Amazon QuickSight is a very fast, cloud-powered business intelligence (BI) service that makes it easy for all employees to build visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis, and quickly get business insights from their data. Amazon QuickSight uses a new, Super-fast, Parallel, In-memory Calculation Engine (“SPICE”) to perform advanced calculations and render visualizations rapidly. Amazon QuickSight integrates automatically with AWS data services, enables organizations to scale to hundreds of thousands of users, and delivers fast and responsive query performance to them via SPICE’s query engine. At one-tenth the cost of traditional solutions, Amazon QuickSight enables you to deliver rich BI functionality to everyone in your organization.
Just log in, point to a data source, and create your first visualization in minutes
No need to spend months building complex data models and invest in complex and costly software or hardware to generate the first report. Simply log in to Amazon QuickSight, point to a data source or upload a file, and begin visualizing your data with actionable insights in about a minute.
Upload files or connect to AWS data services
Easily connect Amazon QuickSight to AWS data services, including Amazon Redshift, Amazon RDS, Amazon Aurora, Amazon EMR, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon S3, and Amazon Kinesis; upload CSV, TSV, and spreadsheet files; or connect to third-party data sources such as Salesforce.
Smart visualizations are dynamically optimized for your data
Amazon QuickSight automatically infers data types and relationships and provides suggestions for the best possible visualizations, optimized for your data, to help you get quick, actionable business insights.
Share insights and collaborate with others
Securely share your analysis with others in your organization by building interactive stories for collaboration using the StoryBoard and annotations. Recipients can further explore the data and respond back with their insights and knowledge, making the whole organization efficient and effective.
Built from the ground up for the cloud, Amazon QuickSight's Super-fast, Parallel, In-memory, Calculation Engine ("SPICE") uses a combination of columnar storage, in-memory technologies enabled through the latest hardware innovations, machine code generation, and data compression to allow users to run interactive queries on large datasets and get rapid responses. SPICE supports rich calculations that help customers derive valuable insights from their analysis without ever having to worry about provisioning or managing infrastructure. SPICE automatically replicates data for high availability and also enables Amazon QuickSight to scale to thousands of users who can all simultaneously perform fast interactive analysis across a wide variety of AWS data sources.
Amazon QuickSight allows you to easily share business insights by packaging them up as interactive stories that you can share with others. Using the StoryBoard feature in Amazon QuickSight, you can combine visualizations into business dashboards, annotate them with comments, and share in a secure manner with individuals or broad groups in your organization.
Native Access on Major Mobile Platforms
You can access your data on Amazon QuickSight using native applications for iPad, iPhone, Android phones and tablets. You also have control over the availability of analyses, stories and dashboards for offline viewing, and creating annotations in offline mode, to be reconciled when your device is reconnected to the Internet.
Amazon QuickSight comes with a built-in suggestion engine that provides you with recommended visualizations based on the properties of the underlying datasets. Suggestions serve as possible first or next steps of an analysis and remove the time-consuming task of interrogating and understanding the schema of your data. As you drill in to your data, Amazon QuickSight provides the most appropriate graph types to visualize your data using AutoGraph, a collection of algorithms that learn over time the best visualizations that match your analytical patterns.
