What do you like best?

This is basically a well functioning tool but the best thing is extensibility. By adding plug-ins you can connect the tool to reporting tools such as Tableau or machine learning modules.

What do you dislike?

The desktop authoring tool often crashes. As the tool has been upgraded it got better but still it often becomes slow or crash. Considering this is a pipelining tool this must be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although Alteryx provides a lot of functionalities of data pipelining, consider to use this when you starts to struggle with too many SQLs and pipelines. This tool has some learning curve and transition cost. If your pipeline is not so complex and you have good analysts, it is not critical to use pipelining tool. Plus, this is an expensive product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using the tool for systemizing and optimizing clinical data extraction and report generation. A lot of messy SQLs and their metadata may be better managed by the tool.

What do you like best?

Interface enables users to easily access and prepare data for analysis or other use. Lots of analytical modules/tools with deep sophistication for analysis and modeling. Extensive capabilities to get creative, design and build custom solutions. Customer service typically responsive and knowledgeable Readily manages repetitive data functions efficiently.

What do you dislike?

Lacks detailed documentation making for a steep learning curve and inefficient use of time to complete basic functions at on-boarding. Poor charting (data visualization) and reporting features. In many cases it is quicker to use Excel to perform ad-hoc data tasks and analysis. Cost makes for a challenging ROI. An occasional software crash. Current version 11 appears more stable. Data product add-on falls short in value.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cost makes it most appropriate for the sophisticated, senior analysis. More functionality and tools than are typically required/needed at the cost. Start with a single license to train and ensure organizational ROI hurdles are met/attainable. We have experienced conflicts with the data in the data product add-on where data conflicts with third-party sources for auditing. alteryx explained these were timing/methodology issues. We use limited parts of the data plan that make it hard to justify the cost.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fisite uses alteryx to clean, organize, analyze and report on consumer survey data. Perform trade area analysis for retail clients. Analyze/model marketing data. Repetitive data preparation is more efficient.

What do you like best?

This is a wonderful software for manipulating extensive amounts of data (whereas Excel would typically crash with the same amount of data). The icons make it easy to use and visualize how the "equation" should be set up. Once you get the hang of it, it's very user friendly and helpful.

What do you dislike?

It is initially very confusing because it is nothing like Excel. It is not really intuitive (depending on your background), but can become easy in time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product but potentially not necessary if not working with large sets of data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my job, we work with millions of rows of data at a time, so the biggest benefit is manipulating data before exporting to an Excel sheet.

What do you like best?

Alteryx is very user friendly. Unlike Access, one can easily determine what to drag into the screen to complete a query.

What do you dislike?

It does not run as fast as the software company claims. We link Alteryx to Teradata in my office and it is faster than excel linking to Teradata, however, it is not light-years faster as they claim.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Alteryx is a cool tool. Once a user is versed in the tool it will be much easier to use than access or excel.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Alteryx is helping to provide a viable solution to report out on fill rates at our depots. The tool is being used to create better reports.

What do you like best?

The ability to automate

Alteryx is flexible and allows users to quickly integrate and coordinate multiple data sources .

This reduces helps reduce costs (and time spent) and improves access to data previously difficult to aggregate. Makes it easy to cleanse, analyse,join multiple data. Also very good in reducing human error as data is being manipulated.

What do you dislike?

Nothing specific I dislike about Alteryx. This a great automation tool of the future and i am sure that it will get better and better

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool to automate process that you perform regularly with standard/same inputs. I love the feature that you can input data directly from the oracle database

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automation of repetitive processes to save time that will be used by process owners to do more analytical and value add tasks.

-Eliminate human error during manipulation of data

What do you like best?

>Alteryx has fantastic blending capabilities

> it can interact with most popular databases and files available today

> It is the only ETL tool in the market that can output a tableau data extract (TDE)

> Alteryx is not just an ETL tool, it can be used to perform a whole lot of analytics on your data

> Alteryx integrates with R seamlessly and can be used for predictive modelling.

> It can also be used to build reports with prompt filters

What do you dislike?

> While Alteryx outputs a tableau data extract seamlessly it cannot read a similar extract

> it does not have good support for special characters

> it is not stable and crashes frequently when multiple users access the same workflow on the server

Recommendations to others considering the product

> One should consider using Alteryx as an extension to tableau since tableau lacks the modelling capabilities necessary for analyzing any dataset.

> Alteryx can make dealing with different data sources easy

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

> We have used Alteryx to prepare and cleanse data for the tableau desktop software

> We have been able to use alteryx as an extension of tableau for building data reports used for auditing the tableau visualization.
