Predictive Modeling Begins with Better Data Preparation

Predictive modeling can be tough to implement in itself. Additionally, increasing data types and sources are making the data preparation process more complex too; and while predictive modeling can deliver substantial business gains, it can also wreak havoc if the data used for analysis is not accurate or complete. In this session learn how to assess the quality of your data, cleanse and prepare data for analysis, decide what predictive modeling techniques to use.

Breaking Down Analytic Silos with Alteryx Server

As sharing workflows across analytic groups becomes the norm, streamlining and building analytics hubs of excellence is becoming more important than ever. This session presents best practice solutions for sharing, collaborating, and ensuring version control over workflows in order to break down analytic insight silos.

How to Process and Visualise Data in the Cloud

Being successful in the analytics space today depends, among other factors, on effectively leveraging data in cloud enterprise applications for processing and visualisation. This talk will cover popular use cases drawn from data analysts and IT users. We will demo several cloud connectors (Adobe Analytics, Google Sheets, Salesforce, etc) and showcase new integration capabilities with Tableau and Microsoft.

Alteryx Tips and Tricks I & II: Tools You Shouldn't Live Without & Explore the Unexplored

Designed for all user levels of Alteryx, this tips and tricks session will help you make the most of Alteryx Designer. Learn where to go for information when you're stuck, what tools can help you optimise your workflow, what tools you just shouldn't live without, and which underutilized tools that can save you precious time. Also, explore the latest tools in Alteryx Analytics

In-Database Blending & Analytics For Scale

The volume of data is growing exponentially and it's now the norm to store it all. With the new in-database tools, Alteryx once again innovates to put advanced in-database blending and analytic capabilities into the hands of analysts and decision makers. In this session, you will learn about the in-database tools: what they are, in what context you'll want to use them, and how they work.

Amend Information Gaps with Market & Demographic Data

Discover how demographic, firmographic, household, and segmentation data combined with Alteryx can augment your analytic insights. Hear use cases and learn about combining internal data with third-party data from leading providers such as Experian, Dun & Bradstreet and TomTom, to deliver a comprehensive analytic view.

Location and Spatial Analytic Intelligence: Adding Another Level to Your Insights

Most data has some aspect of location information to give it relevance. The integration of location and spatial analytics allows analysts and decision-makers access to patterns and insights not available through a typical analytics process alone. Learn how to uncover and use spatial elements in your data to uncover trends, patterns, and relationships that aren't obvious in databases and spreadsheets. In this session we'll do a review of the tools available and highlight use cases to help you make the most of the location information in your data.

Analytic Tipping Point: When and How to Scale Out Alteryx

Are you evaluating how to scale out Alteryx in your organisation? How do you know when you have reached the analytic tipping point? This session will discuss best practices on when and how to scale out Alteryx in your organisation, and offer insight into best practices that will help you bridge the conversation gap with IT or other departments when that tipping point arises.

Data Blending Best Practices & Developments

As greater volumes and types of data become necessary for analysts to make critical business decisions, building streamlined applications for data prep, blending, and visualisation is now more important than ever. This session presents best practice solutions for three main components of data preparation and blending: handling data sources, building efficient workflows, and conducting data exploration. We'll show you how users can optimise each of these components within Alteryx and avoid data analysis errors, thereby saving valuable time in the decision-making process.

Operationalise and Automatically Refresh Your Analytics

Get out of the business of being the analytic reporting bottle neck. Spend less time refreshing and maintaining and more time analysing, exploring and expanding your insights. Autonomously expand your analytic reports without coding or dependencies on other departments. Learn how to run jobs in sequence, and easily adjust them on the fly when things change. Hear how Alteryx uses Alteryx to sustain day-to-day business processes and eliminate repetitive tasks.

REST APIs and Alteryx for Online Data and Metrics

Take your data analytics to the next level by incorporating data from the web using the Download Tool in Alteryx. This session will include tips and tricks on how to get started connecting to and joining a variety of data sources and using them in your workflow to develop deeper insights.

Getting Started with Alteryx Designer (Beginner)

This class is appropriate for anyone working with data regardless of their analytical background. Through lecture and follow-along exercises, you will learn the building blocks required to complete more complex analytical tasks with Alteryx Designer. You'll gain a thorough understanding of important concepts that enable you to prepare, parse, blend, transform, and analyze data from disparate sources and output your results.

You'll learn how to: Understand Alteryx Designer terminology; connect to and update data sources; save workflows; order and sample records; change datatypes and rename fields; blend, parse, filter and aggregate data; build expressions; and output data to different file formats.

Understanding Alteryx Server (Beginner)

This session is intended to provide an overview of the Alteryx Server and architecture as well as best practices and advice for implementing and scaling your Alteryx Server environment.

You'll learn how to: identify components that make up the Server architecture; assess scaling needs; make decisions about how and when to scale the Alteryx Server environment.

Getting More Out of Parsing (Beginner)

This session is designed to teach data analysts how to apply the best strategies to data parsing in Alteryx based on the patterns and structure of your data.

In this class, you'll learn how to: Take unstructured as well as semi-structured data and prepare it for analytics using Text to Columns tool; parse more complex datasets using the Input Data Tool and Date Time Parse; utilize other important parsing tools such as Formula and the Multi-Row Formula Tool as they relate to parsing.

Introduction to Applications and Macros (Intermediate)

This session is designed for data analysts who are already comfortable building workflows and have completed the Alteryx Getting Started and Getting Started with Parsing courses (or are familiar with those concepts). In this class you'll learn the fundamental concepts of how to create Analytic Applications and Macros (tools).

In the first half of this class, you'll convert an existing workflow into an Alteryx Analytic Application by constructing a graphical user interface (GUI) so that users can easily set the required parameters and run the workflow. When uploaded to the Alteryx Gallery, Apps allow users without Designer to run the workflow and access the results.
