With its rich APIs, pay-per-session pricing, and ability to scale, we quickly rolled out QuickSight dashboards to hundreds of users. The constant evolution of the platform has been impressive – ML-powered anomaly detection, SageMaker integration, embedding, theming, and cross-visual filtering. Our users consume insights via natural language narratives; this allows them to read all of their information right off the dashboard with no complex interpretation needed"

SOOMLA provides app marketers, monetization managers, and product teams with unique in-app advertising insights.
"We needed a solution for displaying our data to customers that could be embedded into our products, and we needed it quickly. With QuickSight we were able to get the first version of our product developed within two weeks. Our development team is able to iterate extremely quickly and focus the efforts on functionality rather than managing servers. The UI is intuitive and embedding the QuickSight dashboard into our solution was easy. We estimate it would have taken three to six months if we had used another technology. We can now achieve 10x faster application development and respond to customers' needs by releasing new features every week. Lastly, native integration with our S3 data lake using Athena and pay-as-you-go pricing made QuickSight an easy choice."

Blackboard is a leading EdTech company, serving higher education, K-12, business, and government clients around the world.
“The recent wave in digital transformation in the global education community has made it clear that it’s time for a similar transformation in the education analytics tools that support that community,” says Rachel Scherer, Sr. Director of Data & Analytics at Blackboard. “We see a need to support learners, teachers, and leaders in education by helping to change their relationship with data and information—to reduce the distance between information and experience, between ‘informed’ and ‘acting.’
“A large part of this strategy involves embedding information directly where our users are collaborating, teaching, and learning—providing tools and insights that aid in assessment, draw attention to opportunities learners may be missing, and help strategic and academic leadership identify patterns and opportunities for intervention. We’re particularly interested in making the experience of being informed much more intuitive—favoring insight-informed workflows and/or embedded prose over traditional visualizations that require interpretation.
“By removing the step of interpretation, embedded visualizations make insights more useful and actionable. With QuickSight, we were able to deliver on our promise of embedding visualizations quickly, supporting the rapid iteration that we require, at the large scale needed to support our global user community.”
