inspire 2015If that sounds familiar then we've got the perfect classes for you. Advanced users like yourself can feast on complimentary training at Inspire 2015 in the following areas. Consult the Agenda page for Inspire 2015 to get the specific dates and times.

 

Data Blending (Advanced Users)
In this session we will review best practices for applying a waterfall process to fuzzy matching to ensure we attain all possible matches across a customer file and an extract from the Experian Household file. Tools used in this session will include: Fuzzy matching, RegEx, Make Group, Union, Join, and Formula.

 

Data Parsing (Advanced Users)
Data never seems to be in the ideal format, but with Alteryx it's easy to convert it into something usable. In this session you'll learn how to take semi-structured data and reshape it for analytics. Tools used in this session will include: RegEx, Formula, Multi-Row Formula.

 

Macro Development (Advanced Users)
This session will teach you how to turn a repeatable process into a reusable tool that can be added to your toolbox. You'll also learn techniques for constructing iterative macros to continuously execute a process until a certain condition is met.

 

Predictive Analytics (Advanced Users)
Learn how to insert your own R code into an Alteryx tool and construct a macro to operationalize the tool for use by a broader set of users in your organization. Tools used in this session will include: R and the user interface tools.

 

Spatial Analytics: The Location Optimizer (Advanced Users)
Get all the details about the location optimization macro within Alteryx. This macro type is designed to run multiple iterations to identify the best locations to add or remove from a location network based on relationships between points of supply and demand.

If you're not yet at this skill level and missed either of my previous blogs on training classes offered for new and intermediate users, I've provided links on where you can find them.

 

These classes are in high demand and training rooms are almost at capacity. If you've put off registering for the conference, what are you waiting for? Inspire 2015 will give you the opportunity to rub elbows with your peers – the best Alteryx users in the world. Register today before the classes fill up, and leave you out of this exclusive club.

 

I look forward to seeing you all in Boston in a few weeks.
