How does Alteryx allow you to kick ass at work? 

  • Delivers results period!  - Most of the hardest work in analytics is defining the business problem then getting access and preparing the data. Alteryx empowers everyone to do this (not just the BI team) and so transforming and enabling critical decisions at the front line where it matters to the customer. 
  • Develop a single customer view - Single customer view doesn't have to cost a company millions! Alteryx enables anyone with a bit of business knowledge to collaborate with others and develop a single view of customer across digital,front line, call centre and other channels. The business impact of this is huge!
  • Collaborate as a team - Solve difficult business problems and build workflows as a team (with the business actively involved every step of the way) and not as individuals! This is really helping to change the culture of relationships between business and analytic teams.
  • Makes everyone a citizen data scientist - Alteryx enables everyone to achieve advanced analytic outcomes using spatial and predictive and applying them daily to business problems saving and making companies millions of dollars!
  • Sharing - everyone is so willing to help out. I also particularly love the Alteryx user stories shared at Inspire as it shows the product being applied to deliver financial and business outcomes. Certainly it has helped open my eyes on to what is possible. A truely generous and humbling community.

My Passion outside work 

  • Body boarding down under!! -  Surfing the alteryx flag down under at beautiful Manly in Sydney.

  1. How does Alteryx allow you to kick ass at work?

It allows me to independently grab any data I want, manipulate it any way I want, and output it any way I want. And when I want to do it again next week/month/year, I can just open up my work and click run. 


2. Show us what YOU do to fulfill your passions outside of work.   

When I'm not Alteryxing at work, I like to help other people Alteryx. Whether it's writing blog posts, posting product ideas or answering other user's questions, it feels good to give back by helping others up their game.

1.  Alteryx enables me to work fast, and answer questions using data as fast as they can be asked!  I always ask folks - got dirty data?  Well, I've got a broom.  And once that data is cleaned up, there is a rich treasure chest of information within that can lead to serious value to both our company and our clients.


2.  My passion outside of work is my family.  Here's a whole bunch of pics of the fun things we do!

  1. How does Alteryx allow you to kick butt at work?

There are really too many cases where Alteryx kicks butt to count. If it weren't for Alteryx, our certification program I would sending 2000+ emails a month, manually checking pass/fails for 1000+ test takers, but now can distribute take care of this in less than a half day.  I wish the butt kicking was only relegated to work, but I have used it to make my home life simpler too. Just last month, my camera uploaded ~1200 photos to my computer. I came to find that each photo had a new folder it was placed in , leaving me with ~1200 folders containing 1 photo apiece. What could have taken me days to clean up, took me 15 minutes to thing through and 2 minutes to execute. Thanks Alteryx!


           2. Show us what YOU do to fulfill your passions outside of work.

When I'm not working and spending time with work or family, you probably can't find me anywhere. I'm likely in the high country of Colorado chasing back country epics and chasing some great dirt ( see #herodirt)!

1. My favorite Alteryx features that come in handy every week at work:

  • I can easily access many different sources of data… all within one workflow.
  • Dirty data can quickly be cleaned up with just a couple tools.
  • Workflows can be scheduled overnight so that they will run and get me the data I want, even when I’m sleeping.
  • There are so many different ways to accomplish one task. Thus, there are always opportunities to educate yourself or others.
  • Building in Alteryx makes my job feel more like fun and less like work.


2. When I’m not at work, I love to stay busy. Here are a few examples of the things I like to do outside the office:

Alteryx has changed the way I work, reason about a problem or tackle a problem head on. It has inspired me to work less hard and smarter. It’s just amazing how much time it saves when I am tackling any data prep issues. It used to take me several hours to do the same thing which takes me half the efforts now. Alteryx has exposed me to so many talented and great people through seminars and training. All in all, it has given me just the best things. I now have more time to do the crazy stuff I like!!!


This pic below is a sample of one of the crazy things i like doing in my personal time apart from Netflix :P21122349_1647666015268126_5503998695185027156_o.jpg
