        Sigma Computing is Vendor of Merit in Analytics and Data Buyers Guide

        We are happy to share some insights about Sigma Computing drawn from our latest market research, Ventana Research Buyers Guide: Analytics and Data, which assesses how well vendors’ offerings meet buyers’ requirements.  

        We recently published five Ventana Research 2023 Analytics and Data Buyers Guides, an assessment of technology vendors and products that provide individual and combined VR_BG_AD_Meritanalytics and data, augmented analytics, collaborative analytics, embedded analytics and mobile analytics and platform support. 

        At Ventana Research, we continue to believe that, for most use-cases, there is a clear choice for analytics and data platforms for any use in your organization. We developed five technology assessments and buyers guides to focus on overall analytics and data requirements as well as specific augmented analytics, collaborative analytics, mobile analytics and embedded analytics use-cases. 

        In all of our Buyers Guides, we utilize a structured research methodology called the Value Index that includes evaluation categories designed to reflect real-world criteria incorporated in a request for proposal (RFP) and vendor selection process for analytics and data. We evaluated Sigma Computing and 21 other vendors in seven categories, five relevant to the product (adaptability, capability, manageability, reliability and usability) and two related to the vendor (TCO/ROI and vendor validation). To arrive at the Value Index rating for a given vendor, we weighted each category to reflect its relative importance in an RFP process, with the weightings based on our experience and on data derived from our benchmark research on analytics and data.  

        In the overall Analytics and Data Buyers Guide, our analysis classified Sigma Computing as a vendor of Merit, ranking 22nd in the overall research at 43.6%. Sigma Computing’s bestVentana_Research_BG_AD_Sigma_Computing_2023 performance came in Customer Experience at 32.7%, ranking 20th, due in part to its 20th-place ranking in Validation.
