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.

Prophix is a fantastic system and I really enjoy using it. However, some accounting systems don't work too well with Prophix logic and it can be extremely difficult at times to get the two systems to work together. I would just make sure Prophix integrated well with my accounting system before using. :)

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.

Prophix

  • The flexibility of being able to create cubes to model your organization is a strength.
  • The ability to create allocations in Prophix is a strength.
  • The ability to create templates for standard reports makes producing report fast and easy.
  • Fast implementation time is a plus for Prophix

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.

Prophix

  • I think that Prophix could structure their support and offerings based upon the needs/skill level of their customers. Customers that don't have the expertise on staff could be given additional help to develop their use of the software. Those with a higher skill level could be shown the depth of the product to gain additional ideas on different ways or items to analyze. Thus, increasing their own knowledge base as a springboard for additional customers.

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.

The system works well for us, and meets all of our needs. All of our future plans can and will be achieved within Prophix, so there is no need to pursue another product. Prophix has continuously proven to improve their product over the years, which provides an even higher level of confidence in this tool, and future developments

Prophix is necessarily complex because it is a very flexible tool that can be used to solve just about any data analysis or reporting need. There is always a disconnect between the initial presentation of a software product and actual implementation and use. Be sure to allocate the necessary investment in time and money for consulting help and user training.

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.

During high peak times revenue and budget forecastings, (50 users in the system) Prophix does struggle during the time. I am usually asking IT once a quarter during the peak times to restart the server because its on overload. I have tried to train my users to use the system at different times, but when everyone waits to the last minute to perform their task Prophix can't keep up.

Support has been great. We pay for the Continuous Success Package, and it's great to have that level of support, and not worry about going over budget to receive support. Support has always been able to fix my issue or provide the needed guidance. The one thing I wish they would improve, or I would learn how to do, is to be able to get faster response times on support. Generally, I have to schedule something 3-5 days out. That's not always ideal.

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.

Prophix Consulting should bring, in house, chargeable expertise in Oracle EBS table access for Drill Across and provide reasonable limits on dimension member combinations so there are no unreasonable expectations about the application of multi dimensional cubes to detail, such as revenue by product and customer.

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.

Prophix

Compared to Host Analytics and Adaptive, Prophix provides more value for the dollar, especially when we deploy multiple models. Solution set is also comparably built out, so we are not missing any critical functionality. Self-maintenance by finance is also comparable to Host and Adaptive, and much easier compared to SAP and Oracle solutions. (Much more expense both for consulting and license when compared to those last two.)I still think Prophix has a compelling value story. Because the underlying technology is Microsoft, I am not worried that the Prophix functionality/technology will ever lag too far behind anything other larger companies offer, and will certainly stay with any proprietary solutions.

We are a medium sized company, but the structure of Prophix would seemingly adapt to whatever sized organization you have. It also can be applied in any area of an enterprise that needs performance management, whether it involves financial data or not. The potential for application within the enterprise is really only limited by you imagination.

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.

Prophix

  • Cost. In comparing this to Adaptive, Oracle, Host Analytics - this product really stands out from a cost standpoint in being much cheaper and the value (based on features and knowledge transfer from the consultant) pays out over time.
  • Employee productivity. The software definitely solved load time issues and made our reporting process much smoother. We have more time for analytics and spending a lot less time on data validation.
