Leading business intelligence provider demonstrates its philanthropic side
Irvine, CA - May 15, 2012 - Alteryx, Inc., a leading provider of Strategic Analytics, is dedicated to creating business intelligence (BI) technology that lets users easily solve data analysis problems and drive essential business decisions. Using Alteryx, Data Artisans can pull, overlay and analyze any combination of enterprise data, industry content and location intelligence all in a single picture, enabling businesses to see how people are connected through information, and to drive more strategic business decisions.
Alteryx terms this phenomenon "humanizing big data," and the company further demonstrates the heart and soul behind strategic analytics through its own ability to give back to its community.
On May 18 - 20, 2012, Alteryx will be a participating Sponsor of Adventure TEAM Challenge 2012 for the third year in a row held by World T.E.A.M, a not-for-profit organization that organizes athletic events for disabled and abled bodied citizens. Held in the Colorado desert near Grand Junction and Fruita, the three days of competition are designed to inspire and challenge athletes of all abilities.
Alteryx is sponsoring five, five-person teams that are made up of Alteryx employees, Alteryx customers from companies such as Intalytics, Spatial Data, TomTom and Walmart, and two disabled athlete team-members, one ambulatory such as being blind or an amputee, and the other is required to be in a wheelchair. These events could include running, mountain biking, whitewater rafting , rappelling, or paddle boarding through the wilderness as the teams, truly are a team, and support one another each step of the way.
"I cannot begin to describe the impact that each of us has felt at Alteryx as a result of being a part of The Adventure TEAM Challenge. We work in an industry that lives by data and numbers - things that are oftentimes seen as black and white. However, through our technology, we have been able to see the colorful multi-layers of this information and the ever present network of human connections as a result," explains Dean Stoecker, chairman and chief executive officer, Alteryx. "This proves true in our continued relationship with World T.E.A.M Sports; we not only feel, but see the direct impact of working closely with team members towards a greater good, and the experience has been immensely rewarding."
Created by blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer, the Adventure TEAM Challenge brings together experienced adventure athletes, wounded warriors from our nation's military, fire fighters and desk jockeys - including paraplegics and quadriplegics. Each team must work together during the competition, and along the way, teams are challenged both physically and mentally, and learn that innovation and teamwork are the keys to success.
