"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."
"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."
"The solution has a very strong community that is involved in the product. It helps make the usage easier and helps us find answers to our questions."
"The product is very stable and super fast, five-star. It's significantly more stable than it's nearest competitor."
"The scheduling within the solution is excellent."
"The product's Macros probably are one of the most useful aspects."
"Automation is the most valuable aspect for us. The ability to wrap business logic around the data is very helpful."
"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."
"The scalability overall has been quite good."
"My favorite feature is the power query editor, where it can do the data transformations."
"Reports, dashboards, and visualizations are most valuable."
"The use of graphics to show and view the data indicators is the most valuable feature. It is also very stable."
"The Microsoft Power BI app is very good. It's also very flexible."
"It is quite easy to use and it helps me to achieve the projects that I've been assigned."
"Technical support has been great."
"Its seamless integration with Microsoft products, such as Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Excel, is the most valuable."
"They can provide some pre-built tools for predictive analytics instead of us having to build all the tools. It should also be improved from the visualization aspect. It should have better visualization capabilities. There are tools out there that have better visualization capabilities, which Alteryx is lacking currently."
"The workflow and pipeline need to improve."
"We are hoping that the NLP features will also support Chinese characters."
"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."
"The solution could improve in the visualization."
"It would be great to create the final users' visualization within Alteryx."
"There are no ready models to use in analytics."
"A colleague of mind mentioned that the solution should have more options for the visualization of data."
"I feel the modeling page should be simplified."
"The UI is the main improvement that could be made. Specifically, there is something called DAX, in Power BI, which is complicated compared to calculated fields used in Tableau."
"In an upcoming release, the solution could be simplified and have a more complete product package rather than a suite of products that we have to put together."
"Microsoft should offer additional features for visualization and have additional features for slicing and dicing that data."
"There are some limitations in Power BI; you have to work in the Power BI base. However, if you want something not out-of-the-box and you want something custom, you have to do a lot of work."
"It's not user-friendly; more tutorials, training, and better documentation would be helpful."
"The challenge of this product is in truncating the table data."
"Sluggish performance when handling large amounts of data."
