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.

Toad Data Point

I have not worked with another tool that covers so many different data stores so easily. I find the Query Builder and the data scrubbing abilities just top-notch and something the analyst needs. Toad Data Point is very good at working with Excel...can output directly to Excel, to a page in an existing spreadsheet (ie: refresh the data), to pivot tables, and can even set up Excel with the SQL behind the scenes so all you have to do is refresh the spreadsheet and Excel will pull the data! If your analysts use the SQL language, Toad Data Point has an extensive SQL editor, customized to the database environment the focus is pointing to...that includes templates, code snippets, SQL history, and more. This editor comes from the very popular Toad database access/development tool with a rich history in the IT world.

Pros

Amazon QuickSight

  • 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.

Toad Data Point

  • Ease of use. It is a very easy product to use without any particular training.
  • Multiple data source connection. It easily connects to multiple data sources which allows you to use different data sources to run reports.
  • Seamless application. Once you set everything up-- whether it is an FTP or export of data-- you can set it and forget it!

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.

  • The program can error out when reconnecting to a database from a timeout but that is easily fixed by restarting the program.
  • If you aren't familiar with database tools the UI can be overwhelming to some.

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

Toad Data Point

We have tried to use Tableau to try and accomplish a similar set of goals as we do with Toad Data Point. Toad is much more efficient once we have the data connections setup. We are able to easily drag and drop data sources. There are some advantages with Tableau but overall Toad has been a better utilization of our time.
