Alteryx Analytics

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.

Tableau Desktop

With Tableau, you can create an infinite number of tables, of greater or lesser complexity, and be able to discover and analyze information with very visual graphics. You can use unlimited amounts of data, it is an ideal solution for companies and organizations. The additional information for the users is not totally private, it can be viewed by other users, although there is the modality of granting a permission to access. The files used for graphics must always be updated and must have access to the Internet to access the tool

Pros

  • It can independently generate required analytics instead of having to require specialists.
  • The ability to read and write in a multitude of formats: from Excel, Access tables, Tableau and Teradata to MapInfo, ESRI, Google Earth, etc.
  • Single drag and drop workflow instead of multiple tools.

  • Connection to data sources, and variety of connectors available
  • Easy-to-use data blending functionality, once you experiment it a few times
  • Makes visual analysis accessible to a wide variety of users
  • Publication of dashboards on Tableau Server is a breeze

Cons

  • The visualization that Alteryx provides can be improved much more than where it stands tonight.
  • It doesn't seem to be able to process Big Data as efficiently as I would have liked.
  • There are a lot of things that you need to learn.
No photo available
  • Dashboard Formatting - while the dashboard capability is robust and easy to use, it can be difficult at times to do some of the finer detailing, like formatting, coloring and highlighting. Once mastered, it is again very versatile, but is not as intuitive and there is a learning curve.
  • An Undo Button! Tableau current does not include an 'undo' button which can be extremely irritating if you make a mistake that is difficult to reverse.
  • Table Joining - the interface/wizard used when attempting to join tables and connect different data sources is not as intuitive as it could be, which makes it difficult to perform some of the incredible data connectivity that is available.

Tableau just keeps getting better with time, and continues to add new features with each new release. My clients love the wide variety of data representations, and it has become an invaluable tool in providing high quality products that satisfy customer needs. Tableau makes my job easier, more efficient and more effective.

Tableau's main selling points are the fact that you can connect to almost any data source within a couple of clicks and the fact that you can slice-and-dice your data with just a few drags. Tableau also has the ability to grow with the user's comfort level. The most advanced you get, the more you can utilize Tableau's advance features, such as table calculations, to create truly amazing analyses.

Reliability and Availability

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.

When used as a stand-alone tool, Tableau Desktop has unlimited uptime, which is always nice. When used in conjunction with Tableau Server, this tool has as much uptime as your server admins are willing to give it. All in all, I've never had an issue with Tableau's availability.

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.

Breadth of Deployment

Our company kept it contained in the marketing department. Other departments may not understand it.

The department I worked in had around 30 people. I believe we had at least 15 licenses possibly more.

Alternatives Considered

We tested this against several COTS packages and found Alteryx to be a more cost effective solution that could be deployed to a variety of user types
Mark Frisch profile photo
the option is that Tableau Public has the features of Tableau Desktop available for free, at least for a trial period.

Doesn't really allow for much collaboration in real time other than sharing flat files with coworkers. Have to utilize a 3rd party cloud hosting platform in order to try to collaborate on a workflow.

The fact of being able to operate with data from different sources and cross it and present it in powerful visualizations are my reasons for positively evaluating the collaborative work capabilities in Tableau Desktop

Data Integration

Alteryx Analytics8.9
Based on 16 answers
That is the best feature according to me. I could use data from a wide range of sources and it was pretty easy to merge all of them which isn't really an easy thing to do. It makes our life a lot easier when the blending capabilities are so easy to manage. Don't have to worry about having only a specific type of data source.

Although tableau is highly interactive and fast but with very large dataset its performance degrades heavily. So up to certain extent its really good but after that we have to take care of its performance issues.

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.
No photo available
  • Increased productivity: ability to automate recurring reports and speed creating new reports. Decreased error rate. Reduced days of effort to hours.
  • Increased client satisfaction: better visuals; more flexible, deeper exploration available; faster, higher quality delivery
