Amazon QuickSight is now generally available for all customers. At 1/10th the cost of traditional BI solutions, QuickSight is a fast, cloud-powered business analytics service that makes it easy for you to build visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis, and quickly get business insights from your data. You can upload Excel files, connect to databases like SQLServer, MySQL or PostgreSQL, in the cloud or on-premises; access third-party applications, like Salesforce; or analyze data from other AWS services such as Amazon RDS, Amazon Redshift and Amazon S3. QuickSight’s power stems from its Super-fast, Parallel, In-memory, Calculation, Engine (SPICE), which delivers fast and responsive query performance and scales to hundreds of thousands of users. Once you’ve built your analysis or dashboard, you can access QuickSight via your web browser or your iOS mobile app and securely share your insights with colleagues and stakeholders.  

QuickSight offers a two-month free trial with a perpetual free tier for one user in your account with 1GB of SPICE capacity. QuickSight is available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) regions. Visit the Amazon QuickSight product page to learn more about Amazon QuickSight and sign up for free, today.
