Alteryx accelerates decision making with Strategic Analytics 7.0

Data Artisans empowered by private cloud, social media connectors, and predictive capabilities

Denver, CO – Inspire 2012 – February 29, 2012 Alteryx, Inc., the leading provider of Strategic Analytics, today announced Alteryx Strategic Analytics 7.0 at Inspire 2012, the annual Alteryx user and developer conference for agile business intelligence (BI) and analytics.

Alteryx Strategic Analytics 7.0 gives data artisans and business leaders the ability to utilize the private cloud, unify and leverage critical data from various sources, and simplify the adoption of analytics through packaged applications driven by industry-driven best practices.

“The future of Strategic Analytics is here. Alteryx empowers companies to leverage all critical data inside and outside the four walls of the company such as combining consumer segmentation insights with social media streams,” said George Mathew, president and chief operating officer, Alteryx. “Alteryx Strategic Analytics 7.0 brings together everything a data artisan needs to design insanely great analytic apps while publishing them to the private cloud.”

Alteryx Strategic Analytics is a “desktop-to-cloud” solution that quickly delivers analytic applications into the hands of decision makers. Data artisans are no longer encumbered by the traditional BI stack; they have more freedom to ingest data from anywhere into repeatable processes and applications that are ready for changing business demands. Alteryx also enables users to be more agile, getting to the right data faster with pre-packaged best practices available from the start.

Marcus & Millichap, a long-time Alteryx client, was excited to participate in the beta evaluation of Alteryx Strategic Analytics 7.0. “This version of Alteryx will empower Marcus & Millichap to make a significant leap in delivering important business intelligence to decision makers in our leadership team,” said John Chang, vice president of Research Services, Marcus & Millichap. “Alteryx 7.0 offers new capabilities that enable our analytics team to publish actionable intelligence via secure cloud and web-based channels, thereby providing dynamic information options to our leadership team. This will enable managers to make better informed decisions more quickly than before.”

Alteryx Strategic Analytics 7.0 breaks the current BI boundaries, letting customers:

  • Empower the private cloud – This release enables data artisans to deploy their analytics for broader consumption with the push of a button, providing easy authentication and consistently refreshing presentation content along with the packaging of key data sets.
  • Drive strategic decisions from social media streams – Unify critical data from Twitter, foursquare, and Yelp (full availability in the second quarter of 2012), plus the latest enterprise cloud connectors including Amazon S3, an Apache™ Hive connector that integrates data from Apache Hadoop, and native integration of the R programming language for predictive analytics.
  • Simplify analytics adoption – Alteryx 7.0 comes with pre-packaged analytic applications for key industries, including retail, consumer packaged goods, media, and telecommunications, while also leveraging the Alteryx Module Exchange, an online analytic applications idea-sharing community for experienced data artisans.

“Today’s rapidly changing marketplace puts escalating pressure on business executives to make more enlightened decisions more quickly,” said Jeffrey M. Kaplan, managing director, THINKstrategies, Inc. and founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace. “Alteryx’s cloud-based strategic analytics solution enables organizations to obtain and evaluate internal and external data sources to make better decisions faster.”
