So going through all the procedures what is the time it takes for an average workflow to go from Thought to publishing on the production server? Is it possible to break it down by area? I'm thing of general numbers not specific.
Thank you! It's great to see how other companies handle there server.
Like I mentioned in original post, we're just starting down this path with Alteryx and we haven't pushed anything to prod yet. Generalizing from our other changes, .Net, Oracle procs, etc., from the end of UAT to production release generally takes a couple of days. We've been doing this since SOX was first implemented so we have the process running rather smoothly.
Hi Dani, I realize this post is a month old but wanted to ask if you have made any more progress with respect to the SOX? I work in finance and recently got an Alteryx licence. It is a great tool but my boss has concerns about the compliance aspect. I use it to pull sales and other P&L information that feeds into a report in Tableau. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
The key points about the SOX process are compliance and documentation. The compliance part comes in from the start of the data input process. Are your data source sources certified? Are they secure? Next comes the actual workflow itself. Has it gone through a formal QA/UAT process? What guarantee do you have the transformation processes in your workflow generate the data that you say it does? Then comes promotion to production. Do you have a change management process? Is your prod environment secure? Are you logging access and workflow executions? Wrapping all this is the documentation. You need to document all the steps and be able to answer when an auditor asks "Where did this piece of data come from and how can you be sure you can trust it?"
If you're already doing this for your other finance applications, the main difference will be the ease that Alteryx can be used to pull in almost any data source. This is the area that you'll need to put extra compliance around.
