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.

Amazon Redshift

Redshift is well suited as an alternative to on-prem data warehouses. AWS Data Migration Services can be used to migrate data from various relational databases into Redshift.

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.

  • It's a columnar data storage architecture and which allows it to particularly run structured data query for reporting very fast.
  • We used amazon redshift cloud datawarehouse with Tableau, looker reporting tool and it has perfectly helped our reporting needs for business users.
  • Very easy to copy data from Amazon Web Services S3 storage container to Redshift Database with simple copy statements.
  • It provides built-in commands to table structure effectively with less use of memory.

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.

  • We've experienced some problems with hanging queries on Redshift Spectrum/external tables. We've had to roll back to and old version of Redshift while we wait for AWS to provide a patch.
  • Redshift's dialect is most similar to that of PostgreSQL 8. It lacks many modern features and data types.
  • Constraints are not enforced. We must rely on other means to verify the integrity of transformed tables.

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

From an engineers perspective data must be available in near real time and from business perspective data must to consistent all over which is perfectly supported by Amazon Redshift. Scalability and performance tuning is well designed in Redshift.Business can make decisions and write queries for data retrieval instead of requesting engineers to fetch data.

Collaboration and Sharing

Amazon QuickSight5.8
Based on 2 answers
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

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.

Return on Investment

  • Allowed us to easily analyze business operations and facilitate A/B testing.
  • Allowed us to quickly answer complex questions about the company's data.
  • Took a lot of work to fix some issues once we got to the limits of its usability (specifically, we had too many writes).
