2022.1.1.30569 Patch Release Update

The 2022.1.1.30569 Patch/Minor release has been removed from the Download Portal due to a missing signature in some of the included files. This causes the files to not be recognized as valid files provided by Alteryx and might trigger warning messages by some 3rd party programs. If you installed the 2022.1.1.30569 release, we recommend that you reinstall the patch.

Hi everyone!


The Q4 2018 Business and Location Insights data packages includes analytics-ready data from a variety of vendors as well as data-specific analysis tools to get the most from the packaged data. All data packages will be available via the Downloads & Licenses portal later today. US & Canada Business Insights customers should receive their hard drives later this week, but you are also welcome to download the data from the portal.


Here are a couple important notes for this release. Please see the product specific release notes for more information.

  • Product name change (does not affect product contents):
    • US and Canada "Data", which includes demographics, business lists, etc., are now called "Business Insights"
    • All "Spatial" packages are now called "Location Insights"
  • DigitalGlobe Satellite Maps base URL changed to whitelist.alteryx.com/v1/dgmaps/v1. See this post for more details.


All documentation packages included in the attached .zip file. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.


Happy Alteryxing!

Note that this post includes a corrected version of the US Data Variable List that was not included on the hard drive or via the Downloads & Licenses portal. The correction corresponds to TrueTouch variables within the ConsumerView dataset - there were no new variables with the Q4 2018 release.

Location and Business Insights Q4 2018 Data Sets Release


The Alteryx Product team is excited to release the Q4 2018 Location Insights and Business Insights Data Sets packages.


These products are being delivered on a quarterly basis for a decade and give users the ability to plot customer addresses on a detailed street map display, enrich these points and trade area boundaries with detailed demographics, consumer segmentation information, and behavior variables to influence key location and business decisions.  These data sets were traditionally labeled as ‘Spatial product’ and ‘Data product’.  Beginning with this Q4 2018 release, we’ve re-branded these as “Location Insights” and “Business Insights” data products respectively to better reflect the general use cases they’re delivering to users.


Many organizations today are delivering this type data, what makes these particular data sets from Alteryx unique?


Here are 7 quick steps to achieving the most value from these products:


  • Locate customers down to the rooftop.




  • Display your data on a cartographically-rich, street map or an aerial imagery map








  • Create Drive-time and Trade-area polygons to understand whether your business is reaching your existing customers and expand your business in underserved or high potential markets.




  • Enrich your data with base and forecasted demographics information to best cater to the needs of your customers



  • Expand your product offerings by considering important customer behavior and segmentation patterns in your markets.


  • Analyze your customer and business locations using the included Alteryx Designer Spatial tools to get more insights from your data.




  • Export the output of your enrichment and analysis into common geo-spatial formats to make compelling maps that can be shared with others in your organization.



The value isn’t solely in the data sets that Alteryx is building using the Experian, TomTom, Dun & Bradstreet data vendors; however, it lies in the Alteryx capabilities to enrich and analyze your data with these data sets and spatial capabilities that help your business derive the location & business insights.
