Alteryx Connect Unveiled – Enables Business Users to Find Curated Data Assets and Make Data-Driven Decisions Faster
Enhanced Alteryx Platform Delivers a True End-to-End, Self-Service Analytics Experience from Data Cataloging to Data Preparation and Data Science
Las Vegas, NV — June 6, 2017 — Inspire 2017 – Alteryx, Inc., (NYSE: AYX) a leader in self-service data analytics, today announced Alteryx Connect, a data exploration platform that empowers users to discover and collaborate on data assets, visualizations, reports and workflows typically siloed across large enterprises. With Alteryx Connect, users can easily find curated data and relevant information from both Alteryx-connected data and other data sources – ultimately decreasing time to insight.
As organizations become more data-driven, it is critical for business analysts performing self-service data analytics to use governed and trusted data sources. With Alteryx Connect, organizations can capture the tribal knowledge about data that has spread across an organization and present this knowledge back to business users so they can begin the analytics process using the best sources of information. When available, Alteryx Connect will be an add-on to the Alteryx Server product. This is an outgrowth of the Alteryx acquisition of Semanta earlier this year, which specialized in meta data management and governance.
"With Alteryx Connect, we're bringing more of the thrill of discovery to analytics, truly merging the human experience with analytic models to help organizations make smarter decisions," said Alteryx CEO Dean Stoecker. "While automation has brought efficiencies to industries for hundreds of years, people drive innovation. We are creating this offering to better enable analysts to connect with colleagues within their own ecosystem and reduce the time spent searching for relevant data in a vast sea of disparate sources."
"We founded Semanta to make finding and accessing the information that is critical to driving business decisions as simple as possible," stated Tomas Barta, founder of Semanta and now vice president, Smart Data Discovery at Alteryx. "The work we've been able to do as part of the Alteryx platform enhances the analytics journey and brings a more engaging analytics experience."
Alteryx Connect will extend the Alteryx data prep and analytics capabilities by allowing users to:
- Share and collaborate on information within the organization, maximizing existing and trusted assets and understanding past use and lineage
- Discover the full breadth of the analytic process, including data, apps, visualizations and dashboards
- Create organizational standards around where users can find, share and collaborate on data
- Minimize duplicate efforts and dramatically accelerate time-to-insight by reducing the time required to search for the best data
"Billigence works with companies around the world regarding their modern analytics needs, and daily we see data analysts struggling to get the most relevant data sets for their analytics workflow," said Jana Kapr, CEO of Billigence, an Alteryx partner. "The ability to leverage data that has been assessed and evaluated by colleagues through Alteryx Connect, provides more trust and collaboration and dramatically increases the speed that organizations can get insights and be more effective for their business."
Alteryx Connect is expected to be available in fall of 2017. More information can be found at https://www.alteryx.com/products/alteryx-connect.
