Welcome to _Amazon QuickSight Deep Dive_! Amazon QuickSight is AWS's business intelligence, software-as-a-service offering. Businesses are collecting more data than ever, and the need to extract insights from that data is greater than ever, too. In this course, you will learn how to use QuickSight to create interactive and descriptive visualizations of your business data.
This course will cover both the technical aspects of administering QuickSight, as well as the skills necessary to author and share QuickSight insights. Before taking this course, you should have a conceptual understanding of AWS data services such as RDS, S3, and Athena and be comfortable navigating and provisioning resources in the AWS console. Basic knowledge of AWS networking and data analytics is recommended but not required.
By the end of this course, you will be able to provision QuickSight, connect to desired data sources, and derive insights through QuickSight visuals and dashboards.
