Alteryx Platform

I wish I had found and used Alteryx Analytics years ago. Having multiple data sources with a variety of naming conventions for our businesses we spent WEEKS cleaning/reorganizing/renaming fields in our data to be able to consolidate. We did this on one set of reports for one use. Each time we wanted an update this process would need to be repeated. This took tons of useless admin time. Had we had Alteryx we could have created 1 identifier, noted all the different naming conventions or issues, selected the ones we wanted and created the workflow to use it over and over and over again on any data we wanted. Build once - use multiple times. It would have been (and now is) a HUGE time saver. Plus any new anomalies are identified by the program as errors so you can "autocorrect" them in the same workflow. Alteryx is a miracle in my opinion.

This is just a fantastic platform for dipping your toes into new technologies or running parallel testing of tings like ETL’s and BI Tools. Storage is so cheap and you can switch things on and off at will to save costs. Even if you are a 1-server company just managing email and file storage, going virtual is simply the best option. We still have a few on-prem servers and old Oracle items that we are swiftly moving to eliminate because the cloud is just that much easier and cost effective.

Pros

Alteryx Platform

  • Alteryx does a great job of allowing more beginner Analysts to automate many of their routine process but also allowing advanced Analysts to ability to leverage deep statistical modelling for predictive analytics.
  • Given the visual workflow nature of Alteyrx, the learning curve is not steep.
  • The Alteryx Gallery allows non-technical consumers to execute complex workflows by leveraging an intuitive web interface.
  • Alteryx allows data scientists to bring their own programming language to Altyerx, such as R or Python.

Microsoft Azure

  • Perhaps the biggest advantage of Microsoft Azure is its ease of integration with other Microsoft products. If you're used to using Excel, Access, SQL Server, and other Microsoft products, Azure will fit in nicely.
  • Azure does a good job at pointing the user into user-friendly methods for data capture and analysis. In fact, I think Azure does the best job at this compared to competing tools.
  • Microsoft Azure has recently made strides in implementing advanced analytics, such as machine learning. Their advances are great and integrate nicely with the tool.

Cons

Alteryx Platform

  • Sometimes the desktop version of authoring tool crashes! It's been unstable in the previous versions but gets better. Even if it doesn't crash, it used to be slow or not responding.
  • When running several version of database drivers in local machine or server, it is tricky to set up database connections. Often you have to figure out it by googling the problem and solution. There are not many knowledge bases from Alteryx.
  • Alteryx project file creates .bak file automatically. It is useful to prevent for the purpose of back up, sometimes it's not necessary. But it is not changeable for some reason. By default, it always creates backups.

  • Sometimes its a bit overwhelming as to the volume of functions
  • The layout could be more intuitive
  • While there are a lot of support docs it could be laid out a bit better to help you get where you need to go

We've developed a working partnership with Alteryx. As an enablement suite, we're continuing to innovate and deliver great products with use of Alteryx in our solutions. Alteryx use expands to our global product development teams and is in use in multiple parts of our organization. Alteryx also delivers Experian demographic content to other clients in their product offering. We're highly likely to renew, but that decision is way above my pay grade.

Moving to Azure was and still is an organizational strategy and not simply changing vendors. Our product roadmap revolved around Azure as we are in the business of humanitarian relief and Azure and Microsoft play an important part in quickly and efficiently serving all of the world. Migration and investment in Azure should be considered as an overall strategy of an organization and communicated companywide.

Fairly easy to manage with a lot of small exceptions. Interface blades can seem to branch out many levels deep making changes and available settings difficult to find. There are seemingly endless and obscure gotchas and undocumented limitations and pitfalls that can only be realized after the fact.

I use many programs and compared to others, Alteryx virtually never goes down, freezes up or gives an application error. Over a 4 year time period that I have used this program, any of these may have happened 3 times. It is an incredibly stable program that I feel completely confident in.

Microsoft products are well-known for 24x7 global coverage of customer support. They also sometimes come with a multiple support plan, which caters to different business requirements and needs. However, more support will also mean more cost to bare. Other than that, limited options in technical training sometimes make it quite challenging in finding the right talents for managing Microsoft Azure clouds and more dependency in Microsoft technical support.

There is really not much to it (the installation, that is). Once you get it installed, along with any of the add-ons (demographics, R, etc.), you are up and running almost immediately. There is really no additional setup. You can immediately begin blending data, running demographics, performing spatial queries, running predictive analysis, etc. And for many of these functions, the learning curve is quite easy.

As I have mentioned before the issue with my Oracle Mismatch Version issues that have put a delay on moving one of my platforms will justify my 7 rating.

Alternatives Considered

Alteryx Platform

Talend is primarily for data integration and has quite advanced capabilities. But the user has to be more technical. Alteryx makes the process simple and any user can make use of its features.Tableau was a good choice for data visualization. We needed beautiful charts and ways to represent data. Alteryx falls short in this aspect.

Google Cloud has a selection of products that are specific to machine-learning, but they are better for more specific use-cases like Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision, and other APIs. For our company, we were looking for APIs and cloud products that had a bit more flexibility in their interface, which is something that Azure offered for more of their products.

Return on Investment

Alteryx Platform

  • Alteryx does an excellent job of integrating consumer and spatial data to calculate and visualize things like locations within a certain drive-time radius.
  • For visualization purposes I had to move the data to excel for some decent graphs.
  • It can become very expensive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Azure

  • This solution has allowed reduction of hardware costs. Virtualization is by far much less expensive than onsite platforms.
  • Buying and configuring systems is costly in terms of initial investment and specialized staff. Azure minimizes those costs.
  • Azure has created a positive impact on our business objectives in the sense that it has allowed system integrations to become available in a quicker time frame than typically expected.
