For those who’ve followed my Community blogs in the past, you’ll know that I’m passionate about giving back some of my time and skills in analytics to charities and organisations that are really trying to change the world for the better. Thanks to Alteryx for Good, I get to contribute many hours of my working time to these projects, and I’d like to tell you more about my latest adventure!
Want to leverage Alteryx capabilities in a web-app? Maybe you want to create your own data connector. Come as we introduce you to all of our developer tools so that you can show US what Alteryx is truly capable of.
We can't get enough of our Alteryx ACEs - especially when they weigh in on analytics culture, bridging the gaps between the business and IT, getting started with Alteryx, and sharing their best tips and tricks. What do you get when you have 4 ACEs?... 2 pockets of pocket rockets!
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.
The Visual Layout tool which we showed off at the Inspire Product Keynote will be shipping in the Lab in 11.3! Check out this article to get a rundown on the new tool and where to submit your feedback.
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!
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!
With the release of Alteryx Analytics 11.0, there were many changes to bridge the gap between self-service analytics and data governance. For many users, they may stumble across features as they experience them, while others are excitedly scanning the release notes.
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.
I 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.
Most real-world data-science design patterns combine several models to solve a single business problem. This post surveys the most common and effective techniques for combining models. Once you make it through this post (and its predecessors), you'll be ready to take on the design patterns we'll begin learning in 2017.
