Olivia Duane Adams (Libby) is the chief customer officer (CCO) and co-founder of Alteryx, and one of only a handful of female founders to take a technology company public, along with her founding counterparts, Dean Stoecker and Ned Harding. Libby’s vision and leadership in the creation of the world’s leading data science and analytics community is a key factor in the company’s 20+ year success. Under Libby’s leadership, the Alteryx Community has grown both on- and offline, serving as an incubator for the workforce of the future and empowering women in business via the Alteryx Women of Analytics initiative.

Libby spearheads the growth of the Alteryx Community as an engaging platform online as well as offline, with support for local and topic-focused user groups, launching what is known today as the Alteryx Inspire user conference and introducing the Alteryx ACE program.

Before co-founding Alteryx, Libby held various sales, customer, and marketing roles at Strategic Mapping, Donnelley, and VNU Business Media.

Wed, Oct 16: 11:15 - 12:00 (45 Min) | EM2

In this session, Allianz discusses their first year with Alteryx.

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

Wed, Oct 16: 13:30 - 14:15 (45 Min) | EM3

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.

Providing Finance Insight for the Enterprise

Wed, Oct 16: 14:30 - 15:15 (45 Min) | QS7

EDF Energy supplies around 5 million UK residential and business accounts with electricity or gas. Before switching to Alteryx, the finance team used a system based on Oracle SQL to calculate, analyze, and provide insight on their gross margin, but this limited transparency and created a long backlog that couldn’t keep up with demand. Alteryx enabled EDF Energy to write their own models and increase their speed of change and transparency. Learn how they recreated their calculations in 140 Alteryx workflows that every stakeholder could understand. Plus, discover how they created a production analytics finance system, mixing concepts from enterprise systems and self-serve analytics to create something with unprecedented agility.
