Alteryx and Tableau have had a strong partnership over the years, enabling our customers to experience the thrill of solving and see and understand data. We're excited to deepen this partnership through the integration of Tableau's new Hyper API into 2019.4: You.Vision.


We're thrilled to announce that, through the integration of the Hyper API with the Input Data tool, you can now read Tableau Hyper Data Extract (.hyper) files as an input data source from within Alteryx Designer! We've been tracking this request for a long time and were quick to act once Tableau enabled this functionality.

Use a .hyper file as your input data to prep, augment, aggregate, and analyze the data in a new way. Additionally, benefit from substantial performance improvements when outputting .hyper files for Tableau consumption. Go from creating eye-catching charts and graphs in Tableau to carrying out further analytics in Alteryx!


“A major customer request that drove the development of the Hyper API was the ability to read data from .hyper files in Alteryx. We’re excited to see how Alteryx has used the Hyper API, enabling our joint customers to use .hyper file data within Alteryx workflows. Ultimately, this tight integration between products gives our joint customers more flexibility to augment, transform, and model their data — enhancing their data pipeline strategy." — Jonas Eckhardt, Senior Product Manager for Hyper


We're pretty hyped about this and eager to hear what you think and how you incorporate this capability into your analytics journey with Alteryx.
