Movin' and Groovin': The Migratory Patterns of the Common Workflow

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

Alteryx Server version 2018.4 was the release of a series of endpoints to enable the automation of workflow deployments between Alteryx Server environments. While workflow migration is primarily intended to move workflows between development and production environments, these endpoints provide additional fringe benefits to administrators managing Alteryx Server. In a sense, workflows migrate. This session will provide you with practical ways to learn the basics of workflow migration and take away strategies to automate migration using Alteryx and R.

I Wanna Hold Your Hand... Through How (and Why) to Build a Nested Macro

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

Alteryx macros are a big step forward in the analytic journey for most analysts. After all, you can greatly expand your capabilities with macros.

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.

Hot in Here: Examining 100M Temperature Readings to Understand Global Warming

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

For the past 4 years, Alteryx and Tableau have been used to process and visualize global climate data. Many different descriptive analytical approaches were combined with interactive visualizations to examine the observed climate changes that have happened over time. This work was conducted to gain a better visual and quantitative understanding of global climate changes that have occurred. During this presentation, a new component of this work will be explained. Machine learning applications using Google Tensorflow or other R-based machine learning tools will be demonstrated that attempt to predict future temperature distributions at weather stations around the world. The goal of the presentation is to examine the ability of machine learning techniques to approximate future global climate changes. Video recordings of the Alteryx workflows that prepare the data for machine learning ingestion will be made available.
