It’s an exciting day here at our Inspire conference in Nashville, where 5,000 Alteryx fans have come together to learn more about changing the world through analytics and data science. One of the best parts of my job is delighting customers with exciting new features that empower them to do their jobs better and answer world-altering questions. Today, I had the privilege to talk about the modern analytics journey and announced new features that amplify the capabilities of analysts and citizen data scientists. The response was mind-blowing. 

 

An important step in the journey is bridging the skill set gap between data science and analytics, and it's a key mission of Alteryx. As I talk to citizen data scientists around the world, I hear people wanting to break free from barriers like formal education. When I think about that feeling of being free, there is one image that pops into my head: Bruce, my yellow lab, running across the sand after I've taken his leash off.

What's new in 2019.2?

Before any company can unleash advanced analytics, it’s imperative to get self-service analytics fundamentals down. At Alteryx, we continue to transform analytics to empower analysts to derive better answers, faster. With our latest software release, Alteryx Analytics 2019.2, analysts will find it easier than ever to embark on data exploration.

The critical first step in analytics is dropping that Input Data tool to access your disparate data sources. With our new single connection experience, you can instantly identify how to connect to different data types including on-prem and cloud databases.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interactive Results GridIMG IRG.gif
The next step in making better decisions is to quickly understand your data. With the ability to search, sort and filter data at any point through the results grid, analysts can quickly identify the next step to take in their analysis. For example, you can search for a name across all columns to pinpoint specific records or sort your sales data to see which region is the highest performing. Any recovering spreadsheet analyst will appreciate the familiarity in the interactive results grid experience as they get to more insights faster.

Collaboration across teams

Analytics is a social experience and we are improving collaboration between teams across organizations through Alteryx Server. Collections are a powerful place to collaborate on workflows and collection owners can now grant granular permissions to add, edit or update assets for each individual member. Owners can also empower others to add or remove users from the collection to break down silos across the organization.
