Irvine, Calif., October 8, 2012 - Alteryx, Inc., the leading provider of Strategic Analytics software, today announced Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.0, which includes the Alteryx Analytics Gallery, a pioneering cloud service that combines sophisticated analytics with a social enterprise experience. The enhancements to the Alteryx 8.0 platform will continue to empower Data Artisans - the business and data analysts in every organization - to Humanize Big Data, enabling them to drive informed strategic decision-making.
"Traditional analytics platform vendors think that cloud analytics means hosting their difficult-to-use and costly solutions in a public cloud, putting huge constraints on the potential for Big Data and analytics to unleash creativity," said George Mathew, president and chief operating officer, Alteryx. "The Alteryx Analytics Gallery is the first analytics cloud platform to recognize that business decision makers expect their business applications to be as engaging as the apps they use at home. This release is a disrupting force that delivers a powerful, consumer-based analytics experience enabling organizations to get to the value of Big Data exponentially faster."
The Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.0 platform:
- Leads the Consumerization of Big Data - The Alteryx Analytics Gallery allows users to instantly access, share, and curate collections of applications, similar to modern consumer Web experiences. Alteryx also makes it easier for decision makers to engage in advanced analysis with five new drag-and-drop predictive analytics tools focused on Time Series functions.
- Provides the Fastest Way to Design and Publish Analytic Applications - Alteryx enables fast, single-click publishing to public or private clouds, community sharing of best practices and a new scheduler to automate the delivery of sophisticated analytics.
- Utilizes All the Relevant Data - By adding a new Salesforce.com connector, Alteryx is the only analytics solution with the ability to integrate Cloud application data with Big Data, spreadsheets, databases, packaged content and social media sources.
The Alteryx Analytics Gallery will be released with more than 30 proven analytic applications that are free to use and download by anyone, kick-starting the ability for organizations to answer strategic business questions. Rather than provide simple analytics for a single data source, these best practice applications help answer the big questions that drive organizational performance across a number of industries including Retail, Communications, and Marketing Services. Best practice applications are also available for functions such as sales, marketing, real estate, and finance.
Anyone can access and use these applications today at gallery.alteryx.com.
