"It helped the managers to visualize the data activities.""The most valuable feature of Amazon QuickSight is its connectivity with other Amazon services.""The solution is simple to implement.""The query and dashboard capabilities are entirely good.""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.

More Amazon QuickSight Pros →

"This solution has simplified getting to and understanding our data, no matter where it is housed.""You can switch views easily.""It's pretty easy to deploy.""The solution is fast.""It is a stable product.""Our Qlikview applications help us to get a good idea of our Client Base Performance and assist us in the decision making for Seasonal Specials. On the other hand QlikView helps us to get a grasp on our Suppliers and helps us to negotiate pricing with them.""We can scale it if we need to.""One of the good thing is that you can integrate different data source technologies. So you can model your environment without having any of our views running."

More QlikView Pros →

"I would like to see a feature that allows us to save a draft version before making it public and publishing it.""It can be made more user-friendly as some users might find this solution hard to implement. Qlik Sense, for example, is very user-friendly.""They could provide more options for graphics and other features.""The product has some storage and SPICE data issues.""There should be better connectors for different data sets.""The product is quite expensive because the price is too close to QlikView's prices but it does not ring as well as QlikView.""Amazon QuickSight's visualization could be improved.""There is room for improvement in terms of the number of visualizations and dashboards that are available."

More Amazon QuickSight Cons →

"They should offer the capability to directly access data from SaaS environments, as it would simplify the migration process, and while it may seem like a minor enhancement, it would be beneficial to our clients.""Sometimes, dealing with complex reports requires more effort, which could be really improved.""I would like to see more advanced features from Qlik Sense integrated into QlikView to keep it competitive and up-to-date.""I would want them to have more options as a user. It would be nice for them to create their own dashboards and add fields.""This solution would be improved with the inclusion of a feature that would allow us to add a common library of (our) commands used in load scripts and expressions, so with a keyword, we would get a drop down to select the command we are looking for, as opposed to the generic help.""The user interface is old.""The user interface and ease of use takes a bit of a learning curve to pick up.""Sometimes the filters are disappearing, and I'm not sure why this is happening."
