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.

Informatica Cloud MDM

For organizations where their data mastering is fairly standard and requires very little customization, Informatica Cloud MDM is an excellent solution. I believe in this scenario, the organization should be able to 'hit the ground running'. However, if your organization requires a highly customizable solution for your data mastering, prepare yourself for a long dev cycle. I'm not saying that Informatica Cloud MDM would not work for these organizations because it is working for us. What I am saying is be cautiously optimistic about the time it will take for you to implement the solution.

Pros

  • Alteryx handles metadata really well. The tools are intuitive in their use.
  • For analytics Alteryx it is a great platform.
  • There are barely any software bugs in the product.
  • The error messages are actually helpful to debug modules.
  • If a load-balancing application is internally developed on top of Alteryx processing nationwide universes can be really fast.

  • Highly customizable functionality via their web interface or via Salesforce Apex code.
  • Their 'out of the box' account manipulation jobs required very little modification from our team. What modification that was required, was very simple and straight forward thanks to their details and intuitive configuration screens.

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

  • Their concept of Task Flows (a scheduled or on-demand job) leaves a bit to be desired. While one is able to perform very basic operations and lookups within this interface, it is extremely limited. For our particular implementation, we had several account fields that required both an expression as well as a lookup to be done, but in the Task Flows you are only able to do one or the other, not both. Informatica provides another option, which is a Mapping, which is far more customizable, but due to its complexity, caused a significant increase in development time.

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.

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

I have used Tableau Desktop. We selected Alteryx because of the better pricing options they had for our firm. Although Tableau has amazing features like data blending, story designing dashboards, parameters switches, geo coding, etc. Alteryx provides decent solutions in most of these areas as well.Tableau Servers and licenses are very expensive on a per-user basis, and here Alteryx wins hands down.

Return on Investment

  • Definitely, an increase in employee efficiency. With the right tools and hardware, Alteryx can reduce the processing time significantly.
  • Automation and/or automatic report scheduling frees up a lot of time that can be used elsewhere.
  • Licensing updates are somewhat not handled easily and quite often create issues with modules to run slowly and/or not being active.

  • I cannot speak to this for 2 reasons. 1. I am not privy to the financials associated with this implementation or the previous one. 2. We have not hit our 'go-live' for this implementation yet to compare it's performance to our previous solution.
