Overall Satisfaction with Alteryx
Alteryx is great for blending data from different sources. We use it to format the data and combine different data in order to make it ready for Tableau. You can also connect to different APIs and schedule workflows to help automate things. We input data from sources like our LMS, Qualtrics survey results, and various spreadsheets.
- Blend data
- Format data
- Automate reports
- Prepare data for other apps like Tableau
- It is very hard to scroll within a workflow--it goes from slow to fast and no medium speed.
- I would love a feature to "pop out" the workflow to view in a full size window.
- Sometimes there are errors in the workflow that appear out of nowhere and resolve themselves. But it can cause the workflow to error out.
- Helps us save time, which saves money
- We are able to provide data easily to leaders to make decisions
- They have a very fair cost structure
Alteryx is way better than Microsoft Excel. It visually lets you do things to the data, one tool at a time. And, you can just delete the tool if it did not do what you were wanting it to do. Excel is a nice app, but Alteryx expands the capability so much more, especially when combining different data sources.

Alteryx is pretty intuitive to use. Plus, they offer great training that is online and free. It is in bite-sized pieces. New users can get started pretty quickly.
They provide a sales rep who holds regular "doctor" sessions to ask questions. They also provide regular training opportunities, webinars, free training, and an amazing conference. They're always updating the app and adding new features that turn out to be super useful. The app isn't very buggy, so the updates are usually for new features, not to fix things.
It's not the best for creating visuals and reports. But it is great at taking data and formatting it for an application to visualize the data, like Tableau. It is also best used when you are trying to combine data from different sources, as well as creating nice-looking spreadsheet outputs. The scheduling feature is great--you can set it up for users to receive spreadsheets/reports on a cadence and never have to touch the workflow!
