Amazon QuickSight announced Dataset-as-a-Source, a new feature that saves customers time and improves data governance. Dataset-as-a-Source allows users to create a new dataset using one or more existing datasets as input, and combine it with brand new data sources, such as other databases, CSV files, and apps like Twitter. Curators can create central datasets that Authors can reuse to create their own. Curators can control the definitions of business metrics in the central datasets, and Authors save time by getting a starting point to create new datasets themselves. If the dataset’s definition needs to be updated, Curators can make changes to the central datasets and dependent datasets get automatically updated. Dataset-as-a-Source can be used to combine datasets with Direct Query, SPICE, or a combination of the two. To learn more, visit here.
