Overall Satisfaction with Alteryx Analytics

I have been using Alteryx for a year. In our organization, we use Alteryx to build a data model by cleansing data, shaping our data and doing advanced analytics with our data. In the analytical department, we are using Alteryx to analyze our data. We were unable to get insight and manipulate the data so, we adopted this tool to get more insight and do analytics to our data.
  • Blending multiple data into one data set.
  • Alteryx is great for doing Spatial analysis with data.
  • Alteryx perfectly integrates with other application or data sources.
  • It doesn't have a perfect predictive model for predictive analysis.
  • Alteryx is moving into a prescriptive and cognitive analysis of data. Since we can do a very limited number of operations in this field.
When we \ evaluated this product, we were focussed on doing advanced analytics with our data like the predictive, spatial and descriptive analysis. In all of these categories, Alteryx was the best. It took very less time to do this analysis in our environment. So, we opted Alteryx as the best solution.
We have been integrating/connecting our SQL data source to Alteryx where we have many numbers of rows and many tables in our data source. Alteryx can easily run a query to the data source and get me part of the data for a sample workflow, and later, when we want it at a big scale it drags the data into its workflow for analysis. It is very easy for merging and blending your data in these platforms. It hardly takes a few steps.
Alteryx is the only platform where it allows you to share analyzed reports to others without any restrictions. It also provides me the option to provide credentials to our data. Alteryx is not limited to its environment and provides an option to extend its environment for sharing and collaboration.
Alteryx is best suited in the places where you need to present your data in the form of raw data. For example, in scenarios where you want to shape and clean your data and fed the data into other application. Alteryx is less appropriate in the places where the end result should be in a well-finished dashboard. For example, in places where the user is expecting to see his data in the form of chats or in picturization form.
