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.

Informatica Cloud

Informatica Cloud is a great tool for use when data must be formatted consistently. Once configured, it is very robust and reliable. It is also well-suited for an organization without a robust IT staff to maintain a full server infrastructure. It offers a cost-effective approach to high-quality data integration for even the largest organizations. Organizations without staff experienced in data analytics may find it challenging to take advantage of the more complex results of this tool.

Pros

  • User-friendly interface - the tool structure and general workspace are very easy to pick up on. Short learning curve from "no experience" to "beginner user".
  • Standardization - modules/wizards allow a single tool to generate results for multiple clients, all through the use of a few actions/inputs.
  • Analytics - wide range of statistical analytics tools makes it easy for a user to look at data and provide simple summary statistics, while also having the ability to build advanced regression models.

  • Implementation of any integrations with Informatica Cloud Data can be done easily. A consultant with base knowledge about integrations can easily implement.
  • It has inbuilt aggregate functions which can be used during mapping source table fields with target table fields.
  • Source and Target database connections can be easily configured with minimum no of steps.
  • Source data can be easily filtered through by applying conditions.

Cons

  • Excel reporting - reports in PDF are fairly straightforward, but trying to output results in Excel can prove to be tricky/ugly.
  • Chart creation - current chart tool is very basic; needs to be a way to customize the look/feel of a chart more, as well as an easier way to incorporate "big" data that can be easily reported on/viewed.

  • Price is a factor, the charges for each and every connector to various systems can add up, and seem to be annual expenses to account for in budget each year. We switched to just using Cloud between 2 systems so we only have to pay for 2 connectors because the price is pretty high. For other sources we’ve begun building out in Mulesoft to keep the budget in check.
  • Access to customer service is not the greatest. When running into problems the first line of defense for cloud is that it is not a Cloud issue and they cannot help. They are correct, of course, but could at least offer some support services to help us track back through permissions and secure agent setup to help identify and fix our issues, not just brush us off.
  • Updates to the Cloud product seem to hit without too much communication or follow through. While some of this could be prevented by our internal Administrator, I do think the level of communications from Informatica to the Admin are very thin as well. New features should be broadcast when you log in, and changes should be communicated within the app, and that does not happen with Informatica Cloud.

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.

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

Talend is primarily for data integration and has quite advanced capabilities. But the user has to be more technical. Alteryx makes the process simple and any user can make use of its features.Tableau was a good choice for data visualization. We needed beautiful charts and ways to represent data. Alteryx falls short in this aspect.

Informatica is a proven name in this space, and while Cloud does not have all the exotic features that Powercenter has, it is fast and light, working well for a very agile team that cannot always wait for the dedicated Informatica developer to fully build out an integration. This is a tool that speeds development by letting the BI Team do their own I&A and requirements definition in a fast and agile format, then pass along to the trained developer to button up the integration after it has already proved it's value in use

Return on Investment

  • Alteryx has significantly improved employee efficiency. It's helped reduce turnaround time by ~30% already and we expect this to to do more as we leverage more of the tools.
  • Alteryx has also been used to automate repetitive processes to free up employees to focus on more of the analytical tasks.
  • The only negative to the business impact is how licenses are handed. They often expire without notice and can negatively affect clients.

  • Because Cloud is not as advanced as On-Prem, you may need to have both which can double your costs. If that is the case try to split them out so you don’t have to pay for the same connectors for both products. You would think buying a connector for one would let you have it for both products, but that is not always the case, with any software I suppose.
  • Speed to get data out and into a cloud container is worth every penny. If you have a capable BI team, they can run ahead of or even fully without any Informatica developers to build the ETL. Once you set up the secure agent and have the end container stable, any worthwhile analyst can extract and push their data to the cloud. Very helpful for lean teams using tools working both sides of the firewall.
  • The ability for the BI team to manage their own integrations has had tremendous savings on the personnel budget by reducing the need for Informatica developers. Now we can get by with just 1 or 2 developers monitoring and shoring up integrations and let the BI Analysts pick and choose their own data sets to manage.
