Leveraging Alteryx to Implement & Manage Juniper’s Snowflake Data Warehouse

Wed, Jun 12: 10:15am - 11:00am (45 Min) | Bayou E

At Juniper Networks, the Go-To-Market Analytics team uses the power of Alteryx to support and automate their finance and sales data analytics pipelines. But when the team’s original underlying file-based spreadmart began to crumble after creating dozens of production dashboards and analyses, they decided to combine the power of the Alteryx platform with the compute power, scalability and concurrency that Snowflake Computing has to offer for a winning analytics solution. In this session, you’ll learn how Juniper migrated workflows and data sources to Snowflake, and how they subsequently reduced cycle times by more than 90% by leveraging Alteryx Server with Snowflake. Through the use of Alteryx in-DB tools, the Alteryx ODBC connector, the Snowflake Bulk Loader, and a home-grown macro to execute SnowSQL from Alteryx Server, the Go-To-Market Analytics team is now delivering enhanced statistical models and Tableau data visualizations for leadership to make decisions in a timelier manner.

Run Alteryx Run: Using the Run Command to Automate Everything

Wed, Jun 12: 11:15am - 12:00pm (45 Min) | Presidential Ballroom A

While Alteryx challenges us to Alter Everything, at 84.51° we like to use Alteryx to Automate Everything. In this session, we will cover how our data scientists have extended Alteryx past its traditional toolset to provide full-service automation through command-line calls to Tableau Server, SAS, Oracle, Python, R, Microsoft Office, and more. By harnessing the power of the Run Command tool, we can leverage Alteryx for its strengths, like data wrangling, ordering screens, and scheduling, while using command-line utilities to supplement with heavy-lifting data queries and complex reporting. In addition to providing a technical overview of these capabilities, we will also touch on a couple of use cases that leverage these tools as well as show how we have standardized and socialized them as macros for the rest of our organization to use.

As a non-analyst, you probably have a favorite go-to tool for solving any problem. Historically, for me that tool was Perl but I quickly changed my tune and that go-to tool is now Alteryx. You’ll learn through concrete examples how as non-analysts we can speak the common language of analytics - Alteryx. You’ll see how Alteryx speaks 0x42696e617279, and how leveraging s/R3g3x/e/g cracks even the most obtuse, unstructured datasets.

Wed, Jun 12: 2:15pm - 3:00pm (45 Min) | Governor's Ballroom A,E

Before Alteryx, retail store testing was inaccurate, confusing, and time-consuming. The AB testing macros have enabled B&N to give business leaders rapid insights with a solid statistical foundation. This program will illustrate how B&N uses all of the testing macro tools to develop a complete test and learn workflow to manage analysis of retail store tests, including how we have overcome common issues such as creating one-sided statistical tests and unusual test timeframes. With the power of Alteryx AB testing, B&N can task a single analyst with managing dozens of tests simultaneously and provide extremely fast turnaround when executives need progress updates across a variety of aspects of the business, from store process improvements to new product and loyalty programs.

Tuning Up Your Process: Delta Record Processing

Wed, Jun 12: 2:15pm - 3:00pm (45 Min) | Bayou A,B

Every day, the analytic requirements of organizations grow at a rate never before seen in human history. These new requirements put immense pressure on an organization to add processes and ultimately, data to their ecosystem, oftentimes without a plan to tie this information back to a single point of reference. Sound familiar? Master Data Management is a process for utilizing existing relationships and building logical bridges where direct relationships don't exist to tie information from different sources together. In this session, learn how to identify logical gaps and use Alteryx to fill in those gaps with best practices to alleviate some of the pressures of memory intensive processes.

Small Wins: Organically Growing Automated Business Intelligence in Your Organization

Wed, Jun 12: 3:15pm - 4:00pm (45 Min) | Tennessee Ballroom D, E

Releasing analysts from the drudgery of operational and repetitive tasks can deliver better results for the business, and yet proving the initial ROI to the business to secure the resources needed to implement new tools is often the lynchpin to achieving greater success. At Intuit, rather than trying to move the entire company into automation wholesale, we started small with one analyst successfully automating over 20 hours a week of burdensome operational work, and then scaled her results across an entire analytics team, and ultimately across the global analytics organization. Using her initial small wins as a starting point, we organically grew a base of users who evangelized iron-proof use cases that ultimately broke through organizational red-tape, and established a robust business case demonstrating that Alteryx was a critical business necessity.

Taming a Blizzard of Spatial Data: American Dairy Queen’s Alteryx Success

Thu, Jun 13: 8:00am - 8:45am (45 Min) | Governor's Ballroom A,E

American Dairy Queen originally licensed Alteryx for a single, specific project. While exploring the capabilities of the software, we applied the Spatial tools to determine which of our vendors were closest to each of our locations. Converting the procedure to an Alteryx workflow changed a 4-person, 41,000-hour process into a single, repeatable workflow (the most current and optimized version of this workflow takes about 20 minutes to run). The time and resource savings were so considerable that it justified keeping Alteryx, even though this application was not a part of the original project! Since then, we have added many use cases and continue to optimize our current workflows. Join to hear about two of American Dairy Queen’s spatial use cases - vendor proximity and competitor duplication - and learn how their workflow building process has evolved.

Historically this effort was hampered by timely access to training data, complicated by irregular data collection and non-standard data fields. These issues led to lengthy reporting cycles, stale data and delays in meeting compliance goals. Learn how we created a comprehensive end-to-end approach to target, track and provide transparency into annual compliance training. Using Alteryx Designer and Server and Tableau, we have eliminated the fragmented and manual process, which took days per Health Care Compliance Office (HCCO) to produce a report. It is now centralized, automated and instantly available reporting process. The impact across each of our 100+ HCCO's has led to shorter compliance cycles, productive conversations with leadership and valuable insights.

How Trane Uses Alteryx to Accelerate Algorithm Development in Nexia Diagnostics

Thu, Jun 13: 10:00am - 10:45am (45 Min) | Presidential Ballroom A

Troubleshooting issues with an air conditioner is hard. Few people understand how an air conditioner works or what to do when things go wrong. Fortunately, the engineers at Trane, an Ingersoll Rand company, are experts in this matter. Unfortunately, these engineers have the challenge of capturing and relaying that expertise to their network of dealers and technicians in the field. Alteryx allows these engineers to 1) Put their knowledge into repeatable algorithms that can be applied across the entire customer base and 2) Interact directly with big-data datasets in a way that encourages innovation and novel approaches to problem-solving. Rather than be crippled by the time-intensive back-and-forth between engineers and software developers, Alteryx allows the engineers to interact directly with big data and deliver functionality to customers in real time. The team has demonstrated a 20x improvement in time to value with Alteryx.
