Has everything I need, but the community forum should be easy to use
There is a community for Alteryx, but it is so spread out. For example, if I face an issue with Informatica, I have Informatica forums that keep on adding to that. They have a very cohesive structure when it comes to the issues and their error messages. They are very easy to use for Informatica issues, but in the case of Alteryx, the information is too spread out, and it is difficult to find the answer to a particular issue that someone faces. If Alteryx can organize its forum and the issues in a better way, it will be easy for developers. I mostly used it for flat files, but I have many colleagues who reported that to tune a query, in case they want to directly connect to the database, there is no option to optimize the performance of the query, as we have in Informatica. With Informatica, we can use hints and other things and they directly hit the database, but with Alteryx, that is not the case. So, when it comes to database connectivity, the performance is not as good as a flat file as a source.

Powerful, easy to use, with excellent pricing plan
Our primary use case bank in the financial sector, we review the information and make some validation with the legacy system and a book of indicators of KPIs with directors and CEOs The data is very powerful and the splice is fast. The most valuable feature I have found is the low-level…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"The most valuable feature of Alteryx is user-friendliness."
"All of the data science features in terms of unioning and joining data together are valuable."
"The scheduling feature for the automation is excellent."
"The connectors are a very good feature."
"The most valuable feature of Alteryx is its stand-alone version that we do not have to download dependencies for loads. Additionally, the scan is useful for beginners."
"The ease-of-use allows non-technical business users to directly create their own solutions without the use of additional development resources."
"The data transformation feature is the most valuable. The ability to ingest data, visualize data, and transform that data is useful."
"I like the fact that you can easily blend data from different platforms."
"Compared to other reporting tools, it is very effective but does require an understanding of certain concepts in QuickSight. This understanding is crucial for creating dimensions, changing metrics, and visualizing reports."
"Amazon QuickSight has introduced a new functionality called Q bar, which allows the user to do natural language queries and get additional insights using some built-in generative capabilities."
"It is notably fast in handling large data set refreshes, making it efficient for data analysis."
"The solution is simple to implement."
"One of the most valuable features of Amazon QuickSight has been the speed at which visualizations can be created."
"The solution is very quick to turn around and integrate."
"The integration is very seamless. We stored our result CSV files in S3 and connected directly from there."
"The query and dashboard capabilities are entirely good."
 

Cons

"The only area where the product lags is documentation and videos on the analytical app and the batch macro."
"The solution just lacks in terms of data visualization. That is why we use Tableau and Qlik in our organization. They help to pick up the slack. If data visualization was added, Alteryx would be a very good tool, and much more complete."
"The server is too expensive for what you get and it really a designer desktop on a server."
"There is currently no cloud solution and this would be valuable for many clients."
"They can provide some pre-built tools for predictive analytics instead of us having to build all the tools. It should also be improved from the visualization aspect. It should have better visualization capabilities. There are tools out there that have better visualization capabilities, which Alteryx is lacking currently."
"Alteryx is just as complicated as coding, in my opinion."
"It's a technical product and those that don't have proper training will have to deal with a steep learning curve."
"The learning curve is long, and there is lack of e-learning; the tool is not user-friendly to a non-technical user."
"I just want a few more features to be added."
"It should support integration with Python or R."
"One area is that integrating data from different sources into QuickSight can be a bit tricky, especially with Amazon Connect. To get data flowing, you need to use two additional services and configure them correctly."
"Lacked connectivity with other third-party tools and data sources."
"Amazon QuickSight's visualization could be improved."
"The number of features in the product is limited in comparison with the other tools in the market, like Power BI."
"There is room for improvement in terms of the number of visualizations and dashboards that are available."
"The product is quite expensive because the price is too close to QlikView's prices but it does not ring as well as QlikView."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else."
"It's very expensive. I'd rate it a four out of ten in terms of the price. It's great for big companies but not for small companies."
"The pricing is $5000 per year per production license."
"I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."
"The cost of the solution could be reduced."
"We use the free version of the solution. There are enterprise licenses available. It cost approximately $5,000 annually. It is an expensive solution and there are additional features that cost more money."
"Its price should be lower. The key thing that we see is that talking about ROI is an important element at the time of purchase. Cost becomes a factor in every discussion. Justifying the ROI for these kinds of workflows is always a challenge, and the only way to counter the challenge is by addressing the pricing."
"The price could be better."
"The standard edition is free to use for exploration purposes while the enterprise edition needs to be paid for. The pricing for this solution is very reasonable."
"The product pricing is better than other vendors."
"The Amazon QuickSight licensing model my company's on is pay-as-you-go, but I wouldn't be able to give the figures because that's handled by the finance department."
"I rate the price of Amazon QuickSight a four on a scale of one to ten, where one is a low price, and ten is a high price."
"It's affordable compared to other long-term contractor business tools available in the market."
"It is simpler and cheaper than other solutions."
"The pricing is cost-effective with a good plan."
"The solution's pricing is cheaper than the other products in the market."
