Alteryx empowers businesspeople "to quickly get their hands dirty in predictive"
Irvine, Calif., April 2, 2015 – Alteryx, Inc., the leader in data blending and advanced analytics, has been named a Strong Performer by Forrester Research, Inc. in its report "The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Predictive Analytics Solutions, Q2 2015." In the report, Alteryx was named a Strong Performer based on its scores in the current offering and strategy categories.
We are pleased to see Alteryx placed as a Strong Performer in this Wave," said George Mathew, president and COO of Alteryx. "We believe this report recognizes the importance of empowering analysts with both the data blending and advanced analytics that they can use, rather than relying on others in the organization. Putting predictive into the hands of the line of business is the future of the analytics market.
This year's Wave highlights the fact that "Predictive Analytics is Not Limited to Ph.D.-Level Data Scientists". The report specifically states that Alteryx "empowers businesspeople to quickly get their hands dirty in predictive." This approach, in Alteryx's opinion, has enabled Alteryx to be ranked 3rd in the Strategy Evaluation Criteria.
Forrester evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of 13 companies against 45 criteria reflecting the requirements of vendors of "big data" predictive analytics solutions. Among other factors, these criteria included current offering, strategy and market presence. According to Forrester, vendors in the Strong Performer category "have a sweet spot that make them excellent choices for enterprises."
