Now you can use QuickSight to directly connect to, analyze and report on data from popular business applications such JIRA, GitHub, ServiceNow, Adobe Analytics, and Twitter. For example, engineering teams using JIRA to track issues such as tasks and bugs can now use QuickSight to report on developer efficiency and bug burndown. Marketing organizations can integrate QuickSight with Adobe Analytics to build consolidated dashboards on their online and web marketing data. Brands can plug in to Twitter to analyze and understand their customers’ sentiment. These connectors make it easy for non-technical business users to easily connect to the 3rd party application sources using OAuth, easily ingest and report on the data with a few simple clicks and eliminates the need to export the data to an intermediate store.
Additionally, QuickSight also added native JSON support for flat files. Customers can now either upload a JSON file or connect QuickSight to their Amazon S3 bucket with JSON files and use QuickSight to visualize their data. QuickSight automatically performs schema and type inference on the JSON and flattens the data for analysis and visualization, making it convenient for customers to understand their application-generated data.
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).
