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.

Informatica Cloud

Informatica Cloud is a great tool for users of TargetX and Salesforce. It may work with other database systems as well.

Pros

  • Data ingestion: Alteryx is capable of connecting with a multitude of data sources from SQL databases to cloud-hosted solutions like Salesforce, Tableau, or Google Analytics. Also supports OleDB & ODBC connections.
  • Dynamic data munging: Alteryx has a great variety of processing tools to clean and prep data including: dedupe, formulas, joins, union, sort... Performing these functions really quickly on even moderately equipped laptops or desktops. It's dynamic in that it can easily handle changes in data by allowing extra columns to flow through.
  • Macros: have a process that you are consistently running in separate workflows? Build a macro, be it a batch or iterative, Alteryx can do it. I've built 40-50 macros and use at least 4+ in every workflow I design so data is handled the same way in every workflow for consistency and cutting down on copy/pastes.

  • Informatica Cloud is a great tool for automating data imports. Raw data files can be scheduled to run at designated times, and using pre-built mappings ensures that the data goes into the system accurately each time.
  • It is also a great tool for converting raw data into specific formatting. For example, configuring the mapping so that the first letter of a first, middle or last name is always capitalized.
  • Additionally, Informatica Cloud has a built-in field-matching tool so that records that already exist are updated rather than having duplicates created.

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

  • Learning the syntax for formatting the data can be difficult, and some of the functions are not as intuitive as they could be.
  • Power Centers are difficult to create on your own. A power center is a tool that converts one file type to another prior to importing the data: for example, changing a .txt. file to a .csv file.
  • Making sense of certain error reports can also be challenging. When a file errors and does not import, the system will provide a report so that errors can be fixed. These reports do not always provide straightforward reasons why the file did not import.

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.
Rishi Bavishi, CSSGB, CAPM profile photo
Informatica Cloud (IC) and Dataloader are similar products, and we actually use both. IC is a much better tool for automating and standardizing data imports, but Dataloader is much better suited for ad-hoc data imports

Collaboration and Sharing

There are some formats that need to be worked on in Alteryx for example using "%" in reporting as you have to go through few extra steps to build such special characters and it makes it a little annoying. It also needs a small fix on when you share data in emails to make it better visualized.

Data Integration

Alteryx Analytics8.8
Based on 17 answers
Unless there's totally different kinds of datasets, it works with any flat file sheets and is very easy to play with data. If you have files in shared folders the run time depends on the size and speed of accessibility as well, but for most part it works really smooth.

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.

  • One positive ROI is that Informatica Cloud ensures that data is being imported in the same format each and every time so a user can be confident of data integrity.
  • Secondly, being able to match of certain fields prevents record duplication.
