Sigma Computing Wins 2021 BIG Innovation Award

SAN FRANCISCO – January 12, 2021 – Sigma Computing, an innovator in cloud analytics and business intelligence (BI), has been named a winner in the 2021 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group. The annual awards program honors the organizations, products, and people that bring new ideas to life.

The company was selected for its dedication to challenging the status quo in the well-established BI market and delivering a product that expands access to more data types from myriad sources with unlimited scalability and flexibility while reducing costs and maintaining security, governance, and compliance standards. Since day one, Sigma has transformed how people explore data and empowered them to find the answers needed to make better, faster decisions. "At Sigma, we believe the future of data is in the cloud and that in order for a company to truly be data-driven every employee must have access to data, the ability to explore it on their own, and be able to find answers quickly,” said Sigma Computing CEO Mike Palmer. “Legacy BI tools, and even so-called modern BI tools, are unable to take advantage of the power the cloud offers because they simply weren’t built for the cloud nor are they able to deliver the ease-of-use that Sigma does with its instantly familiar spreadsheet-like interface. Sigma finally brings everyone together in a single tool where they can either work independently or collaborate on the analyses that propel businesses forward.”

Sigma was purpose-built for cloud data warehouses from day one, allowing it to easily match the performance, speed, and scale of Snowflake, Amazon Redshift, and Google BigQuery. Its spreadsheet-like interface makes it possible for anyone to analyze billions of rows of data, iterate on analyses, and add new data without starting from scratch. Harnessing the power of the cloud, Sigma enables collaboration, increases productivity, and maintains security, governance, and compliance standards. The cloud analytics and business intelligence solution has earned multiple awards, including Best SaaS for Small Business or SMEs from the SaaS Awards in 2020, the 2020 DEVIES Award for Best Innovation in Enterprise Solutions, and the Strata Data Award for Most Innovative Product in 2019. “More than ever, the global society relies on innovation to help progress humanity and make our lives more productive, healthy, and comfortable,” said the Business Intelligence Group Chief Operating Officer Maria Jimenez. “We are thrilled to be honoring Sigma Computing as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”

Sigma Computing has raised $58M in venture capital to date and earned a spot on the coveted CNBC 2019 Upstart 100 List. The company has also been recognized for its outstanding culture by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Best Places to Work 2020 list, Inc.’s Best Workplaces 2020 list, and the Bay Area News Group’s Top Workplaces 2020 list.
