Overall Satisfaction with Alteryx
We use Alteryx to pull in data from our source systems and transform the data to our needs. Alteryx has been extremely helpful to pull in data as it is super quick and allows for very custom queries. The IN-Db toolset is a gamechanger as it allows users to build complex SQL statements with ease.
- Quickly query databases with In-DB Tools
- Easily make any transformations needed to your data
- Visualize your data pipeline and process from start to end
- Ability to visualize the actual data easily
- Macros are powerful can be overly complex at times
- Error messages are often not very helpful and provide little context
- Fairly expensive product but worth it.
- Able to use Alteryx to replace other legacy systems
- Sped up the data run process, reducing steps and time
Alteryx bar far and away blows the competition out of the water. It is super easy to pick up and learn and it is so powerful. Other systems I have used are complicated and clunky often giving errors. Alteryx has made my life as a data analyst so much easier.

Alteryx is super easy to pick up and use. Almost every functionality is super intuitive and anyone with an understanding of data would be able to master it in a short time. The only thing that is holding it back from a perfect 10 is that some of the very advanced features like Macros and Analytic apps can get confusing, specifically when dealing with user input.
I have only utilized Alteryx support once but the representative was super helpful and got my issue solved shortly. Another great feature of Alteryx is that there are plenty of resources out there to help guide you through your work. The community forums are very active and there seems to already be an answer for most issues you might have.
Alteryx is best suited at hitting a database and querying data from it. From there it does a great job at efficiently taking that data and transforming it in any way necessary to fit your need. It makes doing complex joins and transformations super easy. Creating custom columns is also super easy and helpful.
Alteryx Feature Ratings
I can only speak to its usage in my own function, which is Finance, however, usage of Alteryx is very team dependent and spans across all functions. Within Finance, it is very commonly used amongst all analysts (data, business, process) and other technical roles. It is not a required or enterprise tool, but it is becoming more and more used.
