SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sigma Computing (“Sigma”), the fast and intuitive alternative to traditional business intelligence (BI), today launched Live Edit, an industry-first feature that allows users to create and analyze data together at the same time.
“Collaboration is the cornerstone of the future of analytics – we’re building a tool for the way people work – rather than forcing them to work around artificial boundaries,” said Mike Palmer, CEO of Sigma Computing. “Our Live Editing customers are seeing an adoption rate of over 90% by their users because our spreadsheet interface is accessible and intuitive for most professionals. Live editing adds incredible value by allowing these users to simultaneously work in a Sigma workbook at the same time, drawing on the power of all the data in the data warehouse.
Analytics has always been collaborative and cross-functional, but to date the category has only been collaborative asynchronously, and often only with data teams. Before they could analyze the data and prepare reports themselves, business users had to rely on data teams to prepare the data, then review and refine it in a back-and-forth process, a process that would take days or weeks to even fix the problem. simplest questions.
Sigma Computing solves this problem with Live Editing by allowing users to explore, build and iterate together directly and in real time with the most recent data available. Now, instead of having to wait for data teams to share limited static data and deal with constant back and forth to write and finalize reports, collaborators can communicate, coordinate and even tell stories together at the same time. Sigma’s Live Editing feature enables decision makers to make decisions directly in datasets anytime, anywhere and in collaboration with anyone.
Sigma’s new Live Edit feature is the only collaboration feature of its kind for data analysis directly linked to an organization’s data warehouse. With enterprise-grade scalability, security, and integrations with the ease of use of Google Sheets, there’s nothing else on the market. Live Edit allows teams of up to 20 people to work simultaneously in Sigma Workbooks to explore data, create presentations, and more, all in real time and in the cloud. Combined with Sigma’s built-in version history, Live Edit allows users to see what has changed and who made changes without the security risks or version control issues that come with legacy practices of working with extracted data and decentralized file sharing.
Sigma customers, including Migo, a cloud-based integrated lending platform that supports B2C merchants in emerging markets, have already achieved impressive results with early access to Live Edit enhancing the capabilities of their teams to provide deeper insights into data through collaboration.
“Live editing encourages a deeper understanding of our teammates’ analyses, as well as an increased responsibility to question and reinforce those analyses. Collaboration improves all aspects of data and search fluency in our organization,” said Joseph Bates, senior director, data platform, at Migo.
