Alteryx Room for Improvement

Deputy Manager at Keppel
There are a few ways the solution could be made better. The graphical user interface could be made more friendly. I mean from the GUI point of view, it is a little dated. But from a functionality point of view, I think even for people who do not know the coding part and who are more business users than programmers, they would not have a very hard time using Alteryx for creating machine learning models. It is quite good and quite useful already without improvement to the GUI. It could just stand to be more modern-looking. I would like if they could make some type of free license for the product. Not a free full license but a limited edition or limited capability free version. The limited-time version is a little restrictive. A free, open-term desktop version like Power BI and Tableau and KNIME might help users more with discovery and utility. View full review »

I'm sure there is always development happening with the product, but I think there should be both cloud and on-premises options. We have not seen a cloud deployment and have not heard they will be making one available. I think if there is the cloud deployment available, it would definitely be more convenient for some users to engage with and use while lowering the implementation costs. Cloud deployment would be easier for us and our clients because a lot of services that we push to the clients are through the cloud only. It is expensive to buy additional licensing, and it is time and resource consuming to install onto our own hardware — which itself requires maintenance and administrative attention. On-premises can raise the cost of deployment over just using a cloud enrollment option. View full review »

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 final users' visualization within Alteryx. View full review »

I think the only area where the product lags is documentation and videos on the analytical app and the batch macro. We have learned the hard way, but I see people struggling there. Secondly, the tools for data science are not as user-friendly as KNIME. Additional features that could be included would be improved documentation, more user-friendly data science, and the pricing should be more competitive. View full review »

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 complex single line, and makes it very difficult. Then you you almost have to go back to management studio, and run it through management studio and put it through restructuring, and it just seems to me that that's not very user friendly.

The visualization could be improved, as could the BID bots. The solution could work on the BI side of the tool to make it a bit better. View full review »

Alteryx is very good - I don't see any room for improvement. I can't think of any downside to Alteryx. I use a lot of third-party tools with Alteryx. It would be great if Alteryx could take third party tools and incorporate them. View full review »

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. View full review »

In the database, it should be more functional and connect to more big data, especially using IPI. View full review »
