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!

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.

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.

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.
