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.

DataRobot

DataRobot is equipped to serve both cloud computing and on-premise work. Its comprehensive cloud module, channeled through Amazon sustains highly flexible machine learning programs. Lower than average costs are provided via cloud networking because there is no need to install hardware and the additional pricing that comes along with that. DataRobot assists in eliminating hassle by offering various methods of deployment in regard to predictive modeling. The program may not be appropriate for smaller startups of 20 or fewer employees, mainly because the exportable prediction code, and native batch scoring may not translate as well to a smaller firm.

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.

  • DataRobot helps, with algorithms, to analyze and decipher numerous machine-learning techniques in order to provide models to assist in company-wide decision making.
  • Our DataRobot program puts on an "even playing field" the strength of auto-machine learning and allows us to make decisions in an extremely timely manner. The speed is consistent without being offset by errors or false-negatives.
  • It encompasses many desired techniques that help companies in general, to reconfigure in to artificial intelligence driven firms, with little to no inconvenience.

Cons

  • 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.

  • The importance of realizing that most software programming in the Predictive Analysis genre is not 100% ideal cannot be overstated. It's tough to locate a program that would fulfill every need of every business type and size. Though DataRobot is about as close as it gets, it may not be for every industry.
  • Though DataRobot helps to capture six sigma techniques, knowledge, and expertise of the best data scientists in the nation, it may end up causing rifts in intercompany personnel due to fear of job loss on a long term scale.
  • Though fairly priced for a firm of our size and capability, it may be out of market reach for smaller companies at this point. It's important for every firm to understand exactly what they need and can afford.

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.

DataRobot presents a machine-learning platform designed by data scientists from an array of backgrounds, to construct and develop precise predictive modeling in a fraction of the time previously taken. The tech invloved addresses the critical shortage of data scientists by changing the speed and economics of predictive analytics. DataRobot utilizes parallel processing to evaluate models in R, Python, Spark MLlib, H2O and other open source databases. It searches for possible permutations and algorithms, features, transformation, processes, steps and tuning to yield the best models for the dataset and predictive goal.

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.

Implementation

Alteryx Analytics10.0
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's UI is fantastic insomuch that training can really be self-driven, albeit with several Google searches a day and visits to the Alteryx community. The other solutions we looked at were much less intuitive and not nearly as flexible, automated, and didn't give you the capability to watch the data be changed through every step of the process like Alteryx can do through browses and data samples.

We started off using BigML. A positive about BigML would be that it doesn't require files on your local drive. You just need an internet connection and API allows the user to do anything he or she needs (including model deployment and prediction). We ended up with DataRobot mainly, initially because BigML doesn't provide offline support like other open-source programming does. In the long run DataRobot was much more cost effective as well.

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.

  • DataRobot can run multiple experiments at the same time. This helps to minimize time spent on any given experiment.
  • DataRobot helps to get rid of bottlenecks by yielding various ways to enact completed models of prediction.
  • I consider the Return on Investment high. APIs for real-time scoring have saved us many dollars and time.
