Alteryx can work with data in Hadoop in multiple ways, including HDFS, Hive, Impala, and Spark. Many of these offer multiple configuration options. The goal of this article is to present the various options available at a high level, note some performance observations between them, and encourage you to perform similar analyses to understand what works best in your environment.
Have you ever wanted to be notified if a workflow ran into an issue? Or get push notifications when incoming data quality didn't meet your standards? Check out the Twilio SMS Alert tool, which will send you a text message based on the tool's incoming data.
If you haven't had a chance, please checkout the Decision 2016 Presidential Election application. The app predicts who the winning candidate will be within a given U.S. neighborhood, as well as breaks down the outcome by demographics such as age, education, income, and race. Data from SurveyMonkey and the blending, spatial, predictive and Gallery API functions in Alteryx are used to create predictions that are beautifully displayed with help from Carto and Tableau. This post will walk through the architecture that was used to accomplish this.
Recently we celebrated the launch of our long anticipated Tool Mastery Series, a collective of Knowledge Base articles tasked with communicating the most inspired uses of each Alteryx tool. Check out how we automated all the hard parts and brought the series to life!
Do people regularly send you email attachments that are needed in your analytic workflows? If so, this blog post is for you. The Gmail Attachment Input tool automatically downloads email attachments into your Alteryx workflows. This is done through the use of the Google OAuth Macro and Google Gmail API.
Have you ever wanted to bring data from a Google service into an Alteryx workflow? You're in luck! Use the Google API: Retrieve Access Token macro to generate the Authentication token needed to make calls against Google APIs.
I had been with Alteryx for about two months when I started hearing people talk about CEF [Chromium Embedded Framework]. I did a little digging on my own, and true to its name, found that CEF was a framework for placing chromium based browsers within applications. Shortly after, I learned I would have a chance to use this technology myself for the upcoming release of Alteryx.
