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

Pros
The ease-of-use allows non-technical business users to directly create their own solutions without the use of additional development resources.This is a drag-and-drop tool which is easy-to-use and yet can be customized by creating your own components.The solution offers excellent predicting power. The accuracy and confidence have been great.The product is very stable and super fast, five-star. It's significantly more stable than it's nearest competitor.Alteryx is so advanced. It's just drag and drop.Shortens the time required to start analyzing data and looking for insights, minimizing the tasks that do not add value to the business and maximizing the analysis phase.Alteryx speeds up the time to obtain business answers/insights on data.It is one of the most complete and great customer service that I experienced with a software company/ecosystem.

This solution has allowed us to become a top-class competitor among other consulting companies.It is a reliable solution for our needs.The implementation was fairly straightforward.The most valuable features are ad hoc reporting and the ability to create dashboards.The whole repository side of things is beneficial because you develop it once, and you can use it anywhere, in the Enterprise grade.It scales well. It used to have only a max of four I-servers, but I think recently, somewhere in version 10, they doubled that, so you can have eight I-servers now.Cube performance and easy integration with third-party tools/products, are valuable features.​Mobile brings reports/dashboards closer to the business user.

Cons
There is currently no cloud solution and this would be valuable for many clients.The GUI interface functions but it could stand to be updated to a more modern look and feel.The solution could work on the BI side of the tool to make it a bit better.The only area where the product lags is documentation and videos on the analytical app and the batch macro.It would be great if Alteryx could take third party tools and incorporate them.Even when it already includes some AI models, this area could be improved.It would be great to create the final users' visualization within Alteryx.The event handling, such that the file system watcher, is in need of improvement.

I would like to see a single standalone application to control everything from the administration perspective, and also to develop new applications.This solution is missing enhanced features in the dashboards.The product could be improved by adding additional visualization.Another feature to consider in the future would be adding some additional offline capabilities without using desktops.If you compare it with Power BI with the DAX language, it would be great to put that into MicroStrategy.I don't think that they will, but I'd like to see parallel processing, scalable parallel processing.Data writeback, and on-the-fly predictive analysis results from R and Python could be improved.With Cube partition (v10.1 and above) scalability has not been an issue, but the Cube publish time, and temporary space consumption while the Cube is being published, has almost doubled during implementation of Cube partition.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We have a yearly cost that we pay for the licensing. We do not pay any costs in addition to the licensing fees.The pricing is $5000 per year per production license.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).​It can be a bit pricey, especially after the first year.

The licensing is a bit high per user.Pricing, in general, is high. With Power BI, you get mobile with the license, whereas with MicroStrategy, you have to purchase mobile for extra.
