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.

The recommendation for a company would be that with this free/low-cost tool for desktop it can help a lot in making decisions and thereby get a result that you can visualize if your company is on the right path. The user will also get some more creativity about the creation of the panels.

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.

Microsoft Power BI

  • Easily connect to multiple databases or cloud solutions.
  • Possibility to modify datasets or change formatting in Power BI vs having to modify data at the source.
  • Since Power BI can cache locally some of the data, it's possible to continue working offline on datasets.

Cons

Alteryx Analytics

  • Improve work flow in modules, sometimes buggy when dealing with multiple files
  • On-screen wizard could help demonstrate common best practices
  • Add more tools that could benefit the user without them having to create macros

Microsoft Power BI

  • A bit heavy to run and not that intuitive compared to other tools.
  • Dashboarding is really a pain compared to other tools and the visualization provided with the tool are not what you should expect.
  • Very very frequent updates that require you to reinstall the software almost on a monthly basis. Will need admin rights from your organization.

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.

PBI is very easy to use because of its similarity with power pivot and excel. DAX is the basic foundation language to be mastered to quickly build reports. Custom measures have been introduce to write instant DAX functions (But doesnt work all the time and need a understanding of DAX to debug). Easy to chart multiple charts and also third party charts

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 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.

For dashboarding, Klipfolio is vastly superior. I use Power BI to get quickly to the data I need to display in a dashboard. Once I tested everything in Power BI, I will pull the datasets in Klipfolio to create a dashboard that will refresh automatically every hour, for example.

Return on Investment

Alteryx Analytics

  • Strong ROI
  • Increased efficiency of the analytics teams

Microsoft Power BI

  • It's a good start for setting up customized dashboards.
  • Available for all users based on Office 365 platform we have in place.
  • Doesn't really allow depth of report - specifically customization of visual displays.
