We need more documentation. We have some POCs available, but they can partner with Alteryx to create some more. In addition, they should release a cloud version of the product.

The data engineering and integration need to be improved. I'm not sure if it already exists, but it could include some components that allow you to simply connect to the API's endpoint and consume it. To do it today, I would have to use Python components and develop it through a script. It would be simpler if they provided a component where you could simply enter some parameters and see the results.

Alteryx could move faster to create a cloud equivalent of the desktop version of Designer. They could also make their new releases more stable as they always seem to have bugs. In the next release, Alteryx Designer should include more integrations with Qlik Sense and Qlik Sales.

Alteryx needs to improve its web governance. The gallery you use to filter the data is something else that could use some work. For instance, if you have a report connected to a database and want to filter a specific user, you should be able to suggest a specific region or a particular year. I know that the Alteryx isn't designed for data governance, but that would be great to think about.

I have been working mostly on the designer aspect of the solution and I have found that the product and needs to improve its reporting tool. The actual usage part of it needs to be explained more. It's too vague right now. For example, the solution needs more specific use case information. I need to know how we can deal with the BI tools on the market and the reporting tools standards. I want insights into these types of comparisons.

If the price were reduced then it would be more competitive.

The product could offer more connectors and more databases with support for the in-database function. For example, there is one special feature that we use that's an in-database connection feature. When we use this, the operation that we are designing runs directly on the database. However, currently, it only works with a few databases. We would like to have more options for this feature. It needs to integrate better across other databases. The reporting features can be a bit complicated sometimes. There could be more scheduling options available on the server.

Its price can be improved. It is too expensive for our country. Because of its high price, we can't sell Alteryx Designer in this region. We used to be their reseller partner. There is also an additional cost for automating the data and running the flows, which makes it even more expensive. It will be very good if they can let users automate the data for free. Other solutions like Tableau provide this feature for free.

We have a few customers who use this solution. They already have this solution in their company. They ask us to help them in creating different flows for different solutions and preparing different kinds of data. We only give support to these customers. We are using the latest version.

The functionality of drag and drop is the most valuable. It is a very user-friendly tool that can be understood easily. My teams also work with other solutions, such as Integration Services, and these solutions are very difficult for people who don't have technical knowledge.
