IRVINE, Calif., July 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alteryx, the leader in data blending and advanced analytics, today reported record-setting attendance for its 2014 Inspire conference, held recently in San Diego. The conference, which celebrates the significant contributions being made by data analysts, drew almost 600 attendees, over a 60 percent increase from last year's event.
"As an event, Alteryx Inspire is a celebration and testament to the meaningful impact data analysts are making inside their organizations," said George Mathew, President and COO of Alteryx. "There is no doubt that today is an exciting time to be an analyst, and the incredible stories told by our customers showed that in every session at the conference."
Analysts have always been crucial to the strategic and organizational success of their company, but even with new sources of insight like Big Data, they are often constrained by the traditional process and technology stack they are forced to use. Alteryx Inspire showed how analysts can have 'Analytic Freedom' using the new analytics stack, and deliver deeper insight in hours, not the weeks typical of traditional approaches.

- More than 50 user sessions, from notable companies such as McDonalds, Room & Board, Ingersoll Rand and Time Warner Cable Media – view some session content here
