Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The scheduling feature for the automation is excellent.""Alteryx speeds up the time to obtain business answers/insights on data.""All of the data science features in terms of unioning and joining data together are valuable.""The modeling features are very good.""Shortens the time required to start analyzing data and looking for insights, minimizing the tasks that do not add value to the business and maximizing the analysis phase.""The philosophy of the citizen data scientist is the key piece, which means the no-code analytics capability. This is the feature that attracted us the most.""Technical support is very helpful.""The support is very good."

"We especially like the initial part of feature engineering, because feature engineering is included in most engines, but DataRobot has an excellent way of picking up the right features.""DataRobot can be easy to use."

More DataRobot Pros →

Cons
"The solution could improve in the visualization.""The screen when you are looking into your workflows and your ETL processes needs to be improved. You cannot manage it very well.""Lacks an open source edition which would be helpful.""Sometimes workflows tend to queue up, and they tend to get canceled for some reason that we don't know sometimes.""The interface could be improved.""I think they should really work on integrating or have a capacity to integrate some algorithmic code. I think that's one of the most important things they need to be doing.""It would be nice if they can provide Alteryx with more options for In-DB connectivity. That functionality is there, but it doesn't include all software we are connecting.""Deep learning models are not currently supported."

More Alteryx Cons →

"The business departments will love to work with DataRobot because they use the tool to investigate their data, such as targeting what they want to investigate. They don't need any data scientists near them. They can investigate at eye level and bring into the BI tool, or can bring it to the data scientist. Data scientists can use this tool to bring increase the solution to the maximum. All the others can use it, but not to the maximum.""If we could include our existing Python or R code in DataRobot, we could make it even better. The DataRobot that we have is specific to an industry, but most of the time we would have our own algorithms, which are specific to our own use case. If we had a way by which we could integrate our proprietary things into DataRobot with a simple integration, it would help us a lot."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I don't know much about the licensing, but there are some additional costs for certain features."
  • "The license is really expensive, we cannot afford to have two or three. It takes away all the budget of my area."
  • "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."
  • "My organization pays for it, and I do not look into the financial aspect of the licensing, but I know it is pretty expensive."
  • "In order to have designers, and, if you want to collaborate, you have to buy a server. If the designer is $5,000, and if you want a server, you have to pay $80,000."
  • "There is a license required for this solution."
  • "The cost of the solution could be reduced."
  • "The price could be better."
  • More Alteryx Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "We dropped the plan to use DataRobot, because we found the pricing to be on the higher sise. We liked DataRobot a lot, but due to the pricing, we dropped that idea."
  • "The price of DataRobot is good because if you take the price of the solution which is approximately $65,000, it is less than a data scientist. There are very few data scientists available."

Its platform helps organizations answer business questions quickly and efficiently, and can be used as a major building block in a digital transformation or automation initiative. With Alteryx, you can build processes in a more efficient, repeatable, and less error-prone way. Unlike other tools, Alteryx is easy to use without an IT background. The platform is very robust and can be used in virtually any industry or functional area.

    • API, cloud, and hybrid access: Alteryx can read and write data in databases, files, REST APIs, and a myriad of other locations (with the correct permissions). When a workflow is published, you can also call a workflow through a REST API to start it.

    • Data science: Alteryx provides pre-built models that are extremely useful for data scientists who may have limited programming skills and also gives you the ability to add R or Python code directly within a workflow.

    • Geospatial analysis: Alteryx gives users drag-and-drop tools to geocode, plot, and map locations, customers, competitors, or anything that has a location (employee, truck, pipeline, etc.).
