We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature of this solution is data preparation."
"Alteryx is so advanced. It's just drag and drop."
"The solution offers excellent predicting power. The accuracy and confidence have been great."
"This is a drag-and-drop tool which is easy-to-use and yet can be customized by creating your own components."
"The ease-of-use allows non-technical business users to directly create their own solutions without the use of additional development resources."
"Alteryx has made us more agile and increased the speed and effectiveness of decision making."
"The product is very stable and super fast, five-star. It's significantly more stable than it's nearest competitor."
"The design portion of this tool is easy to use without code, which his something that something we can appreciate."
"All of the features of this product are quite good."
"The event handling, such that the file system watcher, is in need of improvement."
"It would be great if Alteryx could take third party tools and incorporate them."
"The solution could work on the BI side of the tool to make it a bit better."
"The GUI interface functions but it could stand to be updated to a more modern look and feel."
"There is currently no cloud solution and this would be valuable for many clients."
"The server is too expensive for what you get and it really a designer desktop on a server."
"The only area where the product lags is documentation and videos on the analytical app and the batch macro."
"There are no ready models to use in analytics."
"The interface should be more user-friendly."
"The pricing is $5000 per year per production license."
"We have a yearly cost that we pay for the licensing. We do not pay any costs in addition to the licensing fees."
"There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else."
"The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive."
"Opt for the three year subscription. It is 20% less than the yearly one."
"ROI is huge. There are some secondary benefits, like analysts getting their post 5 PM time back or the ability to shorten all closing processes to a half or less."
"It is $4,000 a year, so it is cheap versus other solutions. It also accomplishes three times the volume on the job in the same time (as the other solutions)."
"I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."
