Alteryx Analytics review from an analyst's perspective

Alteryx could be very useful if you need to combine data from multiple data sources. Also, it would help data preparation and cleaning before analyzing data. If the data quality is already excellent, then it would probably be less useful.

Alteryx is excellent in a Windows environment where you need to process data, especially on-premises data. It handles structured data well; it struggles with unstructured data. If you have a heterogenous environment with Mac and Linux workers, you will need to either provision dedicated hardware or use virtual machines in order to run Alteryx.

Alteryx- the best data tool

  • Alteryx works very well when there are different files or different data sources that should be combined together. It is also good for data manipulation.
  • Alteryx can be used to build an ETL for a BI tool.
  • The join and union capabilities are a strong point for the tool. It is also very simple to use and intuitive.
  • I would not use Alteryx if you have few and small tables.

Likelihood to Recommend

Alteryx is best used for corporations that rely on large excel files and have too many reporting tasks to perform everyday. It will make repetitive tasks to run through just one click. It is also recommended for initial predictive analysis such as forecasting, demographic analysis and behavior analysis. Since it's compatible with "R", it adds even more functionality.

Likelihood to Recommend

Alteryx is well suited for joining data from disparate sources. The data should be in a continuous format. In most situations, there should be a common field between various datasets. It can help to provide an overview of systems and create reports for senior management. It can also connect to back end data repositories and collect information. It can also read large sized spreadsheets in a matter of seconds.

Alteryx is best suited in the places where you need to present your data in the form of raw data. For example, in scenarios where you want to shape and clean your data and fed the data into other application. Alteryx is less appropriate in the places where the end result should be in a well-finished dashboard. For example, in places where the user is expecting to see his data in the form of chats or in picturization form.

Well Suited:
If you are a non-techie and want to get started with Data Analysis.
If you want to handle large data and process it quickly.

Not Well Suited:
If you are a small startup and looking to not shell out money on analytics tools. The tool is a bit expensive.

It's well suited to data mining; lots can happen with Alteryx, and the time it requires to provide results is greatly low.
It's less appropriate to BI tools are required for even basic graphs and charts.

Alteryx: a pocket BI solution

Likelihood to Recommend

  • Alteryx analytics is particularly well suited for situations where a BI user needs to quickly prepare the data for analysis
  • Alteryx sells tom-tom maps and these maps are extremely useful for spatial analysis and help real estate or SCM teams plot routes and spatial charts
  • Alteryx makes predictive modeling easy
  • Alteryx lacks the capability to produce good visualization hence one should never try to achieve an end to end BI solution using only Alteryx.
  • If you prefer using a MacBook then you need to use a Windows VM to run alt Alteryx

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.

It's a good tool for working with huge sets of data. Very well suited for geographic and data analysis. Fantastic for combining data from multiple sources into one and writing data and reports out in Excel, PowerPoint, Access, text files, and even several GIS platforms. It is easy to write data in multiple files/slides/databases.

Likelihood to Recommend

Alteryx Analytics is very well-suited for areas like data analysis, designing dashboards, embedding basic mathematical models in the system and establishing data driven decision-making across the firm. In areas like healthcare, finance, insurance, banking, sports, etc where we have immense amounts of data, Alteryx can play a major role in helping people opt for a data-driven decision mindset.
It might not be a very good solution for areas like ETL (Extract Transform Load). It would be interesting to see if Alteryx diversified in that area as well.

Operations, business intelligence, Supplier performance, logistics, production bottlenecks. Essentially any case where information across departments is needed, we really see Alteryx being the go-to for objective dialogues. Previously, these departments were having subjective narratives on how to solve business problems, because the data was too difficult to connect and makes sense of. With Alteryx, the focus is on "What does the data show that are good options to change a business process?"

Pulling data from databases and preparing for data visualization is our primary use for Alteryx, however if you have perfect data, Alteryx can get redundant, but honestly who has that.

Alteryx Analytics is suitable for less technical users who do not have coding experience, you can gather information rather painlessly; however, it is still not quite as good as using a language such as Python or R to integrate your advanced analytics work.

Alteryx is a good tool for analytics productivity

Likelihood to Recommend

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.

More often than not, Alteryx can handle any situation or scenario thrown at it. Some may take a little more "trickery" along the way, but for the most part it is fairly easy to get from point A (data) to point B (results/report). And the nice thing is is that there is more than one way to produce the same result - two people with two different mindsets can ultimately create the same thing, but do so in a way that is better suited for their skill level.

It is very well suited for mid-sized data operations. One person working on a project is ideal. I have not used Alteryx in a collaborative project, so can't say for sure. It is quite powerful and compares well with the competitors. If you have data from disparate sources, it helps to have a tool like Alteryx.

Alteryx can do so much more than I use it for, so I believe the only case where Alteryx wouldn't be needed is when a department/team had a full development team to prep data pre-analysis or already has a central data store fully stood up and standardized. Alteryx works extremely well with a multitude of BI and database solutions and would be a great fit for any team trying to speed up the typical daily grind of data prep and ETL so their analytics and data team can be more agile, accurate, and automated.

It is great for dealing with mass quantities of data, not so good if you're trying to analyze. If you're dealing with 50k+ records, then it probably is considerably faster to deep-dive into the data with Alteryx. However, for anything under that, Excel is the better program for visually finding patterns and trends in data, at least for someone who has a limited tech background.

Great for working with huge sets of data (and small sets too). Very well suited for geographic and data analysis. Fantastic for combining data from multiple sources into one and writing data and reports out to Excel, PowerPoint, Access, text files and even several GIS platforms. It is easy to write out data to multiple files/slides/databases (and I'm talking thousands of files if necessary). Can produce great looking maps when the time is put in. This program would not be appropriate for companies with only small datasets. The program can be expensive but I understand that they recently tiered their products at different price levels.

About Alteryx Platform

The Alteryx Platform is a business intelligence and predictive analytics solution. The vendor's value proposition is that their solution provides analysts with the unique ability to easily 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. According to the vendor, analysts love the Alteryx Analytics platform because they can connect to and cleanse data from data warehouses, cloud applications, spreadsheets, and other sources; easily join this data together, then perform analytics – predictive, statistical, and spatial – using the same intuitive user interface, without writing any code. Additionally, the vendor says thousands of companies and data analysts worldwide rely on Alteryx daily.
