Cloud analytics front is heating up

Last week I attended Amazon Re invent where Amazon announced at the keynote their QuickSight tool for visual summary of data. Using QuickSight it is possible to get some first order statistics about the data (i.e. histograms) do some plotting and look at some slices of data using a visual interface.
See minute 32 of the below video:

Not surprisingly, Google just released a similar product called Cloud Data.

Many people ask me how those tools differ from GraphLab Create - while we do have a basic visual interface, we are focused on the high end machine learning models on top of the data and not just on visualizing it.

IBM have also joined the game by providing a version of their oldie SPSS on top of BlueMix.
