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.

SnapLogic

SnapLogic is well suited for data integration across varied sources by non developers or semi developers when access to certain data is more important than the whole system itself. Using it for creating data warehouses is a bit challenging and time consuming proposition using this tool.

Pros

  • Excellent support for the tools through training/white papers and online support.
  • Ease of use - high common sense factor makes the program easy to learn and apply.
  • Compatibility with everything but specifically with commonly used key programs like Tableau.

  • Their customer service response time is brilliant.
  • SFTP tasks do a great job in reading the file directly from the server, instead of having to download it and then read it.
  • Tasks expose the ability to run them using external job schedulers.
  • Once you have a server up, setting up SnapLogic service does not take long. They have good documentation and customer support too.

Cons

  • Sometimes the desktop version of authoring tool crashes! It's been unstable in the previous versions but gets better. Even if it doesn't crash, it used to be slow or not responding.
  • When running several version of database drivers in local machine or server, it is tricky to set up database connections. Often you have to figure out it by googling the problem and solution. There are not many knowledge bases from Alteryx.
  • Alteryx project file creates .bak file automatically. It is useful to prevent for the purpose of back up, sometimes it's not necessary. But it is not changeable for some reason. By default, it always creates backups.

  • They need to have a way to connect to GitHub to allow the users to maintain their version control in GitHub. This is a missing functionality.
  • As pipelines become complex, it's difficult to have all the snaps stitched together - just like to see it done differently.
  • They do not have a way to start/stop a preview. This is hard to use, especially if you have to stop an accidental preview invocation.

I personally have moved to a different position that does not require data analysis tools. I really enjoyed working with Alteryx and think it is a great tool, but have moved to a different organization and role.

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

We did not do any comparison of Alteryx with other tools, but before Alteryx we used Sandbox tables in our databases. It caused a lot of issues in terms of data consistency, workflow automation, and patient data privacy and security. Using Alteryx resolved a lot of the issues.

Snaplogic was much better than Boomi in the customer response time. In fact, this was one of the deal-breaker reasons. SnapLogic was better than Informatica in its ability to read directly from the sources/SFTP files instead of downloading them.Pentaho is great, but we wanted an iPaaS and hence chose SnapLogic.

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.

  • Positive Impact - allows us to reach out to webservices and third party vendor's APIs.
  • Positive Impact - allows us to have different ETL environments, all in the cloud.
  • Negative impact - Has a good learning curve and not many online tutorials. So users have to spend time playing around before understanding how to do things.
