As I mentioned in my previous blog about training options for new Alteryx users, people come back to Inspire year after year to attend the complimentary product training that we offer. After attending these classes, attendees are able to expand their use of Alteryx into new areas, including predictive analytics, spatial analytics, and analytic app development.

 

inspire 2015For users who have progressed past the basics and want to take their Alteryx skills to the next level, we offer six intermediate courses at Inspire 2015. To find out when these classes are offered, visit the Agenda page for Inspire 2015.

This session will focus on how to dynamically extract data from relational databases based on upstream parameters within the workflow. Users will also gain insight into how to leverage the dynamic tools within the Developer Toolset to not only merge streams of data but also how to consume multiple inputs from a file reference. Tools used in this session will include: Dynamic Input, Join Multiple, and Dynamic Rename.
