Companies of all sizes realize the tremendous potential for data, but many struggle with turning that data into something they can take action upon, quickly enough for it to make a difference. Legacy approaches and tools for analytics have simply slowed them down even more. And, analysts in line-of-business departments such as sales, marketing, and finance are exhausting the capabilities of Microsoft Excel and other point solutions, and have grown tired of having to depend on data scientists and specialized staff for data prep, blending, analytics, and sharing of insights.
With Alteryx these problems no longer slow an organization down. Alteryx Analytics provides analysts with the unique ability to easily prep, blend and analyze all of their data using a repeatable workflow, then deploy and share analytics at scale for deeper insights in hours, not weeks. Analysts love the Alteryx Analytics platform because they can connect to and cleanse data from data warehouses, cloud applications, spreadsheets and other sources, easily join this data together, then perform analytics – predictive, statistical and spatial – using the same intuitive user interface, without writing any code.
As greater volumes and types of data become necessary for analysts to enable critical decisions, blending data sources to gather insights is now more important than ever. Unfortunately, many data analysts try to accomplish this using Microsoft Excel or other tools that were not designed for preparing and joining the influx of new data. Frustrated, they turn to their IT department or data scientists within their organization to write code and manually build the analytic dataset they need, losing precious time and control.
Key Alteryx capabilities for Data Blending;
- Connect to and cleanse data from data warehouses, cloud applications, spreadsheets and other sources
- Easily join data from multiple sources to deliver a more complete dataset
- Repeatable workflow design that provides insight into every step of the data blending process, and allows you to automate future projects to save time and eliminate errors
Alteryx eliminates this frustration through self-service data analytics that allows line-of-business analysts themselves to access, cleanse, and blend data from multiple sources using drag-and-drop tools with no coding required. This enables the people who know the data the best to easily create the actionable analytic dataset they need for business decision making (such as retail site selection, or multichannel profiling), or for driving a specific business process (such as packaging data for sale by data aggregators.)
