Overall Satisfaction with Sigma Computing

Sigma Computing allows us to give our employees easy access to our data. We use this data to determine marketing channel efficacy, measure the success of new product features, and track usage information. We have set up Sigma Computing as the central location to combine data from the product, marketing spend, and revenue to give us a holistic view of LTV and CAC. The spreadsheet-like interface has made it easy for non-technical users to get up to speed quickly and makes it approachable to dig into the deeper capabilities.
  • Quick creation of core KPI overview dashboards
  • Approachable for users new to data analysis
  • Analysis and Exploration of large datasets without knowing SQL
  • Support documentation is still being developed for many use cases
  • Improved access for non-technical users
  • Faster data exploration in large tables

Sigma has made it easier for non-technical users to lead their own data explorations. This has allowed us to spread out and speed up our data analysis across the board.
Sigma's ability to deal with large tables has helped speed up our analyses and ultimately our ability to quickly make decisions.
  • Chartio (discontinued)
We migrated to Sigma after using Chartio for about 5 years. In almost every way Sigma has been an upgrade on Chartio, most notably in its ability to handle large tables. We selected Sigma because we wanted to shift some of the data analysis to less technical team members, and that worked out as expected.
Sigma Computing is great for small teams that don't yet have a dedicated data team as it allows both technical and non-technical users to quickly dive into data. This is particularly true if people are familiar with excel, as the analysis and limitations are very similar. I suspect for teams with a dedicated data team or where most of the users would be people who are adept with SQL, it might feel limiting.
