Alteryx vs Traditional Analytics Tools

Deciding on which automation tool to use can be tricky. You need a tool that is easy to use, integrates well with your existing systems and has a strong track record of success. Having used Alteryx within an organisation, we have seen first hand the benefits it can bring and the advantages it offers over other traditional analytical tools. We’ve summarised our reasons why we believe Alteryx is the best tool for automation.

  • User-friendly interface: Alteryx has a user-friendly interface that allows non-technical users to easily build workflows and perform data analytics. This is in contrast to traditional analytics tools which require specialised technical knowledge to use. We find that the less technical approach certainly helps to speed up the rollout of Alteryx and get lots of departments within an organisation using the tool.
  • Automation capabilities: Alteryx has powerful automation capabilities that allow business to automate repetitive tasks, such as data cleansing and data integration. This can save businesses a significant amount of time and resources compared to traditional analytics tools.
  • Integration with other tools: Alteryx can integrate with other tools, such as Tableau and Excel, making it a valuable addition to a business’s analytics toolkit. Traditional analytics tools may not have this level of integration, making it more difficult for businesses to use them in conjunction with other tools.
  • Cost-effective: Alteryx is a cost-effective option, compared to many traditional analytics tools. It can be licensed on per-user basis, allowing businesses to choose how many people they train and how many licenses are needed.
  • Speed : Alteryx can process large amounts of data quickly, making it an ideal choice for businesses that need to analyse and process data in real-time. Traditional analytics tools may struggle to keep up with the speed and volume of data that Alteryx can handle.
  • Ease of collaboration : Alteryx allows multiple users to collaborate on workflows and share data easily. This can improve productivity and collaboration compared to traditional analytics tools, where this can be manual.

Alteryx stands out from traditional data analytics tools in many ways, making it a superior choice for many businesses looking to improve their data analytics capabilities and automation.
