AWS releases Amazon QuickSight Q to empower customers searching for answers to business questions
Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com, Inc. company, is releasing Amazon QuickSight Q, a new capability in Amazon QuickSight that gives anyone in an organization the ability to ask business questions using natural language and receive accurate answers with relevant visualizations to gain insights from the data.
Amazon QuickSight Q does not depend on prebuilt dashboards or reports to deliver visualizations, which removes the need for business intelligence (BI) analysts to update a dashboard every time a new business question arises, so anyone can ask their questions and receive visual answers in seconds.
Customers can easily refine the way Amazon QuickSight Q understands questions (and thus produces answers) with an easy-to-use editor, which removes the need for complex data preparation before users can ask questions of data in natural language, according to the vendor.
Amazon QuickSight Q uses machine learning to interpret the intent of a question and analyze the correct data to provide accurate answers to business questions quickly.
Amazon QuickSight Q also provides auto-complete suggestions for key phrases and business terms, and automatically performs spell checking and acronym/synonym matching, so users do not have to worry about typos or remembering the exact business terms for their data. There are no upfront commitments to use Amazon QuickSight Q, and customers only pay for the number of users or queries.
Customers like Amazon QuickSight’s ability to automatically interpret and describe what the data in a BI dashboard means in plain language, but these customers also want the ability for any user to ask business questions of their data in plain language and receive accurate answers and relevant visualizations, according to the vendor.
Amazon QuickSight Q gives anyone access to powerful analytics with the ability to ask business questions of their data in natural language and receive accurate answers with relevant visualizations in seconds.
“Customers love that Amazon QuickSight makes it easy for them to perform advanced analytics without prior data science experience, and they’re using it in ways that are surprising and delightful,” says Matt Wood, VP of business analytics, AWS. “Now, with Amazon QuickSight Q, anyone within an organization has the ability to ask natural language questions and receive highly relevant answers and visualizations. For the first time, anyone can tap into the full power of data to make quick, reliable, data-driven decisions to plan more efficiently and be more responsive to their end users.”
