Alteryx Pros Alteryx Cons
Data blending
  • Very versatile tool for blending and formatting data with an ability to read and write in a multitude of formats. Allows for much more rapid and agile data manipulation than is possible when using MS Excel.
  • Data visualization is general is not a strength, with users commenting on the poor quality of visualizations necessitating exporting the data to another tool like Tableau. In particular, although the geo-spatial analysis is highly effective, the mapping/charting visualization outputs lag behind those of other tools.
User interface
  • Very intuitive drag-and-drop user interface making the program easy to learn and use.
  • Some users report difficulties in formatting reports appropriately.
Feature rich
  • In addition to data blending and preparation, the product also includes predictive analytics, and spatial analytics/mapping.
Geo-spatial analysis
  • The geo-spatial capability providing drive-time analysis, and spatial matching for campaign planning, gets very high marks.
  • The solution is praised for its speed in handling process and spatial data. The product can handle millions of records very rapidly.
Customer support
  • Users comment on the excellent customer service, and praise the live expert function as an easy way to get immediate help.

Alteryx Response to Reviewer Feedback

Alteryx Analytics is the leading platform for self-service data analytics. It provides analysts with the ability to prep, blend, and analyze all of their data using a repeatable workflow, then deploy and share analytics at scale for deeper insights in hours, not weeks. Analysts can connect to and cleanse data from data warehouses, cloud applications, spreadsheets, and other sources, easily join this data together, then perform predictive, statistical, and spatial analytics using the same intuitive user interface, without writing any code.

Alteryx has invested significant resources into making its platform easy to use for data analysts. Alteryx continues to refine tools for data preparation, blending, analytics, and reporting to make even the most advanced functions (e.g. predictive analytics) more accessible to users of all skill levels.

Alteryx has a robust technology and partner ecosystem that spans over 150 partners in more than 50 countries around the world. Included in those partnerships are comprehensive technology integration with all three of the leading data visualization vendors – Tableau, Qlik, and Microsoft. Hundreds of customers of these three visualization vendors are also customers of Alteryx because Alteryx Analytics combines the robust data preparation and data blending for large and diverse data sources, plus the predictive and spatial analytics that these tools lack. The resulting output from Alteryx Analytics can include the native file format used by all three visualization tools, allowing customers to choose the visualization tool that best fits their needs, rather than trying to replicate advanced data discovery functionality within Alteryx Analytics.
