Amazon QuickSight adds comparative and cumulative date/time calculations

Amazon QuickSight now supports comparative (e.g., year-over-year) and cumulative (e.g., year-to-date) time period functions. These new functions allow QuickSight authors to quickly implement advanced date/time calculations without having to use complicated row offsets or pre-computed columns, allowing these calculations to be added in regular business reporting, trend analysis and time series analysis.
