Amazon QuickSight June 2017 Update

Released on June 30th, 2017

New Features

Support for Amazon Redshift Spectrum

Starting today, Amazon QuickSight customers can leverage Amazon Redshift Spectrum to visualize and analyze vast amounts of unstructured data in their Amazon S3 “data lake” – without having to load or transform any data. In addition, customers can now visualize combined data sets that include frequently accessed data stored in Amazon Redshift and bulk data sets stored cost-effectively in Amazon S3 using the same SQL syntax of Amazon Redshift. 

Amazon Redshift Spectrum enables you to run Amazon Redshift SQL queries against exabytes of data in Amazon S3. Redshift Spectrum applies sophisticated query optimization, scaling processing across thousands of nodes so results are fast – even with large data sets and complex queries. 

Support for Federated Single Sign-On using SAML 2.0

Starting today, Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition customers can use Federated Single Sign-On (SSO) using SAML 2.0 to access QuickSight. This allows users to sign in to their Identity Provider portals with existing credentials and then access QuickSight with a single click, without having to enter any QuickSight-specific account names or passwords. With Federated SSO and QuickSight’s permissions-based just-in-time user provisioning capabilities, AWS administrators can use existing identity management mechanisms to enable QuickSight access for thousands of users with a few clicks. 

This feature is now available in all QuickSight regions – US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon) and EU (Ireland).
