Build dashboard

Amazon QuickSight is the Business Intelligence service system in the AWS services ecosystem. The distinguishing features of QuickSight include the following:

  • Auto Scaling and Serverless: The ability to automatically scale according to the number of users and serverless saves us from having to administer the underlying infrastructure for QuickSight’s dashboard system.
  • SPICE (super-fast, parallel, in-memory, calculation engine): a feature that allows for improved query speed through the use of memory to store data in data sets.
  • Support embedded dashboard and API: easily integrate and embed interactive visuals into the application or website portal.
  • ML Insight and integration with Sage Maker: The feature automatically generates analytical insights and combines with the Sage Maker service to use advanced predictive models.
  • Flexible payment according to user usage.
