Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"All of the data science features in terms of unioning and joining data together are valuable.""The support is very good.""Data processing is most valuable. It is one of the fastest data blockers out there in the market, which is a fascinating thing about Alteryx.""The most valuable feature of Alteryx is user-friendliness.""The scheduling within the solution is excellent.""I like the fact that you can easily blend data from different platforms.""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.""The most valuable feature for me is integration."

"The solution is good for teaching, since there is no need to code.""It's a coding-less opportunity to use AI. This is the major value for me.""All of the features related to the ETL are fantastic. That includes the connectors to other programs, databases, and the meta node function.""I was able to apply basic algorithms through just dragging and dropping.""What I like the most is that it works almost out of the box with Random Forest and other Forest nodes.""The visual workflow tools for custom and complex tasks always beat raw coding languages with the agility, speed to deliver, and ease of subsequent changes.""The most valuable feature is the data wrangling, which is what I mainly use it for.""The product is open-source and therefore free to use."

Cons
"There are a few imputation techniques which they really need to include.""The technical support could have a little bit of improvement.""The only weakness I would say is on the visualization side of having that dynamic incapability.""Lacks an open source edition which would be helpful.""The server is too expensive for what you get and it really a designer desktop on a server.""It should have Linux support. It currently supports only Windows. It does not support any other platform. Its price should also be lower. Their US partner management program is actually unresponsive. One of the reasons why we don't have a formalized partnership plan with them is because their partner management team is atrociously unresponsive. This is something that they need to change.""A colleague of mind mentioned that the solution should have more options for the visualization of data.""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."

More Alteryx Cons →

"Both RapidMiner and KNIME should be made easier to use in the field of deep learning.""It could input more data acquisitions from other sources and it is difficult to combine with Python.""Compared to the other data tools on the market, the user interface can be improved.""There are a lot of tools in the product and it would help if they were grouped into classes where you can select a function, rather than a specific tool.""If they had a more structured training model it would be very helpful.""The predefined workflows could use a bit of improvement.""I would prefer to have more connectivity.""It needs more examples, use cases, and MOOC to learn, especially with respect to the algorithms and how to practically create a flow from end-to-end."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "There are some implementation services and internal effort costs at the beginning but there is nothing else."
  • "The price for Alteryx Designer is reasonable but the price for Alteryx Server for universal collaborations is too expensive."
  • "Opt for the three year subscription. It is 20% less than the yearly one."
  • "ROI is huge. There are some secondary benefits, like analysts getting their post 5 PM time back or the ability to shorten all closing processes to a half or less."
  • "It is $4,000 a year, so it is cheap versus other solutions. It also accomplishes three times the volume on the job in the same time (as the other solutions).​"
  • "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."

  • "KNIME is free as a stand-alone desktop-based platform but if you want to get a KNIME server then you can find the cost on their website."
  • "The price of KNIME is quite reasonable and the designer tool can be used free of charge."
  • "It's an open-source solution."
  • "The price for Knime is okay."
  • "At this time, I am using the free version of Knime."
  • "This is an open-source solution that is free to use."
  • "There is a Community Edition and paid versions available."
  • "KNIME assets are stand alone, as the solution is open source."
