BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a consulting firm and we provide software solutions and data solutions as well as consulting purposes for business-to-business use, with Alteryx being one of those software options.

What is your position?

I am a senior technical consultant.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was a business challenge your company was facing that initiated the need for this platform?

One of our case studies has been where we recommended Alteryx to provide geocoding services for our clients, along with reporting and site selection options.

SOLUTION

How does your company implement this platform or software?

It has not been implemented yet. We are still in the testing phase. We are looking to work with the client to bring their data into the Alteryx system and to develop models, such as a system with identifying locations that would best fit new site locations for their customers who are building franchise opportunities with this client.

We are using their spatial analytics capabilities. Their data is coming from one of their enterprise database solutions. They are exporting it out to dBase and CSV [comma separated values] format so that we can import the data directly into Alteryx. In the future, we are looking to do a direct integration between Alteryx and those systems; however, their security means that is not an option at this point in time.

Was your company considering other platforms? Why this platform?

There is another solution that has been implemented already. That solution is called AnySite. The customer is currently using the AnySite platform, but we have recommended that they move away from AnySite and build with Alteryx because Alteryx has a much more powerful processing capability and is a lot quicker in processing large amounts of data. I would say that the cost is more effective as well. It also provides much more detailed statistical analysis. AnySite platform does not do that, it has its own statistical analysis features built into the product where those things are static, and the customer has no ability to make any changes to them. However, with Alteryx the client can make changes.

What is the status of this engagement?

The work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any success, metrics, or overall results of your implementation of this platform?

Time savings are tremendous when using the Alteryx platform. Cost savings are also tremendous, especially with the geocoding platform that is embedded within Alteryx. The only downside is the fact that Alteryx does not have a very powerful mapping tool. It has maps, but the maps are basically static, and they cannot be used for mapping applications.

Were there any software features or tools that really impressed you?

We recommend Alteryx because the geocoding actually uses TomTom as its engine, so that is a plus. Also, when comparing the cost of other providers, the cost for Alteryx geocoding is much more competitive and advantageous than other vendor geocoding software. The analytics capabilities are very keen and it processes the data much more quickly. That is one thing that really stands out because we have other applications that we use for different processes and we have used those in the past. We have actually switched some of our current applications to test them with Alteryx, and Alteryx outperforms them 10 to one.

Looking back, are there any areas of the software upon which you feel could be added or improved?

Other than the mapping capabilities, there is nothing that I can think of at the moment. I'd say that the geocoding is great and the price for it is great, but user interface leaves a little to be desired. Then again, for what you are getting for the price, maybe it is good after all.

Have you had to interact with the platform's support team or reference their support resources?

I would say the interaction is good. However, the downside is that you cannot always reach support. The good thing is, I would say they are able to resolve about 80 percent of the issues. The other 20 percent are just sort of left out there. Basically speaking, it is pretty good. It is not excellent, but it is good.

We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the best. How would you rate them for functionality of the features available?

Five.

For someone who has experience with other similar types of software, how would you rate the ease of use compared to other technologies?

Two.

For support, as in responsiveness of the team or helpfulness of the resources available?

Three and a half.

For overall satisfaction with the platform?

Four.

How likely are you to recommend Alteryx to a friend or colleague, out of five?

Five.

BACKGROUND

Can you please provide a brief description of your company and the role that you play there?

My company is called Marquee Crew. I founded it this year to provide professional services in data blending and advanced analytics, primarily through the use of Alteryx. I am the founder of the company.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was a business challenge your company was facing that incited the need for this platform?

I have a major manufacturer here in Michigan that I met with to discuss some of their logistic planning needs. They're an SAP shop, and they were drawing their data out from their data warehouse and into Access databases, where they were massaging that data and performing their analytics against that data in Excel.

SOLUTION

How does your company implement this platform or software?

In the use case that I worked on with them as a prospect, they had spent more than a month in development of a process that required a senior-level person to execute procedures, and it took roughly three-to-five business days to be able to create their data for analysis. It was highly time-consuming to the person that was actually doing the work, it's vulnerable to errors, and it's not easily transferrable from one person to another. This is the question they wanted to answer with Alteryx: is there something that could make this a repeatable process and, hopefully, make it go faster?

The source of the data was SAP, and they were previously using Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel. The data needed a lot of touching – copy from one place, create a pivot table, and move the data through the pipe manually.

Was your company considering other platforms? Why this platform?

Another platform they thought about using was SAS Enterprise Miner, but they didn't have the skill set to be able to do that. The infrastructure around the company had suggested that as a potential solution, but the group that was part of this use study saw how intuitive Alteryx was and how it could easily adapt to the problem at hand.

On an annual or monthly basis, how much does your company spend to utilize the platform?

A desktop license is $3,995. If a company were to deploy modules across departments, and have many users feeding off the data and consuming analytics that were created in Alteryx, then they might decide to go for a server version. That version is $45,000, plus there would be some additional licenses for designers, for the people who are creating the modules for others to consume from. To be able to use Alteryx for these solutions, it's very affordable to get one or two people up and running and then to build out the business case to justify the growth of Alteryx.

RESULTS

Can you share any success, metrics, or overall results of your implementation of this platform?

For the use case development, I sat down with the person who constructed the original jobs and, in one day, we went further than he had been able to go in one month. In that one day, we created something that solved the problem, ran for a runtime of seven minutes instead of three to five days, and actually produced more data and higher quality input for the analysis process. Before using Alteryx, if he ran into a record that had a reference for integrity issue, or had any type of an error, he didn't just sum the total quantities up together, he put those into a queue for research later.

He was only able to analyze approximately 80 percent of the available data. In our process together, we put together rules to be able to fix units of measure and other issues in the data, so that almost 100 percent of the data was available for transportation into the analytics.

In the 10 years that I've been using Alteryx, these are the types of stories that come out. This is not an unusual case. Generally, with Alteryx, you're taking processes that were taking hours or days to run, and you're processing them in minutes. At a major marketing service provider not using Alteryx, it would take hours to days to be able to create geographic files that explain to a customer what the three closest stores are, for example. With Alteryx, you can answer those questions in seconds to minutes, depending on how many people you're using.

A marketing service provider had between 100 million and 200 million consumers in their database, and they are able to not only run faster but, now, instead of limiting the stores to three or five, the database could handle up to a dozen store choices. You could take route differences in time, to ask about the drive time distance, instead of geographic distance.

The manufacturer that I spoke to in the first use case gave me another problem, which was being able to audit records that are going through foreign trade, and their current goal is to be able to audit 15 percent of the data. We demonstrated in another use case how that could be 100 percent of the data being virtually audited as opposed to needing to have eyes on each of the audits.

This hasn't been implemented yet, but it can be an automated read of the records that are going to customs. This would enable them to verify those records, and be able to check prices on them for accuracy. If something was being shipped at the wrong rate, it would find errors and reconcile them, and correct the problem before customs and duties were paid.

FEATURES

Were there any software features or tools that really impressed you?  

I think the first one is data blending. Some tools have the ability to do things like match on a hard key. If the shipping IDs between two records are identical, they can match these easily. Alteryx provides the ability to be able to match with multiple keys, it has the ability to have fuzzy matches. If you have John Smith at 123 Main Street, and John Smythe at 231 Main Road or Main Street, you wouldn't necessarily be able to use other tools to be able to match those records. Alteryx does have that capability.

Alteryx can access data from a variety of sources. It can work with flat-files like CSV or Excel as well as Databases or even cloud data. Users can also take in data through APIs [application programming interfaces] and off the web. Alteryx can provide flexibility in the data blending, and it can be used not only by IT [information technology] professionals, but by business analysts as well. Alteryx has the same capabilities of some very advanced IT tools.

The second feature is the advanced analytics tool. Alteryx has the native ability to consume analytics that are built in the language of R. R is the language that statistics are being taught with. You can hire interns and first-time job seekers that have a background in R, and they can be put to use in a business practical problem-solving mode with Alteryx.

Also, within Alteryx, you don't need to know how to code in R to use many of these functions like linear regression models, logistic regression models, and market basket analysis. Those have all been packaged into modules within Alteryx that you can call and be able to run those analyses. These tools within the R Toolbox are all there from beginning blending through advanced analytics. It's all there, one single tool to solve all the problems.

Looking back, are there any areas of the software upon which you feel could be added or improved?

They've just recently started connecting into in-database processing. In-database processing allows Alteryx users to be able to run queries, whether it's in Hadoop, Teradata, or Oracle, you can run those processes in the database. This is something that Alteryx has just begun doing. That's where I'd like to see more support built out. You can connect with Spark, but it's not quite fully matured. The tools can be made simpler. I'm hoping that does happen.

I'm hoping that does happen.

Have you had to interact with the platform's support team or reference their support resources?

I've used Alteryx support many times myself. When I come into an area that I haven't used recently or that I struggle with, I either go to the Alteryx community website, ask questions there, and the users and the user community are very quick to answer, or I call up the toll-free number to get Alteryx support and get a ticket opened. Generally, I'm helped in minutes to hours. They're very responsive. If I have a development question, I have a little bit more patience. If I have a production issue, I let them know it's a production emergency, and they're giving me status updates or getting me fixes very quickly.

OVERVIEW

We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the best. What would you give the software for functionality of the features available?

BACKGROUND

Can you provide a brief description of your company and the role that you play there?

We are Tableau and Alteryx partners, so we resell both Tableau and Alteryx and provide consultancy services to our clients. My role has recently changed. I was on the consultancy team, and I've recently become an account manager. I provide support to our key clients and help them with any day-to-day problems as well as booking in services.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge your company was facing that initiated the need for this platform?

I can talk in very general terms about our clients because most that approach us for Alteryx tend to come down the same route, and that's because it's generally people who already have Tableau. They're working with data visualization, and they've reached a point where they need to go beyond what Tableau can offer in terms of data preparation. What tends to happen is that the users start using tools like Excel and Access, and their processes start taking a long time. I've had clients who were building processes through Excel and Access that are taking two weeks to build every time something needs to be redone.

SOLUTION

How does your company implement this platform or software?

I have one particular example recently where the client came to us and said, "I'm having problems with my Excel process. It takes two weeks to build end to end." We gave him a 14-day Alteryx trial. Within the first week, he built a new process, and turned it into a less than five-minute run. He built that just referring to help files and tutorials within the application, with a little bit of assistance coming from our support desk. He went to his boss and said, "I'd like a copy of Alteryx because they gave us only two weeks." That's now implemented, and he saves himself two weeks every month running that. That's just one small use case of what he's able to do with the software.

There are many people building out these processes, and having to work with Excel and Access, and these long, horrible processes that you can just turn into a workflow in Alteryx, and press play, and it does it all in itself. Alteryx is great for that. It's fantastic for providing a workflow that documents processes and runs them for you.

Was your company considering other platforms? Why this platform?

People tend to come from both ends. They're either coming from a very low-skill background or low availability of tools. All they've got on the desktop is something like Excel and Access, and that's all they've been given. On the other side of the spectrum, we're also getting teams who were working with integration services in SQL or directly with SQL code. They are spending a lot of money, having to get specialist consultancy or they're really struggling to maintain and work with that code.

Alteryx offers the ability to work with a product that doesn't require any coding. It's very flexible. It allows you to work as you think. You're building out the problem and trying to solve it, you then get to a point and test it. You're working in an agile way where you amend work. Keep going around that cycle until the point where you've built something you're happy with. No coding is necessary. It's self-documented, so you've got a nice workflow that you can easily pass to colleagues.

It means that people are able to work in a very self-contained way without needing to go to professional colleagues or hire external consultants. They can build it all themselves, and then update it, maintain it, and keep adding to it without the need to go back to a codebase.

The other useful side that we've seen is people say it replaces about three or four different tools across their workflow. Alteryx works with spatial data, it works with predictive, and it does data preparation. Instead of having to use MapInfo or ArcGis for spatial stuff, or they're working perhaps with SAS from a predictive standpoint, Alteryx is bringing everything together into one platform umbrella, with the same drag and drop. This means that people can just work with whatever problem they have in the same way, and they're not having to go out to four different applications or four different teams to get their job done.

RESULTS

Can you share any success, metrics, or overall results of your implementation of this platform?

Regarding time saved working with Alteryx, often we have clients talking about weekly processes, with weeks and days turning into seconds and minutes. It's also about empowering them to do things that they weren't able to do in the past, or that they were having to send to external people. I can't provide any particular figures but, on average, this is what people say about their experience with Alteryx.

FEATURES

Were there any software features or tools that really impressed you?  

Alteryx has grown from the spatial background. Most people have spatial data, they just don't know how to work with it. Everyone's got customers based around the country. Bringing those spatial points in, looking at them in a completely different light, using a tool, which is really easy to do, that's a strong addition when using Alteryx. Most tools do data preparation, and it's difficult to differentiate on that level, while the spatial adds a whole new capacity that none of the other tools have. I have not seen that in another tool, personally.

Looking back, are there any areas of the software that you feel could be added or improved upon?

I'd like to see Alteryx expand its predictive capacity for larger environments. While Alteryx uses an open source environment at the moment, and connects to a few database technologies to do in-database predictions, that's something that I'm really keen to see grow because it will enable the predictive side to take off. Currently, there are limitations on how much data you can run. I know the team at Alteryx is definitely focused on adding more and more in-database connectors.

Have you had to interact with the platform's support team or reference their support resources?

We provide support for our clients, so when I have any questions that we can't answer – and I've used Alteryx for a number of years, so I'm quite experienced and that doesn't happen very often – they're very fast, and I've heard nothing but good things said about the Alteryx support team. They will always come back straight away, they've always got someone who can answer questions.

One of the weak points in what Alteryx offered was the lack of a quality online support community, but that's changed recently. You can now go online, throw a support question onto their community, and you'll get someone coming back from the wider Alteryx community in just a few hours. I've seen real benefits from that, even answering some of the questions I've got.

OVERVIEW

We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the best. What would you give the software for functionality of the features available?

Five. There are more than 200 tools in Alteryx, and often I use it as a glue to do almost anything and call things out. I guess the downside is that to know all those tools is very broad, but I'm never lacking when I need something that does what I need.

What would you give the software for ease of use or ease of implementation into your business?

Four. Most software needs coding. Compared to something like Tableau, it's not quite there in terms of ease of use. Compared to everything else, in terms of coding and data prep, I'd give it a four for ease of use.

For support, as in responsiveness of the team or helpfulness of the resources available?

Four and a half.

For overall satisfaction with the platform?

Five. I rave about it constantly. I absolutely love it.

How likely are you to recommend the software to a colleague or similar business?

Five. It's something I do every day. I would have no hesitation in doing it.

BACKGROUND

Can you please provide a brief description of your company and the role that you play there?

I am the president of CHAMPS Analytics. We are a division of a larger entity called CHAMPS Software. CHAMPS Analytics has been around since 2006. Our company focuses on providing analytics solutions to our customers. We focus in a couple of different verticals, including nuclear power, call centers, and business process outsourcers. Then, we've got some experience with health care analytics as well as law enforcement, and utilities. We've been partners with Qlik the entire time, and we have partnered with Alteryx since earlier this year.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge your company was facing that incited the need for this platform?

One of our customers is a consumer products company, and they are using Alteryx to help them with their demand forecasting. In essence, they have several years' worth of data. A lot of their products are sold during the holiday season, so they want to do a better job of predicting how many units of different types they should make based on historical information. For example, suppose they know in the Northeast they sell a lot more of product X than they do product Y in the Southeast and, every now and then, they run into situations where they don't have enough products on the shelves. They want to avoid that as much as possible.

SOLUTION

How does your company implement this platform or software?

They're also using Alteryx to ask the question, "Based on weather, if we know we're going to have bad weather, how does that impact sales?" They're trying to blend weather-related data, and they're also blending their sales related data using Alteryx to try to help predict what the best number of units they should be producing in their manufacturing operations in China, so they can sell it through Wal-Mart and all the big-box retailers.

Was your company considering other platforms? Why this platform?

They were looking at IBM Watson, but they just don't want to spend millions of dollars. They wanted to go ahead and get their data blended first, which Watson doesn't necessarily do. By the way, they're already a customer of Qlik. The reason they like Alteryx is because they really like Qlik, and they know that what Qlik does, Alteryx doesn't do very well, and then what Alteryx does, Click doesn't do at all. Qlik can do data blending, because it has a full-blown ETL [extract, transform, load] tool inside of it, but Alteryx makes it a lot easier for business analysts – not necessarily IT [information technology] people – to connect directly to their data sources to prep it, and then at the same time do all the advanced analytics as well.

Any of our large customers that have Qlik through the visualization, we think it's very symbiotic for them to also have a relationship with Alteryx because Qlik will do all the wonderful visualizations and all the user experience, along with the ability to interact and work with your data. You have to prep the data first, and Alteryx makes prepping the data a lot easier. Once you've got all the data prepped, then you can leverage and analyze it in Qlik.

If you want to do advanced analytics with predictive and geospatial analytics, Qlik can't do any of that really well. That's where you can go to Alteryx, take all this data, and plot it on a map. You can go ahead and run it through R models so that we can go ahead and predict how much more we need to make, or predict which customers are going to turn, predict how much we should be generating based on previous sales, and so on.

On an annual or monthly basis, how much does your company spend to utilize the platform?

For this particular case, it's about $4,000 per user. It's $20,000 a year for three years.

RESULTS

Can you share any success, metrics, or overall results of your implementation of this platform?

They're relatively new, and we're currently helping them right now to get their familiarization up with regards to the predictive analytics. That shouldn't take very long because we're using models that are already delivered out of box. I think the ROI [return on investment] is going to be very large because we're talking about a company that's a multibillion dollar company. It's a publicly traded company that wants to make sure that they don't run into situations where millions of dollars of product are not being sold.

The business problem they're running into is that they are manufacturing too much of some product and too little of other products. Now, they have repercussions of having more product than they need, which is going to take up warehouse and shelf space, and then not enough product that needs to be sold and pushed through their distribution. We're talking about millions of dollars worth of decisions that they're going to be making based on a less than $100,000 spend. The goal is to have ROI that can be measured in a matter of seconds versus days or weeks or months.

FEATURES

Were there any software features or tools that really impressed you?  

I think in this particular case with our customer, the main thing that is very appealing to them is that they don't actually have to go out and hire data scientists, which are very expensive types of resources. Our client can leverage the models, the R-predictive analytics model that Alteryx already provides, so they can go ahead and analyze all of their data. They know what their sales were in 2000, and they know what their sales were in 2012. They want to go back, run this data through the model, and predict what the sales are going to be in 2012.

They can compare that against the actual results. They have the ability to tweak the model so that they can get very similar types of results. Then, they can try that again with 2012 and 2013, and then 2013 with 2014. Then, you've got 2014 with 2015 and they want to do that going out into the future. They want to be able to tweak that model without having to be a hardcore R developer or data scientist. That's currently what we're working on with them right now, leveraging the out-of-the-box models.

Looking back, are there any areas of the software upon which you feel could be added or improved?

I don't really have anything in that regard because I don't want them to do anything different. We like what they're doing. We like what Qlik can do, and we like what Alteryx can do. I think what Alteryx as a company is realizing is that, if they start building visualization capabilities into their tool, then they're probably going to be out of the good graces of the two biggest visualization vendors that they've already partnered with.

I think they understand that, and they're carving out the data blending niche because Tableau can't do it at all, and Qlik can, but you have to script it in, like a developer function. They want to make their product easier to use for a business user, which they're already doing quite successfully, but then they also want to do all the advanced analytics that Tableau and Click can't do at all.

They know where their place is in the marketplace, and they just want to dominate those areas: data blending and advanced analytics. Some people will tell you that they want Alteryx to get into the visualization side of the house because they only have a relationship with Alteryx. They don't have a relationship with Qlik or Tableau. Because we've got a relationship with Qlik, we like the lines to be delineated because it's easier for us to tell our story. Use Qlik for your visualizations, but use Alteryx to help you prep the data and do all the advanced stuff.

Have you had to interact with the platform's support team or reference their support resources?

We haven't really done a whole lot with their support team. I can tell you that we have interacted with their partner sales organization, and it's phenomenal. From a support standpoint, we haven't had a whole lot of reason or need to interact with their folks.

The Review

Experience:

One of the main reasons why we choose Alteryx is because it is from the United States. We like to buy things from our country. We also like that we can use various data types, for example .shp, .png, etc. With Alteryx we can browse our data easier and a lot faster than any other program. Our favorite features are the drag and drop interface, being able to easily input and output data, and browsing data. It has performed wonderfully for our company. We are better able to track our data, making us work to our fullest ability and profit greatly.

Pros:

The drag and drop interface is amazing.

Cons:

The map visualization is not great. It could definitely be improved.

The Review

Experience:

Our users frequently had to call colleagues and ask for information or documents that they needed, for example to handle a query relating to a supplier. This is a thing of the past, as they can now access everything they need, from a single application, typically with just a few clicks. We use Alteryx to analyze our BI data. We have seen outstanding performance reviews/results and we have achieved much more than what was originally expected.

Pros:

We value the ability to access all the data we need from a single application.

Cons:

Security could be better.
