Experience the Power of Alteryx

In-Database Analytics: Traditional advanced analytics tools require extracting data from the database — adding time and cost while limiting scalability. Alteryx in-database blending and analytics maximizes the power of Amazon Redshift, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Cloudera Impala, Spark, and Teradata by applying formulas, filters, and joins, and performing advanced analytics to the data ― in place. It’s the essential ingredient to scale Big Data analytics.

Predictive Analytics: Utilizing regression models, predictive models, and other advanced analytics techniques often requires skilled data scientists. With R and Python integration, and 40+ pre-built tools and macros for data investigation, predictive modeling, grouping, and time-series analysis, Alteryx enables data analysts and data scientists alike to impact future outcomes across their organizations.

Data Mining: Integrating, blending, and applying the latest machine learning algorithms to discover patterns in data are often an iterative, labor-intensive process. Alteryx provides the necessary advanced analytics tools to perform data mining techniques or leverage existing models through integration with R and Python, or full read/write of IBM SPSS and SAS files, providing flexibility through the analytics lifecycle, from data sourcing, blending, and enrichment to visualization.

Bi + Visualization: Your business intelligence and data visualization needs vary across your organization. That’s why Alteryx adapts to your user needs, whether you’re preparing and enriching data to drive Tableau, Power BI, Qlik, or other tools for analysts, or powering the entire analytics lifecycle from predictive modeling to reporting and sharing applications inside and outside your organization with Alteryx Server, Alteryx Connect and the Alteryx Analytics Gallery. No matter how users engage, everyone gains strong data governance, shared metadata and assets, a trusted data foundation ― and analytics agility.

Data Quality Management: The right decisions require a foundation of strong data and master-data management. Alteryx puts data quality management in the hands of analysts, enabling them to improve data accuracy through data enrichment, fuzzy matching capabilities, and transparent workflows. This helps them better understand data changes throughout the preparation, blending, and integration process.

Metadata Management: Your data is surrounded by valuable metadata ― names, types, relationships, and more. Harvesting and managing metadata is essential to cut the risk of inconsistent or incorrect decisions. Alteryx centralizes all your metadata from across databases and apps like Oracle, Salesforce, Amazon RedShift, Tableau, and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as Alteryx information, all in a single, trusted asset catalog.
