Alteryx Analytics

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.

Chartio

Our Data Science team currently uses Birst due to it's micro level control. If you're in a situation where you want inexperienced users taking a larger part in managing their dashboards, I would highly recommend this product. The usability of this product and their frequent updates to improve problem areas are just leaps and bounds above everything else we looked at. Birst did release a beta "wiziwig" type interface that was easier to use than the original interface, but it was still pretty far behind Chartio in terms of performance and appearance.

Pros

  • The ability to create a TDE(tableau data extract)
  • The ability to use geo spatial data for spatial analysis
  • The range of tools that can be used to clean/prepare your data

  • Constantly updating: many of the BI tools we looked at were slow to iterate on their product. This was a main selling point for us.
  • Ease of Use: We have many users that are new to BIs tools and database management in general. BI software as a whole has a pretty steep learning curve for most people, but Chartio does a good job of making things easier all around.
  • Database Support: It seems as though every department insists on storing their information using different databases. Chartio had support for everyone one we needed which was very helpful.

Cons

  • The map visualization is terrible. If you're planning on outputting presentation worthy maps, Alteryx is not the software for it!
  • The program has glitches - sometimes everything will be created perfectly (data joining as it should, appropriate fields selected, etc), but the program will fail to read in or "update" the workstream and cause errors
  • Though Alteryx is touted as "Big Data" friendly, we have seen those limits reached (billions of records) and been disappointed with run times.

  • Might be hard to use for people without SQL knowledge.
  • Not very convenient use with custom queries.
  • After creating a dashboard it's confusing to edit or correct it.

I will likely continue to use Alteryx because it allows quick, customizable data analysis. Often, I will be given a business question, which I might not know how to answer, but after getting into Alteryx, dragging and dropping some tools, I can formulate the answer. At the same time, this is definitely a niche software (not something that would ever be adopted by my entire company), which makes it a bit less appealing to some.

Through a graphical UI one can perform engineering and development, other vendors do not have such a code-less interface.

Chartio has been very helpful for our organization. In the beginning figuring out how to set up charts took a little while, but that was learning how to use Chartio.

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.

I use self learning materials. Pretty helpful. I find myself having to go back to the "drilldown" instructions though, and have a hard time finding hidden variables on a dashboard, so perhaps there is room for intuitive improvements (or maybe I'm just being lazy)

Implementation

Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

Alteryx is fast and easy to use. It's easier to import and export files than other DBMS products. It's not as fast and efficient as some of the high profile DBMS products when performing processes against very large files.

Chartio has worked well as our datawarehouse has rapidly expanded, and the usability/performance hasn't seemed to have suffered. What we haven't yet realized is additional savings from additional users. We have some dashboard needs for users who truly just view of a few charts, and the licensing structure hasn't yet been structured in a way that would support that type of approach...having 50 "core" licenses, and then potentially several hundred view only licenses for partners that would use the application infrequently.
