Recent Alteryx Web Round-up


I thought I’d round up some stories / blogs recently that have caught my eye from an Alteryx perspective. I couldn’t help but firstly comment on the great news that Alteryx have secured 60 million dollars of investment, this can only be good news for customers, partners, and Alteyrx themselves. Alteryx Chairman and CEO Dean Stoecker published the following blog post:

Alteryx: Solving for the 2.5 Million Plus Person Opportunity

From a more technical perspective first I thought I’d start by sharing Ken Black’s results from his flat file import of data, in comparison to other methods he found Alteryx to be impressively quick:
