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 to creating dashboards for getting an overview of what is going on with an application.

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.

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.

  • Some performance issues with large datasets.
  • Linking to dashboards makes extremely long urls.
  • Lack of reports.

We did not use the official Kibana support. Documentation was easy enough to follow.

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.

Kibana is free; it was the first and only thing we've tried in this area.
