Alteryx Overview

What is Alteryx?

Alteryx is a data analytics platform designed as a comprehensive self-service solution for business data analysts. Spanning three integrated products, Alteryx represents an intuitive workflow for data blending from numerous sources, building predictive models and then sharing those insights. Forming an enterprise-level hub, Alteryx Server provides centralized analytics deployment and share options, securely hosted to encourage effective collaboration across teams. Whether supporting 10 users or 10,000 users, Alteryx Server boasts a scalable architecture running on-premises or within the cloud as required. Analysts can then store and distribute analytics workflows or apps in a centralized private environment, adding version controls, administration governance and extended developer capabilities with Alteryx API.

Alteryx Designer is 64-bit Windows software that speeds and eases the process of gathering, cleansing, blending and reporting data. Designer provides access to data from virtually any source spanning data warehouses, databases, ERP/cloud-based apps, Hadoop data stores, Microsoft Office files, social media services or sister analytics platforms such as SPSS/SAS. This wealth of data can then be intuitively blended using visual scripting tools, rapidly generating advanced spatial analytics and rich insight reporting within one workflow. Utilizing over 30 predictive tools based on the open source R statistical language, Alteryx Designer requires no specialized programming knowledge thanks to intuitive drag-and-drop editing.

Analytic apps specifically can then be published or collaboratively customized using the cloud-based Alteryx Analytics Gallery. Save workflows in a centralized, version-controlled repository and restrict access permissions to certain user groups. Discover best practice apps published to the Public Gallery, making organizational app consumption as easy and user-friendly as navigating familiar commercial mobile app stores.

Massive time saving on Analytical function as well as improvement in accuracy with data from disparate data sources

Alteryx - Take back control of your Data.

Our experience with this product is that it has transformed our ability to analyse, consume, and report on our data in a way that make sense to the business. We have been able to develop a business-centric Datawarehouse where all our cleansed data is stored and can then be queried or reported on, without the need to employ expensive data scientists or developers. Alteryx has truly revolutionised how see and use our data and this in turn has empowered the business to making the right decisions at the right time.

An extraordinarily ETL tool

In conclusion, Alteryx is a great solution for all the data wrangling and joins activities. It has helped my team to create data models faster and easier. I have not used the analysis and ML capabilities that it offers, but for my use case, I find it very helpful.

Easy, Pricy but Worth it

I'm a Technology Consultant, using ALteryx for ETL projects where analyse the data is a critical job and the size of the data, wouldn't allow me to use tools like excel . Alteryx it has been a great tool for all my jobs, let in me stand out with fast and quality solution.

Massive time saving on Analytical function as well as improvement in accuracy with data from disparate data sources

Pros

Ease of implementation, fantastic product support. Great assistance from Altyrex - committed resources at no cost to help implement, train etc. A lot of willingness to help us 'prove' the business case - i.e. make a success of the pilot project. Workshops ran in business helped getting a number of other business functions exposed and on board in support of the product. Willingness to negotiate on price as well as providing trial licences to other functions for a period of time to enable usage uptake. Willingness to understand business problem assisted greatly in successful deployment. Ease of deployment in 'non-analytics' environment was a big enabler. What is great is that it is process flow based and no extensive coding experience is required. Now busy with further business case projects in other parts of the business.

Cons

The cost initially seems exorbitant - especially as there are alternatives such as KNIME & Rapid Miner. Value delivered however overcame this barrier.

Pros

Alteryx is an incredible powerful analytics tool that allows users to input source data, manipulate, clean and transpose that data, then output into a Datawarehouse or other database. Despite the complexity of this product it has a great user interface and this makes it easier to learn and you are able to get up and running in a very short amount of time.

Cons

Still lacks some basic functionality, like an in-built tool for creating SQL views or a tool that can run multiple workflows in sequence (like Crew macro).

Pros

Alteryx offers great capabilities for data prep, blending and processing intuitively. It's possible to connect to a wide variety of data sources. Also, It offers visual and table data to help you visualize the results and profile the data you're using. Furthermore, flows are very easy to understand what's going on and are exportable to formats such as direct SQL queries.

Cons

There's a learning curve to understand all the components that Alteryx offers. However, there's great documentation out there to learn.

Pros

The most i like is the Easy drag and drop function that the application has. The design and how visual it is to keep the Information flow, makes Alteryx a great app for data analysis, formatting and design. Built in tool like time Formaters, filters and Joins facilitate the work of doing data cleansing and data prepping for any ETL job. Another great area is how flexible it is input and output formats. It lets you join CSV files with XLS or even TXT.

Cons

The least I like is the price and the latency when loading the data. Because is a strong and powerful Tool, it is a bit pricey in one hand, is not a tool for one day job, is more for enterprise and daily jobs. When loading the data, depending where is located the document, it will take longer than usual.
