Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon QuickSight

I'm likely to recommend it because it would become so native if other cloud services are based on AWS infrastructure, like our current setup. It is very seamlessly integrated with other services to feed in data for the visualization. In addition, supporting a reasonably large number of users concurrently is not an issue and should be able to scale horizontally as needed.

It's well suited for dynamic data, especially when multiple users are using the application and generating data, it helps us to get analytics of the data for users.

Pros

Amazon QuickSight

  • Lightweight and serverless BI tool that can be used for niche dashboards.
  • Its integration into other AWS Services is one of its most appealing features.
  • The low monthly cost is another benefit.

D3.js

  • It provides multiple ways of visualizing data easily.
  • It is fast and light on system resources. It is built with JavaScript and visualizations can be easily hosted on the web across browsers.
  • It has a huge community backing it so it is easy to find people to help with whatever you're doing.

Cons

Amazon QuickSight

  • One of the primary challenges I've had with Amazon QuickSight so far is that some of the reports I want to build use data from different data sets. Instead of being able to put all of the information I want to see into one report.
  • Some of our Amazon QuickSight reports only update every 24 hours. It would be great to see that data in real-time.
  • I would remove the various time zones from Amazon QuickSight and only use the time zone we are in.

D3.js

  • Hard to code, not a kids play toy.
  • No tutorial from official documentation.
  • Requires web development experience.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon QuickSight

In our case, we are storing our large amount of data in the cloud so using QuickSight adds up to the performance of the reporting. We are using it as a secondary reporting tool so that a business user can generate their own report. We are using Tableau as our primary reporting tool.

Protoviz does not require as much knowledge of programming to build visualizations as with D3.js or Google Charts. Highcharts or AnyChart are other alternatives that are more specific to building charts only
