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.

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.
