As part of our one-year anniversary, we’re pleased to bring a number of new features to QuickSight. Starting today, you can visualize geospatial data using maps, create tabular reports using flat tables in your dashboards, and perform run-time calculations for SPICE data sets in analysis. For high cardinality data, we’ve added an “Others” bucket feature so you can combine the long tails of values into a single category. You can also now create data sets in QuickSight with up to 1000 columns to support wide-table use cases.

In addition to the analytical features, we are also announcing a preview of Private VPC access for QuickSight. If you have data in Amazon VPC or on-premises without any public connectivity, this feature will allow you to connect QuickSight to your private data sources without deploying any agent or gateway and without your data traversing the public internet. Preview starts today and you can sign up here.

Finally, if you are a healthcare company governed by HIPAA regulations, you can now analyze and visualize HIPAA compliant data in QuickSight.

These features are now available in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore and Sydney). To learn more, see the latest blog post on QuickSight.
