Enhanced Platform Integrations

As the foundation of the Alteryx APA PlatformTM, Alteryx Analytics Hub empowers customers to leverage their existing analytics investment to uncover more insights.

Improved Scheduling Capabilities

If 2020, has taught us anything, it’s that the business environment is unpredictable. Automation becomes even more important in a remote-working, ever-changing world. Alteryx Analytics Hub is built with automation-first as a core tenet. Get precise automation in Hub with job prioritization and job platform queue capabilities that ensure your most important jobs have run before you take your first sip of Monday coffee. Additionally, with the new worker node tagging feature arriving with 20.4, you’re able to get very specific about where your workflows run. Tag worker nodes in your geography, across the world, in the cloud, or on-prem to allow for the needs of your environment.  





Streamlined Administrative Experience

Managing the different groups requiring analytics is a full-time position within many organizations. Providing the appropriate level of governance to your various stakeholders can be tedious, error-prone, and just plain difficult. This release of Analytics Hub streamlines the administrative experience. 20.4 brings the ability to connect to data on your network. Hub administrators can manage and configure connections to network locations and databases with integrated Windows credentials. Use more of the existing systems with LDAP syncing and Windows Authentication for your Data Connection Management in Hub. Once you’re connected to your existing systems, worker node tagging, along with file and user permissions, are manageable in the central Hub interface. Administering your APA Platform just got even simpler.
