Alteryx Analytics

Well suited: if an organization already has a lot of running ETLs or pipelines but need to systemize them, Alteryx is a good choice. It would be good to figure out how well Alteryx would be harmonized with the existing components, but in a general sense, it may be well harmonized. Less appropriate: Alteryx is good for "automation", but some data developers and analysts may prefer to remain and keep using SQL tools. One should be careful of not just adding "one more layer or tool" into the existing pipeline and make it more complicated to manage.

TM1 is first and foremost an analytical tool which lends itself very well to budgeting, forecasting, what-if analysis and model design flexibility.Often times, users not familiar with analytical concepts view the tool as little more than another data source to extract data into MS Excel or MS Access to "rotate the cube". What they fail to realize is that TM1 is already a cube environment with Excel interfaces available as well as report publishing on the web and other capabilities.

Pros

  • Alteryx provides an integrated workflow management environment for data blending, analytics, and reporting. It is also very extensible to be connected to a variety of data connections including major databases (Oracle, etc.), analytics tools (R), and visualization tools such as Tableau through its plugins. Our department used Oracle and Tableau already and it was well integrated with Alteryx.
  • The workflow authoring environment in Desktop is easy to use so that most of the users (if they are a bit skilled data developers or analysts) may not need the training to use its basic functions. Drag and drop interface and icons are intuitive to understand.
  • When running Alteryx workflows, it is easy to monitor and track what's the progress by seeing percentages. It is helpful to balance and manage bandwidths of database servers, especially when to populate large data sets.

  • TM1 is tremendously more flexible than the competitor products due to its ability to calculate real-time.
  • Hierarchy changes are instantly available to take advantage of the real-time calculation. No pre-consolidations needed!
  • Native write-back capability allows for simple, integrated budgeting, forecasting and what-if analysis.
  • IBM is constantly improving the product and integrating with new products like Cognos BI, SPSS and is now beginning to integrate it with Watson Analytics.
  • New cloud versions of TM1 are now providing some really great web-based tools to simplify and streamline the presentation development and strengthen the self-service reporting, analytics and what-if analysis capacity.

Cons

  • Speed is somewhat lacking.
  • It isn't optimally geared for ETL.
  • Intellisense would be a nice feature
  • There is no version control.
  • The tools could use some more features.
  • More pre-built macros would be nice

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.

There are good support people in Ottawa, but having access to the development team and a TAM make the support. Without that access I don't think IBM Support would be as highly rated.

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.

Range of sources is the definitely the reason it deserves a 9 out of 10. From someone lacking a technical background, I enjoy using Alteryx in some of my project management responsibilities, and being able to load all the deliverables I am tracking is a huge differentiator from an Excel spreadsheet.
