Amazon QuickSight

Amazon QuickSight is well suited in any organization that is making business decisions based on performance data whether it be Marketing, Sales, Call Center, etc. It is a great tool especially for mature organizations that have a lot of data to work with. Amazon QuickSight may be not as well suited for newer organizations that are just beginning to drive data/performance metrics. The data available becomes more and more valuable to more that you have.

Dimensional Insight

In my experience, Dimensional Insight products are excellent. They are well suited to integrate data from multiple sources and allow for dissecting information based on dimensions defined. Once you understand the logic and the powerful functions available it is easy to use, specially if you get used to using integrated visual tools. The tunnels allow for selection of a subset of data from Diver portal and the dials are great to build markers and send files in different formats to users via email.

Pros

  • Amazon QuickSight is a really easy program to learn how to use.
  • Amazon QuickSight allows our team to customize the data using the various data sets, which makes the available reports incredibly powerful to our organization.
  • Our organization has the ability continually adjust our reports and build new reports as business needs change.
  • Even though our organization has different reports built for different departments, each department can still access and understand reports from across the company.

  • The product is excellent!
  • Experienced DI Consultants with a broad knowledge in both, product and client data.
  • Customer service and technical support is always available; very professional and investigate reported issues until resolved.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Technical documentation: make it easier to find examples or functions definitions.
  • Allow more flexibility in report design, maybe allow to combine columns.
  • I know with Diver 7.0 some of the missing functionality is resolved so I won't be suggesting any other improvement until we upgrade.

Navigation thru the Diver portal is simple; some users have trouble but it also depends on how the analysts build models and present the reports with quickviews selections and report layouts. I am aware of DI capability to access reports thru mobile devices but I have not experience it first hand.

Overall support is very good. In cases where is a delay I have been notified of the status of it and what DI expert team is investigating. I might not get a fix right away depending on pending releases and when my company decides to plan for the upgrade but response time is good.

I don't have direct experience with the first time DI was implemented but on subsequent upgrades there have been positive experiences with support and seamless transitions to avoid users discomfort.

Alternatives Considered

All of the other reporting platforms my organization has used previously were within our CRM and not a standalone program. In that we were very limited in being able to slice and dice the data the way that we wanted to

There are many members across my organization that use the QuickSight reports throughout each business day. There are various reports built for various departments as well as reports that cross over to all departments. There have not been any issues across the various departments with viewing the reports and using unique filters to look at the reports differently. Our IT department is the only department within the organization that has the necessary permissions to create new reports and/or make changes to existing reports

Report distribution is usually done thru reports made available in Diver portal; it is also used dials to create files and be distributed to users via email. At the security level access is granted to users based on groups and can be as specific as to the marker level.

Data Integration

Amazon QuickSight7.5
Based on 2 answers
All of the data that feeds into Amazon QuickSight comes from our CRM, Clarity. We do not have data coming in from any other sources. Some of the data that comes in is in real-time and some of the data only updates every 24 hours. Overall, the API feed of data seems to be very seamless and there have not been any hiccups in the feed.

I have merged data using DI from sources like Excel, flat files, MS Access and the only trouble so far is read lists from SharePoint automatically, but that seems to be a limitation from the SharePoint part. Merging data using DI integrator is easy in general. Depending on the system the process can be performed on demand or scheduled to execute at any given time or frequency.
