Demos Using Amazon QuickSight

Karthik Kumar Odapally and Pranabesh Mandal have several example visuals that you can generate using Amazon QuickSight:

Typical Amazon QuickSight workflow

When you create an analysis, the typical workflow is as follows:

  1. Connect to a data source, and then create a new dataset or choose an existing dataset.

  2. (Optional) If you created a new dataset, prepare the data (for example, by changing field names or data types).

  3. Create a new analysis.

  4. Add a visual to the analysis by choosing the fields to visualize. Choose a specific visual type, or use AutoGraph and let Amazon QuickSight choose the most appropriate visual type, based on the number and data types of the fields that you select.

  5. (Optional) Modify the visual to meet your requirements (for example, by adding a filter or changing the visual type).

  6. (Optional) Add more visuals to the analysis.

  7. (Optional) Add scenes to the default story to provide a narrative about some aspect of the analysis data.

  8. (Optional) Publish the analysis as a dashboard to share insights with other users.

It’s interesting to see how Amazon is trying to move this functionality from third-party tools (Power BI, Tableau, etc.) and notebooks right into the set of AWS offerings.¬† Contrast this with the way that Microsoft is building in Jupyter with Azure Notebooks.
