And now for something completely different – Alteryx for everything except analytics

Wed, Oct 16: 13:15 - 14:00 (45 Min)

As an IT/Dev/QA/DevOps 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. In this session you’ll learn through concrete examples how as non-analysts we can still leverage the common language of analytics. You’ll see how Alteryx speaks 0x42696e617279, and how leveraging s/R3g3x/e/g cracks even the most obtuse, unstructured datasets. Most importantly, perhaps, you'll learn how Alteryx plays nicely with other systems, acting as an orchestrator and facilitating automation to create repeatable, dependable and testable processes.

Rather than concentrate on specific workflows, this session delves into how Allianz attempted to put controls and governance around how Alteryx was used. A critical part of this was their Alteryx Working Group that set standards for users to adhere to. Their great relationship with Alteryx was also important, as well as the benefits of the regular Key User Meeting sessions. This session takes a look at data quality, metadata management, and the integration of Alteryx with other technologies.

How to Analyze + Clean Your Data Before Advanced Analytics

Wed, Oct 16: TBD

Every 30 seconds, Roquette generates more than 1 million records of data. Such a large amount of data is prone to some abnormalities: micro-shutdowns from the network, "sick" sensors, etc. Find out how Roquette uses Alteryx to detect abnormal values and identify true or false positives. Then learn how the values confirmed as incorrect can be estimated as accurately as possible thanks to “on-the-fly” correlations analysis and how abnormal values can affect the robustness of machine learning algorithms. The more accurate your data, the more accurate your predictions!
