Automation to actionable insights, faster
With the emergence of APA platforms like Alteryx, organizations can leverage capabilities that are data agnostic and with an ability to ingest and handle data found in multiple formats and in varying degrees of quality. This operational automation streamlines data prep and blend, descriptive analytics, and diagnostic reporting.
Building upon this, organizations can benefit from more strategic automation that enables every level of data worker, regardless of their technical acumen, to create additional value through the ability to leverage geospatial, predictive, and ML based analytics. With the ability to create and push actionable insights out to a multitude of reporting and visualization platforms, APIs and even edge devices provide organizations like the DoD a strategic and unified analytics capability that will not fall victim to “proprietary.”
According to Gartner, an analytic platform should be assessed in terms of the learning curve, performance in various use cases, and the ability to support the deployment of advanced analytics capabilities within the deployed workforce. Capable analytics platforms should be able to extensively leverage the skills, expertise, and domain knowledge of existing data workers.
By doing this, truly transformative results can be realized as existing data teams can add significantly more analytics value as they are freed up from the drudgery of manual processes through process automation and the no code availability of advanced analytics. In other words, an APA platform like Alteryx provides a guided, smart approach to elevating existing data resources through augmented data preparation, augmented data discovery, and augmented data science across the analytics pipeline.
A unified approach drives measurable value
A unified platform approach accelerates automation, enables the entire analytics life cycle (from prep and blend to predictive analytics and beyond), and focuses on upskilling existing resources, providing more value to organizations.
While data preparation is the foundation of any analytics effort, the question is what is the data preparation for? What’s next? Data preparation alone does not complete the analytics lifecycle. What can a unified analytics platform provide? In short, APA platforms deliver an end-to-end analytic experience, from data to insight, sharing and decision-making in one solution, which provides more operational and strategic value.
APA platforms like Alteryx shorten the time to insight and helps solve business problems faced by dynamic organizations like the DoD.
While Alteryx can be used by data engineers to build data pipelines and models, the platform is just as accessible for business analysts to help solve critical business problems and share insight all the way out to the operational edge. Alteryx can address any data preparation use case, from the simplest to the most sophisticated but also offers higher level analytic capabilities to either solve a known business problem or unveil something during investigation. But far beyond data prep, the Alteryx platform, which includes Alteryx Designer, Alteryx Intelligence Suite, Alteryx Server, Alteryx Connect, and Alteryx Promote, provides a unified environment for workflow automation, scheduling, collaboration, and sharing of data assets and insights.
We salute the DoD’s commitment to building a data centric environment. At Alteryx, our focus is to create a unified platform that aligns the critical elements of data, process automation, and the upskilling of resources to drive business value. Building upon a robust, open, and agnostic data prep capability, the Alteryx platform creates the level of data agility desired by the DoD to avoid proprietary lock, build analytic capability, upskill data resources, and provide the future interoperability needed to accelerate mission outcomes.
