Alteryx Analytics

More often than not, Alteryx can handle any situation or scenario thrown at it. Some may take a little more "trickery" along the way, but for the most part it is fairly easy to get from point A (data) to point B (results/report). And the nice thing is is that there is more than one way to produce the same result - two people with two different mindsets can ultimately create the same thing, but do so in a way that is better suited for their skill level.

Factiva

A large part of our work depends on the ability to source quality media content from a breadth of dependable sources globally. This is Factiva's bread and butter: it has a very comprehensive list of 'quality' media sources such as nationals, dailies, business journals and magazines from around the world that are easily mined for the content they hold. If you're thinking about anything other than these 'traditional' media sources then Factiva probably isn't your thing. It doesn't do social media.

Pros

  • Alteryx handles data imports very well and give great feedback on the import process.
  • Alteryx is incredibly feature rich. I never found myself unable to manipulate data in the way I had hoped.
  • Alteryx provides great formats for export as well.

  • Factiva has some quality news sources within its database. You know it's a robust, reliable and trustworthy source of content.
  • The Boolean logic search engine can seem a little daunting at first, but it is a very powerful tool to help you get the most out of running searches. The syntax and query structure generally follows the same as most 'keyword search' engines, but it has some quirks that you need to be aware of - operators in lower case, or running multi word / phrase searches outside of quote marks.
  • The filtering capability is simplistic but highly sophisticated. Filter content by source, region, language, company, industry and subject matter to really help hone results. The amount of back data readily available in the tool is impressive too meaning that running historical searches over large a timeframe is quick and easy.
  • Results shown include a highlighted section to indicate where keywords have matched - a nice addition to help you quickly identify the relevant bits of content you need.
  • You have the option to further tailor searches, and the ability to save individual searches for quick recall is a nice feature.
  • The tool is fast. It can handle complex searches and mine data going back years very very quickly. Most impressive

Cons

  • Alteryx seeks feedback from the user community. We regularly provide Alteryx with detailed requirements for supporting our data processing needs and Alteryx consistently delivers required functionality in their software updates.
  • Alteryx is rapidly expanding support for advanced analytics and delivery of consumable analytic tools. Alteryx can call other applications if necessary, but can also run R natively. Alteryx has been working both on expanding their delivered modeling toolset as well as enhancing their software to improve the performance of R.
  • While parallel processing is performed, there are times that I'd like to see more of it. Alteryx makes it easy to browse data within modules, but the browse output (tabular) is not readily filterable/sortable. Improvements to the user interface would be welcomed.
  • Alteryx allows users to schedule individual jobs for execution, but doesn't provide advanced scheduling tools to establish workflows where jobs executions have outside dependencies.

  • While timestamps are available on some news events, it is not available on all. For my purposes, timestamps are crucial and if they're not available on Factiva, we often have to search out the internet to see if this information is available elsewhere.
  • Sometimes when narrowing news by the "Company" search function, Factiva can remove news that is still relevant to the company.
  • Often times we may work for an international company so it becomes crucial to not only review English articles, but also foreign articles as well. It would be nice to have the ability to automatically translate (even if it is a rough translation) these non-English articles for ease of use.

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

Although microstrategy is a good tool, Alteryx is a unique tool in terms of providing such capabilities.

I have used Lexis Nexus and Thomson One. I find Factiva to be the most user friendly of these services. I much prefer Factiva's layout on their website when I search for articles and I also prefer its search builder over Lexis Nexus and Thomson One

Collaboration and Sharing

Doesn't really allow for much collaboration in real time other than sharing flat files with coworkers. Have to utilize a 3rd party cloud hosting platform in order to try to collaborate on a workflow.

We tend to be single-serve users of this platform, meaning that one user will manage the tool and perhaps share with other users the saves searches and results. In my opinion I don't believe that Factiva is intended for and even geared up to affording high levels of sharing and multi-point data access. For us that's not a problem, but it may be for you. As powerful a tool as Factiva is in terms of media sourcing and searching, it is not so good at the stages that come next - data visualisation, interrogation and sharing.

Data Integration

Alteryx Analytics8.9
Based on 16 answers
That is the best feature according to me. I could use data from a wide range of sources and it was pretty easy to merge all of them which isn't really an easy thing to do. It makes our life a lot easier when the blending capabilities are so easy to manage. Don't have to worry about having only a specific type of data source.

The range of data sources, in other words media sources, is impressive in Factiva. It was one of the primary draws for us as a company to utilise the tool. As I mentioned previously, Factiva - a Dow Jones company - pulls in some of the most trusted, reliable and dependable media sources globally which in my opinion is a key strength. It's sheer breadth of content at a global level is impressive.
