“A fantastic ETL, data munging, data prep, and data processing tool”

OverallAlteryx can do so much more than I use it for, so I believe the only case where Alteryx wouldn't be needed is when a department/team had a full development team to prep data pre-analysis or already has a central data store fully stood up and standardized. Alteryx works extremely well with a multitude of BI and database solutions and would be a great fit for any team trying to speed up the typical daily grind of data prep and ETL so their analytics and data team can be more agile, accurate, and automated.
ProsData ingestion: Alteryx is capable of connecting with a multitude of data sources from SQL databases to cloud-hosted solutions like Salesforce, Tableau, or Google Analytics. Also supports OleDB & ODBC connections. Dynamic data munging: Alteryx has a great variety of processing tools to clean and prep data including: dedupe, formulas, joins, union, sort... Performing these functions really quickly on even moderately equipped laptops or desktops. It's dynamic in that it can easily handle changes in data by allowing extra columns to flow through. Macros: have a process that you are consistently running in separate workflows? Build a MACRO, be it a batch or iterative, Alteryx can do it. I've built 40-50 macros and use at least 4+ in every workflow I design so data is handled the same way in every workflow for consistency and cutting down on copy/pastes.
ConsI've had issues with the scheduler tool getting frozen or stuck in previous versions. For about the last 2-3 months the latest software version has been much more reliable. Previously I had to restart the Alteryx service on my machine at least once a week, which meant my workflows weren't running while the service had been stuck and data wasn't moving. Some of the connectors, like the Tableau Online connector, should become supported by Alteryx. The online community is fantastic and has created a ton of useful macros and it would be great if Alteryx would adopt, support, and enhance some of the most widely used and useful.

“Easy, Pricy but Worth it”

OverallI'm a Technology Consultant, using ALteryx for ETL projects where analyse the data is a critical job and the size of the data, wouldn't allow me to use tools like excel . Alteryx it has been a great tool for all my jobs, let in me stand out with fast and quality solution.
ProsThe most i like is the Easy drag and drop function that the application has. The design and how visual it is to keep the Information flow, makes Alteryx a great app for data analysis, formatting and design. Built in tool like time Formaters, filters and Joins facilitate the work of doing data cleansing and data prepping for any ETL job. Another great area is how flexible it is input and output formats. It lets you join CSV files with XLS or even TXT.
ConsThe least I like is the price and the latency when loading the data. Because is a strong and powerful Tool, it is a bit pricey in one hand, is not a tool for one day job, is more for enterprise and daily jobs. When loading the data, depending where is located the document, it will take longer than usual.

“Go With The Flow - Automation using Alteryx Designer”

OverallAs an analyst in the Finance dept of a large financial institution, my work is largely cyclical in nature. I need to produce the same output on a monthly basis and a lot of my processes require several manual steps which can take hours. With Alteryx Designer, I have been able to convert many of these processes to automated workflows which can achieve the same results in literally seconds. With the power of automation, I have more time for analyzing results instead of spending a great deal of time generating reports.
ProsAlteryx Designer is a very intuitive way to map out a process in a step by step visual workflow which can be then executed with the click of a button. Tedious manual tasks can be automated with ease. Traditionally, programming required drawing out ones algorithm in a flowchart and then having to translate that into computer code. With Alteryx, the flowchart itself is the code. It features a vast array of icons called tools, each of which has a specific function such as importing data, filtering based on criteria, summarizing, merging information and so forth. You simply drag and drop each tool into the work area for each step in your process and then click the play button. It's like having a robot to whom you can describe your work and then have it do it for you in a fraction of the time.
ConsAlteryx Designer is excellent for data mining/wrangling for eventual output to be used for reporting but it's internal report generation and presentation tools are not as robust as others when it comes to publishing a polished presentation. I prefer to use Designer to produce my final data result set and export to Excel where I can then take advantage of Microsoft Office formatting and presentation options.

“So many uses!”

OverallAlteryx has been great! It solved our business need plus so much more. The number of users in my company has been expanding since we first started using it.
ProsYou can do so much with Alteryx! We acquired the software for one specific project but I find myself using it for so many other things, from day to day data work to other large projects. It has great features like fuzzy matching, data normalization, and join capabilities. It is great for working with large data sets that can't be easily managed in excel or access and for allowing multiple data sources to interact with each other.
ConsThere is a bit of a learning curve. However, once you understand how it all works its easy. Also there are so many tools and more than one way to achieve the same thing. It can be hard to know how to approach new projects.

“Daily user”

OverallOverall, am a happy user, ALteryx saved time and effort on daily basis and opened many horizons for me to clean he data in a timely manner. If you work in a dynamic environment where quick steps in data cleaning and wranglning are required in no time then ALteryx is your first option.
ProsNot so steep learning curve, Alteryx is built around the human common sense. The fact that you can (View/Process) the data as a branch at any stage of the processing is really useful, and the way the software designed allows you to go backward and see what happened.
ConsThe limitation of some tools and the high barrier to developing new functionality.

“We started using Alteryx in a pilot project in November 2017, which resulted in immediate success”

OverallMassive time saving on Analytical function as well as improvement in accuracy with data from disparate data sources
ProsEase of implementation, fantastic product support. Great assistance from Altyrex - committed resources at no cost to help implement, train etc. A lot of willingness to help us 'prove' the business case - i.e. make a success of the pilot project. Workshops ran in business helped getting a number of other business functions exposed and on board in support of the product. Willingness to negotiate on price as well as providing trial licences to other functions for a period of time to enable usage uptake. Willingness to understand business problem assisted greatly in successful deployment. Ease of deployment in 'non-analytics' environment was a big enabler. What is great is that it is process flow based and no extensive coding experience is required. Now busy with further business case projects in other parts of the business.
ConsThe cost initially seems exorbitant - especially as there are alternatives such as KNIME & Rapid Miner. Value delivered however overcame this barrier.

“Quick and easy way to move from data exploration and blending to analysis and insight”

OverallThis software, especially the predictive analytics piece, gave me new insight into my data. I saved time during the process of merging and cleansing data that could then be put to better use exploring, analyzing, and making decisions with the data. The work that previously required collaboration between several people to complete could be done by one person in a fraction of the time, which benefited everyone.
ProsAlteryx has the full package starting with excellent customer service and continuing with an straightforward drag-and-drop interface. An abundance of available nodes make it simple to pull in data from many different sources, merge, union, filter, sort, and even perform statistical or predictive analysis on your data, and then disseminate it to the proper stakeholders. The visual nature of the product makes it accessible, even for beginners with no programming background, so they can start building queries right away. What I love most is how it makes the part of my job that used to be the most tedious--data prep and cleansing--fast and effortless and even fun. There are also many online training videos and community group to help build your knowledge of the product and its full range of capabilities.
ConsAlteryx may be better suited to fields other than education; however, I can still find good use cases for it in my job.

“Alteryx is all you need to advance BI”

OverallI can't really discuss use cases due to proprietary information, but let me tell you- Alteryx elevates your entire organization and is a extremely versatile product to add to an analysts toolkit.
ProsAlteryx is an incredibly easy to use tool that creates and automates data workflows with a click and drag toolbox. Passed R, Python and JSON code through the workflow so you can get technical tasks done without a developer.
ConsAlteryx support could be a bit better in terms of follow up with very specific and technical questions. However, the community is a great resource to get answers to high level questions!

“A good tool for automating complicated analytics pipelines”

OverallAlteryx is a good tool and well fits in our need of clinical data management and analytics pipeline optimization. There are rooms for improvement in terms of stability in desktop application.
ProsAlteryx is a great tool when need of integrating multiple or complicated analytics pipelines in one place and manage them in a systematics manner. It provides a variety of data connections to common relational database product and web resources. It also provides plugins to add other product such as Tableau, etc.
ConsThe desktop application used to crash (not responding) in case of loading large sized data. It also gets very slow when moving or drag-dropping objects in the authoring environment.

“Makes data prep and predictive analysis a breeze”

OverallWe used to spend a lot of time in Excel and SQL queries trying to get the data right for reporting, plus if there was anything more complex involved such as forecasting or predictive model building to do, we'd have to find an R expert which really slows the process down. Alteryx changed all that and building workflows that preps the data and spits out a clean dataset or report complete with forecasts etc. can all be done without coding and in a visual way that anyone can understand and see what's been done and where leading to the greater confidence the data is right.
ProsEasy to use interface, extremely flexible for data analysis tasks, self-documenting, very fast on large data sets
ConsAutomating workflow is an additional cost

“Alteryx is the most frequently used software at my office.”

ProsThe inputs are easy to use, the tools are easily understood and well described in the help files and they easily connect with one another. Writing neat output files is made easy regardless of file type. The ability to use R within the module has made a lot of analyses much easier.
ConsThe transition to newer versions of Alteryx is much too complicated when you have to skip a few of the in-between versions, which my company often does.
Recommendations to other buyersIf you are looking for a clear way to visualize the steps required to carry out the steps in your analysis, if you want to be able to incorporate spatial files into the same process as you want to use R, or if you just want an easy to use program that allows a lot of flexibility with the data, this is the best out there.

“Alteryx simplifies and Enhances Data Preparation”

OverallI've loved working with Alteryx. After just 4 months of using the software, I have managed to automate over 20 daily or weekly processes that used to take all my time. I now have more time to create meaningful reports that can help management make the decisions that will keep our company moving forward.
ProsAlteryx allows you to walk through your data preparation step by step to ensure that everything is following the exact process of orders that you want.
ConsOccasionally, Alteryx will stop processing a workflow because of a minor error. Frequently, that minor error has a handful of different solutions, forcing you to try each solution one by one. After some experience you learn what things to look for, but when just starting out, it's a nuisance.

“One tool for most of your data management and preparation needs”

ProsI have been using Alteryx for past few months and it has made my life so easy when it comes to handling multiple files. You can combine multiple excel files, CSVs, any other files, 100s of MBs in size, and within minutes it carries out the entire ETL process. 1. Ease of use - simple drag and drop 2. Input and outputs - multiple file formats are supported 3. Very easily handle GBs of data
Cons1. A few visualization capabilities can be added to make it more comprehensive tool 2. You have to run the entire workflow again, even if you have made a slight change - having the functionality to run just a piece or small part of the entire workflow will save much more time

“Saves me hours a week and allows me to think critically more often!”

ProsI love how diverse the product is. I can do a simple data pull to a demographic report to doing regression analysis for a complex model.
ConsThe only small complaint I have is that some of the error messages themselves are cryptic and convoluted.
Recommendations to other buyersIf you have a need for automation, data compilation and data reporting, this is a very diverse tool that can revolutionize your efficiency and give your analysts more time to think critically rather than be bogged down by menial tasks.

“Alteryx”

OverallI like Alteryx as a data mulipulation tool but it's also very diffult to learn.
ProsWith Alteryx, you're creating a workflow to alter the data, rather than altering the data directly. Because you're creating the workflow, each of the steps are easily auditable and you can swap out the source files when it changes. This is a huge bonus and time saver as data will tend to change.
ConsAlteryx has a huge learning curve. It's hard to get started without some sort of live tutorial from someone that has been using it for a long time.

“The future of ETL is here. No coding needed”

OverallThe possibilities are endless and the future is bright
ProsThe ease of use to prep, blend, transform, wrangle, etc is awesome. The learning curve is not that challenging. This is the future of development. There are a lot of connectors inherently built in.
ConsSome of the connectors can be finicky. Support can be a little slow to respond

“Detail Oriented Results and Reporting”

ProsWe utilize these reports in order to track down to really granular levels within our organization. It is so helpful to narrow down what you need or to see wide ranges.
ConsIt would be helpful to generate more graphics. Not impossible but a little more difficult.

“I use it daily at my job”

ProsIt is easy to use by drag and drop. All different functions can be used to prepare data. Also can analyse data in simple mathmatics.

“Alteryx is a great software! So many uses, and really easy to learn.”

ProsI like how many different ways I can get data into Alteryx, and all the easy manipulation that you can do both with and without SQL coding experience. It is very easy to use, and easy to learn on your own. They also have great customer support, and training videos.
ConsI would like to see the Period Table of Alteryx with more detail, or a decision tree on inputs and outputs and uses to help figure out the best tools to use.

“This is a great data analysis and prediction software.”

ProsI love the easy interface and the various options for different data analysis and prediction techniques. The flexibility is top-notch.

“Prep like a pro”

ProsThe software allows data prep options for just about any scenario imaginable. If you need to omit rows, add columns, The layout involves a flowchart and the user assigns cleanup steps based on a flowchart scheme he so desires. The user with a SQL background will have a better understanding and capabilities of the back-end processes.
ConsDoes require a bit of practice to get used to the layout and customizable features. Would recommend taking an online or in person course. There is a learning curve, especially for individuals like myself without a data background.

“Automating and Business Intelligence Platform”

“Pretty Intuitive to use”

ProsI think once you get the hang of it and learning all the tools that are available, its not that bad to use. I think for people who have less SQL/software engineering skills who want to do ETL, this is a great product. Someone who has a strong software engineering and database background it is hard for us to let go of some of our habits.
Conschaining/scheduling workflows is not built in there needs to be more support for non MS SQL Server people including oracle, postgres, and redshift.

“Powerful tool - Excel but with a better data capacity”

Pros1. Works with large size data - I have used 10GB files as well! 2. Easy to clean and modify data - moreover, gives you option to save workflow so that you don't have to repeat the same steps again and again
Cons1. Whenever I run alteryx flow, numbers become string when I open them in excel. So everytime I have to remember to add one more step to change them back to numeric which is a little cumbersome 2. A few features are difficult to understand - help topics could have been more elaborate

“Tool for automating excel workflows”

OverallIt was nice, I have been automating excel user tools with it
ProsIt provides a no. of tools for data blending, data sorting, data extraction , generating reports and emailing them. Macros in it are easier to use. User Interface is easy to understand.
ConsNothing much I dislike, the only thing I disliked is that we have to use visual tool to view data every time, that slows the running time of the workflow.

ProsThis tool's ease of use allows our non-analytical teammates to easily do basic data analysis by themselves, freeing up our analytics team for more technical questions

“Alteryx Review”

OverallI think that Alteryx is awesome!! It has an easy layout - drag and drop. There are okay trainings through their website. I think that is where they could improve. Their customer service is AMAZING. There is an on-call chat service. They will discuss your issue with you and even do a screen-share and phone call if you need the help. I would recommend Alteryx to others who need to do data prep and predictive/advanced analytics.

“Alteryx”

OverallOverall, I enjoy using Alteryx and love the futurist type look it has with it's icons.
ProsI love the icons. I am very visual and enjoy knowing what I am doing by simply looking at the icons. This software can be as technical and as user friendly as you make it. The drag and drop of request allows users to play around with the files, data and request without being afraid of braking a formula like in Excel.
ConsI don't like whenever I get a "null" error and it does not allow me to correct it. I manipulate the data, remove filters and the null remains visible. Perhaps having a pop up to show where the error lies in your work.

“Used in Data Analytics”

OverallAlteryx has allowed for faster processing of large data sets, and has helped to mitigate issues that arise during the data preparation process.
ProsThis software greatly simplifies the process of dealing with large data sets, taking tasks that previously might require knowledge of SQL, Hadoop, and other database items, and allowing you to do it all in an intuitive manner within the Alteryx package.
ConsSoftware sometimes runs slowly - mostly due to the size of the data sets, but also potentially due to insufficient optimizations for lower level calculations. Also expensive compared to competitors.

ProsAlteryx seems to have ever-expanding capabilities.
ConsSome of the error messages can be quite vague and help very little in troubleshooting.

“Daily use, from quick data manipulation to full-blown wizards”

ProsThe best thing about this product is its ease of use! It's so easy to pick up, and so versatile that anyone can benefit from it.
ConsSome of the formatting and rendering can be tedious/painful, but there is rarely anything that can't be accomplished in some way/shape/form.
Recommendations to other buyersDon't let it overwhelm you. It can seem overwhelming at times, with so many tools and different things to do, but typically the best answer is the simplest one.
