Alteryx Analytics Excellence Awards Launches with $100,000 for Charity Prizes

Irvine, Calif., March 9, 2016 — Alteryx, Inc., the leader in self-service data analytics, today announced the Alteryx Analytics Excellence Awards to recognize the outstanding achievements of Alteryx users and promote community philanthropy through a $100,000 charitable donation program. Users can submit their analytic stories in eight different categories focused on how they have been empowered to prepare, blend and analyze data to gain business insight. Alteryx will make donations on the winners’ behalf to charities selected by the winners.

“We want to celebrate Alteryx users who have a big impact on the lives of others with the analytical work that they do every day and amplify that impact through the Alteryx For Good program,” said Brian Oblinger, vice president of community and social content at Alteryx, Inc. “Our individual stories of success are impressive, and we want to write an even bigger success story – one where we come together as analysts to serve the greater good in the communities in which we work and live. We are honored to join in this cause with our users.”

Beginning this week, business analysts and other Alteryx users can submit their stories for award consideration. Alteryx will feature the stories on its Alteryx Community site in late April with winners being selected in May by a panel of Alteryx judges and then officially announced in June at the Alteryx Inspire 2016 event in San Diego, California.
