Cons
The server is too expensive for what you get and it really a designer desktop on a server.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.

I think that this solution should be more compatible with other software, including open-source solutions.Technical support could be improved because they take too long to answer our queries.

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).‚ÄčIt can be a bit pricey, especially after the first year.

If SAS were more flexible in terms of licensing then that would be good, because it costs more than other solutions.
