Alteryx Analytics

Well suited: if an organization already has a lot of running ETLs or pipelines but need to systemize them, Alteryx is a good choice. It would be good to figure out how well Alteryx would be harmonized with the existing components, but in a general sense, it may be well harmonized. Less appropriate: Alteryx is good for "automation", but some data developers and analysts may prefer to remain and keep using SQL tools. One should be careful of not just adding "one more layer or tool" into the existing pipeline and make it more complicated to manage.

Tableau Public

Generating data-based reports for donors or board of directors. However, note that the public version should not be used for any data that you would like to keep private. Also good for creating unique data visualizations to use in presentations, or simpler visualizations to use in the text of a blog post or in a social media post.

Pros

  • Alteryx provides an integrated workflow management environment for data blending, analytics, and reporting. It is also very extensible to be connected to a variety of data connections including major databases (Oracle, etc.), analytics tools (R), and visualization tools such as Tableau through its plugins. Our department used Oracle and Tableau already and it was well integrated with Alteryx.
  • The workflow authoring environment in Desktop is easy to use so that most of the users (if they are a bit skilled data developers or analysts) may not need the training to use its basic functions. Drag and drop interface and icons are intuitive to understand.
  • When running Alteryx workflows, it is easy to monitor and track what's the progress by seeing percentages. It is helpful to balance and manage bandwidths of database servers, especially when to populate large data sets.

  • Clean - easy to present to clients.
  • Simple - the training was shorter than other efforts I have done and the creation of materials effortless with helped with user adoption. Users liked the product so they were more inclined to learn it.
  • Customization - Being able to run short sprints was a key for my project and using on-the-go features allowed the customization by non-developers quickly.

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.

  • Not useful for anything you need secure.
  • No ability to access databases. Static information only.

Likelihood to Renew

Alteryx Analytics6.5
Based on 14 answers
Alteryx has become integral to my job and to the expectation of upper management. They have now become accustomed to the lightening quick turnaround that Alteryx can provide. Not renewing Alteryx would take our department, and me, back to what would seem like the dark ages. Additionally, Alteryx (the company) is very aggressive in improving and upgrading Alteryx (the program) on a continual basis. It is very clear that they are in constant search for new features, capabilities and improvements. They do not rest on their laurels.

In the end, Tableau continues to innovate and deliver new functionality every year. Technical support is good, they also provide user forum(s) where experienced users share their knowledge and insights, as well as assist newer users with specific questions. This space (Business Intelligence) continues to grow and is very competitive with new vendors and products coming out all the time. That said, we've yet to see a product that can match Tableau.

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 found it sufficient, and fast. I could easily "kick the tires" with Tableau on my data so I got up and running fast.

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.

Start at the end and work backward. Identify the business case / issue and questions the end users have, then identify the data needed, and where to get it.

Breadth of Deployment

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

We use Tableau internally across the organization, as well as provide a suite of developed visualizations to K-12 Education and Government customers across the United States.

Alternatives Considered

Haven't used any other products that come close to comparing to Alteryx...
Cameron Tubbs profile photo
We evaluated about 15 products when we selected Tableau 7 years ago, and periodically review products from other vendors (e.g. Microsoft, QlikView, Tibco Spotfire, Birst, Pentaho, etc.). To date, Tableau offers the widest variety of options and functionality at a reasonable price and delivers great value for the money.

I haven't had a chance to use Alteryx for collaborating, as I was only working on it. But I had to share a lot of reports, and analytics.

Visualizations are "published" from Tableau Desktop to Tableau Server, both with the public edition and the "for a fee" version. Once published, these are native web applications and may be accessed via a standard browser. Tablet applications are provided as well for iPad and Google Droid tablets. End user interactive functionality across web and tablet platforms is provided, enabling end users to interact "live" with their data, asking questions and gaining insights.

Data Integration

Alteryx Analytics8.9
Based on 16 answers
We had many different sources of data. It was difficult to integrate them. We also had difficulty in cleaning datasets and preparing for the analytics. Alteryx is very powerful in that regards. And it is very easy to use, even for a business user. Not much technical know-how is required. But it is always good to have SQL knowledge.

The ease of merging data from new or old systems is easily managed. As long as there is a reasonable template for source information as well as reasonable uses of characters and spaces, the information does merge and read appropriately. For product SKUs with four levels of information (ranging around 4,000 parts) and five years of historical data for each level it takes 4-5 hours to integrate.

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.

  • Quick visualizations.
  • Clean design. If you are a fan of Edward Tufte or Stephen Few, then you favor a lean, clean look. That seems to be Tableau's default. I appreciate that.
