Alteryx recently released the Alteryx Starter Kit for Microsoft. This kit enables you to quickly get started with Alteryx and Microsoft. The kit contains several key analytic applications, visualizations, pre-built Alteryx workflows, Microsoft Power BI dashboards, and tutorial information. You will quickly learn and see how to get started working with your own data using Alteryx and Microsoft.


The kit includes the following examples:


  • Data Blending
  • Data Cleansing
  • Predictive Analytics
  • Spatial Analytics
  • Azure ML Text Analytics
  • Publish Directy to Power BI
  • Fuzzy Matching
  • Dashboards and Visualizations


Download the Starter Kit now, and if you don’t already have Alteryx and Microsoft Power BI, make sure you sign up for a Microsoft Power BI Trial and download/install the Alteryx Trial so you can see the results. Once you’ve installed both trials, then install the Starter Kit. In Alteryx, you will find the samples in the menu under Help/Sample Workflows/Microsoft Starter Kit Samples.

As you open and run each of these workflows, you will see in the output section that your data is being directly sent to Microsoft Power BI so you can start building out your visualizations and dashboards.

In addition, by automating your data preparation and advanced analytics in Alteryx, you can devote more time to gaining important data insights in Microsoft Power BI. Spend less time on preparing data and more time on analyzing and visualizing it in order to produce game-changing insights. Streamline your approach to self-service data analytics and create a faster end-to-end cycle from data preparation to visualization.
