Amazon QuickSight

Amazon QuickSight is good when you want to interrogate data quickly and the data is in the AWS eco-system. QuickSight is not a great option if you want pixel-perfect visualizations with a lot of functionality. Overall, it's a solid solution but needs to mature a lot if it wants to become an enterprise solution.

Highcharts

It is excellent when you are wanting to create clean, straight to the point, data visualizations. Pie charts, bar graphs, and the appropriate drill-downs are easy to develop and deploy. This helps a lot when needing to develop a data visualization solution for non-technical teams. However, the lack of customizability makes it difficult to create specialized visualizations.

Cons

Amazon QuickSight

  • You can not use it as a primary reporting tool as many of the features are missing.
  • For complex reports for business, users need to get help from an IT person.
  • Business users time will waste in developing reports, it should have a version where we can promote the report from one environment to other.
  • Sharing report with the user who is not added in IAM is complex.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon QuickSight

QuickSight is best suited to augment your other BI solutions, not as a primary tool. It still very immature when you compare it to products like Tableau, Qlik, Microsoft Power BI and others. However, it is very easy to get connected to data sources and a good way to interrogate data if the data is in the AWS system or database

Highcharts

Highcharts is almost 10 times more popular on real websites, so we decided to go safe here. The community was most important to us.
