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.

Microsoft R

Well suited if parallel processing is desired, eg. giant datasets or complex calculations. Otherwise, R studio might be sufficient. In either case, some level of programming in R will be required.

Pros

  • Blend multiple sources of data
  • Append or update existing data
  • Allows for powerful insights for non-technical users

  • Parallel processing
  • Integration with R
  • Open-source

Cons

  • Ease of use in tool functionalities
  • More advanced analytics
  • UI / UX
No photo available
  • When I reviewed the product - release D, at that time, "decision forest algorithm" was not available.
  • The tool needs to be more integrated with other data infrastructure tools such as Teradata, Informatica etc. as well as may be with new Hadoop distribution platforms such as Cloudera or Hortonworks so the users don't have to install the tool from scratch
  • I would also like to see improved capability around GUI and integration with other ecosystem. As the Big Data ecosystem would evolve in next 2-3 years, I would like to see Rev-R becoming more compatible with start-ups as well.

The performance, analytical capabilities and simplicity of Alteryx platform affects the renewal decision.

In general, Revolution Analytics brings a lot of value to the organization. The renewal decision would be based on return on investment in terms of quantified actionable insights that are getting generated against the cost of the product. Additionally, market brand of the tool and reputation risk in terms of possible acquisition and its impact to overall organizational analytic strategy would be considered as well.

Usability

Through a graphical UI one can perform engineering and development, other vendors do not have such a code-less interface.

Reliability and Availability

Based on 1 answer
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

1. RapidMiner - another similar tool with rich set of functionalities, strong hep and support and similar black box algorithms with ease of drag - drop linking of components to achieve the purpose. Text mining is a great functionality here which is missing in Alteryx.

The two are different products for different purposes. But for someone who has little or no experience in R programming, Power BI would be better for starting with. Having said that, Microsoft R is built on R, thus allowing for customization of complex calculations not typically available otherwise.

Return on Investment

  • Faster data processes (appending various data)
  • Non-gis people have been able to to geocode/build trade areas (this is positive and negative)
  • Quickly generate a standardized way of research processes

  • Increased productivity (Ability for parallel processing freed up time to do other tasks)
  • Easy installation meant no need for dedicated IT support
