Alteryx - a solid legacy product

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Alternatives Considered

Alteryx Analytics and IBM's legacy SPSS modeler are very comparable, but Alteryx lacks many of the built-in integrations that Watson Studio offers, such as AutoAI, Neural Network modelers, Spark engines, etc. If you were comparing IBM SPSS and Alteryx, it would be a close call. If you are comparing Alteryx to Watson Studio, Watson Studio is the superior product.

Alteryx: a one tool solution for data visualization

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Alternatives Considered

Alteryx has high functionality compared to Power BI. It has the ability to produce high-end predictive analytics, which power BI fails to do. Data cleaning, data manipulation, and data visualization are way better in Alteryx compared to Power BI. Overall, Alteryx is a better option for high-end complex large data sets that require higher power of data preparation for high-end visualization. This makes Alteryx a far better option over BI.

Alteryx- the best data tool

  • Alteryx has been developed for a longer time. The capability to read big files in few seconds is very good and the way the tool is structure is very intuitive and easy to use.
  • At the same time Alteryx gives space for your own way and your own implementation.
  • Aletryx 's service is also very good and exhaustive.

Alteryx has a better interface than KNIME, though it's a bit more expensive than KNIME (an open source tool). We cannot use open-source software due to data privacy issues, and this is why we selected Alteryx. Alteryx also had an agreement with Macquarie and provided a discount on the purchase of ~10 licenses.

There's no need to write any codes unless very specific requirements. tremendously flexible and visual masterpiece on what actions one wants to perform. easy to interpret and follow for an unfamiliar person as have simple naming and definitions. wide use of the tool in some other statistical modeling versus other tools requires special skills for that.

When we \ evaluated this product, we were focussed on doing advanced analytics with our data like the predictive, spatial and descriptive analysis. In all of these categories, Alteryx was the best. It took very less time to do this analysis in our environment. So, we opted Alteryx as the best solution.

A great tool for predictive analytics and model development

To use advance statistics functions, we picked up alteryx with it's ease of use for model developers and users for testing who have lesser technology background with scripts directly imported from R or python. So it is simple to use and backward compatible with variety of data based ETL features as well.

I haven't used any other programs nor have I seen any that do this. I think it stands alone as a tool which allows such ease of use in data organizing and cleansing. While formulas or pivot tables in excel can help they are not easily repeatable across a variety of (dirty) data sources whereas Alteryx is.

Alteryx & Its Robust Server - #NotJustAViz

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

I have used Tableau Desktop. We selected Alteryx because of the better pricing options they had for our firm. Although Tableau has amazing features like data blending, story designing dashboards, parameters switches, geo coding, etc. Alteryx provides decent solutions in most of these areas as well.
Tableau Servers and licenses are very expensive on a per-user basis, and here Alteryx wins hands down.

It has much more data connections and flexibility but writing queries manually is typically more flexible. It stacks up very high. Good data, Alteryx and Tableau, and a user can be prepared for an impromptu meeting and make a big impact. I haven't used anything like Alteryx for a direct comparison since they have a pretty unique piece of the market.

Alteryx - powerful and easy to use

Talend is primarily for data integration and has quite advanced capabilities. But the user has to be more technical. Alteryx makes the process simple and any user can make use of its features.

Tableau was a good choice for data visualization. We needed beautiful charts and ways to represent data. Alteryx falls short in this aspect.

Alteryx's UI is fantastic insomuch that training can really be self-driven, albeit with several Google searches a day and visits to the Alteryx community. The other solutions we looked at were much less intuitive and not nearly as flexible, automated, and didn't give you the capability to watch the data be changed through every step of the process like Alteryx can do through browses and data samples.

Alteryx is much easier to learn and use. The breadth of capabilities for data blending, predictive and geo-spatial analysis is way above the other products. Plus Alteryx Gallery and in-database (DB) tools are a game changer compared any of the other products.

Tableau is used well with Alteryx. I usually let Alteryx do most of my data processing and export into tables for Tableau to use. It doesn't really stack against Alteryx since they have different uses, rather serve as good complements to each other. Plus there are tons of articles online that show a good portion of people use the two programs together.

We did not do any comparison of Alteryx with other tools, but before Alteryx we used Sandbox tables in our databases. It caused a lot of issues in terms of data consistency, workflow automation, and patient data privacy and security. Using Alteryx resolved a lot of the issues.

I haven't used anything that is similar to Alteryx. MapInfo, Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Teradata, etc. can only do their individual thing. Alteryx can do many, if not most (but not all) of the functions that these other programs can do. And much faster.

I have not used any other products that are similar to Alteryx. From what I have heard from fellow employees is that no other programs are quite as versatile as Alteryx. I do know that it has more diverse capabilities that exceed any of the other programs used at my company individually.
