Pros and Cons

  • Data mining: data can be manipulated easily and completely replace excel formulas.
  • Forecasting: It has inbuilt statistical models that can serve basic forecasting very well, moreover one can also manipulate the R coding that can help with complex data.
  • Statistical analysis: this tool can easily replace the Minitab software by providing solutions for statistical analysis.
  • Graphs and charts: Although Alteryx is able to generate graphs and charts, they are not visually pretty and has a big room for improvement.

Pros and Cons

  • To get data from various disparate sources and to have a holistic view of the marketing activities.
  • To provide sales with leads weekly or monthly based on their marketing engagement.
  • To analyze the CRM systems like Pardot & Salesforce to create a list of customers for targeted email campaigns.
  • Though it provides good data blending functionality, the visualization aspect is missing. For visualizing data you need Tableau or Power BI.
  • They have some shortcomings like when reading similar files. The tool figures the datatypes randomly and a integer data type might be read as text, and then the tool is unable to read data. There is a way around this but it's cumbersome.
  • The API connections are limited at this point. They do have a macro which you can create to connect to any API, but it's not very straightforward.

Pros and Cons

  • Clean any data
  • Data wrangling
  • Predictive analytics
  • Spatial Analytics
  • Creating Macros are not easy for less experienced people, need lot of work.
  • Spatial analytics is very good but again it need more focus to understand.
  • Predictive analytics is not used by everyone, it's potential can be unmasked only with data science use cases.
  • Data Visualization capabilities

Pros and Cons

  • Macros are a lifesaver. You can just write a set of logics, create a macro, and use it in any flow and any number of times.
  • Data Connectivity for SQL is super easy, and it's powerful.
  • Scheduling the flows and reporting. I use it to schedule the flows in off business hours so that I can get the data ready for the next day.
  • The Maps feature in the tool can be improved.
  • Alteryx could come up with the feature of pausing the workflow. As of now, there is only an option to stop.

Pros and Cons

  • Blending multiple data into one data set.
  • Alteryx is great for doing Spatial analysis with data.
  • Alteryx perfectly integrates with other application or data sources.
  • It doesn't have a perfect predictive model for predictive analysis.
  • Alteryx is moving into a prescriptive and cognitive analysis of data. Since we can do a very limited number of operations in this field.

Pros and Cons

  • Excellent support for the tools through training/white papers and online support.
  • Ease of use - high common sense factor makes the program easy to learn and apply.
  • Compatibility with everything but specifically with commonly used key programs like Tableau.
  • Cost is a factor - while support and training are "free" the software price is high.
  • It helps to have some good Excel experience to make instant adoption even easier.
  • The trainers tend to go a bit fast so slow learners may need multiple sessions.

Pros and Cons

  • Seamless Data Input (Ingestion): Alteryx is capable of connecting with many data sources, we have used Tableau in cloud-hosted solutions with additional support of OleDB & ODBC connections.
  • Advanced analytics: We have used statistical analytics tools which makes it easy for a user to look at data and provide simple summary statistics, while also having the ability to build advanced regression models.
  • Macros: Just like other tools (e.g. SAS), Alteryx builds a macro. Be it a batch or iterative, it can save loads of efforts for standard and recursive processes. We've built numerous macros and use at least 10+ in every workflow post design so data is handled the same way in every workflow for consistency and cutting down on copy/pastes.
  • Visualization needs severe improvement if it wants to be up to par from its market competitors like Tableau.
  • The workflow scheduler has been reported as frozen in the earlier version which needs betterment.
  • Lack of documentation for the few functionalities and higher cost is a trade-off as well.

Pros and Cons

  • Designing dashboards is very easy and intuitive in Alteryx. Although some form of analytical aptitude is needed, most of it is very user friendly.
  • Embedding R or Python Code is fairly straightforward in Alteryx. This makes it very sophisticated for data analysis and predictive data modelling.
  • Effective mathematical calculations-- which are difficult to code in SQL-- are very easy to write in Alteryx.
  • Improved Maps/ GeoCoding system for geographical analysis should be there.
  • Running data extracts can be made more efficient. Tableau does it much better.
  • Cross-Database joins should be allowed and the data extraction should be much simpler.

Pros and Cons

  • Objective analysis
  • Process build
  • Data integration
  • Faster speed of query
  • More complex join capability. Some more experienced users would like to make more complex joins after the data is in process map rather than a complete preparation before including in process map
  • Connection with Power BI, Tableu, or other graphical data tools would make more seamless intelligence

Pros and Cons

  • Makes automating data cleaning a breeze.
  • Data prep becomes a fun activity with Alteryx.
  • Analytics becomes more of a focus, as Alteryx is doing the heavy lifting.
  • Training seems to be lacking or expensive.
  • Offline guides would be helpful instead of logging into the online training.
  • Multi-use licence would be great to jump from laptop to desktop.

Pros and Cons

  • User-friendly interface - the tool structure and general workspace are very easy to pick up on. Short learning curve from "no experience" to "beginner user".
  • Standardization - modules/wizards allow a single tool to generate results for multiple clients, all through the use of a few actions/inputs.
  • Analytics - wide range of statistical analytics tools makes it easy for a user to look at data and provide simple summary statistics, while also having the ability to build advanced regression models.
  • Excel reporting - reports in PDF are fairly straightforward, but trying to output results in Excel can prove to be tricky/ugly.
  • Chart creation - current chart tool is very basic; needs to be a way to customize the look/feel of a chart more, as well as an easier way to incorporate "big" data that can be easily reported on/viewed.
