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.

Highcharts

Highcharts is well suited for standard graphs and charts in which you want to quickly visualize your data. It is also well suited for simple or light streaming of live data. It is a little less suited when you need to do advanced visualizations (transition graphics or animations) or have large amounts of data that need be visualized.

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.

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.

  • While customization of colors and basic width/height of elements in simple, going beyond that becomes difficult.

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

D3 is a far more customizable framework which we've used on more data intensive type projects. In particular, we created advanced visual transitions of our data using D3. In cases where we don't need this level of detail, we use Highcharts instead. D3 does not provide a wide range of "out of the box" configurations like Highcharts does.
