"Functioning and extensible analytics pipelining tool"

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.

"Useful ETL and Analytics at a Steep Price"

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 Self-Service Business Intelligence solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"End to end analytics in a single run..."

What do you like best?

It's pretty straightforward to get a grasp on your companies data, either it's small data like surveys or big data like millions of credit card transactions...

In a single solutions you can automate a report or a full predictive model and rerun without a hassle even deploy it in a few minutes is just unbelievable...

What do you dislike?

Should be able to utilize my computer's GPU cores instead of only CPU cores... some automated data prep and modelling options are needed...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Alteryx is super easy to learn, has well suited in-database capabilities to handle a lot of tasks a lot faster and cheaper than the competitors...

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

I use Alteryx for analytics driven management consulting projects, data quality scoring and cleansing followed by data enrichment using Census or spatial (location intelligence) data... This is input into time-series forecasting or predictive models and then to optimization models... All results in a continuous workflow and ends up with automated PDF reports and PowerPoint slides..

"Alteryx brings the Visio-like workflow paradigm to complex data normalization."

What do you like best?

Alteryx connects the dots better than any data mining/self-service program I know. It handles a lot of different data sources very easily (whether a flat file, OLAP cube, or database) and allows for normalization and data cleansing of multiple data sets. If your organization has several different systems of record, data feeds and master data tables, Alteryx will allow you to sort it all out without rewriting upstream programs or redesigning complex systems of record already in place.'

What makes it a pleasure to use is its Visio-like workflow layout - you can easily "connect" the process of your overall business workflow to a sub-process within Alteryx which takes you though each step like a flowchart.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't handle the ETL aspect very well since it's not really a database, and it doesn't have a very intuitive way to handle scheduling of workflow operations, and it doesn't have a section to manage things like lookup tables from a systemwide perspective. There is a fairly high learning curve considering the program is meant for non-experts. This product is most effectively used by data analysts, business analysts, and process/product owners.

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

Bringing disparate databases, systems of records, and transactional information into a harmonized end result that can be easily digested within BI tools and as well as end-user consumption.

"Great alternative to Excel when reviewing a large amount of data"

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.

"Alteryx Review"

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.

"Intuitive software for blending, prepping, and manipulating data"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to use. No coding experience necessary. Not only is this an amazing data preparation tool, it definitely optimizes your process in an automated fashion pushing for efficiency and consistency. Plus it can be fully documented allowing for compliance.

What do you dislike?

Alteryx is a bit pricey for a license. Although this is a data preparation tool, I can't help but point out the data visualization features are lacking.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are involved in analytics, I strongly recommend Alteryx. If you are an excel user, then Alteryx is definitely for you. The company's support team is amazing! They are always willing to help and their response time is less than a day.

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

I have definitely optimized and documented many of our weekly/monthly/quarterly processes. For instance, we have brought a report that takes 2 days to prepare down to 2 minutes.

"Alteryx great tool to automate processes"

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

"Alteryx- Blend your way to glory"

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.

"Must have tool for ETL and data science"

What do you like best?

ETL capabilities, data modeling capabilities using multisource, there is no limit to how many different sources you can connect to, data visualizations are also much better, R integration for data science capabilities which allows users who do not have experience in R programming to drag and drop and see the power of R, the free certifications with a final professional certification exam and learning materials available online.

What do you dislike?

Visualizations could be more better when compared to Tableau / power BI. They should have the property which allows other tools to access the transformed data into themselves to be used for visualization purposes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for an easy to use tool for ETL, visualizations and data science with R even if you don't have any experience in programming, look no further, this is the right tool.

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

Data cleansing from multiple sources, data transformation using different techniques, schema design usiing multiple sources, data modeling using multiple tables, ETL while cleansing data. Data science drag and drop features with R integration is easy to use, you may not know to code in R but you can still use the many awesome features of R via this tool

"Lightning fast analytics with Alteryx"

What do you like best?

Speed and ease of use. Very easy to use, even if you're not a programmer. And the speed at which is processes records is faster than anything I've worked with (SQL, Oracle, etc.).

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the new releases can be buggy. Seems they are quick to put out new releases without fully vetting them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out the community (community.alteryx.com). Lots of great stuff there to look through to get a feel for not only the product, but the helpfulness of the community. Usually the community members are more helpful than your assigned rep.

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

Blending and analyzing huge amounts of data very quickly, predictive analytical models, analytic apps for end-users that need not know anything about the software. Benefits are huge productivity increases which allows more deliverables.

"The most important tool in my toolkit"

What do you like best?

Alteryx has so many great aspects it's hard to choose, but at a core it would be the ability to take information from so many different sources and blend them into a single source. But it can also do some of the heavy-lifting on the analytics side and build repeatable processes with ease. It also can help users with some knowledge of stats but without a big programming chops to run some modeling, which is awesome.

What do you dislike?

The reporting is not that beautiful--you probably won't be making decks using Alteryx, but the data will be there for you!

The learning curve can be steep, as well. Be prepared to spend a good 2 weeks learning--but you should see value within the first day of playing around.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have at least 1 or 2 subject experts who will put in plenty of time to learn the software. This isn't something someone can pick up while only using it once or twice every few months.

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

Our main business problem is that we have a treasure trove of data sitting in a bunch of different sources that we don't know how to get value from--we have Google Analytics data, sales data from Amazon and our POS system, data from our website database... and all are just a little bit different. Using Alteryx, I was able to blend all the sources of data and create processes that update data from all of the sources on a schedule. No more having to go to source X and then source Y to get the information I need--it's all in the hands of the entire organization in a central repository.

Alteryx is also my go-to tool for ad hoc analyses that wouldn't be handled well through a dashboard-type tool... of customers who have purchased in the past 12 months in this market, how many repeat again and spend over $50? Of customers who visited us through paid search, how many also end up purchases in-store? These types of weird, custom asks are a breeze with Alteryx.

"Great and easy to use tool for large data"

What do you like best?

Easy to use inputs, lots of documentation available, love how I can use multiple data sources easily, great for automation!

What do you dislike?

Doesn't have many options for data visualization.

It can freeze at times especially with large workflows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check documentation, have some patience with the tool since it can get overwhelming when using it for the first time. There are lots of resources available in order for you to become an expert with this tool.

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

We have used this tool to automate some of the multiple source client reports that we have. Before we used to take 4 days in order to compile and QC the data. Now we only take 1 day!!

"Alteryx: Data Preparation and Blending Tool"

What do you like best?

Alteryx is a great data blending and data prep tool. It allows you to take data from different forms and very easily combine them into something that you can work with. This is all done through a workflow process with drag and drop tools. This makes it easy for the less technical people to transform their data without a steep learning curve. I also really like that there is a tool that turns all of the data blending that you have done into a tableau file that can be automatically imported into tableau and used there.

What do you dislike?

While touted as having great analytic capabilities, I found that Alteryx did not stand up to competitors like Tableau. The analytics capabilities that Alterx does have are a bit clunky and do not present a final product in a great way.

It is definitely more of a data prep/blend tool than an analytics tool, which I thought was not represented in the best way in its advertising.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great data prep and blending tool, however it is not ideal to be used for analytic purposes. Although it integrates fantastically with Tableau.

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

I have the need to access data that is in many different forms. From excel files to csv files, I have been having to manually add data to a master database file, all of this is very labor intensive. With Alteryx I can decide what data entries I need as well as delete duplicates, replace words and add columns, all automatically.

This tool saves me a lot of time, was easy to learn and reduces the redundancy of the work I do.

"Relatively New User"

What do you like best?

The interface and overall flow and feel of the product is excellent. The ability to abstract processing and to modularize is a useful software development model made more efficient by the clean, modular approach of the software. This lets users leverage prior modules and workflows effectively and somewhat transparently. This is useful in helping new users to train up on the system, helping put the examples into the context of your organization quickly by reviewing workflows and documents created by a few solo "Top Gun" users.

What do you dislike?

The product is quite expensive and would be more useful more broadly if it were less expensive per seat. This model makes it workable as a single seat,tool used by a "Top Gun", but difficult to provide to a more junior resource to become proficient. It is very complex, so it takes some time, even for a Top Gun to become expert. The product is self-evident in some ways, but has a great deal of power and complexity that must be discovered individually. Tutorials and learning modules are good, but could be more applicable to our industry and somewhat specialized use case. I would like to see even more tie-in with Salesforce, marketing analytics, demographics, etc.,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Explore the trial software, but it is very short-term.(14 days) If possible, see if you can meet with another customer or user that's been using it for some time (> 6 months) to see how it might fit into your organization. The license model makes it difficult to use broadly, but the ability to leverage prior development helps.

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

Analytics tying into workflows, using for marketing analytics and setting up machine learning solutions. Rapid prototyping. It may be useful as an intermediate layer between the UI and machine learning, R models that we may be using, or tying into Azure Machine Learning, etc.

"Great way to turn anyone with a bit of database experience into a data analyst."

What do you like best?

Alteryx makes it easy to connect multiple kinds of data sources together. CRM data can be joined to spreadsheets, and then uploaded into a postgres database that backs up Tableau.

What do you dislike?

Not so much a dislike, but it lacks server setup features in my opinion. In an analyst role, I'm still dependent upon IT to get me a box or AWS up and running.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you've ever been delayed on a project because you're waiting on your dysfunctional IT team to get it together or you know what needs to be done, but you're not sure you have the technical skills to do it, this is the product for you. I do wish the Alteryx server was less expensive. Between that and Tableau Online, you're looking at a large cash outlay every year.

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

Automation. I can build something once, then make it push button for data refreshes as often as I need. It's also modular, I can build components and recycle them in multiple different work flows.

"Alteryx is one of the best tools I've ever used"

What do you like best?

Alteryx allows you to automate so many redundant tasks. It allows your team to move faster, find insights, and pull data from multiple data sources

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I don't believe I have any complaints. The tool is amazing.

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

We use alteryx for everything. We have several processes that are now automated. For instance, Finance needs a report from me on a monthly basis. I have setup a workflow to run each month and email the report out to them without ever having to touch it again. This is a huge time saver.

"Altering X and Y with Alteryx"

What do you like best?

Easy drag and drop. Simple to get started with and learn as you grow.

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your homework. Compare against other vendors and know how a solution fits your needs.

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

Connecting with multiple data sources is fairly simple, as is cleaning the Data.

"Powerful ETL tool and easy Tableau Integration"

What do you like best?

The variety and depth of tools offered, as well as ease of use. Does not require any coding experience to use.

What do you dislike?

Slight learning curve to understand all the tools and some of the Statistical R packages aren't always straightforward.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For anyone who wants to take control of their data, the sky is the limit. Alteryx is a fantastic tool , but takes some getting used to.

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

Processing vast amounts of data, combined with algorithms for multivariable scoring/ranking. Some of the benefits realized are actually being able to extract data and process it quickly. Easily integrates with SQL Server and Tableau for robust data visualization.

"Cut down processing hours"

What do you like best?

The fact that we can create workflows for stuff that would take us days in excel that would take us minutes to process and get an output in alteryx. Totally changed the way we do work

What do you dislike?

The fact that we have to purchase additional capabilities--geomapping, etc.

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

Main problem is leveraging technology to streamline processes and work smarter, not harder. Technology is available to make our work easier, so we are leveraging readily available technology, that is also affordable. We have been able to cut so much processing time.

"Fantastic data blending and processing tool, especially for ETL, but also for prepping and reporting"

What do you like best?

Ease of use. You will need basic knowledge of data storage system you're planning on processing whether it's a database or a spreadsheet. You'll also need to understand what you need to do with the data to get to what you're after, but exploring and playing with the data until you figure out how to get there is extremely rewarding and intuitive and you'll pickup data patterns quickly as long as you understand your data. Also the customer support is incredible. There is also a thriving community and lots of self-help available. It's very reasonably priced relative to other similar solutions, but might still be perceived as expensive for small businesses.

What do you dislike?

There are a few bugs with certain specific edge cases that there really isn't a solution for, only work-arounds. I can't really give specific examples because they are so edge, but they will be the types of things where you have this really specific need and it just doesn't work for no good reason. It's very reasonably priced relative to other similar solutions, but might still be perceived as expensive for small businesses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Brave what seems like a steep learning curve and just play around with your data until you start to get a handle on how you can manipulate it. Not only is this tool crazy powerful, it will also give you new insight into how you can manipulate data.

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

We've done everything from a whole sale migration of our five individual production MySQL databases into a single SQL Server Database for a completely different ERP system, to complex business analysis and automated reporting. The only thing this tool doesn't really do well is visualizing data, but Alteryx can natively work with Qlik and Tableau data files, so, if you also use one of those, you're set.

"The best data manipulation software I have ever used"

What do you like best?

The speed of data processing (spatial/data analysis, file conversion, etc.) is faster than any other software I have used before. I like that Alteryx incorporates multiple functions including those for data analysis, statistical analysis, spatial analysis, and mapping. I primarily use Alteryx because of the superiority of the software and ease of going from one function to another. I can also convert the format of a file to a variety of formats for use in many other programs. As someone who primarily uses Alteryx to manipulate spatial and non-spatial data in a number of formats, I have found that Alteryx can view and manipulate almost every data format that I have ever used.

What do you dislike?

I think that the mapping functions could be improved. The mapping tools are not as intuitive and I find that the mapping functions are a bit limited compared to other mapping software. I also find that CASS updates can be a little irritating because we have to download an update every 2 months and sometimes we are not provided with a download link. Even though the geocoder within Alteryx is very good compared to others, it isn't as accurate as it should be sometimes. For example, a location that geocodes at the street level (100%) isn't always spot on with the location.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should use Alteryx if you are working with large data in a variety of formats and would like to quickly manipulate/analyze data.

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

"Great tool for data blending."

What do you like best?

It has a user-friendly interface and a GUI interface, it´s quite powerfull and the on line training for starting is great.

What do you dislike?

At the end, as any ETL or analytics tool the complexity is the requirements and in the data layer that you have to connect.

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

It´s good to automate datablending task and quick analysis for advanced users. It´s not a corporate ETL solution.

"Awesome Software"

What do you like best?

Alteryx has the ability to do so much more computing than excel. I love that it supports numerous file types and can create all types of different outputs.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit confusing to learn at first, however the help functions are excellent

Recommendations to others considering the product

"AMAZING and useful for all types of data convergence! "

What do you like best?

First and foremost it is impossible to list all of the things that I love about Alteryx. If forced to choose a couple, I think that the spatial manipulation would be one of my favorite features along with Macro creation. I am able to switch easily between .TAB, .shp, .kml, and geo-databases to create beautiful visualizations for my clients. Batch mapping functionality has never been easier. Creating Macros for models also is amazing. Simply cutting down the already short Alteryx processing times and making modifications within the Macro make it easy to batch outputs for a diverse set of clientele. Drivetime functions, CASS demographic pulls, geocoding and applying and analyzing statistic models are all some of my favorite uses within Alteryx.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the problems that occur when updating my data sets. CASS Licencing always seems to give me issues. I also dislike the functionality within the Render and Layout tools. When adding legends, insets, graphs, etc... I always have to spend hours on tweaking to find the correct output format. I also would like to be able to export my outputs to multiple sheets within one excel spreadsheet. Another problem I have had is with .dat format files. Even with using the deliminators I have problems loading those files. Also, I would really like to be able to dock my comment boxes to the background so I do not have to continue moving them every time I need to change a feature that the box is describing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The more you play with the tools, the more you will learn. There are so many ways to do one thing and experimentation only helps find the most efficient.

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

Consumer trends, store maturity, trade area extents, customer drive times, model built processes for site evaluation...Basically all business problems I am using Alteryx to solve. I am just starting to scratch the surface of all the uses and benefits of Alteryx.

"101 ways to make my work easier"

What do you like best?

I love using Alteryx. I use it just about every day for something I am working on. I use it mostly for data cleansing and data manipulation, I work with a lot of client data that come from multiple files but need to be combined into one concise and clean file. Alteryx just makes my life a lot easier when dealing with this much data at once. I also use Alteryx for geocoding and demographic information. We utilize Alteryx for gathering Lat/Longs for client locations and customer locations. This roles into another function I have used a lot which are the reporting functions. I have made some great maps plotting customer spotting and store trade areas to help our clients visualize how their locations are doing in the market. The thing I love the most about Alteryx is there are 101 ways to complete your task.

What do you dislike?

I would say that the thing I dislike about Alteryx is it is not a 100% intuitive product. The help guides and sample modules are great but there is still quite a learning curve for new users. I would like to see more information within the tools themselves to help users understand how to utilize them to their fullest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend Alteryx for anyone that needs a software to make managing and manipulating data or creating geo-spatial modules.

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

I am using Alteryx to assist in cleaning up and manipulating data as well as geocoding and utilizing the demographic information in Allocate.

"Great program and easy to use!"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that there is the ability to create high volume data tables across different data platform types (i.e. SQL tables to Excel files, Tableau Extracts, etc.) All of the tools are easy to use and it was a breeze for a SQL/Access user like me to change to this higher quality data processing and analytical tool! I don't think I would enjoy switching back to the previously popular formats of SQL, SSRS, or Access.

What do you dislike?

To do a true "left" or "right" join you have to use a union tool with the join tool and it can sometimes convolute the data if you do not group and sum data correctly after the join and union occur. What could be one step in SQL becomes three.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are currently using SQL, SSRS, or Access to create reporting or analyze critical business data, you will be very impressed with Alteryx and I almost guarantee you will never go back to using those "antiquated" formats again! It is simple for even the most beginner user to learn and makes complicated data structuring and analysis a breeze.

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

One of the major benefits has been efficient data processing and presentation to answer urgent business questions that could have taken at least a week to answer previously! It is easier to answer simple questions related to YOY performance and analyze customer behaviors with a few simple tools and the click of a button. Automating reports is a breeze with the output tools and can be transferred to so many different formats! My favorite output would be the tableau data extract. Tableau dashboards are easy, seamless, and effortless to update!

"Heavy user; experienced building custom modules for a number of different applications"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and the interface are outstanding. The tool layout is easy to follow, the structure is simple, and the power is unreal. Whether the task is simple and straightforward or difficult and complex, the application and use of the software is the same...user-friendly and powerful.

What do you dislike?

Some of the functionality and set-up of the reporting tools is less than ideal, and I believe there could be more options/application for the formatting of outputs. However, this pales in comparison to everything that Alteryx can (and does) do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. Puts all other data reporting and analysis tools to shame!

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

Manipulating large amounts of data in a user-friendly environment. Streamlining pre-existing processes by automating reports in Alteryx to provide more time to focus on analysis of data rather than data preparation. The benefits are endless and new ones are realized on a daily basis.

"Alteryx Broadened My Horizons"

What do you like best?

Alteryx is very robust and very fast (when running on a very speedy server). As a developer, I used to use Coldfusion in order to run multiple processes that read in lists and manipulate them. Alteryx has the tools to not only replicate these processes, but to do them in a fraction of the time it would take our ColdFusion server. It is also allowing us to do things that, as a company, were weren't able to offer in the past.

What do you dislike?

Alteryx isn't without its faults. There are still some frustrating bugs and just strange practices that end up causing giant headaches. For example, if you have a saved module open, go to another module, and then back to the original module, it marks it as having a change made to it (and thus prompting a save when closing), regardless if there was any change made. This is incredibly frustrating if you can't remember if you actually made a real change or not. Additionally, it lets you open up multiple versions of the same file without any kind of prompt (and similarly lets you save on of them while another instance of it is open). Little things like this (and other larger issues like crashing and the Red X of Death on your properties window that prevents you from doing anything) are small blemishes on an otherwise great product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't hesitate to use Alteryx. We've compared it with other similar products, and as a company, we've found this to be the best one out there. It will take some getting used to, but it's a generally simple tool that takes a short time to learn, but will always surprise you with new tools and features.

I'd also suggest checking out Alteryx's Inspire Event that they hold each year. I learned so much from all of their classes, and even one-on-one sessions with the developers and rest of the team. It's really worth every penny, and it can be a lot of fun (my company had a blast at the Grand Prix Competition).

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

Currently, we're using Alteryx for many various aspects... from simple things such as reading in lists and writing them to a table in MySQL, to more complex issues like pulling data from multiple sources, cleaning the data, performing operations, and then outputting that data into calgary databases, excel files, or even tableau data extracts. As a company, by using Alteryx, we've been able to do things faster, and it has given us a step above the competition.

"Great tool, helps with day-to-day tasks as well as ad-hoc requests."

What do you like best?

Alteryx is very easy to use with a intuitive graphical interface. It is an all encompassing piece of software that has a wide range of tools that allow you to do everything needed without jumping from program to program. Because of this, the tool gives you the opportunity to get very creative with data.

What do you dislike?

There are some minor bugs, sometimes culminating into a random crash so saving frequently is very necessary. It is also relatively slow when dealing with big data, especially spatial data. The reporting tools are lacking in appearance, they look like some clip-art done in a 90's version of Word.

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

Alteryx helps with ETL processes as well as customer analytics. It's ease of use helps automate data streams quickly. The wide range of tools helps discover customer behavior and determine recommendations for clients.

"Data analysis and reporting savior"

Ease of use (I'm not super technical and can still understand and use it). Quick data analysis and viewing and/or reporting capabilities. Simplified user interface for non-technical users.

We are still new to using it but there's SO much functionality that the only downfall is finding the time/resources to use it to its fullest potential.

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

Applying demographic and behavioral data. Excellent, customizable presentations and reports.
