Alteryx Analytics

Alteryx can do so much more than I use it for, so I believe the only case where Alteryx wouldn't be needed is when a department/team had a full development team to prep data pre-analysis or already has a central data store fully stood up and standardized. Alteryx works extremely well with a multitude of BI and database solutions and would be a great fit for any team trying to speed up the typical daily grind of data prep and ETL so their analytics and data team can be more agile, accurate, and automated.

Paxata

Paxata can be highly useful to someone who doesn't like/have any experience with writing codes to treat data before using it as input into BI dashboards. Paxata can accelerate data cleaning in environments where a large amount of unclean data is generated and business decisions on the go are required. It performs really well while dealing with natural language.

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.

  • Visualize distributions in large data sets effectively which enable the user to quickly spot outliers and treat them appropriately
  • Provides recommendation to merge datasets based on matching column values
  • The cluster and edit feature in my opinion is its most powerful feature and reduces cardinality in column with text

Cons

  • Improved Maps/ GeoCoding system for geographical analysis should be there.
  • Running data extracts can be made more efficient. Tableau does it much better.
  • Cross-Database joins should be allowed and the data extraction should be much simpler.

  • Doesn't provide recommendation on how to impute values
  • There is a lag quite often
  • We can say whether a column has errors or quality issues in the first look

I would love to renew, but Alteryx is not available for Mac computers.

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 had used RapidMiner before and Alteryx is way ahead of it in every aspect. I also have used IBM Watson to some extent and preferred Alteryx because of its blending capabilities, ease of use for everyone on the team and the ability to easily use R with it (as R was the second most popular language we used). I have heard IBM SPSS has some features better than Alteryx but haven't had a chance to use it as yet. At this point though we do not think we are moving anywhere away from Alteryx.

Paxata is a much better tool when it comes to handling natural language but Talend provides recommendations on how to impute missing values and outliers. Paxata provides recommendations on dataset tie-ups and joins but Talend doesn't provide any such recommendations. In paxata you can visualize distribution of data in a column and filter them by dragging and selecting the section you'd like to retain

Return on Investment

  • It gets the job done fast.
  • It lends itself well for people with a less-technical aptitude to understand the data process.
  • It empower the user to come up with any possible solution to a problem.

  • It saves time to clean data
  • It reduces the requirement of too many data engineer/stewards and hence adds positive impact on the return of the business
