Hi, we have had a couple of customers that experienced some issues keeping Promote running properly.  It would be nice if there was a central repository of information of potential failures that we can point out the the customers instead of having them dig for it in the community (or wait for support to do the digging).  It would greatly help since a number of clients in my country are quite intimated with Linux.

Idea: How about delivering the promote package with a model zoo?

 

68pcs-BOHS-Simulation-Zoo-Solid-Animals-Dinosaurs-Park-Containing-Fence-Tiger-Action-Mini-Figures-Children-Model

 

 

 

 

Rationale: It takes time to ROI, when you first license any analytics software.

Alteryx Designer comes with nice sample workflows you can start building on top of them and have a

  • Customer lifetime value prediction
  • Shop location optimization
  • Simple credit scoring or pricing

right off the bat.

 

What if Alteryx Promote comes with;

Some simple and some "deep" models as is;

 

  1. Object detection from images (that let's any startup to figure out what's o screen - Image)
  2. Facial recognition (that let's anyone do face matching from previous shoppers for e.g. - Image)
  3. Picture similarity based on fingerprinting (that let's with promote yo can do fuzz joins with exsting product pictures)
  4. Pre-trained speech recognition model (that let's anyone with promote to do speech to text on a realtime or near-realtime basis)
  5. Feed Forward Classification (that let's from some existing data we can generate synthetic data on a real-time basis and test our models)

It would be extremely useful to have an option to paginate over the output of a Promote Alteryx model. 

 

For example, suppose the output of a model is :

 

[
{
"object_id": 1
"class" : 1
},
{
"object_id": 2
"class" : 0
}
...
]

 

 

...if that output contains hundred of thousands of items, it could be important to be able to paginate over that output instead of returning the whole thing at once and risking a timeout.

So there we have a hosted version of Alteryx Server at gallery.alteryx.com

 

Why not to have a "hosted" version for Promote

  • Would be possible to test it
  • See example deployments
  • Deploy basic models from Alteryx Trial to "Promote" trial
  • Even this can generate a new revenue stream (pay as you score)

One key challenge that we have is promoting regular canvasses (not just advanced analytics models).

 

It would be very useful if Promote could be made part of the core product of the server:

a) split the server into 1;2;3 environments (Dev; UAT; Prod)

b) Promote then manages the workflow to promote an asset between these environments, with a configurable workflow that allows for signoffs; diff checks; control checks (e.g. are people using tools in the right way; DB connection strings etc); and then writing a copy into the firm source-code repository.

c) Promote should also then change the links in canvasses to point to a prod version of the databases and APIs if relevant.

 

This process is currently extremely manual and labour intensive; so if we could apply the same Promote process to regular canvasses it would be a big time saving for our admin teams.

send application and server logs from a promote instance to Elasticsearch using logstash or fluentd

Some customers would like to log all inputs & outputs that go into each model. The goal is to save every JSON request and response with minimal (or no) impact to latency.
