I’m excited to announce that Alteryx has acquired Hyper Anna, an Australian-based software company that provides a leading cloud platform for automatically generating artificial intelligence (AI)-driven insights from data. Hyper Anna allows anyone, regardless of technical background, to access AI-driven insights from data.
This extends our automation capability and will allow organizations to surface these AI-driven automated insights via narratives and visualizations directly to business consumers. Equally importantly, we will benefit from their talent to help accelerate our insight generation capability. We welcome Hyper Anna to the Alteryx team!
It is said that the automation of contextualized, personalized, and dynamic insights will disrupt current traditional, predefined dashboarding. Hyper Anna is this next generation of software that provides automated insights that are customized to a user's context so they can quickly answer questions to accelerate business outcomes.
Separating Signals From Noise
While dashboards are rich in visualizations, users own the responsibility of extracting insights. Most of those who use analytics access insights in predefined dashboards, which are unaware of a business users’ context – particularly, who they are and what questions they are asking from the data. This can lead to incorrect conclusions and flawed actions. Hyper Anna complements traditional dashboards by enabling data-driven enterprises to:
Quickly scale automated insights and exceptions to focus on what matters across the organization
Surface hidden signals in their data that would have gone unnoticed in traditional BI and visualization tools
Enable anyone to derive impactful data storytelling to speed actions and decisions in the business
How it Works
In the example below, analysts are analyzing product sales trends over time. We see that Hyper Anna automatically provides plain language descriptions on what (e.g., “Sales were down in Nov”) and why things changed (e.g., “Why were there fewer sales in Nov?”), with the ability to ask more questions of the data interactively.
Drilling onto the data a bit more, we can see an overview of what happened and the key drivers of changes. It will also automatically surface anomalies and insights so you can instantly act.
We will be adding the Hyper Anna product to the broader Alteryx portfolio soon. With the addition of Hyper Anna, Alteryx now automates the end-to-end analytic pipeline from data sources to AI-driven insights. Leveraging the Alteryx and Hyper Anna solutions together, customers can accelerate the creation of breakthrough outcomes from their data.
Stay tuned and we will keep you apprised of our progress. To learn more, visit: hyperanna.com.
