On the other hand, Amazon QuickSight includes a natural language query capability, called QuickSight Q, so that users can ask questions about their data in plain language. BI teams won’t have to pre-build data models on specific data sets. The more users use Q, the better it gets thanks to its built-in dictionary and feedback mechanism. QuickSight enables organizations to scale business analytics capabilities to hundreds of thousands of users. In addition, it has fast and efficient query performance as it uses a robust memory engine (SPICE).
Among its main characteristics we can highlight:
- Easy to set up and use, as it does not require complex server configurations, data models or capacity planning
- Fast performance, it has an engine called SPICE that takes care of the memory calculation in QuickSight, automatically replicates the data for high availability, saving time, costs and resources.
- Low total cost, since it has a pay-per-session model for dashboard reader users (consumers), users will not incur any initial cost for licenses.
- Ability to create integrated dashboards and APIs, with single sign-on (SSO) and APIs, users can create interactive visualizations and dashboards and integrate them into applications and web portals without writing any code.
- Supports multiple data sources, so users can pull insights from SaaS applications, third-party databases, native AWS services, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) private subnets, and more.
- Anytime, anywhere access to dashboards and visualizations via QuickSight Mobile. The mobile-optimized experience includes capabilities such as drilldowns, filters, forecasts, email alerts, and collaborative viewing and sharing.
