Alteryx Analytics

It is well suited where the user likes to write some code from time to time and also in cases where machine learning is required. Alteryx uses R for its machine learning which makes it life easier. Scenarios where maps need to be created for visualization are the examples. It lags a lot compared to other similar softwares for visualization but is very friendly for data analysis.

Toad Data Point

I cannot say a bad thing about this product, it has been a lifesaver for our teams multiple times. Before this product we would have had to spend hours trying to consolidate all the datasets from various areas into one area (usually ended up being Access unfortunately). I wish we would have purchased this product much earlier.

Pros

  • Blend multiple sources of data
  • Append or update existing data
  • Allows for powerful insights for non-technical users
Darrell Haley Jr. profile photo
  • When I am not in the office, I can have someone that has used it only a hand full of times jump in and produce a great looking report by using the interface which is nice looking and intuitive. This strength of TDP is ideal for those reports that have to get out ASAP and an SMA is not available.
  • The ER Diagrammer helps in building those relationships in a hurry if you're doing some business analysts. You can't get this feature for the price.
  • I use the explain plan when I can't figure out why a query is not returning the results I think it should. It is a powerful tool and it's easy to see the problems with the representation.

Cons

  • Improve work flow in modules, sometimes buggy when dealing with multiple files
  • On-screen wizard could help demonstrate common best practices
  • Add more tools that could benefit the user without them having to create macros
Darrell Haley Jr. profile photo
  • At times the tool does seem a little slow some speed tweaks would be welcome.
  • To make it even more intuitive adding intellisense would be nice.
  • A data presentation dash would be a nice touch to customize data.

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.

Usability

Through a graphical UI one can perform engineering and development, other vendors do not have such a code-less interface.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

1. RapidMiner - another similar tool with rich set of functionalities, strong hep and support and similar black box algorithms with ease of drag - drop linking of components to achieve the purpose. Text mining is a great functionality here which is missing in Alteryx.

Toad Data Point is a great replacement for the older/obsolete Oracle Discoverer tool. Toad Data Point can easily take over all of Discover's functionality and workflows. Both tools work well with Excel as an output but Toad Data Point can actually read Excel data as a data store...and produce Excel pivot tables, refresh data in the spreadsheets, and more. The OBIEE environment is a different tool in that it is more of an overall data analysis/delivery solution complete with dashboards/alerts/web deployment that includes mobile devices. Toad Data Point does a better job across a range of different data sources but its primary focus is data analysis and data prep...not so much on the presentation side, as of this writing.

Collaboration and Sharing

It is very easy to share the platform with a given set of users which makes collaboration really easy. Access control makes it easier for us to give access to different teams for viewing some of the parts with which they might be working without having to worry about the rest getting disturbed.

In our company we don't share data across teams it's for the owner only. The report distribution is easy to use and the formatting, once you get the hang of it, works well. We are behind a firewall so security has never been a issue.

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.

As with the Toad product line connecting to a data source is as easy as a few clicks and you are seeing the data. Toad has always done a great job with ease of use to connect to the databases you use.
