Likelihood to Recommend

Alteryx Analytics

Alteryx is well suite for data integration /automation use cases as well as deeper predictive modeling. Alteryx is not a visualization tool. There are many connections and integrations to more robust visualization platforms.

Microsoft Azure

Azure can be beneficial to any organization if planned appropriately. One of its great benefits is that you pay only for what resources you use. Easy to deploy and manage. Perhaps not suitable for your organization if you already have in-house systems that accommodate your needs.

Pros

Alteryx Analytics

  • Alteryx does a great job of allowing more beginner Analysts to automate many of their routine process but also allowing advanced Analysts to ability to leverage deep statistical modelling for predictive analytics.
  • Given the visual workflow nature of Alteyrx, the learning curve is not steep.
  • The Alteryx Gallery allows non-technical consumers to execute complex workflows by leveraging an intuitive web interface.
  • Alteryx allows data scientists to bring their own programming language to Altyerx, such as R or Python.

Cons

Alteryx Analytics

  • Cost is a factor - while support and training are "free" the software price is high.
  • It helps to have some good Excel experience to make instant adoption even easier.
  • The trainers tend to go a bit fast so slow learners may need multiple sessions.

Microsoft Azure

  • It is not that user-friendly.
  • It requires a lot of data and time to teach algorithms
  • The credits can get quite costly for small projects.

Likelihood to Renew

Alteryx has become integral to my job and to the expectation of upper management. They have now become accustomed to the lightening quick turnaround that Alteryx can provide. Not renewing Alteryx would take our department, and me, back to what would seem like the dark ages. Additionally, Alteryx (the company) is very aggressive in improving and upgrading Alteryx (the program) on a continual basis. It is very clear that they are in constant search for new features, capabilities and improvements. They do not rest on their laurels.

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.

I give overall support for Microsoft Azure a reasonable rating only because the system is intuitive in many ways. I would give it less if it weren't for that. The general support for the system, however, from the company or contractors that work with the system is, in my opinion, poor. It is nice that Microsoft is doing a great deal of international business but that doesn't help me if I am getting support for a technical issue from someone to whom I need to assist with proper communication in the English language.

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.

As I have mentioned before the issue with my Oracle Mismatch Version issues that have put a delay on moving one of my platforms will justify my 7 rating.

Alternatives Considered

Alteryx Analytics

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.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure outpowers Oracle Cloud. It is way easier to use than Google Cloud which, though proficient, continues to be overly complicated. As for IBM Cloud - Microsoft Azure, I find, is more reliable, efficient and dependable. In general Microsoft Azure is more powerful, provides more levels of access, is easier to use and is more dependable than Oracle, Google and IBM cloud products.

Return on Investment

Alteryx Analytics

  • Definitely increased employee efficiency.
  • The company was able to offer more products to better serve the customers. Site selection with a click, more detailed segmentation, etc.
  • The program itself made the job more enjoyable. The ease of the software and also "Lego"-like interface made going to work fun.

Microsoft Azure

  • We have seen reduced costs associated with purchasing, configuring and maintaining individual servers.
  • We have seen a drop in cost associated with sharing data while at the same time seen a general increase of many magnitudes with sharing that same data and more.
  • A negative impact has been the necessity of finally confronting the technical capabilities of the work force. It is a relief to finally reach this point but resistance from entrenched ideas, fears and lack of knowledge continues to be considerable.
