Analytics Cloud Platform Features Powerful Consumer-Based Experience; Enables Anyone, Anywhere to Access and Share Sophisticated Analytic Applications
Irvine, Calif., – Nov 6, 2014 – Alteryx, Inc., the leader in data blending and advanced analytics, today announced that over 15,000 users rely on the Alteryx Analytics Gallery for consuming over 1,600 analytic applications in the cloud, and that users now have the ability to write reviews, rate apps and more. The Alteryx Analytics Gallery is the first analytics cloud platform to provide decision-makers with analytic applications that are as engaging as the apps they use at home. Alteryx is introducing several new features to the gallery, including the ability to use Bazaarvoice to rate and write reviews for apps, see app ratings and reviews from other users, and ask questions from the app owner.
"In the past, the options for data analytics in the cloud were severely limited and none of these offerings were focused on the needs of the user," said Rick Schultz, SVP of Marketing at Alteryx. "With the Alteryx Analytics Gallery, we're making the consumerization of analytics in the cloud a reality; and as the numbers reveal, users and businesses are rapidly adopting this flexible deployment model to easily get and share results from modern analytics."
The Alteryx Analytics Gallery features over 1,600 analytic apps similar to a mobile app store or other cloud-optimized service. Anyone can sign up for free to view the analytics gallery, then browse and run these sophisticated sample analytic applications created by others. The apps are easily searchable by topic area or organized into sections typically by industry. Some applications are even available for downloading, so users can leverage the app and further customize it for their individual needs.
"At Rent-A-Center, Geographic Information Systems and market planning are integral to the growth of many departments across our company," said Deanna Sanchez, Market Planning and GIS Manager at Rent-A-Center. "The Alteryx Analytics Gallery helps us empower our front-line end users, allowing them to generate maps and analytic reports on the fly, anytime, anywhere."
While many people are using the Alteryx Analytics Gallery with the sample applications, other companies are also leveraging this Alteryx technology to create their own analytics gallery in-house. This way line-of-business data analysts can build proprietary analytic applications for the organization and securely share with them within their internal organization to other data analysts or to business users to run a report and share insights across the business.
In the latest release of the Alteryx Analytics Gallery, users can rate and write reviews for apps, as well as see app ratings and reviews from other users so they can select the best and most appropriate app to deliver the insight they need. They also can communicate directly to the author of the app via Bazaarvoice, and ask questions about data sources, app construction, output formats, and more.
Users can access and run applications in the Alteryx Analytics Gallery at https://gallery.alteryx.com/. Additional customization is supported for existing Alteryx Designer license holders, or by downloading a trial of Alteryx Designer at http://www.alteryx.com/download.
