What do you like best?

Amazon quicksight is an economic analysis, quick and easy.runs entirely in the AWS cloud, has good access to Amazon data sources and fair access to other data sources, and offers basic analysis and data manipulation at a basic price.

What do you dislike?

As we’ll see, QuickSight makes this process quite easy and straightforward, but it lacks some useful visualization capabilities found in competing tools.

"Extremely simple for simple use cases "

What do you like best?

It's highly integrated with data on AWS, and it's very easy to set up basic use cases.

The cost is very low compare to other solutions

It's easy for IT to set up additional account

It's quick to do simple things

It takes less than 1 hour to setup

What do you dislike?

Compare to Tableau or other focused solution, Amazon QuickSight still lacks a lot of customization features.

Limited data visualization type (only a few simple and popular charts)

No realtime co-edit feature.

No easy way to share or publish dashboard with people outside your aws accounts. If you need to share the web form of the dashboard, you will need to create aws account and then add quicksight account for your customer. Ideally you would want some URL that you can share with some basic authentication and zero cost.

No easy report export (e.g. PDF / excel export)

One thing I noticed is QuickSight has not been adding feature since 2017.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Quick dashboard set up for data in AWS.

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

Quickly build dashboard w/ basic visualization for data in Redshift / S3

Our goal was to generate a set of metrics quickly base on data we store in AWS, we don't want to download data and process offline which is too much manual work, we wanted cloud native solution since our data are in AWS.

What Business Intelligence Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Has Potential but seems suitable only to larger organizations vs smaller startups"

What do you like best?

I really love the integration with AWS and how easy it is to get my RDS to work directly with QuickSight. The fact that I can manage everything with AWS is great and preferable to actually working with multiple system and connectors.

What do you dislike?

There is a severe lack of ability to make custom fields, group bys, and other features that other BI solutions excel at. For example I wish I could have the functionality to really customize some level of detail expressions as well as more control over the colors and styles of the visualizations. Currently it is not flexible enough to meet most of my customers needs. For example my customers will not only want high level looks but also want to drill down and pull out tables of data which seems like it is implemented but is not robust enough.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the trial a fair shake, try and develop a dashboard / data solution that would mimic a setup that your typical end user would like to see.

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

BI on demand for small start ups to answer key business questions and KPI management. So far though we havent been able to convince the teams that it is enough insight provided in a easily digestable format and flexible enough to provide drill down data when deeper analysis is required.

"Good for raw analysis but lacks intuitive insights capabilities"

What do you like best?

The data retrieval & processing part is easier to handle esp since we are on AWS cloud platform. The tool suits more technical roles - product / engineering since they do more of the geeky analytical stuff & analysis is raw so they don't have to spend time beautifying data.

What do you dislike?

We do struggle to manage data outside of cloud so other analytical packages such as Tableau & Qlik score on those aspects. Business teams will find it difficult to adopt Quicksight since scope for customizable dashboards & visualization is extremely limited.

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

Pulling network level advertising user data at a log-level for granular analysis around bidding & prediction

"Easy to find the products "

What do you like best?

It helps to find the page easily that we are looking. it is secure fast and interactive towards the customer and also really provide only read only access to its members. it is safe to use it. I would really recommend this software who is really looking to sell or buy things. it keeps our data secure and locked. it is also cost effective and good one

What do you dislike?

I don't have any dislikes or negative view towards this software. This allows secure and faster processing and to find out the things or product. it is innovative and with quick sight features that provides the products that we are looking for could be able to search and make a purchase. This is an awesome feature that amzon provides to find the things

Recommendations to others considering the product

all good and secure and faster

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

we are able to quickly different products and services available and could use them

"Pretty cool data visualization tool"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to easily create and share data visualizations (graphs, pie charts, etc) from existing datasets in aws redshift. The ease of use is also a huge plus. Sharing visualizations with people not on your aws account with quicksight only accounts is a plus, although when I last used it invites were by email only via. The web app.

What do you dislike?

When I last used it in a significantly large redshift table (1b+ records) visualizations took time to generate (as all the data couldn't fit into cache) which is fine if you have time and don't care about connections being open to your cluster for a while - but as a developer it's much much faster to directly query the db and get the information you need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Connect it to your database / upload some data sets and play around with it - because of how easy it is to use you'll very quickly understand whether quicksight is suitable for your project.

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

Visualization of developer data sets to management / people that we didn't want to have direct db access.

"Flexible pricing options for your various needs"

What do you like best?

I really appreciate the flexibility of pricing plans. It’s either 18 dollars a month or .30 cents a session which is defined as a half hour. It makes it easier to pay for just what I’m using. If I feel like I need a significant amount of time I can just pay for the month, if I just need to check in every other day or once a week .60 cents and hour is NOTHING

What do you dislike?

I actually don’t have any dislikes. I think it’s a super useful tool and the price is right.

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

We have been able to organize our data and use on a trial basis with a few of our customers. It’s good for the basics, but for more complex reports you’re going to want help from IT

"A new service that isn't ready yet"

What do you like best?

Interface and features are presented in a simple and easy to use fashion

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, QuickSight offers the barest minimum of features compared to industry leaders like Power BI and Tableau. Ability to integrate other data sources is very limited, visualizations are overly simplistic, and interactive usage is very hampered by lack of features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look elsewhere

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

At this point, essentially none. We had hoped to utilize this as a potential alternative to other tools such as Power BI and Tableau but after multiple team members explored it we realized there were essentially no use cases where we would choose QuickSight vs. competitors.

"Economical, easy to use visualization tool"

What do you like best?

The cost can't be beat. While the package lacks many of the bells an whistles that's in Tableau or Looker, it has all the basics and gets the job done for 90% of our users.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is a bit messy. Location of filters and items aren't intuitive, but easy to use once you get the hang of things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No frills visualization tool that's economical

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

We use it to give users access to recurring reports.

"Ok for Data Analyst, Not Ready to Embed"

What do you like best?

Cost structure and ease of setup. That is all I liked.

What do you dislike?

Chart options are limited.

Data errors occur for no apparent reason on basic numeric data.

Support is slow to respond (this was around the time of the AWS trade show, so YMMV).

No way to deploy code across AWS accounts (promoting from Dev to Prod)

It was not clear how to provide multi-tenant security in a pooled tenant model.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wait until Q3 2018

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

POC only

Quick sight is truly a user friendly experience. I was able to pick it up very fast making my day to day a lot easier

What do you dislike?

The program is entirely proprietary making it unusable with other programs

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

As the name of the program states it's best benefit is the fact that you don't have to dig around for the information you need it's readily available.
