Cons
"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.""The next feature release should include easier reporting.""Alteryx could be improved in the area of analytics and central governance.""The solution could work on the BI side of the tool to make it a bit better.""I'd like to see more artificial intelligence business tools or features in Alteryx.""The principal problem is the pricing. They're expensive products.""All of the reports are migrated or exported in an Excel file, and most of the time, a business intelligence tool is required. They could have better reporting. The aesthetic could be improved.""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."
