We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The solution has excellent drag and drop functionality. There's no need for coding.""The scheduling feature for the automation is excellent.""Alteryx speeds up the time to obtain business answers/insights on data.""The product's Macros probably are one of the most useful aspects.""Alteryx has made us more agile and increased the speed and effectiveness of decision making.""The GUI is simple and it integrates with Python.""I like the fact that you can easily blend data from different platforms.""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."

More Alteryx Pros »

"It's a great option if you are fairly new and don't want to write too much code.""It's good for citizen data scientists, but also, other people can use Python or .NET code.""I like that it's totally easy to use. They have an AutoML solution, and their machine learning model is highly accurate. They also have a feature that can explain the machine learning model. This makes it easy for me to understand that model.""Azure's AutoML feature is probably better than the competition.""The solution is very easy to use, so far as our data scientists are concerned.""The most valuable feature is data normalization.""The initial setup is very simple and straightforward.""Anyone who isn't a programmer his whole life can adopt it. All he needs is statistics and data analysis skills."

"It's a technical product and those that don't have proper training will have to deal with a steep learning curve.""The server is too expensive for what you get and it really a designer desktop on a server.""Deep learning models are not currently supported.""We are hoping that the NLP features will also support Chinese characters.""Sometimes workflows tend to queue up, and they tend to get canceled for some reason that we don't know sometimes.""The solution could work on the BI side of the tool to make it a bit better.""The solution just lacks in terms of data visualization. That is why we use Tableau and Qlik in our organization. They help to pick up the slack. If data visualization was added, Alteryx would be a very good tool, and much more complete.""What they're struggling with is it's not as mature as Tableau in the user management area. It was tougher to manage the server part of it right away, especially since the user base has grown."

More Alteryx Cons »

"The solution should be more customizable. There should be more algorithms.""When you use different Microsoft tools, there are different pricing metrics. It doesn't make sense. The pricing metrics are quire difficult to understand and should be either clarified or simplified. It would help us sell the solution to customers.""The data preparation capabilities need to be improved.""There should be data access security, a role level security. Right now, they don't offer this.""The AutoML feature is very basic and they should improve it by using a more robust algorithm.""I have found Databricks is a better solution because it has a lot of different cluster choices and better integration with MLflow, which is much easier to handle in a machine learning system.""The interface is a bit overloaded.""I think they should improve two things. They should make their user interface more user-friendly. Integration could also be better. Because Microsoft Machine Learning is a Microsoft product, it's fully integrated with Microsoft Azure but not fully supported for other platforms like IBM or AWS or something else."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"My organization pays for it, and I do not look into the financial aspect of the licensing, but I know it is pretty expensive.""The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive.""I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features.""It is $4,000 a year, so it is cheap versus other solutions. It also accomplishes three times the volume on the job in the same time (as the other solutions).​""There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else.""In order to have designers, and, if you want to collaborate, you have to buy a server. If the designer is $5,000, and if you want a server, you have to pay $80,000.""Its price should be lower. The key thing that we see is that talking about ROI is an important element at the time of purchase. Cost becomes a factor in every discussion. Justifying the ROI for these kinds of workflows is always a challenge, and the only way to counter the challenge is by addressing the pricing.""The pricing is $5000 per year per production license."

More Alteryx Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing cost is very cheap. It's less than $50 a month.""There is a license required for this solution.""I am paying for it following a pay-as-you-go. So, the more I use it, the more it costs.""From a developer's perspective, I find the price of this solution high."
