The Difference is Clear
Quicksight is an analytics service that allows individuals to create charts, reports and dashboards and perform basic self-service analytics. In these areas, Quicksight is a solid contender, on par with the rest of the industry. In recent years, Amazon has added some developer-friendly functionality, including a basic API to embed charts into other applications. These features have allowed Quicksight to appear more suitable for some enterprise use cases. But the service still has many critical architectural shortcomings surrounding embedded, distributed and software development applications.

4 Key Ways Qrvey Beats Quicksight
1. SDLC Compliance
Quicksight is not SDLC Compliant
As a SaaS product, Quicksight is not SDLC compliant and offers only a single production environment for all users. It does not have the ability to create staging or development environments, and instead forces everyone to build, update, test and deploy their analytics from the production environment.
Qrvey is SDLC Compliant
Qrvey was built for software companies and is fully SLDC compliant with the ability to create separate development, testing and staging environments as well as support multi-tenant environments as needed with centralized administration and management through our Admin Portal.
Winner: Qrvey (no contest)
2. Data Support
Quicksight is Limited
Quicksight has limitations on the overall size and types of data in your deployments. It is limited to 1,000 fields per table and 100 million records per dataset. Additionally, Quicksight only works with structured data sources and cannot process semi- or unstructured datasets. Most important however is that Quicksight does not currently offer the ability for incremental data loads. All of your data must be reloaded, in its entirety, with every update.
Qrvey Has No Limits
Qrvey is an enterprise-grade data platform that has adopted an “all data accepted” philosophy. With Qrvey, there are no limitations on your data because we deploy directly into your existing AWS account where your data already resides. Qrvey has the ability to collect, transform and analyze all types of data, including semi- and unstructured data sources with the performance and robustness you expect from an enterprise data solution.
Quicksight Only Offers Data Visualizations
Quicksight is merely a data visualization tool that only offers users the ability to connect to data and build traditional analytic outputs like charts, reports, metrics and dashboards.It does not include features like data collection or automation.
Qrvey is an All-in-One Platform
Qrvey, is an all-in-one analytics platform that includes data collection, transformation, analysis, automation, actions and AI/ML capabilities. Qrvey allows users to build robust analytics applications for individual, self-service and embedded use cases.
Quicksight Doesn’t Support Embedding
Quicksight is a SaaS application that was not built for embedded use cases. It has no whitelabeling capabilities and is licensed on a per-user basis which is not suitable for distributed or embedded use cases that have large, dynamic user bases.
Embedded is in Our DNA
