Hello, I'm Dylan, a cloud developer at West Loop Strategy, an AWS Partner. For the beginning of our AWS Analytics Expert Series, we are going to discuss QuickSight, and why your company should take advantage of it.

QuickSight is the first cloud based AI and Analytics platform brought to you by AWS. Rather than looking at tables of data in Excel, we want to tell a story with the data that will help guide a general manager, or a CFO, to build action plans that improve business efficiency and grow revenue. QuickSight is primarily three important tools. Datasets are the creation of your database view or table within QuickSight. Datasets are then used to build visualizations in a sandbox development style environment called an Analysis. Once an official report is built in the Analysis, it is published into a broad environment called a Dashboard that your users will access.

There are some major use cases enjoyed by our clients and their customers like contact center reporting, utilizing minute to minute tracking of metrics to handle daily patterns in employee and customer interactions. Or, they can utilize it for financial reporting, providing an executive summary style report to summarize any important company or client stats over the time period, and following up with a deep dive on comparison metrics for previous time periods showing growth or decline.

Thanks for joining us today. To learn more about how we help our clients use AWS Cloud Technology, check out our website and follow us on Linkedin.
