Finding Truth: Using Alteryx and Qlik for Agile Spatial Analytics

There's no question that spatial data can add a powerful dimension of context to traditional and big data analytics. It provides the proverbial 'where' of the business transaction. But like any data type, the value of spatial data is greatly reduced if the answers it provides aren't timely, visual, and actionable in ways that allow for new lines of thought to be quickly explored.

With next-generation platforms like Alteryx and Qlik®, the full power of spatial analytics is easily available to the line-of-business users who understand the questions best. Now that Alteryx's spatial analytics can easily integrate with Qlik applications, companies will have access to deeper geospatial insights faster.

The Power of Predictive Analytics

The power to predict future business conditions and know customers' wants and needs is a huge asset for any business leader. While traditional BI can provide useful historical information, and modern dashboards can provide alerts and real-time monitoring, the ability to be forward-looking with these tools is limited. Predictive analytics fills this gap by allowing users to operate based on historical and current information and predict the likely future environment using the statistical R language and other methodologies. These insights allow better-informed decision making and improved results.
