What do you like best?

Accessibility of QuickSight over the browser makes it highly portable to use on different systems. It is very quick & easy to learn. Most of the basic visuals are already covered in it and if someone already has a little bit of experience in Tableau, it's doesn't take more than a day learn this tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a few limitations in terms of the visuals that are there. But given the low cost, it's value for money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a team of analysts who can prepare the aggregated data for you, which will be concise as per your need, you can go ahead with QuickSight (remember it cannot handle huge amount of data). Make sure to check out the data limitations before using it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What I find the most amazing about QuickSight is how I can connect to a diverse set of data sources either live or save an extract in spice.

The interface is pretty easy to traverse through and understand.

The help guide is rich in examples.

Integrating with website is easy with the Java SDK. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The limited formatting options available where I cannot control the header, pane and corner section formatting easily. It would be great to have it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy to use. If you can write a simple SQL this tool will replace biggies like Tableau, Power BI and Qlik. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're a fleet management company and looking at our data live is something that's very important to us.

With our existing AWS account and redshift and MySQL databases, we can easily connect it with a VPC.

We switched to QuickSight from Tableau for the following reasons:

Tableau was unable to give us the refresh frequency at which we needed the data to be.

So the best choice for us was to integrate our existing gocurb AWS account with quicksight because.

1. It is cheaper than Tableau.

2. Turn around times are great.

3. Strong Data modeling capabilities.

4. Easy to integrate into the website given the extensively enabling Java SDK in the help section.

5. For use with Tableau, we needed to do ETL for the data every day. Quicksight is just writing a query and you're ready to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

When data is shared with a colleague the data model is not clearly visible. Hence the co-owner of the dataset cannot make changes.

We cannot add visuals from different reports/dashboards to create a composite dashboard.

Data from SQL query cannot be connected with existing tables for more powerful reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have used Quicksight for our item briefly, one of points is that it is complimentary and also provides all the devices for straightforward dashboard but very less assistance for innovative visualisations. Easy and also Intuitive individual interface - Very less finding out curve - Really valuable for fast production of easy dashboards. QuickSight is just one of the Finest Analytics tools as well as matches to those end individuals who are trying to find inexpensive as well as ideal reporting device and also fetching information from AWS cloud solutions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If feasible with expansion or API to customize the visualization would certainly be much better. More help message, may be roll over or stand out up menus can make navigation for a customer much easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'm likely to suggest it due to the fact that it would come to be so indigenous if other cloud solutions are based on AWS infrastructure, like our existing setup. It is really perfectly integrated with various other services to feed in data for the visualization. Additionally, supporting a fairly a great deal of users simultaneously is not an issue as well as needs to have the ability to range flat as needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When you want to question data quickly and also the information is in the AWS eco-system, Amazon QuickSight is great.

In general, it 's a strong service however requires to mature a whole lot if it wishes to end up being a venture remedy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are a company which checks the high quality of health and wellness treatment offered by a payer. We have leading payers as our customers. Now we are utilizing QuickSight on a speculative basis as well as just a few of our customers are utilizing it. It has a few advantages and disadvantages like for a couple of standard reports clients do not need ahead to us they can generate it by themselves. However, it is not so easy that the ordinary organisation user does not need programmer support. In other words, we can say it is great however just for the really standard requirements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Business individuals time will squander in creating records, it needs to have a version where we can promote the record from one environment to other. You can not utilize it as a key reporting device as many of the attributes are missing. For complicated records for company, individuals need to get aid from an IT person. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The service is still in a developing phase and also at this placement this can not be the only device for coverage.

Capabilities connected to the evaluation are very great also.

I was excited on the aesthetic information I was able to get, but I have seen other software application do even more as well as give more back to the individuals.

You can use fields list as a filter to limit dates and specific occasions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The trial solution was not restrictive either and it permitted me to explore the lots of selections. I loved that it has support for various other solutions such as Salesforce, Tableau etc to import data. The sharing function makes it fun for everyoneto view the dashboards within a company.

What do you like best?

The things I liked in quick sight are the wide range of choice of the charts, and a feature which 'auto-chart' that automatically suggests the required chat for the data. It was really user-friendly as it has a drag-and-drop feature which saves us a lot of time for the management people. The network team did not take much time to do the installation in the server to give me access and the integration wasn't that hard. The price wasn't expensive when compared to the other tools available in the market. The support team was always ready to help and they were very fast in responding to our queries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There a couple of things I did not like, such as we cannot combine two different datasets also we cannot create complex joins. In addition, the data has to be loaded in their native database to performing an analysis. The stage at which you can view the data in the default database the processing power of the application is very slow. The calculations formulae to be performed were too hard to follow and it did not allow a lot of calculations for my datasets which I was performing. Although, the integration did not take much time we faced difficulty in installing on our own server and faced some challenges here. The site loading was very slow which needed to increase the heap size and some more troubleshooting help which was a couple of times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

One thing in using Amazon QuickSight is it does not need much of a learning curve compared to the other tools available in the market. It will be easy to use only if there no large dataset and want to do rudimentary analysis rather than advanced analytics. It is user friendly and better to use it as service for the in-house management team for startups or small size company for general visualization purposes. It is recommended because as it not as expensive as tools in the market. It might not capture a bigger market for now but with few enhancements, it might be a good tool in the market in the near future. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was trying to solve a wide range of problems using quicksight, few of them are, trying to find patterns between the different kinds of users and their usage of cards using their financial data. Exploratory data analysis like average cards ratio, the most used cards, and the highest amount send in a particular month as well as year sorted out in ascending and descending order. We also did geographical data analysis using USA map, heatmap as well as pie charts of specific states to display the maximum number of users and minimum amount spent for each card type and even sectors. We have around 6 sectors and we were trying to find which sector had a major contribution to revenue generation and in particular in which cities. This made us understand which verticals were not generating profits and why the states in the USA were not using our product. We tried to find back the answers to maximize our profits.

The reliance of the AWS web servers is large, so if your information is not stored in the Amazon cloud, you may have to search for another system or upload it to Amazon.

What do you like best?

Data-model including all calculations is hosted online - no performance from your workstation is recquired. Ease of use lets you visualize standard reports but many additional possibilities are available if you dig deeper. Simple pricing scheme based on usage with a max. price comparable or below competitors helps you to establish a BI solution within your organization without too much commitment recquired in the decision making process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Takes a bit effort to connect non-AWS datasources.

Manual files .csv, .xls etc to enrich your data model cant be combined with your systemic sources in Quicksight.

Model building in Quicksight is also very rudimental compared to other solutions which recquires yout to build a model beforehand in Mysql.

Difficult to build time based reports or comparisons as it recquires you to restructure the data for many reports. This means you will have to deal with calculated columns or fields. Compared to DAX or other languages options are limited what you can to with calculated fields. The UI is not always in good shape for a mobile layout. Support in the forums for Quicksight is almost non-existent. Best practice is hard to find - so it still trial and error for a large part. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are publishing dashboards for selective customers with quicksight as it recquires no installed software and has a simple pricing model based on usage. Manual daily reporting is not needed anymore. We host one central dataset that is filtered accordingly for every receipient of the report. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The product has a wonderful, however standard analytic and reporting abilities which is terrific for creating basic records by service individuals. Due to its simpleness, it is very easy to discover as well as make use of from the start. This means you can get your company understanding right away without constructing a full framework around it as well as paying a lot of money. Another terrific feature is that as a result of its organized in AWS, integration with multiple information storage space services of Amazon Web Services is conveniently available. The coverage capacity is excellent, and multiple divisions can access the reports across the business, which helps cooperation as well as effectiveness. It additionally offers you live surveillance which provides you the option to make and also needed changes in the reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This is simply a standard device that does not thick every boxes. For instance, records are not updated actual time (data is unreal time in records), which makes this device a little bit unreliable and also much less useful, as major decisions can not be made based upon the information from these reports. It likewise limits the use of the tool. With this in mind, you can not utilize it as your primary reporting tool as it does not have important functions. If you want to develop a complicated record for the service, you need to get aid from a technical person, like IT. You are dealing with challenges if you want to share your reports with company individuals who are not in IAM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The product has an excellent, but fundamental analytic and also reporting capabilities which is terrific for producing standard reports by organisation customers.

What do you like best?

It works well with other AWS resources, as well as the SPICE feature is also good. Also it is support many data sources like files from local system in tsv, csv, .clf, .elf, .xlsx , Salesforce, files from S3 using s3 bucket path or manifest file, Athena , RDS, Redshift , MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Aurora, MariaDB and etc Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It limited in terms of range, and schedule. It should provide option for real time analysis. Also it should have an API so that the users can manage the analysis from the code, also it should be able to integrate with other services like web applications etc. The file size limit should be increased. Cost should be less when integrating within AWS Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its good for batch analytics but if the purpose is real time its not quite suitable. Also it have great support and setup within AWS ecosystem so that is also a plus point of QuickSight but the limitation in available range of graphs is there. Also for non IT persons it will be difficult to setup also if you are doing a comparison with other available tools like ThoughtSpot, looker and tableau quicksight has a long way to cover. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have made visualization on data warehouse as well as datalakes, it was fast to get the results as the source was aws s3 bucket and I used athena so with the power of athena my graphs loaded in less time. Because i have to query a very large data set so other connector and sources were causing me cost, as Quicksight easily integrates with Athena so I made aggregated tables in Athena and used them in quicksight Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Amazon QuickSight has helped me build a Data Lake, with streaming data, and easy to build dashboards, that can be shared among the company stakeholders.

Besides all the aforementioned, it is much cheaper than some desktop tools, that provides limited users licensing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The ability to quickly report on data already existing in your AWS ecosystem. It is much easier to use than the other reporting tools such as PowerBI. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It does have some limitations, but most are not critical to reporting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out and play around with sample datasets from Kaggle (csv) files. AWS has great documentation on the features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very helpful to build dashboard directly on the AWS platform. Has the capability to connect to On-Prem databases too. It’s is easy and quiet easy to load the data in Spire and analyse on top it. Very user friendly and easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Cannot load the data from Amazon s3 bucket directly if the bucket has different /multiple formats (metadata) of files. A huge disadvantage.

Most of the times spire fails data load or only half the records load to spire without clear information of why the other records failed to load to Spire.

Could provide a Capabilities to direct pdf download.

Scheduled dashboard which are send to business users will redirect them to login to AWS. If a User doesn’t have AWS access, he may fail to see the dashboard. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rebuilding the dashboard directly in QuickSight instead of going for a plug in tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

If you're generating reports based on data housed in the AWS Cloud, integrating that data could not be easier. I find that Quicksight's data recognition ability is superior to its competitors. Out-of-the box graphics are visually pleasing and plentiful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Quicksight is a relatively young addition to this space, so tips and troubleshooting support submitted by its user-community is less comprehensive than that available for competitors. Also given its youth, AWS often makes changes to the platform and it can--at times--be difficult to adapt to new changes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is no cost associated with enabling Quicksight in AWS. I would highly recommend at least giving Quicksight a try with a limited data-set. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating data held in Aurora RDS and S3 buckets with non-Amazon BI products could be time-consuming and challenging. Quicsight makes this extremely easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
