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."
"Alteryx is so advanced. It's just drag and drop."
"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 ease-of-use allows non-technical business users to directly create their own solutions without the use of additional development resources."
"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."
"Good data transformation."
"The connectors are a very good feature."
"The scheduling within the solution is excellent."
"The most valuable features are on the application side, where you can design applications into your analytics on the platform."
"In the most recent release, the schedule publication was officially updated and it's been added on MS Office 365. I like how we had an EPM for B to C perspective; it's a great enhancement. Also, I believe the B to B connectivity has been improved. Android support for mobile is really good also. Power BI has always had android support in place, so manual support for SAP Analytics Cloud is also a very good feature."
"There is a really nice insight feature that I enjoy using."
"It integrates with third-party applications such as Google Drive and Excel,"
"Planning is the most valuable feature of the product because it's integrated and that means we don't need to rely on an independent planning environment."
"The ability to collaborate and plan together is great."
"The most valuable features are the visualization and user-friendliness."
"It is a comprehensive BI solution that provides reporting, planning, and predictive analytics in one solution. You don't have to buy three different products. It is very flexible. It can be implemented very quickly. It has a lot of out-of-the-box scenarios that you can use for quick deployment."
"Sometimes workflows tend to queue up, and they tend to get canceled for some reason that we don't know sometimes."
"The principal problem is the pricing. They're expensive products."
"There is currently no cloud solution and this would be valuable for many clients."
"The workflow and pipeline need to improve."
"I honestly can't think of anything that needs to be improved."
"The solution can be quite complex in some aspects."
"It would be great to create the final users' visualization within Alteryx."
"Deep learning models are not currently supported."
"Improvements are coming quarterly whereas previously it was on a monthly basis."
"There is no direct connector from SAP to Redshift, so we are required to use a third-party product that was recommended by SAP."
"Some of the standard visualizations, such as a speedometer or a goal chart, are not there and should be added."
"Pricing is fine for the BI license, but when it comes to client license, that fee is a bit high."
"Figuring out how to navigate all of the products around Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud and BW for HANA is quite difficult."
"Statistical analysis should be a bit more profound than it is."
"They need more support for more languages, Python for example."
"I would also like to have more advanced features for predictive analytics."
"I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."
"The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive."
"My organization pays for it, and I do not look into the financial aspect of the licensing, but I know it is pretty expensive."
"Opt for the three year subscription. It is 20% less than the yearly one."
"The license is really expensive, we cannot afford to have two or three. It takes away all the budget of my area."
"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."
"There is a license required for this solution."
"Its licensing is on a monthly basis."
"It's quite expensive and costs a lot to maintain, especially with licensing."
"Compute and storage features should be sold separately."
"It's not that costly as such for the time being."
"Its pricing is okay as compared to its competitors."
"It is not the most expensive one. You have to do the cost-of-ownership analysis and take a lot of things into consideration to come up with the conclusion that it is cheaper or not, but its price is reasonable. It provides value for money."
