  • (IF USING WITH FULL DECK)It is useful to think of Alteryx as a data blending and advanced analytics workflow.First we enable analysts to access all the relevant data they need for their analytics, whether that data is stored in Hadoop, data warehouse, in the cloud or on their desktop in Excel. We also enable access to sources as diverse as spatial, unstructured or applications such as Marketo.Next we allow them to easily blend that data to create the analytic dataset that is relevant to the question at hand, and even make it easy to enrich that data with third party data – which we or partners can provide.One the analytic data set is ready, analysts use the same workflow to build predictive and spatial analytics. The predictive capabilities are based on the R language but we have created packaged tools that can be simply dragged and dropped in to the workflow and then configured. These require no coding expertise but if you do have an R programmer they can customize these tools or even create their own to be reused in Alteryx. We also provide spatial analytics tools that can be brought into the workflow to enable location or spatial analysis.Finally, its important to make it simple to share the deeper business that the analyst is producing. With the traditional approach analytic apps and reports often have be pulled together in another environment or custom coded. With Alteryx this is just added to the workflow enabling reporting, output for visualization, or analytic apps to be produced in the same intuitive way.EXTRA NOTESThe Alteryx Designer is specifically designed for analysts who can benefit from a single workflow for data blending, analytics and reporting.Our core product approach is provide a drag and drop visual workflow for analytics. Each step of the workflow is created by dragging a tool into canvas with no coding required.We enable analysts to seamlessly blend whatever data it is that they need – whether it is from internal sources like ERPs, Excel or Hadoop or from 3rd party sources such as Experian and even with cloud sources like social media or salesforce.com.That workflow approach extends to the next step of doing the analysis itself – again this is all achieved with drag and drop tools where provide a deep range of spatial and predictive analytic tools that encompass topics as varied as drive times, regression, or clustering. Once the analytic component is complete the obvious next step is to get this into the hands of decision makers or the customers of the analyst. We enable the analyst to extend that same workflow to deliver reports, visualization or even package that workflow as an analytic app that any business decision maker can use to get their answers independentlyAlteryx is a very capable platform but importantly the intuitive workflow approach that we provide means that this power is highly accessible to analysts. Research shows us that 86% of our new users deliver business value using the product within their first week after installation.
