- Data Integration
- Data Engineering and Analysis

  • Recently we solved used it to extract information of 8000-9000 paper bills - the workflow was built within 30 minutes and saved months of manual work.
  • Another one included the connection to our ERP system. We use Alteryx to improve our Masterdata quality and identify bad entries with ease.
  • Additionally Alteryx is currently used to run all our internal data processes between system. A follow up step on many of them is a Tableau dashboard that visualizes it.

  • Cloud Platform
  • It helped to improve our over all data quality
  • ROI increased
Alteryx is 100x easier to use for every business user compared to KNIME. KNIME is a great tool for data scientists and programmers, but our business users had a hard time adapting to it. The ease of use of Alteryx is just superior and even my boss is able to build and read workflows that I or others have build.

Do you think Alteryx delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Alteryx again?


Alteryx might not be cheap, but is simply the easiest and best to use ETL tool on the market. The simple drag and drop interface, simplified tools (formulas don't need programming) are inkomparable to everything on the market. Alteryx UX and UI is well thought out and can easily be adapted by new user.
The Alteryx community is an amazing resource of support. My questions are often answered within a hour without paying anything. The Alteryx support is also a great resource, but usually we don't even need them as the community is good enough to fulfil all our needs and problems.
I would recommend for every data preparation workflow / process where business users are involved. Alteryx is just easier and does not need any technical knowledge. The simple drag and drop surface is easy to learn, read and maintain. On the other hand I would now recommend it for big data (1 TB +) or data science. While it does provide some tools for data science and it's a nice starting, it is definitely not good for productionizing data science (yet).
