A stable and easy-to-learn solution with an awesome support team
Pros and Cons
  • "The product is easy to learn."
  • "The product has some storage and SPICE data issues."

What is most valuable?

We can create visualizations programmatically, through CLI, and manually. This feature is not available in Tableau. The product is easy to learn.

What needs improvement?

REST API feature is not available in the product. If I want to show the whole visualization and data in a single URL, I can do it through Power BI and Tableau. I did not find it in QuickSight. The product has some storage and SPICE data issues. Achieving visualizations with huge data is possible in Tableau, but it is not possible in QuickSight.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for three months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The tool is stable.

How are customer service and support?

The technical support is awesome.

How would you rate customer service and support?

Positive

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Compared to Tableau, the product is not that good. However, it is a good product.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is not affordable. Recently, we had to create a dashboard programmatically, so I had to create some policies. AWS charged me more for it. The solution can be afforded by big companies, not by smaller ones.

What other advice do I have?

It’s a completely cloud-based system. I am using the cloud link provided by my organization. I directly access the tool through the URL. It is a good tool to learn. Overall, I rate the product a nine out of ten.

  • "There should be better connectors for different data sets."

With AWS, we work with multiple things, different versions in each area. In most of the areas, I believe we employ the latest version. 

We use Amazon QuickSight to provide data insights. 

What is most valuable?

The solution provides a good business intelligence service. The query and dashboard capabilities are entirely good. 

What needs improvement?

There should be better connectors for different data sets. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with AWS for four to five years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable.

Easy to use, stable, and cheap, but has limited features and visualizations and doesn't support dynamic refresh
Pros and Cons
  • "Amazon QuickSight can provide insights from the available data. It supports various rule types. We get the options of machine learning and insights, which are not available in other intelligence tools. It is easier to use, more stable, and cheaper than other solutions."
  • "It is a simple tool with limited features. Its visualization set is very limited, and it also has limited functionality. An intelligence tool should not be only for creating reports. Currently, we have to do all computational and mathematical operations outside. We should be able to do such operations in an intelligence tool like this. As an intelligence tool, it should support dynamic refresh. QuickSight currently supports the refresh at a minimum of one hour, and it is not suitable for dynamic dashboards that require frequent refreshes."

What is our primary use case?

I'm a Business Intelligence Developer. I use QuickSight for developing dashboards and reports. We have its latest version.

What is most valuable?

Amazon QuickSight can provide insights from the available data. It supports various rule types. We get the options of machine learning and insights, which are not available in other intelligence tools. 

It is easier to use, more stable, and cheaper than other solutions.

What needs improvement?

It is a simple tool with limited features. Its visualization set is very limited, and it also has limited functionality. An intelligence tool should not be only for creating reports. Currently, we have to do all computational and mathematical operations outside. We should be able to do such operations in an intelligence tool like this.

As an intelligence tool, it should support dynamic refresh. QuickSight currently supports the refresh at a minimum of one hour, and it is not suitable for dynamic dashboards that require frequent refreshes. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are a startup. We have around 100 plus users, and we have just five or six members for maintenance. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is quite fast. They are also very supportive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We started only with QuickSight, but I have experience with Tableau.

How was the initial setup?

Its initial setup is very easy as compared to other solutions. We just connect to QuickSight. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is simpler and cheaper than other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

It is a simple intelligence tool. It is quite simple as compared to other advanced intelligence available in the market. If you are working on real-time applications, such as Robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT), and want dynamic dashboards with frequent refreshes, then QuickSight is not a suitable option.

I would rate Amazon QuickSight a five out of ten based on my experience with other products.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

Reliable, scalable, and has a good user interface, but the pricing could be more competitive
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is the user interface."
  • "There could be an end-to-end pipeline for data cleaning as well as presenting it using different visualizations."

What is our primary use case?

I am a technology consulting service provider. 

We are system integrators that help my business customers as a system integrator and I use AWS Services on the machine learning and analytics side.

My area of work is mainly on artificial intelligence and machine learning.

I was using Amazon QuickSight to generate contacts and insights.

There are companies that have contact center operations in order to support their customer queries and to do any in-house analytics on the contact center's performance.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the user interface.

What needs improvement?

QuickSight is gradually adding new features, but it is not as mature as some of the other products on the market such as Tableau or Power BI.

The cost is something that could be improved, it should at least be competitive at least for a year until they get a good hold on the market penetration.

As I have not yet explored the solution to its fullest, It may already have this available, but what I would like to see is better, drag and drop based integration of the data sources into the Amazon QuickSight dashboard, so that you can automatically integrate it with different types of data cleaning tools.

There could be an end-to-end pipeline for data cleaning as well as presenting it using different visualizations.

For how long have I used the solution?

My knowledge is brief, I have only used this solution for two to three days.

We are not using the latest version, it would be two to three months before this.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Amazon Quicksight is scalable.

In our organization, I was the only one who was exploring it.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was easy. Because everything is on the cloud, it's all about integration.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I wouldn't say that it is an expensive product, but to stay competitive they would need to bring down the prices.

What other advice do I have?

I am planning to use this solution in the future.

I am going to use it by recommending it to my clients where I can suggest that they can explore Amazon QuckSight as one of their options for business intelligence reporting.

If the customer is satisfied with the pricing and other features compared to other products such as Tableau or Power BI, then I would go ahead and start analyzing.

I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Continuously evolving solution that enables insightful dashboards and visualizations to be built at speed
Pros and Cons
  • "One of the most valuable features of Amazon QuickSight has been the speed at which visualizations can be created."
  • "There is room for improvement in terms of the number of visualizations and dashboards that are available."

What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable features of Amazon QuickSight has been the speed at which visualizations can be created.

What needs improvement?

There is room for improvement in terms of the number of visualizations and dashboards that are available. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a stable solution that is always progressing and evolving. We have between 300 and 400 employees across three companies who use it.  

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable solution.

What was our ROI?

The ROI for QuickSight we have experienced is high. It has a higher ROI compared to Tableau due to its lower price. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The standard edition is free to use for exploration purposes while the enterprise edition needs to be paid for. The pricing for this solution is very reasonable. 

What other advice do I have?

For new users who use Amazon Redshift as their database, QuickSight is the best option for dashboards and reporting. 

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
