We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the user interface."
"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."
"From an analytics perspective, it's really good for self-service analytics."
"All of the modules that we used to have separately in our on-premises solution are now integrated into one platform."
"The Smart Predict, Smart Insights, and Smart Discovery predictive analysis features are quite good."
"The most valuable features are the visualization and user-friendliness."
"The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature. We haven't tried all of the features yet. The graphing and the ease of using the analytics tools have been great. It's all drag and drop; you don't need to code anything."
"Provides rich features for developing automated reports and dashboards."
"The user interface is quite good for developing reports out of models."
"Planning is the most valuable feature of the product because it's integrated and that means we don't need to rely on an independent planning environment."
"One feature I've found most valuable is discovery."
"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."
"You can't tell a data story as well in QuickSight as you can on others, especially in TIBCO Spotfire."
"I would like to see reporting to the Analytics cloud directly."
"Some of the standard visualizations, such as a speedometer or a goal chart, are not there and should be added."
"We are currently working on connectivity with S/4HANA, but we would like to have better connectivity with our legacy systems."
"Statistical analysis should be a bit more profound than it is."
"SAP Analytics cloud needs better exporting options."
"There is no direct connector from SAP to Redshift, so we are required to use a third-party product that was recommended by SAP."
"When it comes to planning there is a concern about the ability to match the exact requirements of the customer with what the product offers."
"Improvements are coming quarterly whereas previously it was on a monthly basis."
"I wouldn't say that it is an expensive product, but to stay competitive they would need to bring down the prices."
"It is simpler and cheaper than other solutions."
"It is not the most expensive one. You have to do the cost-of-ownership analysis and take a lot of things into consideration to come up with the conclusion that it is cheaper or not, but its price is reasonable. It provides value for money."
"It's quite expensive and costs a lot to maintain, especially with licensing."
"It's not that costly as such for the time being."
"Its licensing is on a monthly basis."
"Compute and storage features should be sold separately."
"Its pricing is okay as compared to its competitors."
