Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Technical support is very helpful.""The most valuable feature of Alteryx is the intelligence suite.""The solution has been stable.""I like the solution's velocity, the speed with which it processes data, and its ease of use.""Alteryx effectively visualizes the flow of data and what happens at each stage. I also like that it's a no-code solution. I also like that you can troubleshoot certain parts of the workflow by putting them in a sandbox.""It's super easy to learn how to use it — the learning curve is very small.""The feature that I have found most valuable for Alteryx is its geo-referencing feature, it is very good. I use it a lot, especially for supply chain.""I think the most valuable feature for Alteryx in a health facility is that it permits cleaning, organizing, and merging of databases such as Excel and Access."

"The most valuable features of Toad Data are you could write a parameterized query and it wouldn't error out, it would give you the parameters that you could input. The auto-formatting feature is useful because it was great for keeping your queries neat and understandable. The auto comment, and uncomment toggles that you could do were convenient.""The Connectivity and Connection Manager supports a broad number of connection types, and it is trivial for end-users to set up their own connections to sources."

Cons
"It would be great to create the final users' visualization within Alteryx.""What they're struggling with is it's not as mature as Tableau in the user management area. It was tougher to manage the server part of it right away, especially since the user base has grown.""The solution can be quite complex in some aspects.""There could be a bit of improvement related to performance. Sometimes it demands a lot of resources for running it, like memory and search.""I honestly can't think of anything that needs to be improved.""The scalability worries me a lot at the moment because the cost of the solution is high and it is not growing considerably. Unfortunately, we started during early COVID times and because of the economic downturn, all the cost cuttings, and everything, it is not growing as expected.""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."

More Alteryx Cons →

"Toad Data could improve by having additional features, such as query prediction. This could help someone who's not the strongest programmer. If the software could help them write queries correctly it would be very helpful, especially for small development teams or teams that lack the input skills necessary to write and program efficiently.""On the scheduling server, some scheduled reports just sit there and never execute for the first time. After manually executing the first time, they run with no issues."

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."

  • "The cost of this product is reasonable."
