Amazon QuickSight makes it easy for all employees within a company - regardless of their technical skill - to build visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis, and quickly get business insights from their data. More than 1,500 AWS customers, including global enterprises and startups from a range of industries, have been using Amazon QuickSight during its preview. These customers have experienced how seamlessly Amazon QuickSight connects to AWS and non-AWS data sources, and how fast the query performance is for its robust Super-fast, Parallel, In-Memory Calculation Engine (called SPICE). Pricing for Amazon QuickSight starts at $9.00 per user, per month - one-tenth the cost of traditional BI solutions - so customers of all sizes can make rich business analytics functionality available to all of their employees. To get started with Amazon QuickSight, visit https://quicksight.aws The volume of data businesses create and process is growing every day. To get the most value out of this data, customers need to make it easy for all employees, regardless of their technical skill, to analyze data and share insights with others to drive decisions. However, the cost and complexity of traditional BI solutions prohibit most companies from making analytics ubiquitous across their organizations because these solutions require investments in costly on-premises hardware and software, weeks or months of data engineering time to build complex data models, and ongoing investments in additional infrastructure to maintain fast query performance as data sets grow. Amazon QuickSight is built from the ground up to solve these problems by bringing the scale and flexibility of the AWS Cloud to business analytics. Getting started with Amazon QuickSight is simple and fast. Customers simply log in to Amazon QuickSight, and Amazon QuickSight automatically discovers their data stored in AWS services such as Amazon Redshift, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). Amazon QuickSight also connects to third-party data sources such as Microsoft Excel or Salesforce.com. Amazon QuickSight formats the data and moves it to SPICE so it can be visualized in Amazon QuickSight, and customers can choose to keep the data in SPICE up-to-date as the data in the underlying sources change.
