QuickSight Struggles on the Points That Matter Most
Embedded analytics is not the core competency of QuickSight
iFrame Only Embedding
AWS QuickSight offers iFrame embedding making it nearly impossible to have dashboards blend into a SaaS app.
AWS Experts Required
Like most AWS services, it requires experts to setup and manage as you will have to put your data pipeline together yourself.
Not In Your Environment
You do not have control of software updates and no integration with your SLDC. It will feel like a SaaS platform.
Common FAQs About AWS QuickSight for Embedded Analytics
AWS QuickSight’s embedded feature is only delivered via iFrames. When embedding dashboards with iFrame, you get minimal control over the look and feel and every tenant on a multi-tenant system will get the same experience.
AWS QuickSight is priced based on sessions and users. This licensing path is often a challenge for SaaS companies trying to grow as costs are unpredictable. Additionally, at a certain sizes the cost to license grows out of control making the expensive too great for a SaaS company trying to manage expenses.
When companies are looking for AWS QuickSight alternatives, it depends on the use case.
When the use case involves internal analytics (e.g. business units examining their own data), companies can evaluate alternatives such as Looker, PowerBI, Tableau, SiSense and others.
When the use case involves embedded analytics (e.g. enabling users of a multi-tenant SaaS application to build custom dashboards), Qrvey is the only option that provides a complete embedded analytics software that includes both the front-end visualization layer and a data management solution built with multi-tenant security controls natively included.
AWS QuickSight is designed for internal use cases (e.g. line of business reporting or by data analysts). While they do support embedding with a generic iFrame feature, it’s not multi-tenant ready.
Qrvey’s definition of multi-tenant ready includes features such as
- row/column level security
- APIs for passing in user permissions to customize a dashboard on the fly
- enabling users of one tenant to build a custom dashboard using custom data models specific to their tenant
- being able to deploy content (e.g. dashboards, datasets) to specific tenants to support use cases such as beta rollouts, MVP products, and premium user tiers that permission more advanced features
AWS QuickSight won’t be able to support these requirements either at all or without significant development and knowledge of additional AWS services which means more time and money.
