Amazon QuickSight is a scalable business intelligence (BI) service built for the cloud, which allows insights to be shared with all users in the organization. QuickSight offers SPICE, an in-memory, cloud-native data store that allows end-users to interactively explore data. SPICE provides consistently fast query performance and automatically scales for high concurrency. With SPICE, you save time and cost because you don’t need to retrieve data from the data source (whether a database or data warehouse) every time you change an analysis or update a visual, and you remove the load of concurrent access or analytical complexity off the underlying data source with the data.
