Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the most valuable features of Amazon QuickSight has been the speed at which visualizations can be created.""The solution is simple to implement.""From an analytics perspective, it's really good for self-service analytics.""The most valuable feature of Amazon QuickSight is its connectivity with other Amazon services.""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.""A valuable feature of Amazon QuickSight is that it's a cloud-native service provided by AWS. As all platforms within my company run on AWS, that's the leverage of Amazon QuickSight. Amazon QuickSight is also easy to use, and I find the native connectors from AWS valuable as well.""The query and dashboard capabilities are entirely good.""The ease with which it integrates with different data sources is most valuable. Especially when everything is on AWS, it is easy to connect to the data source and organize different dashboards."

"The product is very mature. It's quite robust and an excellent enterprise-level solution.""It is scalable and integration-friendly.""The interactive features that appear in the report were good. The external rendering option they give with multi servers was also good.""The solution is ideal for enterprise-level companies or corporations.""MicroStrategy has what they call the Semantic Graph — an enterprise-grade semantic graph — and I think the technology is fantastic.""MicroStrategy has powerful data security features, which are crucial these days. For example, when users view data in MicroStrategy, they're only allowed to see a portion based on the permissions. When we evaluated other solutions like Power BI or Tableau, we found the security is very poor. They can't help us secure access to the data.""The most valuable features of MicroStrategy are user-friendliness and integration with the different data warehouse systems.""The simplicity of MicroStrategy is what I like the most."

Cons
"I just want a few more features to be added.""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.""Amazon QuickSight has minimal features. The feature set can be improved to allow you to create good production-ready dashboards. This does not happen with QuickSite, it needs to mature to be used in production.""There should be better connectors for different data sets.""Right now, you can't use Amazon QuickSight on other cloud providers, so I'd like it to have availability on other cloud providers. This is an area for improvement in the product. What I'd like to see in Amazon QuickSight in the future is a distributed centralized system where I can manage all reports in one place, and for Amazon QuickSight to become reporting as a service.""You can't tell a data story as well in QuickSight as you can on others, especially in TIBCO Spotfire.""There is room for improvement in terms of the number of visualizations and dashboards that are available.""It should support integration with Python or R."

More Amazon QuickSight Cons →

"I would like to see the enterprise version available in a demo or as a trial version.""MicroStrategy should improve migration automation. Additionally, I would like there to be better partnership support.""Data preparation-wise, it was not so straightforward with respect to getting different sources. Preparing or transforming the data inside and then bringing it onto the dashboard was a bit difficult, and the experience could have been better.""We've found the scalability to be very good. However, it depends on the environment. In general, it could be much better.""MicroStrategy needs to do some more development to make the platform easier to use. It's a complicated platform that requires a lot of skill to effectively utilize. So they could work on reducing the complexity to make it more accessible for a broader community of people.""Its price should be lower. In terms of features, what we have is quite encompassing right now.""I would like to see more integration.""It would be good if it had greater analytics so we could build these visualizations by ourselves with scripts."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is simpler and cheaper than other solutions."

  • More Amazon QuickSight Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is expensive. We would like to extend it to many users, but we are currently restricting that because the cost is a constraint. If we are given a chance, we would love to expand it."
  • "All BI software vendors' list prices are high. It's about a price that fits the customer's needs. And I think MicroStrategy has some flexibility in its pricing model where we can easily demonstrate a total cost of ownership comparison against any of the other players."
  • "There is no subscription, I am using the free version."
  • "I am unsure what the licensing costs are for this solution however, development costs are around $100,000 per year."
