Amazon QuickSight is a fast, cloud-powered business intelligence (BI) service that makes it easy to build visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis, and quickly get business insights from your data. In this session, we demonstrate how you can point Amazon QuickSight to AWS data stores, flat files, or other third-party data sources and begin visualizing your data in minutes. We also introduce you to SPICE -  a Super-fast, Parallel, In-memory, Calculation Engine in Amazon QuickSight, which performs advanced calculations and render visualizations rapidly without requiring any additional infrastructure, SQL programming, or dimensional modeling, so you can seamlessly scale to hundreds of thousands of users and petabytes of data. Lastly, you will see how Amazon QuickSight provides you with smart visualizations and graphs that are optimized for your different data types, to ensure the most suitable and appropriate visualization to conduct your analysis, and how to share these visualization stories using the built-in collaboration tools.

  5. 5. We start with the customer… and innovate Customers told us… We created… Managing databases is painful and difficult SQL databases do not perform well at scale Hadoop is difficult to deploy and manage Data warehouses are complex, costly, and slow Commercial DBs are punitive and expensive Streaming data is difficult to capture and analyze  Amazon RDS  Amazon DynamoDB  Amazon EMR  Amazon Redshift  Amazon Aurora  Amazon Kinesis

  8. 8. What are the big data challenges our customers face?
  9. 9. Lots of data Who are my top customers and what are they buying? Which devices are showing time for maintenance? What is my product profitability by region? Why is my most profitable region not growing? How much inventory do I have? Has my fraud account expense increased? How is my marketing campaign performing? How is my employee satisfaction trending? Lots and lots of questions Few insights
  10. 10. Old-guard BI Costs too much Pay $ million before seeing first analysis 3 year TCO $150 to $250 per user per month Takes too long Spend 6 to 12 months of consulting and software implementation time
  11. 11. Can’t handle NoSQL, streaming data Time Cost Pay $ millions for license and hardware Requires 6 to 12 months of consulting Slower performance at scale Doesn’t deliver fast query performance Extra $$ for mobile and sharing Extra $$ for IoT dashboards Old-guard BI
  12. 12. Freedom to get the real value out of the data you have
