We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"My organization pays for it, and I do not look into the financial aspect of the licensing, but I know it is pretty expensive."
"In order to have designers, and, if you want to collaborate, you have to buy a server. If the designer is $5,000, and if you want a server, you have to pay $80,000."
"The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive."
"There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else."
"Opt for the three year subscription. It is 20% less than the yearly one."
"The pricing is $5000 per year per production license."
"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."
