Compellon recently joined the Alteryx Alliances program as a technology partner. We’re excited to have Michelle Reed share how Iris Pro brings additional intelligence to Analytic Process Automation.





Data analytics teams are in demand now more than ever, and two hurdles that every project encounters are: data quality and signal presence in the data.


People typically think if they have the data, it’s magically capable of solving all their problems. But that’s only true if it’s the right data — meaning if it contains the signal, or information, they’re looking for.


So how can we help manage these data expectations and also help increase the effectiveness of our data analysts?


Alteryx easily tackles the data quality hurdle, and now Compellon provides a way for data analysts to verify that their data contains the signal needed with Iris Pro. Think of it as a preflight check for all your projects, using the results to help you determine whether or not to continue.



Iris Pro + Alteryx



The Iris Pro tool allows users to send any and all data available to support a project in order to quickly verify if the signal needed is in the data provided. Simply join the data into one flat rectangular file and have a target column included in the set — no need to clean, code, or transform any data yet. Iris Pro analyzes as much information as possible with minimal data prep — so dump it all in and let Iris Pro do the work for you.






So, does your data contain the signal?


Iris Pro evaluates the data and provides information around your Data Quality — the Compellon way. We define “data quality” as the ability of your data to answer questions based on the signal supporting your target within the data. This indicates whether your data contains the information you need. Now, you can minimize costly failed projects by quickly identifying information-challenged datasets (aka no signal) and spend more time on projects that have the data to move forward.






By finding and measuring the signal in your data that supports your target, we know which group of variables contains that signal in the set. This set of variables is returned to your Alteryx workflow; now you only need to prep the relevant data before further analysis.
