A colleague of mine heard me tell this story recently.  It’s a story I’ve told countless times, but never put on paper.  I’ve told it in keynote addresses, one-on-one with customers, and others have adapted it for themselves.  But this is the original story.  This is the true story. This is a powerful story.  This is a personal story.  As of this writing, the actual event occurred five years ago, the last week of August.  It’s story about IT, Lines of Business, Analytics, and Data.  This is a story about one man's visit to a grocery store.

Mateo, Manny and Vinh are planning a Foodcation! Follow the conversation as they use Alteryx to combine, calculate, analyze, and predict where the ultimate Foodcation destination can be found. Then use the same data but with your own rankings and priorities to find the perfect spot for your next trip!

Manny and I want to go on a Foodcation, but how are we going to pick the best city to visit? We have to consider Manny’s city ratings and vegetarian demands, my inability to stand in a line, and the anti-car sentiments of a last-minute tag-along to our trip. Only one analytics program can help us crunch the numbers and select our destination… Check out the Alteryx solution developed with the help of the Denver User Group Grand Prix team and some adroitly deployed macros, the Spatial Info tool, predictive grouping, heat maps, Throttle, a Weather Underground API, and more!

Many if not most supervised-classification problems involve some degree of class imbalance, where at least one class occurs more frequently than the others.  The imbalanced-classification problem illustrates the value of approaching data-science problems as empirical (as well as formal) optimization problems, using techniques termed cost-sensitive learning. This post will show you how to do cost-sensitive binary classification.

alteryx_for_good_logo.svgI love building Alteryx workflows. I love working for Alteryx. I cannot begin to describe how much I loved doing this project for Luvin Arms. Their use case was so simple, yet without software – so overwhelming.

Alteryx has a lot of built in functionality, but the ability to leverage custom R code opens up even more possibilities. After reading an answer on the Alteryx Community many months back, I was inspired to try and integrate Google Charts into an Alteryx workflow by using the R tool.

After four weeks of applied Alteryx might, we can finally tally this one in the win column - Santalytics has officially come to an end! We helped Santa sort and rank the naughty and nice kids from the year in Part 1, determined his delivery hubs to account for every nice kid and their presents in Part 2, and assigned the best possible presents for each kid while accounting for sleigh weight in Part 3 - all that separated Santa from the fruits of our analytical insight was to visualize his trip across the globe so he could make it back in record timing in Part 4, the final chapter of the Santalytics challenge.

Cross validation (CV) is a difficult topic.  There are many ways to do CV, and articles on the subject can be very technical.  This blog post is a gentle introduction to CV.  Read it and you'll find it much easier to understand later posts describing data-science design patterns that use CV.

If you’ve arrived on this blog post, odds are you have aided Santa a third time in his trip around the globe in Week 3 of the Santalytics challenge - an inclusive, non-denominational, festive excuse for some friendly competition using Alteryx. You’ve also tackled yet another logistical nightmare for Santa with sheer Alteryx might, and identified opportunities in his data to help make the spirit of giving go even further this year. No doubt an impressive feat, and one that will be rewarded with a timeless Community Cold Weather Kit that will have you prepared to brave the coming winter season in peak fashion. Be warned in advance, you will make a lot of folks jealous this holiday season.

That’s right, we are officially one week closer to Santa’s arrival. If you’re reading this blog post, then you have participated in the second of four exercises that will constitute the Santalytics challenge - an inclusive, non-denominational, festive excuse for some friendly competition using Alteryx. You’ve also solidified your claim as Alteryx pro in your quest to help Santa and acquire timeless Alteryx swag by knocking the dust off of your Spatial Toolset to solve one of the more difficult optimization problems of the year.
