Alteryx unveils unified platform experience

Alteryx has announced expanded cloud-connected platform experiences for its flagship Alteryx Designer product with the Alteryx Analytics Cloud Platform, as well as new, upcoming cloud-based Location Intelligence capabilities to bring spatial analytics to the masses. The unified, self-service, and enterprise-ready Alteryx Analytics Cloud Platform now bridges data across all systems with increased governance for faster insights.

The Alteryx Analytics Cloud Platform continues to gain traction, with the number of customers leveraging the company’s cloud solutions increasing over 30% year-over-year in Q1 2023. Alteryx anticipates adding new innovations to empower enterprises to accelerate their path to the cloud, speed business processes with centralized data governance and security, and make intelligent location-based insights:

● Alteryx’s expanded cloud-connected experiences include Cloud Execution for Desktop, which enables enterprises to extend existing investments, reduce costs, and centralize management. Cloud-connected experiences have been designed to allow users to drive business decisions together by creating a workflow on Alteryx Designer, saving their work to the Alteryx Analytics Cloud Platform, and running and executing their workflow in the cloud.

● New enterprise ready and enhanced governance capabilities make analytics more scalable so all users can get insights faster, while improving control and reducing risk. Organizations can easily implement their environment of choice using private data handling, govern and secure data connections with new options for authentication, and better manage large deployments with plug-and-play Enterprise Utilities.

● Across all industries, users of all skill levels can use the new Location Intelligence capabilities to easily visualize and analyze spatial data to identify patterns and trends that cannot typically be found with spreadsheets. This facilitates users to discover location-based insights that improve customer experiences and business efficiency. Integrations with Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, and TomTom further deliver faster performance to support smarter decisions.

Karl Crowther VP, MEA, at Alteryx commented, “Across the world, business leaders are looking for ways to gain clarity in a landscape of uncertainty. Cloud analytics has crucial advantages over on-site analytics, above and beyond its big data enablement. The cloud facilitates powerful data processing at far faster speeds and much greater scale. The result is faster time to insights that drives top-line gains from better decision-making and bottom-line returns from efficient resource management—both topics that make business leaders smile. There is tremendous value in cloud analytics. Our 2023 State of Cloud Analytics Report found that four out of five respondents believed cloud analytics would positively impact economically uncertain times.”
