Actionable Insights with Amazon QuickSight

By: Manos Samatas

Overview of this book

Amazon Quicksight is an exciting new visualization that rivals PowerBI and Tableau, bringing several exciting features to the table – but sadly, there aren’t many resources out there that can help you learn the ropes. This book seeks to remedy that with the help of an AWS-certified expert who will help you leverage its full capabilities. After learning QuickSight’s fundamental concepts and how to configure data sources, you’ll be introduced to the main analysis-building functionality of QuickSight to develop visuals and dashboards, and explore how to develop and share interactive dashboards with parameters and on-screen controls. You’ll dive into advanced filtering options with URL actions before learning how to set up alerts and scheduled reports. Next, you’ll familiarize yourself with the types of insights before getting to grips with adding ML insights such as forecasting capabilities, analyzing time series data, adding narratives, and outlier detection to your dashboards. You’ll also explore patterns to automate operations and look closer into the API actions that allow us to control settings. Finally, you’ll learn advanced topics such as embedded dashboards and multitenancy. By the end of this book, you’ll be well-versed with QuickSight’s BI and analytics functionalities that will help you create BI apps with ML capabilities.

Congratulations on completing this chapter, which is the final chapter of this book.

In this chapter, we learned about multitenancy in Amazon QuickSight. We also looked closely at an example architecture that allows multiple tenants to access embedded assets in QuickSight through a web portal. Then, we focused on QuickSight namespaces, and we learned how to configure them. Finally, we looked at two hands-on examples to understand how namespaces prevent users from sharing assets, and how an Admin user can configure common assets for users in different namespaces.

You should now understand the fundamental concepts of multitenancy in Amazon QuickSight, and you should know how to use the AWS CLI to create namespaces and organize your different tenants.

Before you close this book, please ensure that all AWS resources created for this book and its exercises are shut down to prevent charges to your AWS account.

I want to thank you for your time, and I hope this book met...
