We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The functionality of drag and drop is the most valuable. It is a very user-friendly tool that can be understood easily. My teams also work with other solutions, such as Integration Services, and these solutions are very difficult for people who don't have technical knowledge."
"The product offers very good analytics."
"The most valuable features are the integrated properties and integrated connectivity."
"The product is very stable. The performance is reliable."
"The solution has a good interface and the integration with GitHub is very useful."
"The user interface is very good. It makes me feel very comfortable when I am using the tool."
"From what we have seen so far, the solution seems very stable."
"Data Factory itself is great. It's pretty straightforward. You can easily add sources, join and lookup information, etc. The ease of use is pretty good."
"Powerful but easy-to-use and intuitive."
"It is a complete ETL Solution."
"From my experience so far, the best feature is the ability to copy data to any environment. We have 100 connects and we can connect them to the system and copy the data from its respective system to any environment. That is the best feature."
"It is easy to deploy workflows and schedule jobs."
"Its price can be improved. It is too expensive for our country. Because of its high price, we can't sell Alteryx Designer in this region. We used to be their reseller partner. There is also an additional cost for automating the data and running the flows, which makes it even more expensive. It will be very good if they can let users automate the data for free. Other solutions like Tableau provide this feature for free."
"The product could offer more connectors and more databases with support for the in-database function."
"If the price were reduced then it would be more competitive."
"The actual usage part of it needs to be explained more. It's too vague right now."
"In the next release, it's important that some sort of scheduler for running tasks is added."
"The solution should offer better integration with Azure machine learning. We should be able to embed the cognitive services from Microsoft, for example as a web API. It should allow us to embed Azure machine learning in a more user-friendly way."
"The solution needs to integrate more with other providers and should have a closer integration with Oracle BI."
"On the UI side, they could make it a little more intuitive in terms of how to add the radius components. Somebody who has been working with tools like Informatica or DataStage gets very used to how the UI looks and feels."
"The product could provide more ways to import and export data."
"The Microsoft documentation is too complicated."
"The user interface could use improvement. It's not a major issue but it's something that can be improved."
"The setup and configuration process could be simplified."
"It is too expensive for our country. We are a small country, so it is too difficult to sell this solution. With Alteryx Designer, if you want to automate the data and run the flows, you have to pay more money. We were trying to automate the flows, and we found out that people have to pay 600 more for this feature, which makes it even more expensive. We are a partner for Tableau, and we are working with Tableau Prep, which is like a mini Alteryx. In Tableau Prep, you can drag and drop and make new connections with the different data sources. You can make all the connections. You can also publish a source. You don't have to pay more money with Tableau. You pay like $5 per user per month to access it."
"Alteryx is a little bit expensive compared to competing solutions."
"In terms of licensing costs, we pay somewhere around S14,000 USD per month. There are some additional costs. For example, we would have to subscribe to some additional computing and for elasticity, but they are minimal."
"This is a cost-effective solution."
"The price you pay is determined by how much you use it."
"Understanding the pricing model for Data Factory is quite complex."
"I would not say that this product is overly expensive."
"The licensing is a pay-as-you-go model, where you pay for what you consume."
"Our licensing fees are approximately 15,000 ($150 USD) per month."
