Easy, Pricy but Worth it
I'm a Technology Consultant, using ALteryx for ETL projects where analyse the data is a critical job and the size of the data, wouldn't allow me to use tools like excel . Alteryx it has been a great tool for all my jobs, let in me stand out with fast and quality solution.
The most i like is the Easy drag and drop function that the application has. The design and how visual it is to keep the Information flow, makes Alteryx a great app for data analysis, formatting and design. Built in tool like time Formaters, filters and Joins facilitate the work of doing data cleansing and data prepping for any ETL job. Another great area is how flexible it is input and output formats. It lets you join CSV files with XLS or even TXT.
The least I like is the price and the latency when loading the data. Because is a strong and powerful Tool, it is a bit pricey in one hand, is not a tool for one day job, is more for enterprise and daily jobs. When loading the data, depending where is located the document, it will take longer than usual.
Helps to increase efficiency and saves money for the company.
Very useful to automate manual workflows with repetitive tasks. Python Integration helps to ease out the process. Saves a lot of cost. Integration with other servers and applications is top notch.
Costly license limits the use. Requires training for getting used to it.
So many uses!
Alteryx has been great! It solved our business need plus so much more. The number of users in my company has been expanding since we first started using it.
You can do so much with Alteryx! We acquired the software for one specific project but I find myself using it for so many other things, from day to day data work to other large projects. It has great features like fuzzy matching, data normalization, and join capabilities. It is great for working with large data sets that can't be easily managed in excel or access and for allowing multiple data sources to interact with each other.
There is a bit of a learning curve. However, once you understand how it all works its easy. Also there are so many tools and more than one way to achieve the same thing. It can be hard to know how to approach new projects.
This is a great data analysis and prediction software.
Top tier point-and-click analytics tool
This tool's ease of use allows our non-analytical teammates to easily do basic data analysis by themselves, freeing up our analytics team for more technical questions
For those who are unfamiliar with self-serve/point-and-click analytics tools, the software can be a little overwhelming for the first few hours
Alteryx is a data visualization software and it provides a workflow solution to analyze data.
It is a robust and requires some technical skills to use. It has a user-friendly interface and a GUI interface which provides an attractive look. The trial version is available for data analyst to try the product before making any purchase decisions.
automated workflow is the future
Premier Data Analyzer
Great new tool for us
Best Tool for Mashing Data
I use Alteryx to combine multiple sources of data (from databases, excel workbooks, and others), clean, calculate, sort and provide an output that is easily digested. It allows me to provide analysis in a simple way, be creative in how I manipulate the data and even create automated running of the workflow. It saves me at least 8 hours a week.
Alteryx has a fantastic interface, using function blocks that you can drag and drop to create a workflow. This makes it simple to use and provides the ability to create complex workflows.
The license cost for the tool is very high, which means not everyone can use it. I find very little other cons with the program.
A good tool for automating complicated analytics pipelines
Alteryx is a good tool and well fits in our need of clinical data management and analytics pipeline optimization. There are rooms for improvement in terms of stability in desktop application.
Alteryx is a great tool when need of integrating multiple or complicated analytics pipelines in one place and manage them in a systematics manner. It provides a variety of data connections to common relational database product and web resources. It also provides plugins to add other product such as Tableau, etc.
The desktop application used to crash (not responding) in case of loading large sized data. It also gets very slow when moving or drag-dropping objects in the authoring environment.
Simplify Data Manipulation with the Press of a Button
My favorite data science tool
Easy to use, beautiful interface, documentation in a cinch
So much time saved
Easy to share documentation without worrying about syntax, coding and verfication
Trainable to a layman analyst
Drag and drop interface, the ability to manipulate my data at any point and expand my analytics through spatial and predictive.
The Server solution could be better developed to be ready to integrate with other enterprise wide features (for example, managing users, databases, schedules)
Saves me hours a week and allows me to think critically more often!
I use it daily at my job
Tool for automating excel workflows
It was nice, I have been automating excel user tools with it
It provides a no. of tools for data blending, data sorting, data extraction , generating reports and emailing them. Macros in it are easier to use. User Interface is easy to understand.
Nothing much I dislike, the only thing I disliked is that we have to use visual tool to view data every time, that slows the running time of the workflow.
Piece Together Information From You Data Yourself
Overall, I enjoy using Alteryx and love the futurist type look it has with it's icons.
I love the icons. I am very visual and enjoy knowing what I am doing by simply looking at the icons. This software can be as technical and as user friendly as you make it. The drag and drop of request allows users to play around with the files, data and request without being afraid of braking a formula like in Excel.
I don't like whenever I get a "null" error and it does not allow me to correct it. I manipulate the data, remove filters and the null remains visible. Perhaps having a pop up to show where the error lies in your work.
Review of Alteryx
I loved how quickly the user is able to learn this software. The tools are in the form of images and are extremely intuitive and helpful. Your final project is in a picture and very easy to follow
It's not possible to run just a small portion of a project without loading all the data back in again. It takes a lot of time to load large data files and can be time consuming to repeatedly load data.
Powerful tool with difficult learning curve
Alteryx is all you need to advance BI
I can't really discuss use cases due to proprietary information, but let me tell you- Alteryx elevates your entire organization and is a extremely versatile product to add to an analysts toolkit.
Alteryx is an incredibly easy to use tool that creates and automates data workflows with a click and drag toolbox. Passed R, Python and JSON code through the workflow so you can get technical tasks done without a developer.
Alteryx support could be a bit better in terms of follow up with very specific and technical questions. However, the community is a great resource to get answers to high level questions!
A simple yet powerful ETL tool
Easy to use UI, just drag and drop tools and start your data modelling.
Geo spatial data for spatial analysis
Blending data from different sources is quite easy.
Create and schedule data models and it will run automatically.
Integration with other tools are less compared to its competitor tools such as Informatica .etc.
Reporting option could be improved.
An extraordinarily ETL tool
In conclusion, Alteryx is a great solution for all the data wrangling and joins activities. It has helped my team to create data models faster and easier. I have not used the analysis and ML capabilities that it offers, but for my use case, I find it very helpful.
Alteryx offers great capabilities for data prep, blending and processing intuitively. It's possible to connect to a wide variety of data sources. Also, It offers visual and table data to help you visualize the results and profile the data you're using. Furthermore, flows are very easy to understand what's going on and are exportable to formats such as direct SQL queries.
There's a learning curve to understand all the components that Alteryx offers. However, there's great documentation out there to learn.
Alteryx simplifies and Enhances Data Preparation
I've loved working with Alteryx. After just 4 months of using the software, I have managed to automate over 20 daily or weekly processes that used to take all my time. I now have more time to create meaningful reports that can help management make the decisions that will keep our company moving forward.
Alteryx allows you to walk through your data preparation step by step to ensure that everything is following the exact process of orders that you want.
Occasionally, Alteryx will stop processing a workflow because of a minor error. Frequently, that minor error has a handful of different solutions, forcing you to try each solution one by one. After some experience you learn what things to look for, but when just starting out, it's a nuisance.
