Overall Satisfaction with Sigma Computing

Sigma is a toll that works in the same way a spreadsheets work. But with data joining functionality similar to SQL and far easier to create visualizations. We chose Sigma because it makes data easy to access and use for a business user. IT resources are scarce for creating new reports and versions of reports.

Pros

  • Guides business type users through a JOIN
  • Allows for some types of data engineering in the dataset creation.
  • Provides instantaneous user help and support

Cons

  • The Join functionality in worksheets is incredibly useful but that same view is not available in worksheets. Is there a way to combine that?
  • Make the datasets about data engineering models. Leave worksheets to using those models and other data.
  • Improved self service for business users
  • Awareness of data availability

Previously users did not have access to the data that we are now providing through Sigma. Or they didn't have access they knew how to use. The only access was through sheets or BigQuery console.
Sigma allows IT to provide data from outside sources in a way that was not possible before.
This was not possible before
Easy entry tool that can grow with you as the data expertise and literacy grows within the org. Start up effort and cost is too high in the tools that are built for large corporate solutions.
Sigma is most useful in an environment where the busines user is data savvy. Data savvy is not only knowledge of the data but also has basic spreadsheet skills like knowing how to connect data with lookups. These environments often mean that they can pick up the skills needed to build their own visuals. So Sigma is possibly the only tool for a small company with limited data resources where the business teams needs to pick up some of the data load.
Sigma is also great for a big company where there is more demand for data discovery than the IT team has capacity.
