Alteryx

Alteryx is best suited where the task is complex to the point where you feel like multiple excel spreadsheets and/or differing data sources need to be blended together to solve a problem (complex data blending). Alteryx is also best suited where you find that you are repeating the same task (automation). Alteryx may be less suited for relatively simple analysis that can be solved in a spreadsheet, although I've been using Alteryx to solve these scenarios as of late.

If the person/ department does not have any knowledge in open source tools such as R, and Python. [Salesforce Einstein Analytics (formerly Wave Analytics)] could be a good option with no coding background required. However, if they have such human resource or can acquire these people, I would recommend open source tech and suggest not to use this tool.

Pros

Alteryx

  • Pulling data from multiple disparate data sources.
  • Allows users to see the data at every step of the workflow to be able to cleanse, analyze, and optimize the data.
  • Provides an analytics platform that is easy for users of all levels to thrive in whether they are just starting out in their analytics journey or they have a master's degree in Data Science.

Tableau CRM (formerly Einstein Analytics)

  • Interactive Dashboards, it [consists] of wide variety of charts
  • Data from different sources can be easily integrated with it
  • Security, it provides easy way to secure and share the information with the users
  • Support actions like opening hyperlink etc
  • Almost everything can be done from configuration
  • Data can easily be managed from dataflow.
Shefali Sethia | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Alteryx

  • A larger library of data sources being leveraged/licensed through Alteryx directly similar to the Experian and Dun & Bradstreet data that is available now would be ideal for additional data enrichment.
  • The ability to take R and Python-based data insights/model outputs/forecasts/etc. and pull directly into downstream tools and reporting is a bit lacking and could use improvement.
Cory Hubbard | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau CRM (formerly Einstein Analytics)

  • Implementation takes time and resources. It is a heavy lift to implement and at first, it can take a little bit of time to understand what you are looking at. But once it's implemented it's easy to get started.
  • Without any BI expertise or resources available to your organization, the implementation of this is difficult. If you aren't used to BI tools and don't have an expert in house, the terminology can be difficult to understand at first.
  • Their support is not on hand to help you if you encounter any issues, at least not on all the plans or the basic plans. Real-time support service is an add-on, so you'll need to be patient if you require help or pay extra money.
  • More functionality for the tool is needed to compete with other heavyweights in the arena like Tableau, Qlik, and Microstrategy. Still lacks the robustness, functionality, and flexibility other competing products possess.

We've developed a working partnership with Alteryx. As an enablement suite, we're continuing to innovate and deliver great products with use of Alteryx in our solutions. Alteryx use expands to our global product development teams and is in use in multiple parts of our organization. Alteryx also delivers Experian demographic content to other clients in their product offering. We're highly likely to renew, but that decision is way above my pay grade.

Usability

Alteryx

Alteryx 9.2
Based on 35 answers
The sheer breadth of the functionality and how easy it is to use makes it absolutely revolutionary for any company still using Excel, SQL, etc. The interface is drag and drop and does not require any coding, but also benefits from those with coding ability as it is fully integrated with the likes of R, Python, Spark, etc. Just how quickly the impact of Alteryx is seen is really very impressive.

Overall usability is absolutely worth the price. It help me to save tons of time working on raw data in Excel file. It also minimize the discrepancy in data format when there are multiple user inputting the data. Every data inputted in Salesforce is standardized, therefore it is very easy to keep track / generating performance report even though you are having more than 20 projects recorded in Salesforce Einstein Analytics.

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.

The online community support is great. 90% of my questions about how to do even esoteric stuff in Alteryx is a search away.When I have had difficult technical problems, Alteryx support has been prompt and helpful. At conferences the support lab and tips and tricks presentations have helped me work through difficult and thorny long term problems.

I gave Salesforce Einstein Analytics tool a slightly above average rating of 6. Because its trailhead portal has extensive documentation and use cases around how to implement Salesforce tools and how to master their user interface. But it has limited video or human tutorials. Plus, there is not enough background on web analytics, statistical modeling, artificial intelligence or machine learning. So, a user may struggle when leveraging their dashboard or modeling features. Finally, support documents are focused on learning the tool but don't provide enough context on how to do custom implementation or troubleshoot data integration issues.

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.

An implementation partner would certainly result in greater output in a more efficient amount of time. However, I have found implementation partners to be extremely expensive for the output received (at least working for a non-profit company they are frequently unaffordable). Internal implementation does help with usable output though since internal knowledge would better know the data architecture and business processes

Alternatives Considered

Alteryx

Alteryx is way better than Microsoft Excel. It visually lets you do things to the data, one tool at a time. And, you can just delete the tool if it did not do what you were wanting it to do. Excel is a nice app, but Alteryx expands the capability so much more, especially when combining different data sources.

Tableau is the absolute top of the class when it comes to business intelligence, but it doesn't make sense for every business case. In our case, we needed a simple data visualization platform for our CRM platform and sales pipeline. Salesforce Analytics, while nowhere near as robust, did the job we needed it to do perfectly in a significantly more cost-effective manner.

Return on Investment

Alteryx

  • Alteryx does an excellent job of integrating consumer and spatial data to calculate and visualize things like locations within a certain drive-time radius.
  • For visualization purposes I had to move the data to excel for some decent graphs.
  • It can become very expensive.

Tableau CRM (formerly Einstein Analytics)

  • Salesforce Einstein Analytics helped lift roi of email marketing campaigns funded by our suppliers or category teams by improving their open and click rates
  • Salesforce Einstein Analytics helped reduce cart abandonments and improved conversion rates of our product campaigns.
  • Salesforce Einstein Analytics was not that effective in improving adoption of AI tools such as chatbot, voice assistant tool or mobile app. Because of lower sample data.
