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.
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.
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.
Alteryx Server has increasingly become more popular as analytics leaders look to scale-out Alteryx to tackle bigger projects, larger datasets and to put self-service data analytics into the hands of more decision makers. But can the Alteryx Server be deployed in a virtual environment? How many users can it handle? How does the Alteryx Server scale? I recently sat down with the Alteryx Server product management and development leads to answer these questions and more. Learn more about the top 10 Alteryx Server frequently asked questions.
How should I scale Alteryx Server? This is probably one of the most frequently asked questions we get with Alteryx Server. And if you are new to Alteryx Server, you might not be aware of the flexibility and all the options you have when it comes to scalability. In this post, I'll discuss scaling-up vs. scaling-out, and the different scalability options for adding additional worker, gallery and database nodes.
We have plenty of clients, ACEs, partners and employees who are inspired enough about Alteryx that they are blogging on their own, defining best practices in the analytics world with the technology the Alteryx team is pouring their heart and soul into. So I would like to take a moment to direct your attention to the outside bloggers...
Larger workflows sometimes require a little extra effort to navigate around. We are exploring some enhancements to make it easier to move across a large canvas and we would love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, and concerns.
