Transforming Marketing Into a Data-Driven, Analytic Culture
with Alteryx and Tableau

In complex modern organizations, marketing is a function performed by multiple teams and agencies across many channels, often in pursuit of the same customer. In this session, learn how JPMorgan Chase is leveraging Alteryx to break down organizational silos to unify disparate marketing data sources and deliver comprehensive insights on customers and campaign performance via Tableau dashboards to business leaders. Jason will share how Alteryx is empowering his team of marketing analysts with capabilities that would take traditional IT projects months or years to deliver by helping them rapidly blend data from multiple source systems to develop a cross-channel holistic customer view and deliver actionable insights to marketers in hours or days. Topics covered include using Alteryx with big data platforms, automating data preparation, enabling data discovery and rapid development in your team, optimizing data for Tableau, and using Alteryx to improve existing data processes and fostering a culture of analytics.

Election 2016: Practical Applications of Data in Electoral Politics

2016 is a data-rich environment. In the political arena, campaigns, and the companies that support campaigns, deal with an ever-growing list of data to manage; publicly available data sources, like voter files from secretaries of state, and advertising information from the Federal Communication Commission; and commercially available data, like the Experian data bundle through Alteryx, ad occurrence data and set-top box data to track TV consumption behavior. Additionally, there are data sets created by campaigns by knocking on doors, calling voters, sending emails, and delivering ads. The more sophisticated political campaigns leverage predictive modeling to project voter turnout and predict vote choice. But to do that, they must first build complex data blending workflows to turn a variety of unlinked data sources into a single, actionable database of information. Then only can they decide which voters to talk to, with what message and through which media.

Chick-fil-A: Scaling Analytic Insights for Organizational Growth

Chick-fil-A has experienced rapid organizational growth, recently becoming the largest Chicken Restaurant in the US. At the same time, the systems and processes needed to scale that growth have had to keep pace. In the last 6 months, Chick-fil-A has begun using Alteryx and Alteryx Server across the organization to tackle data and analytics challenges such as Loyalty Program Analytics and Sales Tax Regulatory Filings. Some of the common applications include advanced processing in Amazon Web Services' Redshift, creating well-structured data for Tableau dashboards, and rapid and repeatable deployment of analytics workflows. Matt Burton and Justin Winter will share some of the use cases and the organizational value created through Alteryx.

Self-Service Analytics: Enabling Transformational Change

Ford Motor Company was no different when it came to experiencing the challenge of combining myriad legacy technologies with the power of new analytic tools to solve company's data and analytic problems. Join this session to hear how Ford changed the conversation to create an analytic ecosystem to enable transformational change across the enterprise. Alan Jacobson, Director of Global Data Insight & Analytics, and Patricia Small, Descriptive Analytics Supervisor will discuss: the need for raising data and analytic literacy; building ecosystems that can integrate tools, and technologies and talent; the ability to visualize the data to drive action in the business.

Data Blending in Alteryx for the Ultimate Home Entertainment Solution

As the home entertainment industry has fragmented to represent more than just the sale of DVDs, the need to coalesce data from disparate sources has grown stronger. The effort to maximize the return from each title requires examining how different film titles fare on various platforms. To adjust marketing and launch strategies for maximum return, Eric's team needs to merge and analyze data such as: theatrical box office collection, sell-through and rental performance, critic and audience reviews, genre, stars, pricing, circular placement, seasonality, and more. In this presentation, Eric will share examples of how Sony Pictures is using Alteryx to prepare and blend multiple data sources to foster powerful and impactful decision-making.

Southwest Airlines: Empowering Data Users into Data Warriors
with Self-Service Analytics

In this session join Southwest Airlines, the nation's largest carrier of domestic passengers, to hear how it is adopting Alteryx to achieve its goal of becoming a data-driven organization. Tom Laney and Preethi Elango, Business Analysts for Southwest Airlines will share how the company is empowering users with Alteryx to exercise their "warrior spirit" with self-serving data. They will also talk about their team Enterprise Data Strategy and their roles as Self-Service Leads within the enterprise. Presenters will discuss the current data gaps facing the company and how Alteryx is helping fill them out as well as share interesting stories of how the company is using Alteryx across different functions for solving specific business problems.

Idea to Insight: How Western Union Built a Security Analytics Program
from the Ground Up Using Alteryx

In 2015, Western Union set out to gain visibility into the information security measures implemented at each Agent Location around the world. Erik Miller was tasked in building out a program designed to analyze each location, utilizing fraud data, terminal/computer information, and transactional information. With over 500,000 locations, the task was not simple. Totaling well over 4 million records from 5 different systems, the process initially took over 100 hours per month, making it unsustainable. Using Alteryx, Erik was able to take a 100 hour process and turn it into a 5 ½ minute workflow, with only a 2 ½ hours development timeframe. Now leading a team of analysts, Erik is taking the project forward to develop a strategic security analytics program designed to assess the risks posed to Western Union by malicious insiders, hackers, and uninformed users. In this session, Erik will cover how with Alteryx at the core, the Security Analytics team is building out an extensive risk analytics program covering multiple threat vectors across Western Union's environment. He will also share why Alteryx has become the must have tool at the center of this team's success.

Hyatt Corporation: Driving Market Penetration with Data Analytics

When corporate sales are a major chunk of your revenue mix, how do you increase market share in a highly competitive hospitality industry? Join Alteryx and Hyatt Corporation to hear how one of the leading international hotel operators is using analytics to identify and target its most profitable clients and expand relationships and share of business. Hear SriHari Thotapalli, Director of Customer Data Management share how his group in the Global Operations Center is leveraging spend data, purchase behavior, and preferences of its corporate clients to empower Hyatt's global sales force with a 360-degree customer view, identify cross-sell/upsell opportunities, and target "like" customers to increase profitability.

Driving Physician Launch Targeting with New Product Introduction at
ZS Pharma, a Division of Astra Zeneca

When introducing a new product in a therapeutic area that is currently underserved, and given the highly regulated nature of healthcare, physician segmentation and targeting allow for hyper-focused sales and marketing messaging to drive product adoption and revenue. By analyzing physician attributes around product and therapy needs, prescribing behavior, and market access constraints, we have the ability to tailor our promotional efforts to our most valuable target customers. Predictive analytics help us fill in the gaps in the absence of a suitable surrogate in a market that is yet to be clearly established.

Improving Avian Influenza Emergency Response with Alteryx

In 2015, the United States poultry industry experienced an outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), affecting 15 states and costing the industry an estimated $1.6 billion. As part of the response, Veterinary Services supplied maps and epidemiological analytics to people in the field, trade partners, and other officials. The level of support needed would have been impossible without automating many processes. In this session, you will hear how Alteryx helped support the outbreak response by automating many time-consuming data management and analytical tasks. We will highlight the tools and techniques used that helped simplify what would have been an almost impossible task to deliver and accommodate response areas: weekly mapping, epidemiological analyses, and ad-hoc data management and analytical requests.

Drive Inspiration from Alteryx to Achieve your Career Aspirations

Can a software application alter how you see the world, how you problem solve and what you can achieve as person, professional or a company? Over his 23 year career, Jed Klink has been focused on retail site selection, real estate strategy and analytics. However, after introducing Alteryx to McDonald's over 6 years ago, Jed's capabilities and productivity have dramatically grown and enabled him to broaden his knowledge and influence in many other areas of the company. Join this session to learn not only how Alteryx has been leveraged to help McDonald's Restaurant Development but also how it has impacted Jed's professional and personal growth.

Transforming a Mountain into a Molehill: Alteryx Self-Service Analytics
and Tableau Visualization

In large companies, disparate data is the norm, not the exception. See how Charles Schwab uses Alteryx to convert long days of data manipulation into minutes, and hours of laborious work into seconds. In this session, you'll see how Alteryx is used to process massive amounts of disparate data through a workflow that fuels a Tableau dashboard, empowering users from executive leadership to front end staff to visually navigate their data with ease and fluidity. It took all of 16 hours from start to finish to launch the first of many amazing creations we've come up with at Schwab! You'll leave this session feeling passionately inquisitive and creatively inspired to start your own Alteryx journey.

Becoming More Personal Through Social Data and Alteryx

When people think of social media, they don't equate that to sales. This session focuses on how Kaiser Permanente are using Alteryx to access Twitter data to cleanse, parse, process, and export the most desired data automatically into Salesforce.com. This combination is allowing the business to make better informed decisions, reach customers more personally, and ultimately transform the way they do business. This process combined with the reporting capabilities in Alteryx has reduced the process from days and weeks to hours, leaving more time for data investigation and exploration.

No Customers, No Sales, No Stores... Doesn't Mean No Data!
Alteryx Use Cases in Philanthropy

Though still early in its Alteryx experience, there are already a broad range of applications in both operations and programmatic areas of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. From estimating the investment in digital by analyzing grant and strategy documents, to aggregating budget documents for reporting, to segmenting Nigerian respondents to a survey on attitudes about the use of modern contraceptives. Attend this session and learn how Alteryx is eliminating manual work and opening new opportunities for collaboration at the foundation.

Improving Capacity and Financial Planning — A Guide to Business Forecasting with Alteryx

Alteryx provides a variety of tools for making predictions about the future; including classical regression methods, machine learning algorithms, and time series analysis. The Capital Group leverages predictive analytics in Alteryx to develop models to help identify which variables can be used to accurately predict work and business volumes. These forecasts are then used for capacity and financial planning. One of the key decisions that analysts must make is choosing the right technique for the job. This session will not only highlight what the Capital Group is doing around Time Series Forecasting, but will also provide attendees the knowledge and considerations requirements need to start to implement forecasting applications on their own. This session will highlight key forecasting methods available in Alteryx, and the details behind the forecasting process. Using a story-telling approach with minimal mathematics, we will journey through the history of forecasting and explore how key statistical lessons from history are automatically incorporated into the algorithms within Alteryx.

Risk Scores and Patient Panel Sizes: Predictive Analytics in Primary Care

Healthcare is rapidly changing. Fee-for-service will soon be a thing of the past and "patient outcomes" and "population management" are the new buzzwords. In this environment, agility is a must. While large-scale hospital systems usually make the analytics headlines, smaller primary-care organizations increasingly need nimble and predictive data solutions, too. Mosaic Medical is a community health center system with ~20,000 patients that has embraced Alteryx and Tableau as their analytic software solutions. This session highlights how Mosaic uses Alteryx to combine multiple sources of data (containing demographics, chronic diseases, lab results and more) to develop patient risk scores. This allows them to tailor patients' treatment plan to their unique needs and balance providers' patient volume based on their patients' complexity. Other details to be discussed include: null-value treatment, model types (regression, random forest, etc.), and implementation challenges.

Sally Beauty: Using Data for Quantitative Marketing and CRM Enablement

Sally Beauty is leveraging Alteryx and Tableau to gain customer insights, power CRM programs, and provide reporting to all levels of the organization.
