Makes data prep and predictive analysis a breeze

2016-12-05

Alteryx changed all that and building workflows that preps the data and spits out a clean dataset or report complete with forecasts etc. can all be done without coding and in a visual way that anyone can understand and see what's been done and where leading to the greater confidence the data is right.

Pros

Easy to use interface, extremely flexible for data analysis tasks, self-documenting, very fast on large data sets

Cons

Automating workflow is an additional cost

Quick and easy way to move from data exploration and blending to analysis and insight

2017-12-05

This software, especially the predictive analytics piece, gave me new insight into my data.

Pros

An abundance of available nodes make it simple to pull in data from many different sources, merge, union, filter, sort, and even perform statistical or predictive analysis on your data, and then disseminate it to the proper stakeholders.

Cons

Alteryx may be better suited to fields other than education; however, I can still find good use cases for it in my job.

Joe Root

A fantastic ETL, data munging, data prep, and data processing tool

2017-12-12

Alteryx works extremely well with a multitude of BI and database solutions and would be a great fit for any team trying to speed up the typical daily grind of data prep and ETL so their analytics and data team can be more agile, accurate, and automated.

Pros

Data ingestion: Alteryx is capable of connecting with a multitude of data sources from SQL databases to cloud-hosted solutions like Salesforce, Tableau, or Google Analytics. Also supports OleDB & ODBC connections.

Cons

Previously I had to restart the Alteryx service on my machine at least once a week, which meant my workflows weren't running while the service had been stuck and data wasn't moving.

Significantly easier big data manipulations

Pros

Great functionality for handling large data sets - makes processes that would take substantial time with Excel / SQL more manageable

Powerful tool - Excel but with a better data capacity

2018-04-01

Pros

Works with large size data - I have used 10GB files as well!

Cons

1. Whenever I run alteryx flow, numbers become string when I open them in excel. So everytime I have to remember to add one more step to change them back to numeric which is a little cumbersome 2. A few features are difficult to understand - help topics could have been more elaborate

Alteryx is a great software! So many uses, and really easy to learn.

2018-03-05

Pros

I like how many different ways I can get data into Alteryx, and all the easy manipulation that you can do both with and without SQL coding experience.

Cons

I would like to see the Period Table of Alteryx with more detail, or a decision tree on inputs and outputs and uses to help figure out the best tools to use.

Alteryx is the most frequently used software at my office.

2015-03-31

Pros

The inputs are easy to use, the tools are easily understood and well described in the help files and they easily connect with one another.

Cons

The transition to newer versions of Alteryx is much too complicated when you have to skip a few of the in-between versions, which my company often does.

If you are looking for a clear way to visualize the steps required to carry out the steps in your analysis, if you want to be able to incorporate spatial files into the same process as you want to use R, or if you just want an easy to use program that allows a lot of flexibility with the data, this is the best out there.
