Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The connectors are a very good feature.""All of the data science features in terms of unioning and joining data together are valuable.""Good data transformation.""The product's Macros probably are one of the most useful aspects.""The design portion of this tool is easy to use without code, which his something that something we can appreciate.""Technical support is very helpful.""The product is very stable and super fast, five-star. It's significantly more stable than it's nearest competitor.""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."

"Unlike relational, where you're linking together multiple tables, with Essbase, you basically define what the dimensions are beforehand, and you define the hierarchy, and then load the data. This allows you to do a pretty sophisticated analysis so that you can drill into it and slice and dice the data."

Cons
"Even when it already includes some AI models, this area could be improved.""Sometimes workflows tend to queue up, and they tend to get canceled for some reason that we don't know sometimes.""The workflow and pipeline need to improve.""There's a big jump in terms of pricing between license tiers. I'm not sure I understand why the price jumps are so high.""Deep learning models are not currently supported.""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.""The solution could improve in the visualization.""There are no ready models to use in analytics."

"Essbase has a programming language, and it has a couple of functions to do forecasting, however, their feature set for that is not that good."

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."
