More often than not, Alteryx can handle any situation or scenario thrown at it. Some may take a little more "trickery" along the way, but for the most part it is fairly easy to get from point A (data) to point B (results/report). And the nice thing is is that there is more than one way to produce the same result - two people with two different mindsets can ultimately create the same thing, but do so in a way that is better suited for their skill level.

I would highly recommend the software just based on experience utilizing the tool, staff, and knowledge transfer. The admin is in control of the software with little involvement from IT. What sold us on using this product was there demonstration by Thomas Karthaus (Regional Account Manager) and Igor Krougovoi (Solutions Engineer) - they documented what are issues where - primarily load times of taking several hours to consolidate data and being in an outdated software no longer supported in Cognos Finance. Igor created a quick model with our data and ran through his steps of how he built it, what it could do, and how the Prophix solution solved our main problem in seconds rather than hours. The key thing is ask/show what your existing problems are and let Prophix show how they can handle/solve the issue.

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.

  • Organization dimension modeling is a simple and visual drag and drop.
  • All displayed data comes from one source (of the truth). The same measure will match from report to report with integrity.
  • Ad Hoc analysis on Dimension hierarchies and amounts for the member combinations facilitates data mining and analysis.
  • Detail Planning Modules posted directly to the Financial Cube gives seamless Drill Through to detail of Plan and Forecast.
  • Delta Analysis tools are an attractive way to enter data within the model and without Excel hell.
  • Smart Monitor makes available meaningful balanced score card dashboards; with performance parameters controlled by the business owner.

Cons

  • You cannot as a novice just play around and get started. The learning curve is very steep, rewarding, but steep. I can't help but wonder if the product would not benefit from a "light" version for less data-mining accustomed business managers.

  • Drill Across to transaction detail is dependent on the customer's technical ability and capacity to export from ERP to tables. Prophix Consulting should invest in an expertise and service offering to make Drill Across work by fetching transactions directly from the ERP tables themselves. We have a wide user group that views Drill Across Journal Line detail, but must move into inadequate ERP functionality in order to see further into transactions.
  • There should be what if Organization hierarchies for Planning and Forecasting (Alternate Hierarchies based on update of individual member properties is too hard to maintain) .
  • Work Flow Activities and underlying Tasks should be movable by drag and drop and the Task due dates should, optionally be set as business days before or after the start of the month. Without that the due dates are requiring review and refinement each month to allow for weekend and holidays.
  • Rolling 12 month Time Perspective member should come standard.
  • Prophix Consulting has advised that a combination of sales by product and customer is just too much to handle. This is an important dimension combination not to have in the model.

I may lack the intuitive skills needed to be proficient with Prophix or it is an application with so much capability that it takes extended time and usage to master.

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 feel that the Prophix team takes my issue seriously. They do not charge per support ticket, and will even solve complex issues without additional professional service calls. When an issue is beyond the capability of the service technician, they will bring in a solutions architect to help solve the issue. When comparing the agility and timeliness of Prophix's support vs. the support I receive by my ERP, there isn't even a comparison - Prophix wins hands down.

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.

Prophix stacks up well against the competition. We selected Prophix since they were able to provide a great presentation. Also, they managed the project well and they have strong consultants who helped implement the solution quickly. They also, continue to evolve by upgrading features based upon customer feedback. They have strong customer support and always try to help deliver a solution for any problems we report. I also like the fact they offer training for some features such as dashboard reporting. I received training from one of their consultants and I am now able to develop additional dashboard reports for my organization.

We are a medium sized company, but the structure of Prophix would seemingly adapt to whatever sized organization you have. It also can be applied in any area of an enterprise that needs performance management, whether it involves financial data or not. The potential for application within the enterprise is really only limited by you imagination.

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.

  • Greater daily visibility to key metrics (i.e. monthly revenue, returns, open sales orders, monthly budget variances)
  • Ability to utilize a 12 month rolling revenue forecast
  • Faster time to provide variances at month/quarter end
