Quotes From Members

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

"The most valuable feature for me is integration.""The product's Macros probably are one of the most useful aspects.""I like the fact that you can easily blend data from different platforms.""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 scheduling within the solution is excellent.""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.""Alteryx is so advanced. It's just drag and drop.""The connectors are a very good feature."

"The most valuable feature is its flexibility and the ability to integrate with SAS.""The most valuable features are forecasting and reporting."

More SAS Predictive Analytics Pros »

"Even when it already includes some AI models, this area could be improved.""The solution can be quite complex in some aspects.""There is currently no cloud solution and this would be valuable for many clients.""Alteryx is just as complicated as coding, in my opinion.""There are no ready models to use in analytics.""The solution could improve in the visualization.""There are a few imputation techniques which they really need to include.""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."

"Technical support could be improved because they take too long to answer our queries.""I think that this solution should be more compatible with other software, including open-source solutions."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The license is really expensive, we cannot afford to have two or three. It takes away all the budget of my area.""The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive.""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.""We have a yearly cost that we pay for the licensing. We do not pay any costs in addition to the licensing fees.""The pricing is $5000 per year per production license.""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.""There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else.""ROI is huge. There are some secondary benefits, like analysts getting their post 5 PM time back or the ability to shorten all closing processes to a half or less."

"If SAS were more flexible in terms of licensing then that would be good, because it costs more than other solutions."
