If it is on an iframe on a separate server and we're trying to employ something that is serverless technology, we have to pay each time they went and tapped the service. So, every call to the server had a cost associated, which can make it quite expensive depending on how much you use. I've dealt with smaller hosts with unlimited bandwidth and unlimited space for 20 hours a month. The prices of AWS, Azure are astronomical. It is kind of frustrating, but it is what it is. It is the industry standard.

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

Hello peers,  I am a research student at a large educational organization. There are many business intelligence tools in the market but only a few of them are well known. Why is AWS QuickSight not as popular as other business intelligence tools? What BI tool do you use and why? Thank you.

First of all, AWS QuickSight is a versatile BI tool and is cloud-native. Some of the reasons which discourage BI teams from using AWS QuickSight are I) AWS QuickSight access requires AWS account setup ii) AWS QuickSight usage requires some knowledge of setting up AWS resources and IAM policies iii) AWS QuickSight lic is split between read-only and author roles, so additional admin work iv) Using AWS QuickSight for building or accessing dashboards, both incur cost v) Being a cloud-native app steady internet connection is required for a smooth experience vi) AWS QuickSight doesn't have a desktop client vii) AWS QuickSight is fairly new the industry and still improving on features.

Hello Pandu,  I may be wrong but to the best of my knowledge AWS QuickSight doesn't accept scripts in R or Python. Other BI tools do. I am a user of both languages and somehow my machine learning (ML) projects can be easily implemented in a company with such user-friendly BI tools. I take them to be an entry point for managerial ML solutions (not so much for industrial solutions).   That's why I disregard BI tools that don't handle R and Python.

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.

I don't like the fact that we had to implement it using an iframe. To implement it on a website, you have to use an iframe. It would be better if we could call up an API to populate content on the website versus having your alignment iframe. This is because when it is on a separate server, you have to deal with cores. I also couldn't customize the look and feel to meet the environment in which we were trying to install it. Its initial setup was also not straightforward. We weren't able to fully implement it due to security concerns. One part of our company is currently implementing Databricks because of security issues with AWS QuickSight.
