Likelihood to Recommend

Alteryx

I would recommend for every data preparation workflow / process where business users are involved. Alteryx is just easier and does not need any technical knowledge. The simple drag and drop surface is easy to learn, read and maintain. On the other hand I would now recommend it for big data (1 TB +) or data science. While it does provide some tools for data science and it's a nice starting, it is definitely not good for productionizing data science (yet).

We have to calculate most all Lab / Pilot / Proposals sizing and results. The automated calculations in [Excel4apps] is awesome, as once you are familiar with them, it is easy to quickly implement them when needed.
Randi Yeaman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

Alteryx

  • Pulling data from multiple disparate data sources.
  • Allows users to see the data at every step of the workflow to be able to cleanse, analyze, and optimize the data.
  • Provides an analytics platform that is easy for users of all levels to thrive in whether they are just starting out in their analytics journey or they have a master's degree in Data Science.

Excel4apps

  • Easy to install and maintain. After the initial installation, there is little involvement by the technical administrators.
  • Cloning production to a test environment does not require any additional setups unlike Oracle EBS which does.
  • Loading data and reporting on this data is handled via EXCEL spreadsheets which is the "language" of our financial users.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Alteryx

  • A larger library of data sources being leveraged/licensed through Alteryx directly similar to the Experian and Dun & Bradstreet data that is available now would be ideal for additional data enrichment.
  • The ability to take R and Python-based data insights/model outputs/forecasts/etc. and pull directly into downstream tools and reporting is a bit lacking and could use improvement.
Cory Hubbard | TrustRadius Reviewer

Excel4apps

  • It is possible but difficult to retrieve data or set criteria from different module into a single report or retrieve. If it is more user friendly instead of having to create a complex formula to retrieve the data, this function will be utilized more often.
  • It will be nice to have visual (graphs, etc.) report template available
  • It is helpful if we can retrieve data for a range of date, instead of just YTD, PTD etc. and multi-year data all at once for comparison too.

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.

There's really not a problem involving data I've come across that I couldn't figure out how to use Alteryx to solve. Their community and help features are very useful, even though the drag and drop functionality combined with a curiosity related to the thrill of solving will get you there 95% of the time.

I am not a power user of Excel. So I find Exel4apps a friendlier version of the things that I could do on Excel and making it easier with a magic wand.

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.

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

Alteryx is feature-rich and allows our team to blend multiple data sources and types together with ease. We are able to really speed through workflow development while strengthening the quality of the output. I would say that Alteryx is able to outdo the other products in the areas of speed of development, quality of output, and ease of scale. The continued releases of additional add-on products to Alteryx Designer allows us to continue into new areas (essentially no ceiling to our growth).
Josh Kyburz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Excel4apps

Excel4apps is more user friendly and can retrieve data much easier and in a nicer format than Jaspersoft.Qlik Sense is useful and have more visual reporting and dashboard. However, it is usually used for higher level of analyses and review.Yardi is used for specific purpose, which is different than Excel4apps. Excel4apps can pull all the financial data from Oracle, including billing and collections.

Return on Investment

Alteryx

  • On average, we see the time to deploy to be around 10% of what it would take a SQL team.
  • One major client reported a task deemed impossible by a team of around 20 IT employees using SQL over the course of 9 months was done by one consultant using Alteryx in just over 12 days.
  • The impact is huge. Every user can now do what every coder can do in a fraction of the time—no need to learn to code.

Excel4apps

  • Increase team transparency
  • Increased reporting
