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.

Spotfire Data Science

It's well suited for companies who are working long-distance and who have lots of data to organize and present. My company does extensive field work collecting thousands of data points at a time, in many cases, so this is an excellent way to share data collected in the field with those still in the office so that reports can begin before our travels are really finished. It makes the office much more productive!TIBCO Spotfire Data Science is less suited for companies with older employees or companies that are generally in one office and not doing distance work. It can be a little tricky for older people to grasp the interface and really utilize the program to its full potential so of course spending more time learning the software than using it effectively isn't a great use of time or money.

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.

  • It has a great user interface, easy to navigate and learn on the fly.
  • There are lots of great options for data organization and analysis! Makes it a handy tool for presentations as well.
  • A collaborative ability is highly valued for my company where we often work from home or on site. Being able to share the data with those in the office so multiple people can look at it is a great tool!

Cons

  • You cannot as a novice just play around and get started. The learning curve is very steep, rewarding, but steep. I can't help but wonder if the product would not benefit from a "light" version for less data-mining accustomed business managers.

  • The visualization aspect of the program can be a little tricky to figure out. It's great to have options but it will take a bit of practice before your figures start looking the way you want (or that's how it was for me).
  • While younger employees like myself may quickly grasp on to the program, the modern interface is difficult for older employees to navigate and get comfortable with. This isn't a problem until you are trying to collaborate with them and things go awry. Perhaps they just need in-depth tutorials to help expedite their learning process.
  • It can be difficult to connect to other databases to import existing data. It's just not an obvious pathway and required some researching before I got the hang of it.

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

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 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

TIBCO Spotfire Data Science is an attempt to make data science as accessible as possible without turning off the professional analyst. The software has pretty much every analytical model most analysts will ever need and the point-and-click interface is top notch. The downside of TIBCO Spotfire Data Science is that it is not the quickest running program, nor are the data visualizations world-class. The software is simply run of the mill compared to other more advanced data visualization software.

Return on Investment

  • The ease of use of this tool allows your data team to get off the ground quickly and efficiently.
No photo available
  • Programming data science projects using R or Python takes a lot more time than it does in TIBCO Spotfire Data Science. TIBCO seems to have thought through what would save the typical analyst time and what the typical analyst does every day. The software is perfect for the analyst who likes an Excel-type interface. For analysts with this background, the tool saves lots and lots of time. It's definitely a positive return on investment for this type of analyst.
  • For an analyst that doesn't know a whole lot about statistics, TIBCO Data Science was a negative return on investment because the time spent figuring out what the different models mean and how to use them was generally a waste of time. The software is aimed at professionals, not amateurs.
  • Perhaps the highest return on investment is from the data mining component of TIBCO Spotfire Data Science. The user interface is awesome, and the many capabilities are perfect for analysts that know and want to do a wide range of analytical tasks.
