Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"This solution allows for simplified working with large datasets.""In Daman, I had used the data module, where you can join the table and take whatever data we require for our work. You join tables and create columns as you wish, then analyze data in various ways depending on what the problem is. We used it to detect fraud, abnormalities, anomalies, abnormal trends, etc. It's also good for exporting and importing tables.""Statistical functionality and basic database interaction can become very straightforward for business users that don't have a background in SQL and data analysis.""The Query Builder is very valuable.""Areas where SAS EG does a better job than regular SAS are in the realm of importing and exporting data. For instance, exporting a SAS data set in Unix to an Excel spreadsheet on a PC is a simple task compared to doing the same task with Base SAS.""The product has a drag-and-drop feature that is excellent for business users and that makes it easy-to-use."

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."

"I would like to see better Charting in this solution.""Now that I have experience with Tableau, I think the visualization part of SAS EG could be more user friendly and easier to use. Tableau is very easy to use. It's just does a lot of work by itself, including color schemes. I think that could be incorporated easily into SAS EG, which would make it a much better product. Then you would not need Tableau.""I would like to see integration with schedulers when run from hosting environments such as Citrix.""For some of the advanced functions, you need to learn some SAS code to get what you want.""I had difficulty with the diagrammatic flow chart style representation of projects. When projects got too large and complex (which was basically every project, except the most trivial). There just wasn't enough real estate to display the flow chart and dependencies without a lot of scrolling, even when a flow was down to minimum tasks. My recourse was making the flow less "atomic". E.g., rather than use the various subset, etc., tasks as program nodes to display the details, I would write chunks of code that did a few things and use them as SAS program nodes.""The product is missing a visualization component so we have to use a separate tool for visualization.""Machine learning is not utilized and that could enhance the product."

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."
