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."
"It's user-friendly, also the MTDI cube is a very good approach, as it helps you to use the pre-format instead of using the standard objects from the schema of MicroStrategy."
"This solution is the most scalable BI platform in the world."
"The solution has excellent features available on mobile."
"The technical support is quite good."
"I haven't come across any bugs."
"The dashboard features and functionalities that come through the MicroStrategy Suite are the most valuable. It can be used by end users with minimum knowledge of the product. They can run a report or create a dashboard on their phones, which is kind of cool."
"It is very stable."
"The product is very mature. It's quite robust and an excellent enterprise-level solution."
"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."
"In the developer, there are things that you able to do in a document or a report that you are not able to do in the Dossier."
"They need to do a better job In its ability to allow end users to produce their own reports, metrics, and self-service business intelligence."
"The solution lacks good visualization. They should work on the user interface to make it more slick and modern."
"The solution's reports are not very flexible."
"They should provide more tutorials and include some project files."
"It crashes multiple times for even small changes that I make on the fly in the dashboard. After doing all the necessary changes, the MicroStrategy desktop or even the web version kicks the users out, and all the changes are lost. This functionality is buggy in MicroStrategy. It is hard to keep track of all the changes that I have done before. I don't want to make copies of each change that I have made because I would end up creating a hundred dashboards. It is not feasible in a real environment. I haven't worked on integrating MicroStrategy with the cloud. I am not sure how it behaves in the cloud, but I have heard from a few of my friends that there are some hiccups when you kind of sync to the cloud through MicroStrategy."
"They should give proper industry-based tutorials so that one can learn it easily and implement it based on the requirements. They should give more MMP files so that we can import a whole project altogether and learn from that project."
"The learning curve is quite steep."
"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."
"We have a license with packages, and there are additional costs for extra components."
"We have one of the best pricing available, but we can't disclose that information."
"The pricing is fair."
"They can improve its licensing. It is a bit expensive as compared to Microsoft and other tools."
"They offer yearly as well as perpetual licenses."
"It is expensive. We would like to extend it to many users, but we are currently restricting that because the cost is a constraint. If we are given a chance, we would love to expand it."
