Alteryx Analytics

Data Preparation Tools

Most analysts wish they can spend more time analyzing their data than preparing it for analysis. Alteryx Analytics helps cut the data preparation according to users by up to 30% giving them more time to test hypothesis and evaluate models. Alteryx Analytics eases the process with a set of drag and drop tools that eliminate the need for SQL coding and complex formulas.

This is a sample of the tools available in the Alteryx Designer. For the full list of tools, click here.
