Analytic Template FAQs

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

Analytic Templates teach you how to prep, blend, and analyze your data faster than using tools like Excel or SQL coding; guide you through how to build sophisticated insights such as market basket analysis or predictive A/B testing; and show you how to output beautiful Tableau, Microsoft Power BI, Qlik or Salesforce Wave visualizations to explore and understand your data and insights.

The Starter Kits come with pre-built analytic templates and sample data that you can use to learn from, but you can easily use your own data in place of the data provided to uncover insights for your own organization. Best of all, the templates can be easily adjusted via drag-and-drop tools to provide the exact insights you need.
