IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alteryx, Inc., the leader in data blending and advanced analytics, today announced it has been positioned as a Visionary in Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms1. The selection of Visionaries is based on a company's ability to execute and their completeness of vision, which includes high scores in innovation, customer feedback, market understanding and product strategy. Alteryx is also included in the Visionaries Quadrant in the 2014 Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms2, and is the only vendor to be listed in the Visionaries Quadrant of both the 2014 Magic Quadrants.
"We believe our position in the Visionaries Quadrant in the BI and Analytics Platforms Magic Quadrant affirms the need for a modern, user-centric platform for analytics," said George Mathew, president and chief operating officer at Alteryx. "Legacy solutions continue to lag and aren't addressing key areas where users need better tools to drive analytic decision making. Alteryx is part of the new guard of companies empowering multitudes of data analysts with a strong user-driven experience to drive the insights particularly in customer analytics."
Alteryx solves these complex analytic challenges with a simple solution that allows line-of-business data analysts to leverage an intuitive workflow for data blending and advanced analytics which leads to deeper insights in hours, versus weeks. The platform is able to seamlessly blend internal, third party and cloud-based data with an easy drag and drop visual workflow. Users can then perform advanced analytics including R-based predictive analytics, and spatial analytics without the need for programming. The final result can then be output into a visual PDF, a database, the Tableau file format, or many other formats including into an analytic application as part of the Alteryx Analytics Gallery. Applications in the gallery can be published and shared as public or private cloud-based applications for others to view and gain insight to evaluate the next critical business decision.
This Magic Quadrant represents a snapshot of the BI and Analytics platform market at a particular point in time. Gartner's assessments take into account the vendors' current product offerings, direct customer feedback and overall strategies, as well as their future initiatives and product road maps.

This Magic Quadrant will help business leaders that are developing their BI strategies to assess whether they have the right products and enterprise platforms to support them.
