We are reviving the spotlight blog series for our ACEs who have joined us in the past two years. Subscribe to the Alter.Nation blog so you don't miss an article!

 

Today’s ACE spotlight is @messi007! Keep reading to learn more about Mokhtar and what makes him a unique Alteryx super user.

 

Tell us a bit about your professional background. 

 

At the beginning of my career, I was a Tableau Consultant until, one day, my manager asked me to look at Alteryx. Since then, I have become an Alteryx developer and have been working with it daily for nearly seven years.

 

What is your favorite Alteryx tool, and why? 

 

My favorite Alteryx tool is the Union tool because I love its DNA icon. As a manager, one of my key roles is to bring my team together 😊

 

What has been your favorite Alteryx project? Can you tell us about the business problem you solved?

 

My favorite project is my first one with Alteryx, which was for Anacredit. This dataset contained detailed information on individual bank loans in the euro area. My main task was to develop workflows to extract and clean the data, ensuring the delivery of the required information to the regulator. I particularly enjoyed this project because it helped me learn a lot about both Alteryx Desktop and Alteryx Server. Additionally, this project included my first server installation.

 

What advice do you have for new community members?

 

Don't be afraid to ask questions or seek help. There will always be someone willing to assist you.

 

What is your favorite way to engage as an ACE? Also, what area of the online community do you spend the most time in?

 

I co-lead the Paris Alteryx User Group. I write blogs for the French Community and promote Alteryx on LinkedIn. I spend most of my time writing blogs or answering questions.

 

What discussion topic(s) could Community members tag you in for help?

 

Alteryx Server, parsing, and transforming tools.

 

What is one fun thing about you that community members might not know? 

 

I love bungee jumping; the rush of adrenaline when jumping off a bridge is unbeatable.

Besides that, I find immense joy in nurturing and growing plants.
