Tuning up Your Process: Delta Record Processing

Every day, the analytic requirements of organizations grow at a rate never before seen. These new requirements put immense pressure on organizations to add processes, and ultimately data, to their ecosystems, 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 separated information together. In this session, learn how to identify logical gaps and use Alteryx to fill those gaps to alleviate some of the pressure of memory-intensive processes.

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

For the past four years, Alteryx and Tableau have been used to process and visualize global climate data. This work has been documented on the site: Climate Change Quantified. 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 is explained. A detailed examination of temporal temperature changes at over 5,200 monitoring stations was conducted each day of the year. What this means is that nearly 2 million trend models were computed to quantify changes in temperature across 60 years. The results were used to understand the temporal and spatial temperature changes that have occurred worldwide. The goal of this presentation is to explain global climate change as documented by using historical temperature records. Video recordings of the Alteryx workflows developed to complete this work will be available.

Small Wins: Organically Growing Automated Business Intelligence in Your Organization

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 linchpin to achieving greater success. At Intuit, rather than trying to move the entire company into automation wholesale, they 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, they organically grew a base of users who evangelized iron-proof use cases that 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

American Dairy Queen originally licensed Alteryx for a single, specific project. While exploring the capabilities of the software, they applied spatial tools to determine which of their vendors were closest to each of their locations. Converting the procedure to an Alteryx workflow changed a four-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, they have added many use cases and continue to optimize their 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.

Training Compliance: Targeting, Tracking, and Reporting at Johnson & Johnson

At Johnson & Johnson, health care compliance training is not just something they talk about; it's a fundamental element of their compliance program. Ensuring they are meeting targets is a key success goal for the organization. Historically, this effort was hampered by timely access to training data and 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 they created a comprehensive end-to-end approach to target, track, and provide transparency into annual compliance training. Using Alteryx Designer, Server, and Tableau, Johnson & Johnson eliminated the fragmented and manual process, which took days for the Health Care Compliance Office (HCCO) to produce a report. It's now a centralized, automated, and instantly available reporting process. The impact across each of their 100-plus HCCO's has led to shorter compliance cycles, productive conversations with leadership, and valuable insights.
