We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

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."

More Alteryx Pros »

"Very good data aggregation.""It is a great product for running statistical analysis.""Automation is great and this product is very organized.""You take two quarters and compare them and this tool is ideal because it gives you a lot of visibility on the before and after."

Cons
"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."

More Alteryx Cons »

"Requires more development.""It would be good if IBM added help resources to the interface.""Dimension reduction should be classified separately.""When you are not using the product, such as during the pandemic where we had worldwide lockdowns, you still have to pay for the licensing."

More IBM SPSS Modeler Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"$5,000 annually.""This tool, being an IBM product, is pretty expensive."

There are some important differences between both products. So probably, the first question I'll ask you is "for what use case are you evaluating these products?"


Of course, there are some general differences, starting with the T.C.O. and functionalities. 


Alteryx is a code-free and code-friendly platform that allows you to tackle the whole cycle of your data, starting on the consumption from any source, through a drag and drop interface, very suitable for any user (I really don't see many HHRR's people using SPSS).


Both tackle the predictive modeling very well, while Alteryx allows you to feed several additional AI&ML platforms, like H2O, DataRobot, Thoughspot, MS, Google, Amazon, and even Watson). I'm not sure if SPSS allows you to build and publish models on so many platforms.

One of the differences is that with Alteryx you can use it as an ETL and analytics tool.

Alteryx is an extremely easy and flexible data tool, flexible in terms of drag and drop toolset and also has python, R integrations if your team requires this.

It can handle over 2 billion rows of data in its in-memory engine on a notebook without requiring a server, thus it's cheaper. It has a much better community than IBM that you can get your answers pretty clear and fast if you need it.

I am not familiar with IBM SPSS Modeler, therefore, I cannot compare these two products.

Regarding Alteryx I can say the following:
- An excellent desktop tool for Data Prep and analytics.
- Feature-rich and convenient user interface.
- However, it is implemented in C#, therefore works in MS Windows environment only. Mac or Linux users can’t use it. Interface with Apache Spark implemented via special plugin (do not remember details), which results in 2-hop data transfer. It may negatively affect performance.

I am unfamiliar with the IBM SPSS Modeler but use KNIME and Alteryx for different projects. Alteryx is an excellent, very easy to get started with and get to results data cleansing, ETL, analytics, geospatial modeling, predictive analytics. I build reusable macros in Alteryx, use flexible inputs for what-if modeling, feed information to Power BI or Tableau. It seems price competitive against SPSS.
