IRVINE, Calif., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alteryx, Inc., the leading provider of Strategic Analytics software, today announced Project Edition, a free, easy-to-use analytics solution designed to unleash the capabilities of the hundreds of thousands of business and data analysts in every line-of-business group. With the power to utilize any data source, the Project Edition leverages the newly available Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.5 platform to enable these analysts to build, iterate and deploy an analytic workflow or application without the delays and budget restrictions of legacy solutions. The Project Edition allows users to use the product to create and run their analytic workflow and deliver their required output up to 15 times, or with incentives for additional output.
"Until now, line-of-business analysts have depended on IT to handle sophisticated analytics, which can be costly, time-consuming and offers little assurance that decision makers are getting the information they need," said George Mathew, president and chief operating officer, Alteryx. "The new Project Edition of Alteryx Strategic Analytics provides the opportunity for the underserved Data Artisans to experience Alteryx by providing a powerful, free instant analytics platform to complete their next business critical analytics projects faster."
Project Edition enables line-of-business analysts to use the complete Alteryx Strategic Analytics platform, to address immediate analytic needs to:
- Instantly create the analytics needed for a project with any data: By enabling analysts to rapidly integrate and cleanse data from any source (Excel, text files, Data Warehouses, Big Data sources such as Hadoop, Cloud applications like SalesForce.com, social media and more), Alteryx removes the barriers of long IT and data warehouse processes, allowing customers to cut the time spent integrating and cleansing data by up to 70 percent or more1.
- Easily build analytic workflows and quickly iterate as business evolves: By providing an easy to use, no coding way to create sophisticated analytics, the Alteryx Strategic Analytics, Project Edition delivers the advanced capabilities locked away in legacy solutions to the mass of analysts, while enabling 87 percent of Alteryx customers to report value in less than a week2.
- Confidently deliver the exact analytics business decision makers need: By confidently creating analytic applications without developer experience, analysts can easily output and share results in multiple formats, including Excel, Tableau, reports or data files. Analysts can also share analytic applications in the Public Gallery section of the Alteryx Analytics Gallery, the Alteryx public cloud offering.
In addition, Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.5 is now available to further support the Consumerization of Big Data by putting powerful analytics into the hands of the business analyst and decision makers. At its annual Inspire 2013 conference in March, Alteryx unveiled the 8.5 version of its product, which includes the first native creation of the Tableau Data Extract, advanced interactive mapping, and a new designer interface specifically designed for line-of-business data analysts. Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.5 also comes with added pre-packaged, drag and drop predictive tools built on the recently released R 3.0.0.
"Tableau and Alteryx are making it easier for our customers to gain insights and make data driven decisions," said Dan Jewett, vice president of product management at Tableau Software. "People can create sophisticated analytic workflows with advanced predictive analysis, and then output directly to a Tableau Data Extract for superior visualization and analysis."
