Alteryx BUILD (Hackathon)

Alteryx BUILD is our inaugural day-long hackathon. Spend Monday working by yourself or with a team on a project that leverages the Alteryx code free and code friendly platform. You'll have the opportunity to treat the day as a learning experience by collaborating with Alteryx developers and experts to bring your project vision to life. You will also get the chance to compete for prizes by submitting your project to judges at the end of the day on Monday. You choose your project — for example:

  • Create a data science tool by building an R-based macro
  • Build a connector to a web API with the Download tool or use one of our SDKs, like Python and HTML
  • Embed Alteryx analytics into an app by leveraging the Server API
  • Dedicate the day to support one of our Alteryx for Good projects

More details will come — in the meantime, start thinking about what you want to BUILD!

Paradigm Shift with a Platform: Using the Alteryx HTML SDK with Bloomberg API

The most exciting Alteryx project that Rosenblatt Securities has done this year was to create an Alteryx Bloomberg Connector, using the HTML SDK. This session explores how viewing Alteryx as an end-to-end analytics platform resulted in the construction and use of a custom connector that the team has leveraged to remove spreadsheets from the company's processes entirely. Now the team at Rosenblatt Securities gets more done in less time and less clicks. An important change can happen when your usual way of thinking about your problem or process is replaced by a new and different way. What endless possibilities are out there for you? Learn about how Rosenblatt Securities Alters.Alteryx, and uncover how you can change the way you work.

Less of the Menial and More of the Meaningful at BCBS NC

The Operational Analytics team at Blue Cross NC was tired of spending significant time and resources fulfilling ad-hoc data requests, and decided to take action. Building Alteryx workflows and deploying them as analytic apps, within 10 months they reduced ad-hoc requests by 80%, and dropped wait times from 17 business days to minutes. Legal and Compliance teams can now pull their own data for claim audits, and sales consultants are able to quickly resolve issues to aid in member retention, in an on-demand, controlled environment. The team is now focusing on higher level analytics projects, using Alteryx to create data driven metrics for staffing models with In-DB tools and predicting manual claims inventory.

Advanced Analytics in Alteryx for Disaster Response

Following Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) needed to rapidly assess damage to a minimum of 130,000 structures in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Extremely challenging conditions like blocked roadways and landslides made traditional field assessments slow and difficult. Additionally, the assessment had to include the effects of combined wind and flood damage from two distinct, but consecutive hurricanes. After the storm, teams visited 600+ structures and took detailed measurements to serve as training data for a damage model; and analytic teams built an Alteryx workflow blending over a dozen GIS and tabular data sets to serve as predictive variables. The model was updated and revised daily to improve the quality of the prediction. Join this session to learn how these structures were assessed with Alteryx, saving thousands of hours of field work, and expediting recovery and reconstruction efforts.

Alternatives to Regression: Decision Trees for Improved Member Targeting

AAA wanted to improve the efficiency of its marketing and target members who were more likely to be active. They initially explored regression analysis, which did not provide good results because of the nature of the data. After exploring other kinds of regression models, they settled on decision trees as the most effective predictive approach. Join this session and learn how to most effectively select a predictive approach that works best with your data, how to interpret your results, and how to go through the predictive process to tell a better, more useful story to the organization. You'll also learn how decision trees can be coupled with member lifetime value to stratify purchasing decisions, how you can incorporate geographic marketing purchases/spend or direct mail, and how AAA is using decision trees to better identify geo-demographics niches of interest and purchase mass media to reach those people.

Predictive Logistics: Toyota's Leadership in Predictive Analytics Excellence

Companies often lack value-added insight from logistics data. And in the competitive and rapid-fire-pace of the automotive industry, deploying logistics that only utilize backward-looking data doesn't deliver any competitive advantages. Enter "Predictive Logistics." Toyota is fusing the logistics of parts, labor, location, and customer data with advanced predictive analytics in order to accurately forecast and optimize:

  • Labor usage
  • Ordering of parts for all Toyota distribution centers
  • Transport of parts from warehouses to dealerships

Dynamic What-If Forecast Models are run monthly via machine learning-based predictive algorithms — which improved the accuracy of prior forecasts for all distribution centers by a factor of 3X. From headquarters to 11 warehouse divisions, all insights are shared across the organization. Join us for a "predictive-logistics deep dive demo" of how Alteryx is exponentially increasing Toyota's operational efficiency, optimizing resource usage, and ultimately, maximizing profits with predictive logistics.
