Secure, Collaborative BI and Analytics for All
(132 Ratings) Write Review

Sigma is the next-generation of analytics for cloud data warehouses with a familiar spreadsheet-like interface that gives business experts the power to ask any question of their data no matter the query. When users take action in Sigma’s spreadsheet-like UI, Sigma automatically translates them into perfect SQL. All queries are run live against the cloud data warehouse, and the results are passed back to Sigma. Analyze data using Sigma’s familiar spreadsheet-like UI and formulas, and let Sigma do the rest. Sigma auto-translates all front-end actions into perfect SQL on the back-end. Unlike legacy BI and analytics tools, Sigma never moves, stores, caches, or copies your data. Say goodbye to data extracts and give teams complete yet secure access to insights.

(Reviewed on 10 September 2020) "Extremely valuable product!"

What do you like best?

Love the UI and the way the program is able to synthesize data in a way that's easy to understand. It's been an invaluable resource for myself and the sales team to measure success, where improvements are needed, and forecasting for future months and quarters.

What do you dislike?

There is a steep learning curve, but it becomes manageable.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for Analytics, this is your product!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Synthesizing data from many different parts of the organization in a way that others can clearly and easily grasp. I've realized that understanding data isn't so difficult when you have Sigma!

(Reviewed on 10 September 2020) "Great tool for data analysis and exploration"

What do you like best?

Sigma is a versatile data lake that can accommodate multiple database sources.

What do you dislike?

Sigma prefixes table names to differentiate database sources, but sometimes this causes confusion between cross-functional business units when multiple units derive critical insights from the same data lake.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Sigma to analyze the success of our software features across key user metrics. Sigma has enabled us to rapidly iterate on software deployment and deploy to specific cohorts of users based on real-life feedback.

(Reviewed on 02 June 2020) "Great tool for visual feedback."

What do you like best?

The ease of use. Sigma enabled me to get real time information of how my product was performing. I like how easy it is to work with the data and when there are complex SQLs that are needed the tool allows me to play with the same. Whenever product teams have a question, it's super simple to spin up a sigma worksheet and target what is needed.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I need to create intermediate columns with filters to get a better view of what's needed, rather than using the data aggregation itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have your data pipeline already established and need a tool to take advantage of that. Sigma is a really easy and user friendly tool to get insights.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using Sigma to get information about how new products developed at clover are doing and to get stats on sources of revenue.

We use Sigma as a feedback tool to see how a product is doing, track changes in spending patterns and revenue sources across merchants .

(Reviewed on 08 August 2019) "Intuitive and powerful"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, configure and personalize. Also, a great support staff.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything functionally but better accessibility to shared docs would be nice. I guess I can just put them under favorites?

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking efficiency and timing, we're able to target and design optimal operational procedures.

What do you dislike?

The naming convention of items, but that has more to do with our company I believe.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Metrics, and audits

(Reviewed on 06 August 2019) "Sigma has been invaluable at getting data faster"

What do you like best?

I like being able to streamline internal process and Sigma helps with this. It has allowed me to put together reporting dramatically faster! There is also good resources when our team struggles to fix something which is another asset to Sigma.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes pages can take a while to load but that is just due to the amount of data we have I'm sure.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has made business reviews much faster! This has allowed for better process on my end.
