Overall Satisfaction with Alteryx Platform

Alteryx is the tool of choice for data manipulation. It is being used in departments that have a need to solve complex and custom data processing problems. It solves all problems for the direct mail industry.
  • Alteryx handles metadata really well. The tools are intuitive in their use.
  • For analytics Alteryx it is a great platform.
  • There are barely any software bugs in the product.
  • The error messages are actually helpful to debug modules.
  • If a load-balancing application is internally developed on top of Alteryx processing nationwide universes can be really fast.
  • Speed is somewhat lacking.
  • It isn't optimally geared for ETL.
  • Intellisense would be a nice feature
  • There is no version control.
  • The tools could use some more features.
  • More pre-built macros would be nice
For analytics Alteryx outperforms others.
The product fulfills business needs and it is a pleasure to work with the provider.
  • It gets the job done fast.
  • It lends itself well for people with a less-technical aptitude to understand the data process.
  • It empower the user to come up with any possible solution to a problem.
It is a great departmental solution.
