Inspire is a celebration of the data analysts and business leaders who are making significant contributions to their organizations through data blending and advanced analytics in Alteryx. At last year's Inspire conference we announced our Alteryx Analytics Certified Expert (ACE) program to recognize a few of the most influential and supportive Alteryx users. The ACE program is designed to enable their sharing of unique insights, brainstorm with other users on what is possible and provide guidance based on their top-notch skills with Alteryx.

 

The program has been so successful that this year we've decided to triple the roster of Alteryx ACEs to 12. I've had the pleasure of getting to know each of these users firsthand, and I'm truly excited as they engage with the analytics community on their experiences and successes to deliver insights that are changing the way their companies do business.

Ken uses Alteryx to strategically extract demographic and business data, prepare data for more advanced analytical modeling, and output data for visualization in Tableau.

Alteryx in Ken's own words:
"I plan on expanding my usage of Alteryx by connecting to the extensive number of Teradata Aster files that reside in the GM electronic data warehouse. When I develop specialized techniques and approaches that require some time to research and implement, I plan on documenting these methods in my blog."

Dan uses Alteryx for high-speed, automated connectivity to data. He values the data blending and custom analytics capabilities in Alteryx, plus the visualization capabilities of Tableau, to generate business insight in 2.5 seconds or less.

Alteryx in Dan's own words:
"Alteryx enables analytics across formerly insurmountable boundaries. Competing analytic approaches can be modeled and simulated side-by-side within Alteryx workflows, thus providing multiple concurrent perspectives. Learning is accelerated through understanding the differences in the results from alternative perspectives."

GIS Manager, Clear Channel Outdoor

John has been using Alteryx for over 10 years as his go-to tool for data manipulation. He uses Alteryx to process spatial data to create market-level extracts, scrape online data, and schedule automated nightly reports in a variety of different spatial data formats and executive reports.

Alteryx in John's own words:
"As data becomes less constrained by the box in which it is stored, Alteryx will continue its integration into the online world. Currently, there are innumerable examples of online 'mashups' that take data from multiple sources and create a new product, analysis, or visualization. Alteryx has recently expanded its capabilities to handle these online data sources – enabling data analysts to create their own mashups. "
