Alteryx Valuable Features

Senior Capacity Planner at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

Right away we knew this has a lot of value, even from the perspective of data manipulation and automation. 

There are all sorts of use cases that we could come up with. It does take a little bit of learning and figuring out how to work the tool, however, we've been really successful with it. I even went and presented at one of their conferences our use case. 

Automation is the most valuable aspect for us. The ability to wrap business logic around the data is very helpful. 

It not only helps us with efficiency. You can also flip the steps apart to make that data flow in various ways. 

Most tasks run in less than two minutes and provide us with what we need very quickly. I can wrap rules around the data to look for certain things or to notify people. 

The amount of manual labor that we're saving by writing those workflows is huge.

The scheduling feature for the automation is excellent. The machine learning suite has been pretty useful in terms of building models. I've been exploring it for a while. The in-database tools are extremely useful as well.

The interfaces are perfect.

The solution is easy to set up.

The stability is quite good. 

We have found that the scalability is good and very easy to handle.

  • The codeless concept and speed of processing are unique. Super intuitive to use and easy to master. No coder needed.
  • I did not find a data source that I could not connect to yet.
  • In/out, preparation, blending, parsing, and transformation tools are the fundamental ones to start analysis.
  • Spatial operations and analytics are super powerful for analysis which requires these types of models/operations.

The stability is very good. It hasn't given us any issues.

The scalability has been great.

Technical support is very helpful.

There's no single feature I can think of that stands out as being the most valuable, but we've worked on multiple areas such as analytical apps, especially to connect with Facebook, LinkedIn, and multiple other online data APIs. We also use batch macros to automate and repeat steps many times over. These two features help us a lot. They are slightly more advanced, so it's not for a regular user, but these are the areas where people ask for assistance.

I am the sales guy. I don't work with the product every day. However, I hear from my customers that they like the easy-to-use interface. Another feature they like is the In-database feature, and, right now, the new intelligence suite add-on they delivered a couple of years ago.

The support is very good.

I like the fact that you can easily blend data from different platforms. That is one nice feature.

Additional comment: You can connect multiple input tools to different platforms and use joins/union to either concatenate or blend data in a seamless fashion.

The feature that I have found most valuable for Alteryx is its geo-referencing feature, it is very good. I use it a lot, especially for supply chain. For finance, we have data landing which we look at a lot. There are models to help improve matching data and more realistic intuition on the data we have.

It is very easy. It is very straightforward. Sometimes you need a bit of help, but it's more like it fixes itself. So if you are used to handling data, it should be very, very easy.

Senior Data Architect, Total Rewards Analytics and Insights at a retailer with 10,001+ employees

Overall, I'd have to say the tool is pretty awesome.

The solution offers very good data transformation.

Users are able to read in from any source, combine heterogeneous sources, and providing output or input to the next downstream step. You can put these things together or you can create very complex or simple flows and then tie them together. 

The scheduling within the solution is excellent. 

The initial setup is straightforward.

The philosophy of the citizen data scientist is the key piece, which means the no-code analytics capability. This is the feature that attracted us the most.

The connectors are a very good feature and Alteryx can connect to a lot of data sources and there are a lot of options. We can use the ready-made models in the solution for advanced analytics, and we can also include our custom scripts. It gives a lot of flexibility and there are a lot of characters that are available. It's a very user friendly product.

QA Validation at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees

All of the data science features in terms of unioning and joining data together are valuable. The formula tools are good, and it provides an easy way to summarize data. 

It has some really good, solid, basic reporting functions. 

It's not as robust as a lot of the dynamic interactive tools, but it certainly gets into the more static reporting very effectively.

Commercial Intelligence Coordinator at a international affairs institute with 5,001-10,000 employees

The product's Macros probably are one of the most useful aspects. It's obviously useful overall if you just combine all the tools, however, in terms of usability, the Macros really stand out. 

Using the Alteryx scheduler, and the use of Rtools for machine learning is very helpful.

These are all a bit more advanced, in terms of tools, however, they make for a very good user experience.

I think the most valuable feature for Alteryx in a health facility is that it permits cleaning, organizing, and merging of databases such as Excel and Access. This is very valuable for us since we have many databases.

SS
Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees

The modelling features are very good in Alteryx and better than what you'd find in open-source software. Python and R rule the market. Although Alteryx is a paid software, it is equally able to provide better performance without writing a single line of code. That's the USP of the software as such. It's very user friendly.

Data processing is most valuable. It is one of the fastest data blockers out there in the market, which is a fascinating thing about Alteryx.

It's quite user-friendly, which I enjoy.
