Provides a single source of truth to help us see the bigger picture

Pros and Cons

  • "The value add of Alteryx is the agility for making changes, and speed of deployment."
  • "The learning curve is long, and there is lack of e-learning; the tool is not user-friendly to a non-technical user."

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 the support team.

    Its drag and drop workflow creation capability is like drawing a flow chart.

    I can pipe external data onto a server in a temporary table. This frees my machine up while the server does all the heavy lifting.

    What other advice do I have?

    Before you download the 14-day trial, compile a list of processes that you want to improve. Once you start improving processes, you won’t want the trial to run out.
