New Alteryx Release Expands Big Data Blending Capabilities

4/09/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


Combining data from multiple sources is one of the biggest challenges to bringing business analytics to a wider audience of business users. Alteryx this week debuted a new release of its data blending and advanced analytics software that enables greater data integration.

Alteryx Analytics 10.0 also offers expanded collaboration capabilities and new data visualization/user experience enhancements.

"This is all about making predictive analytics more accessible, not just for power users, but for everyday users," said Bob Laurent, Alteryx product and industry marketing director, in an interview.

The focus of the new 10.0 release is giving line-of-business analysts tools to access, blend and analyze data without assistance from data scientists or the IT department, Laurent said.

Alteryx Analytics 10.0 expands the software's ability to shift data blending and processing tasks into the database, rather than within a computer's memory, accelerating how quickly those tasks can be completed. Alteryx Analytics 9.5 provided those capabilities for Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases. The 10.0 release adds Amazon Redshift, Cloudera Impala, Spark and Teradata databases to the systems that Alteryx Analytics supports for in-database processing.

The latest release also provides connectors for additional data sources Alteryx Analytics can tap into for data blending tasks, including Cassandra, MongoDB and SAP Hana, plus the Marketo and Salesforce cloud applications.

The wide range of data sources supported by the Alteryx software is a key selling point, said Zack Mazzoncini, co-founder of Decisive Data, a Redmond, Wash.-based solution provider focused on business analytics around software from Alteryx and Tableau.
