Pros
"From an analytics perspective, it's really good for self-service analytics.""The ease with which it integrates with different data sources is most valuable. Especially when everything is on AWS, it is easy to connect to the data source and organize different dashboards.""One of the most valuable features of Amazon QuickSight has been the speed at which visualizations can be created.""The query and dashboard capabilities are entirely good.""Amazon QuickSight can provide insights from the available data. It supports various rule types. We get the options of machine learning and insights, which are not available in other intelligence tools. It is easier to use, more stable, and cheaper than other solutions.""The most valuable feature of Amazon QuickSight is its connectivity with other Amazon services.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the user interface."

More Amazon QuickSight Pros →

"The most valuable features are on the application side, where you can design applications into your analytics on the platform.""Offers both business intelligence as well as inbuilt AI and machine learning capabilities.""Its user-friendliness is valuable. It is a product for end-users and not for IT, which is an advantage.""I like the predictive features of SAP. It's easy to use tools for an end-user.""It offers good backup capabilities.""The features that I have found most valuable with SAP ERP products are their good user interface, stability, functionality, and good interface options.""It integrates with third-party applications such as Google Drive and Excel,""I like the connectivity the solution provides with other products."

Cons
"You can't tell a data story as well in QuickSight as you can on others, especially in TIBCO Spotfire.""It should support integration with Python or R.""There should be better connectors for different data sets.""Amazon QuickSight has minimal features. The feature set can be improved to allow you to create good production-ready dashboards. This does not happen with QuickSite, it needs to mature to be used in production.""There could be an end-to-end pipeline for data cleaning as well as presenting it using different visualizations.""It is a simple tool with limited features. Its visualization set is very limited, and it also has limited functionality. An intelligence tool should not be only for creating reports. Currently, we have to do all computational and mathematical operations outside. We should be able to do such operations in an intelligence tool like this. As an intelligence tool, it should support dynamic refresh. QuickSight currently supports the refresh at a minimum of one hour, and it is not suitable for dynamic dashboards that require frequent refreshes.""There is room for improvement in terms of the number of visualizations and dashboards that are available."

More Amazon QuickSight Cons →

"It should have the flexibility for scoping the story and models. When you use it in a three-layer architecture, you struggle with the fact that you usually have just one SAP Analytics Cloud tenant, and you have to switch the connections, which might be an issue for bigger developments. For the development role, there should be an option to switch between development and production scenarios.""I would also like to have more advanced features for predictive analytics.""The solution should include other scripting languages as well, such as Python.""SAP could add some more visualization features to Analytics Cloud, like charts and analytics. I would also like to see some more data cleaning and ad hoc functions added to this solution.""Currently only one data modeler can work at a time.""It still lacks a lot of functionalities as compared to other tools such as Power BI or Tableau. Sorting is not working as well as it works in Tableau. A lot of other things are also not at the same level. Their technical support is not perfect and could be better. It takes a lot of time to have lacking functionalities implemented. Its integration with the BW backend should be better. Both solutions are from the same vendor. They position SAP Analytics Cloud as a reporting tool on top of the BW environment, but the integration between both is not yet 100%. For example, user management is still not synchronized.""SAP Analytics Cloud requires a lot of coding and I would like the coding to be somewhat minimal.""The customizations need to be better."
