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.

Tableau Public

Tableau Public products (for free) work well during the product evaluation phase, as well as for sharing data with partners and the community for no charge. A key question is what security the customer wants with the data, and how frequently the underlying data changes. If the data does not change frequently, and the user is not concerned about securing the data, then Public is a good choice.

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.

  • Tableau public is a great training tool to understand the basics of Tableau before buying it.
  • Great tool to extend Excel's visualization and to publish data for others.

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.

  • Not useful for anything you need secure.
  • No ability to access databases. Static information only.

In the end, Tableau continues to innovate and deliver new functionality every year. Technical support is good, they also provide user forum(s) where experienced users share their knowledge and insights, as well as assist newer users with specific questions. This space (Business Intelligence) continues to grow and is very competitive with new vendors and products coming out all the time. That said, we've yet to see a product that can match Tableau.

The Tableau support team is responsive and easy to work with. Tableau also provides user forums, where experienced users can help new users with their questions and best practice ideas. Documentation is solid as well.

I found it sufficient, and fast. I could easily "kick the tires" with Tableau on my data so I got up and running fast.

Start at the end and work backward. Identify the business case / issue and questions the end users have, then identify the data needed, and where to get it.

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

Tableau Public is most similar to Google Data Studio in terms of being freely available for public use. However, its capabilities and sophisticated visualizations are far and beyond anything offered by Data Studio: Tableau is ideal for creating professional caliber workbooks and reports that combine visualizations, tables, and summary data - tailored with the color schemes and layout appropriate to the project or organization. In terms of basic functionality, Tableau Public is most similar to other BI / Viz programs like QlikView or Power BI, but remains the industry standard compared ot other options. I selected Tableau Public to get a feel for Tableau's capabilities against other competitors, and for professional reporting, analysis, and viz, there's nothing comparable on the market to Tableau's capabilities: even with the truncated ingestion options in the Public version, it still outshines Qlik, Power BI, and Datastudio -- especially because it's freely available.

  • Quick visualizations.
  • Clean design. If you are a fan of Edward Tufte or Stephen Few, then you favor a lean, clean look. That seems to be Tableau's default. I appreciate that.
