Overall Satisfaction with Alteryx

I am working with an EPC company, which performs engineering, procurement and construction of chemical plant. My role is the administrator of 3D model of the chemical plant, with Smart 3D software of Hexagon. We are using Alteryx to retrieve data from 3D model database and perform blending and reporting work. The repeatable, easy-to-trace and eay-to-configure feature of alteryx has beem making my work so much easier. Recently we are doing some new challenges, to implement our engineering design rules into Alteryx flows to perform some design QC check and modeling work, then feedback to 3D model via API. We can already see some promising results.

Pros

  • Retrieving data from on-premise and cloud SQL Server
  • Repeatable schaduable workflow with Alteryx server
  • Greate capability for data cleansing, blending

Cons

  • Free feature to work with windows scheduler.
  • Alteryx is well acknowledged as an excellent BI tool and can do so many things. But we believe we have been able to elevate the capability of Alteryx to a brand-new field of process automation. We have seamlessly integrated the Alteryx with our major Production Software 3D CAD to fully take advance of the power of Alteryx not only for data prep, blend, analyze, and also perform data processing with industry design rules and logic, and then update the 3D CAD Model directly with API. Furthermore, the stability and repeatability are critical to our business and , our solution with Alteryx can offer them without doubt.
Alteryx has greatly meeting our deminds so far.
Sorry but we have not being use these advanced features.
