Inspire 2016 track session presentersInspire 2016 in San Diego is right around the corner, and if you haven’t started scheduling the sessions you want to attend, now is a great time to start. This year’s customer breakout sessions will be some of the best yet, with speakers from companies such as Chick-fil-A, Western Union, Sally Beauty, Walmart, Southwest Airlines, Kaiser Permanente, and many more. Be sure to check out the Inspire 2016 Data Analyst and Business Leader blogs to learn more about these sessions.

 

The unique part about these particular Data Analyst and Business Leader sessions is that they are all being delivered by Alteryx Server customers! Each of these sessions will provide you with practical advice on how to build and scale an enterprise-ready analytics solution. If you are interested in Alteryx Server, or are curious to see how these companies have made Alteryx Server a critical component of their overall infrastructure for delivering self-service data analytics, you’ll want to attend the following Alteryx Server customer sessions:

We will have experts from our product management team presenting best practices for sharing, collaborating, and governing workflows, as well as providing tips for when and how to scale Alteryx across your organization.

If you’re curious why hundreds of customers, including Chick-fil-A, Western Union, Sally Beauty, Walmart, Southwest Airlines, and Kaiser Permanente, all are running Alteryx Server, then this is your chance to see the power of Alteryx Server first hand!

 

Finally, we will have an Alteryx Server Q&A Session on Thursday at 8:45AM with our product management, engineering teams and special customer guests.
