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.

Gephi

I would recommend Gephi for easy ramp-up and fast graph visualization, especially for SNA (Social Network Analysis) and community discovery in general. It makes it easy to experiment with new techniques and explore your data intuitively, and even intuitively evaluate some more advanced techniques like clustering. However, if the user is already pretty advanced in graph analysis or wants specific algorithms and functions, they should look to see whether those exist in Gephi plug-ins and compare it to plug-ins in R, Cytoscape, yEd and other data visualization solutions. In particular, I have found that Tulip, although, harder to learn at first, fills many of the gaps left by Gephi. Still, it is so easy to get started on Gephi that I might still recommend it to someone who knows they will need a more sophisticated product like Tulip down-the-road.

Pros

Amazon QuickSight

  • 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.

Gephi

  • Gephi's UI, built-in layout, and built-in clustering algorithms make it very easy to get started with (assuming you have some really data and real questions you want answered).
  • Gephi's force atlas layout algorithm and MCL (Louvain) clustering algorithm are both very fast, which I think is crucial for a data visualization tool, because it allows you to play with your data and do intuitive analysis.
  • Gephi's visualization is pretty (and intuitive), which helped me sell the clustering techniques to un-initiated and non-technical managers and executives.
  • Gephi has a pretty large community of support, so when I learn about other clustering algorithms/visualization techniques, it often already exists in a Gephi plug-in.

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.

Gephi

  • Visualization. Not much graphical as of now in Gephi
  • UI can be much improved. Gets confused between different tabs when used after a long gap.

Not much useful. I would be more likely to extend it if gephi impressed me with visualization.

Gephi is very intuitive and the fact that it shows its process helps the user understand what's going on. However, the animation features can really slow it down and there isn't a way to shut them off. Furthermore, the failures on saving mean you frequently have to start over. These problems disrupt the workflow and can be frustrating.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon QuickSight

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

Gephi

R is probably stronger from a statistics, mechanics, and customization stand-point, and has some plug-ins for graph visualization, but it can still be a bit of a black box, whereas Gephi is built around graph visualization, allowing you to really play with the data, even showing you the intermediate steps of the layout algorithms, which helps you understand how Gephi is making sense of the data and how you can use it more effectively. Its clickable GUI also makes it much easier to discover its functions and its beautiful outputs makes it easy to sell ideas to the un-initiated
