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.

SAS Enterprise Guide

I think SAS Enterprise does a great job for SAS analysts that don't have a very good grasp of base SAS. The software makes SAS much more user-friendly. With that said, SAS Enterprise Guide also does a very good job offering a host of per-packaged graphics and data transformations. I can't image using base SAS without SAS Enterprise anymore. I think SAS Enterprise Guide is most useful for traditional analytical processes, such as time-series forecasting, outlier detection, and econometrics. I think the software is less useful for advanced machine learning or AI. SAS' Enterprise Miner does a much better job at that.

Pros

  • User-friendly interface - the tool structure and general workspace are very easy to pick up on. Short learning curve from "no experience" to "beginner user".
  • Standardization - modules/wizards allow a single tool to generate results for multiple clients, all through the use of a few actions/inputs.
  • Analytics - wide range of statistical analytics tools makes it easy for a user to look at data and provide simple summary statistics, while also having the ability to build advanced regression models.

  • I think the most useful aspect of SAS Enterprise Guide is the ability to use a point-and-click interface to create graphics, transform data, and perform statistics. The best part is that SAS Enterprise Guide creates base SAS code from the process, making it easy to reproduce analyses.
  • SAS Enterprise Guide makes creating summary statistics about as easy as it gets. If one doesn't know proc means or proc tabulate, one can use SAS Enterprise Guide instead.
  • The time-series forecasting procedures within SAS Enterprise Guide produce fairly good results. SAS Enterprise Guide makes time-series model comparisons relatively straight-forward.

Cons

  • Excel reporting - reports in PDF are fairly straightforward, but trying to output results in Excel can prove to be tricky/ugly.
  • Chart creation - current chart tool is very basic; needs to be a way to customize the look/feel of a chart more, as well as an easier way to incorporate "big" data that can be easily reported on/viewed.

  • SAS Enterprise Guide is nowhere near as efficient as base SAS. The program takes longer to load up, and running analytics on multiple millions of records takes much longer than base SAS.
  • The default coloring schemes of SAS Enterprise Guide are hideous. If you plan on presenting the results of SAS Enterprise Guide graphics, be prepared to make a number of coloring changes.
  • The base SAS code produced by SAS Enterprise Guide is good, although it still requires some clean-up. And sometimes the created code doesn't work when attempting to re-run it on the same analysis. That doesn't happen too often, but sometimes.

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.

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

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

Haven't used any other products that come close to comparing to Alteryx...
Cameron Tubbs profile photo
Of the software tools I have tried, SAS Enterprise Guide is my preferred choice because of the efficiency of processing, the line-by-line processing, the ease of writing code, and the customer support. SAS appears to have put lots of effort into making SAS Enterprise Guide one of the best products the company produces. SAS Enterprise Guide, of course, is not the easiest to simple econometrics. It does take a little more effort to become advanced.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • SAS Enterprise Guide saves tons and tons of time. An analyst that makes $100/hr programming base SAS should be able to get a job done in a third of the time, meaning a savings per day of around $500. If you use SAS or plan to use SAS, I think SAS Enterprise Guide is the best add-on.
  • Because SAS makes many analytical processes easy to perform, sometimes less experienced analysts will pretend to know what they are doing simply by trusting what SAS is doing. Essentially, the software may lure some analysts into a false sense of professional knowledge. If you're someone who criticizes model building for a living, you'll likely need to spend time with such individuals, explaining where they went wrong and what SAS is doing.
  • Although SAS Enterprise Guide is not as fast as base SAS (because of all the additional features), it is still much quicker than any free tool I have tried. The proficiency makes up for the cost of the software.
