My advice to others is that there are many good solutions but it depends on your use case. If you are building something for C-level employees, use Tableau or another solution. If you want to do data analysis on Amazon, use QuickSite. And if you want to build production-ready software use Javascript. These BI solutions are built with some thought in mind, they're good at what they do, but they don't solve all the problems. The features I need, they cannot provide me because they're not built like that. I rate Amazon QuickSight a six out of ten.

I'm very excited about their product. We were using others, other things for visualization analytics, however, within the AWS stack, it's actually proving to be pretty capable. It was a whole AWS stack that we're shaping out. Given our partnership with Amazon, they've been pushing a lot of different services and products at us. But the QuickSight was something that was remarkably quick to stand out and recreate some use cases within, for example, Power BI. So we have found that to allow for a really rapid, quickly produced prototype. I would recommend QuickSight as, if you were a citizen developer, it's very approachable. Learning something like TIBCO or Power BI is a bigger learning curve. What I do like about QuickSight, is that it gives a relative beginner the ability to really start seeing results quickly. I don't think it's a competitor yet for some of the more sophisticated tools. However, if a developer or developer's client was relatively unsophisticated, it's a very smooth and quick place to start. I would rate the solution at a seven out of ten simply due to the fact that, in its class, it does well, however, in comparison to some other tools, it's not as robust.

It is a simple intelligence tool. It is quite simple as compared to other advanced intelligence available in the market. If you are working on real-time applications, such as Robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT), and want dynamic dashboards with frequent refreshes, then QuickSight is not a suitable option. I would rate Amazon QuickSight a five out of ten based on my experience with other products.

I would advise others to have quality developers and ensure that the security patches had been in place and be mindful of that moving forward so that if there are any security issues, you can call it out before the client calls it out. I would rate Amazon QuickSight a five out of ten.

I am planning to use this solution in the future. I am going to use it by recommending it to my clients where I can suggest that they can explore Amazon QuckSight as one of their options for business intelligence reporting. If the customer is satisfied with the pricing and other features compared to other products such as Tableau or Power BI, then I would go ahead and start analyzing. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
