Meet Alteryx

Leadership

The Leader in Data Blending and Advanced Analytics

It started with the vision of three founders - Dean Stoecker, Olivia Duane Adams and Ned Harding - to build software products that help organizations get deeper insights about their business. They founded Alteryx, Inc in 2010, and through their leadership and passion, the company quickly became the visionary leader in data blending and advanced analytics. Today the company continues its mission to empower analysts to get business insight in hours, not the weeks typical of traditional approaches.
