Amazon Aurora

Amazon Aurora is best suited for creating complex, highly available and commercial databases, in a very straightforward way. The database size should be medium to large because only then will you be able to justify the extra cost incurred for using Amazon Aurora. Another aspect is that if you are already using AWS and most of your applications and services are on the cloud, then it makes sense to use Amazon Aurora since it fits in the Amazon ecosystem really well.

QlikView

I can't recommend QlikView enough for a small shop on a shoestring budget--with one technical user administering things, all your users can have a really nice, super useful data exploration tool. The burden is certainly on that one user, but the payback is immense considering the price (free!). Solutions like Tableau and Qlik's new product, Qlik Sense, are certainly prettier and less demanding in terms of UI design, but they can't touch QlikView in terms of value.

Pros

Amazon Aurora

  • Performance: We utilize Aurora as a PostgreSQL replacement, and Aurora's throughput is up to 3 times higher.
  • Simple Instance Auto-Scaling: We can scale the underlying database engine up or down with no down time.
  • Auto-Growing Storage: Rather than having to over-provision, Aurora automatically adds blocks of 10GB to your storage cluster up to multiple terabytes of storage.

QlikView

  • QlikView allows you make data-backed visualization very easily. The format of these visualizations is completely up to you and your team.
  • QlikView can show your data in many type of graphs as well as show the actual numbers associated with graphical points.
  • We use QlikView to access data on Microsoft SQL Server, but other data sources are supported. Check out the QlikView documentation to determine if they can use data in formats that you need to perform analysis on.

Cons

Amazon Aurora

  • Just like AWS DynamoDB which is a not a SQL solution and is truly a global DB, it would be great if AWS Aurora can become a global DB. What that means is that it is multi-region multi-master. That way writes to different regions of AWS would all be in sync and available in replicas on different regions.

QlikView

  • Qlikview has its own database and management system. Developers are required to build a new data model to get data into Qlikview.
  • Qlikview's web application requires significant memory and processing power from the browser. Complex dashboards can crash your browser if you're running too many things at once.
  • Qlikview dashboards look relatively outdated.

Ease of use, ability to load from pretty much any data source. today I created an application that loaded time sheets from excel that are not in a table format. With Qlik's "enable transformation steps" I was able to automate loads of multiple spreadsheets and multiple tabs easily. Could not do that with any other tool.

Dashboards are easy to use. They are very Excel-like with HTML5 capabilities. Data visualization is good.

The system requires minimum training to get user up and running. It just takes one hour to get up and running with building basic dashboards and one all day session for sophisticated dashboard building. It is intuitive.

We see this in our user adoption. We went from 6 users/day consuming dashboards to over 200 in 1.5 years.

We have 40-50 power users authoring dashboards. They have development licenses. My team in IT used to have to build all dashboards. Our capacity has grown from 3 to 50. Most of these users are analyst types good in Excel. A few power users can write SQL to build QVD models

The support as a whole cannot be applied to just Aurora, but I must say that the response to our tickets from the AWS side was a bit anemic. Despite that, there is plenty of documentation and forum articles that should make anybody self-serviced. Again, let me stress this out - the product (in either MySQL or Postgres form) was used by many people and thus now well understood, explained and there are plenty of books and other material available. This is not the case that we encountered with NoSQL.

"Implementation" can mean a few things... so I'm not sure that this is the answer you want.... but here it goes:To me, implementation means: "Is the user interface intuitive and can I produce meaningful reports with ease?"On that score, I'd say YES. The amount of training required was minimal and the results were powerful.The desktop implementation is a simple, "blank" interface just waiting for your creativity. The pre-populated templates give you a reasonable start to any project -- and a good set of objects to "play around with" if you're just getting started.Finally, note that the "implementation" I used was baked into QuickBooks 2016 Enterprise -- called "Advanced Reporting"..... That integration makes it ultra useful and simple.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Aurora

Using cloud-based services such as RDS or Aurora take all the hassle out of managing database servers yourself. It also gives you the flexibility to easily spin up and down additional instances and as when required. Where Aurora outshines RDS is in terms of performance - we saw around 2-5x improvement in query read times across the board.

QlikView

We evaluated a lot of other products in the magic quadrant but primarily compared QV against Tableau. We initially wanted to go with Tableau because it was cheaper and a simpler product to learn and use but frankly, their sales person was horrible and was not willing to work with us on number of licences or price. Qlikview was a great alternative. The product was better and even though it was a little more expensive, the more flexible licensing arrangement made up for it

Return on Investment

Amazon Aurora

  • The customers where we implemented Amazon Aurora database don't need to have an employee specialized in features and security upgrades.
  • The database replication and schedule for backup tasks are much easier, so less prone to errors.
  • We have never had a database downtime on our applications, which is essential for our customer business.

QlikView

  • Generate quick reports for requirements that don't require complex calculations. ROI was fine, but Tableau software was much more intuitive for non-technical users on our team
  • When putting Qlikview reports side by side with Tableau, we ended up delivering Tableau reports since they were quicker to generate and required no technical expertise
