Community news, customer stories, and more!

We are excited to announce that our SparkED team was a finalist for the 2022 Khoros Engagement for Good Award! 




Here is an excerpt from the SparkED team’s submission for the award: 


Alteryx SparkED is aligned in both mission and the company values on empowering the next generation of data workers to address the global skills gap in data analytics. 


The SparkED program empowers all learners, across all areas of study, to develop the skills they need to question, understand, and solve with data. Through this program, learners are provided free Alteryx Designer licenses, learning resources, and access to career opportunities aligned to their data analytics skill set. With custom Community boards for SparkED, these users have access to onboarding resources, dedicated discussion boards for students, educators, and career changers, and a job board that provides opportunities for internships and analytics roles. 


Through Community/the Khoros platform, Educators have the option of joining a private Educator board, where they can collaborate, network, and share curricular resources with other educators across the globe. Students and our scholarship recipients can participate in the Student board discussions, where they can work with each other to solve problems. Career Changers can also participate in discussions and mentorship events designed to help them upskill and reskill themselves so they can go after roles they may have previously been looked over for. All of these boards also drive traffic to the Alteryx Academy, where all learners have the same free access as our general Community users to learn the Alteryx platform and obtain industry-recognized certifications. 


The SparkED program aims to reach 1 million users by the end of 2025 – and we are well on our way.  Currently, we have over 130,000 learners from over 45 countries participating in this program – and we are aiming to make sure all of those are leveraging the Alteryx Community to develop their skills in data analytics. 


Check out the SparkED page on Community to see all the good work they continue to do for the benefit of educators, students, and career changers.  


Congratulations again to the SparkED team for this amazing accomplishment! 🎉
