would need to be evaluated and prioritized against everyone else in the company. Now I can go in at any time to get what I need.
