"Data Analytics Tool Saving Me Hours"

What do you like best?

The non-coding-heavy interface of Alteryx makes it easy to use, even without a computer-science background. It has a very good GUI, and the tools are well-defined and easy to understand. Alteryx capably handles massive datasets, manipulates them with ease, and helps join disparate data to form more meaningful outputs that aid in decision processes.

What do you dislike?

There are several things in Alteryx that could be made better. For example, if I want to prepend a date to an output Excel file, it would be nice to simply have a checkbox option on that output tool that says "prepend today's date to file". Currently, I have to use a formula tool that incorporates the text of the entire file path, a DateTimeNow function, as well as the rest of the file name as text, and then choose to "Replace Entire File Path" from X field to do the same thing that a simple checkbox could accomplish. I'm sure the backend coding isn't so simple, but given the massively complicated tools already built into Alteryx, I'm sure it is possible.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you currently use Informatica, Alteryx is a huge step forward, especially in its transparency of operations and ease of implementation of scheduled workflows and shared workflows.

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

I use Alteryx to assemble, clean, and join multiple sources of supply chain data into a single database that can be analyzed against internal and external necessities. Instead of relying on multiple individuals to create, interpolate, and send me data, Alteryx allows me to connect to both source databases and off-line files, and has the tools to automate the cleaning and prep of those data. Furthermore, Alteryx has advanced transposition, summarization, and union/join tools that allow me to pull together all data related to our company's list of SKUs, allowing for a one-stop shop for analysis with the formula tools and other predictive analysis tools.

"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 or IoT sensor data....

In a single solution, Alteryx Designer you can automate an ETL process, an interactive report or a full predictive/prescriptive model. Rerun without a hassle, turn it into an API and share or even deploy it in a few minutes thru a scoring engine, it is just unbelievable...

What do you dislike?

Should be able to utilize my computer's GPU cores instead of only CPU cores...

Some additional automated data prepping like parsing HTML tables is needed for ease of use.

There are a lot of predictive, time-series, clustering modelling options ok, but additional automated modelling and hyper-parameter tuning without coding is 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... You don't need to license and additional server for claculations.

All expensive calculations can be handled throu your existing investments like MySQL, SQL Server, Teradata, Orcale, SAP Hana, Hadoop etc.

What 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 then become an input into time-series forecasting or predictive models and then to linear, mixed integer optimization models...

All work is prepared in a continuous workflow and resulting tables and graphs and full reports can be pushed to PDF reports, PowerPoint slides, native Qlik and Tableau files...

One single platform to perform Data Cleansing, Blending from multiple sources, All complex Analytics with Reporting.

It also allows sharing data in required output format.

What do you dislike?

There is no learning module for all tools in Prescriptive,Predictive toolsets.

Alteryx doesnt provide very attractive dashboards for better visual analytics.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would suggest people to try out Alteryx as it proves beneficial over traditional methods of data analytics. Its less complex to use and time saving.

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

I have been analyzing my organizations Financial Data regularly.

"Nice data analytics tool with missing features"

What do you like best?

Alteryx processes data quite well, it can be connected to various data sources or local files. The import function is very well written and it is not confusing at all. It has rich features, great deal of different analytics and tools to further manipulate data. The processing speed is also fine, I never found myself in a situation whereby I had to wait too much for an analytics to run.

What do you dislike?

All the above positives with a price (literally) as Alteryx is quite expensive compared to similar tools on the market. Working with Tableau is sometimes difficult (e.g.: reading Tableau data). The visualization of analytics result is terrible, it feels like an ancient solution (especially for mapping output). There is only little documentation available when new features come out so it is difficult to be up to date with software updates

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a nice tool to work with huge data sets, great import and analysis functions, but not the best when it comes to interpretation. Please have a look at the plenty of other tools as it can be quite expensive, especially if it does not fit to your organizations needs

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

Alteryx is a good tool for data manipulation and data analytics. The tool is intuitive and easy to use. Using this tool makes the life of my department much more easier than before. We use this product for data extraction, ETL processes, automation, etc. and it has its own pros and cons, but all in all, we like the product

"Great Data Analytics Tool"

What do you like best?

Alteryx manages data imports quite well, it can be connected to various data sources or local files. It has rich features, great number of different analytics and tools to further manipulate data. The processing speed is also great, I never found myself in a situation whereby I had to wait too much for an analytics to run.

What do you dislike?

Alteryx is quite expensive compared to similar tools on the market. The visualization of analytics result is terrible, it feels like an ancient solution (especially for mapping output). Also there is only little documentation available when new features come out so it is difficult to be up to date with software updates.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a good tool to work with huge data sets, great import and analysis functions, but not the best when it comes to interpretation. Have a look at the plenty of other tools as it can be quite expensive, especially if it does not fit perfectly to your organizations needs.

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

Alteryx is a great tool for data manipulation and data analytics. The tool is quite intuitive and easy to use. Using this tool makes the life of my department much more easier than before. We use this product for data extraction, ETL processes, automation, etc.

"Great for big data manipulation "

What do you like best?

The capacity to make a work process that can be computerized when it is done. This is something that Tableau Prep can not give us a chance to do at the present time. The assortment and profundity of instruments offered, just as usability. Does not require any coding background to utilize. For the most part, the product is more clear.

What do you dislike?

Been great so far but hard to build sql queries natively which can be annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a decent information mixing apparatus. It is anything but difficult to learn and actualize. Its spare increasingly manual preparing time. Put it all on the line.

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

Coordinating outside records to inward client databases. Acknowledged immense time investment funds and expanded precision. Help with tidying up and controlling information just as geocoding and using the statistic data in Allocate. For the most part, I utilize it for huge information pulls, consolidating numerous informational collections, making informational indexes, contrasting informational collections.

"Alteryx at one year using"

What do you like best?

Easy to learn, find help, training and turning over workflows to colleagues. It connects to a lot of file types and databases. The learning curve is similar to Excel in that you can start with what you need at the moment and continue to increase your skills thru video, live training and the community.

What do you dislike?

The next step to server is complex and could be improved by a local server development environment, but this is not a must have by any means.

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

I am managing multiple file sources, blending, validating and controlling updates. This is a time saver and allows me to do more. Alteryx self documents and is easy to turn over to others to perform the processes which I develop.

"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 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 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.

"Incredibly powerful and I only use about 1% of its capabilities"

What do you like best?

Ease of joining multiple salesforce tables without having to know SQL

What do you dislike?

The automated scheduler is an additional charge

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Plan to invest some time learning the basics of the tool. There is definitely a learning curve, but there are tons of benefits once you learn how to leverage Alteryx.

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

I use Alteryx to structure and populate data for all of my Tableau dashboards. I can now build out my own data sets without burdening my IT team with SQL requests. This has allowed me to build out data and analyze issues much quicker than in the past.

"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 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 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 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 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.

"So Many Uses!"

What do you like best?

I can use Alteryx for almost anything! It it much easier to manipulate and match data in Alteryx than other platforms such as excel. I can combine data from different sources and file types. It has so many tools to join, match, compare, and transform data. My favorite tools are the fuzzy matching and summary tools. I also really love the data cleansing features.

What do you dislike?

It does take some time to get to know how to use alteryx. There are so many tools and more than one way to achieve the same result. However they have good basic training materials to get you started and a decent community for more complicated questions.

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

The main reason we chose Alteryx is because it has Fuzzy matching capabilities. This allows us to match leads to sales reports using company names that may not be listed exactly the same. This has allowed us to create ROI reports that we were unable to do before. Once I started using Alteryx I realized I can use it for so many different things. It has replaced excel for so many projects and has made it possible for me to quickly maneuver data in ways I was not able to before.

"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 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

"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 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 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.

There isn't a lot I dislike to be fully honest, but I would say the input tools could be better.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Amplify integration into Tableau workbooks, or include data visualization techniques

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

I am optimizing the efficiency of healthcare organizations using Alteryx

"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 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.

"Simplify and Expedite Excel"

What do you like best?

Alteryx is basically Excel on steroids. It's able to manage large quantities of data and manipulate it quickly. It allows you to annotate every step of the way and maintains data integrity as you can click through step-by-step and see every change that was made.

What do you dislike?

Alteryx can be a little intimidating to those at first, but once you get the hang of it it's pretty user friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the trainings and join the Alteryx community. You can find very helpful answers there to your solutions as it's likely someone else already had the same issue.

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

Alteryx allows us to comb through mass amounts of data quickly (seconds/minutes vs hours/days) and saves a ton of time from manual manipulation. By automating data manipulation, we also eliminate human error.

"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 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 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.
