Introduction to Amazon QuickSight: Business Analytics for Everyone

Broadcast Date:

Level 200 | Service Intro
The volume of data businesses create and process is growing every day. To get the most value out of this data, companies often invest in traditional BI tools. However, these tools require investments in costly on-premises hardware and software. It takes weeks or months of data engineering time to build complex data models; not to mention the additional infrastructure needed to maintain fast query performance as data sets grow. In a nutshell, traditional BI tools are expensive and complex, and prevent companies from making analytics ubiquitous among business users. Amazon QuickSight is built from the ground up to solve these problems by bringing the scale and flexibility of the AWS Cloud and by providing a business user focused experience to business analytics. QuickSight is also the first BI service to offer pay-per-session pricing, making it even more cost-effective for you to provide access to analytics and insights for all of your users. With pay-per-session pricing there are no upfront costs, no annual commitments, and no charges for inactive users.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn about QuickSight, Amazon's BI service
• Learn how the new QuickSight pay-per-session pricing is designed to save you even more money
• Learn how you can do BI completely in the cloud with nothing to install or deploy

Suited For: IT Professionals, Business Analysts, Analysts, Data Scientists, Decision Makers
