Secure and simplify account setup and access management with new Amazon QuickSight administrative controls

Amazon QuickSight is a fully-managed, cloud-native business intelligence (BI) service that makes it easy to connect to your data, create interactive dashboards, and share these with tens of thousands of users, either within the QuickSight interface, or embedded in software as a service (SaaS) applications or web portals. Unlike many BI solutions in the market today, QuickSight requires no server deployments or management for scaling to tens of thousands of users, and authors build dashboards using a web-based interface, without any client downloads needed. QuickSight also supports private VPC connectivity to AWS databases and analytics services such as Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) and Amazon Redshift, and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions-based access to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Athena, making it secure and easy to access data in AWS via QuickSight.
