What needs improvement?

Even when it already includes some AI models, this area could be improved. The another area which could be improved is the visualizations. It would be great to create the… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Opt for the three year subscription. It is 20% less than the yearly one. It is $4,000 a year, so it is cheap versus other solutions. It also accomplishes three times the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used several ETL tools, but none had the scope of Alteryx nor the ability to perform the analysis itself.

What other advice do I have?

Download the trial and test it. You will be amazed. It is the complete package for people who work with data. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Provide a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated Datawatch and QlikView. Datawatch: Performance was not great and it was not so straightforward to implement.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides opportunities to do some pretty complex tasks easily, without having to worry about the Java. The tools are built-in. You just plug and play, drag and drop, once you understand how to use the tools, it is easy.

What needs improvement?

I think better visualization would be helpful. In terms of data extraction, during the sequel queries of servers as an example, you can structure your sequel query and it's fine, very readable, but once you run it, it crashes into one… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is a little bit pricey. The desktop version is cheaper, it is on a one year license. And, if you want to do anything on an enterprise name it is quite expensive. The current pricing model may get to be too much in three to four years… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would advise that you should ask yourself what you need and want, and do a one-month trial.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also considered DataBricks.

How has it helped my organization?

We can now provide a single source of truth and build a bigger picture.

What needs improvement?

The learning curve is long, and there is lack of e-learning; the tool is not user-friendly to a non-technical user.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The seat is too expensive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Oracle BI, and we are still using it. The value add of Alteryx is the agility for making changes, and speed of deployment.

What other advice do I have?

I am using the desktop version. The only issue is it supports only a 64-bit system so I have to use an earlier version. My advice to regarding this product is to keep learning and not rely too much on… more»

Different ETL tools (SSIS, Talend). We switched for ease of use and a wide range of features.

Start small and prove the value for specific use cases.

We worked with other ETL tools for a long time, Alteryx was chosen based on ease of use and value add.

What is most valuable?

Geo features have made spatial mapping large retail universes possible. The basic package of manipulation tools are the tools that my team use the most. It makes lengthy Excel processes seamless and lighting quick in comparison.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows for manipulation and automation, which has greatly reduced the amount of time required per project.

What needs improvement?

A feature which allows the user to be able to click on an output (in a file browser) and see the creation of the module would be fantastic. Also, when a process completes there is a notification, but the notification does not include the process's name.

What do you think of Alteryx?

What is our primary use case?

I implemented Alteryx for a logistics company.  It helps clean messy data and provides spatial analysis.

We create workflows to automate central reporting and visualize data directly in Tableau.  We use Alteryx everyday. Using the product, we earn a lot of time, which is used to do other tasks.

What is most valuable?

Multicategories exist in Alteryx: These categories are flexible and answer a lot of controlling rules.

What needs improvement?

Alteryx could be improved in the area of analytics and central governance.  The next feature release should include easier reporting.  Improvement in the coexistence of In-Database, Python and R tools.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
