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.

  • If you already have a Cloudera partnership and a cluster, having this is a no brainer.
  • It integrates well with your existing ecosystem and it immediately starts working on projects, accessing full datasets and share analysis and results.
  • With the inclusion of Kubernetes, CPU and memory across worker nodes can be managed effectively.

Pros

  • Excellent support for the tools through training/white papers and online support.
  • Ease of use - high common sense factor makes the program easy to learn and apply.
  • Compatibility with everything but specifically with commonly used key programs like Tableau.

  • One single IDE (browser based application) that makes Scala, R, Python integrated under one tool
  • For larger organizations/teams, it lets you be self reliant
  • As it sits on your cluster, it has very easy access of all the data on the HDFS
  • Linking with Github is a very good way to keep the code versions intact

Cons

  • Cost is a factor - while support and training are "free" the software price is high.
  • It helps to have some good Excel experience to make instant adoption even easier.
  • The trainers tend to go a bit fast so slow learners may need multiple sessions.
Susan Knolla profile photo
  • Not as great as RStudio; lacks some features when compared with it
  • It is quite simple still (because its very early in its initiative), and companies may want to wait until they see a more developed product

I personally have moved to a different position that does not require data analysis tools. I really enjoyed working with Alteryx and think it is a great tool, but have moved to a different organization and role.

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

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.

Overall pretty good. Depending on the quality of the question posed the CS team will get back as they are available

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

I haven't used any other programs nor have I seen any that do this. I think it stands alone as a tool which allows such ease of use in data organizing and cleansing. While formulas or pivot tables in excel can help they are not easily repeatable across a variety of (dirty) data sources whereas Alteryx is.

Both the tools have similar features and have made it pretty easy to install/deploy/use. Depending on your existing platform (Cloudera vs. Azure) you need to pick the Workbench. Another observation is that Cloudera has better support where you can get feedback on your questions pretty fast (unlike MS). As its a new product, I expect MS to be more efficient in handling customers questions.

Return on Investment

  • It gets the job done fast.
  • It lends itself well for people with a less-technical aptitude to understand the data process.
  • It empower the user to come up with any possible solution to a problem.

  • As the tool itself can access all the HDFS, Spark data easily, the wait time between teams has reduced
  • Installation was a breeze, and ramp up time was fairly easy
