Amazon QuickSight, a component of Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a cloud-based serverless business intelligence platform that allows users to create visualizations and dashboards. QuickSight takes advantage of machine learning to identify anomalies in data and make predictions through its ML Insights feature.
QuickSight supports a variety of data sources, such as individual databases (Amazon Aurora, MariaDB, and Microsoft SQL Server), data warehouses (Amazon Redshift and Snowflake), and SaaS sources (Adobe Analytics, GitHub, and Salesforce).
