A massive thank you to everyone who attended the London user group on Tuesday, 19 June. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. A special shout out to Tesco who hosted the event in their London office in Farringdon.
For those of you that weren’t able to make it, a brief summary of the night’s events are as follows:
And now for some insight into our magnificent speakers…
Nicholas Metzgen - Director of Transaction Advisory Services at EY
Nicholas provided an overview of how heavily Alteryx is being used at EY. He demonstrated that there is nothing that Alteryx can’t solve and was able to give us an example of how it saved the day by solving a restaurants P&L mystery quickly and easily.
Nick Cavey – Pre Sales Consultant at Alteryx
Nick explained how he was able to predict the winner of the World Cup by using Alteryx. The outcome of his model predicted that if England managed to finish top of their group, they would face Brazil in the quarter finals and their world cup dream would be over (yet again). Brazil would then face Germany in the final where Germany would over power the Brazilians and be crowned champions (yet again). Sorry England, but history suggests Nick’s got this one spot on :)
Nick Jewell – Product Strategy at Alteryx
Nick was able to give us a fantastic overview of what to expect from Alteryx in the future. He let slip that ‘cache anywhere’ functionality is on its way which I’m sure you are all as excited about as I am. If you can’t wait to get your hands on version 2018.3, sign up now to join the beta program: Alteryx Analytics Beta 2018.3
Ben Moss & Peter Gamble-Beresford – Consulting Analysts at The Information Lab
Ben and Peter both graduated from the Data School and are now full time consultants at The Information Lab. They were both invited to speak at Inspire US and wowed the crowd with an Escape Room game using Alteryx. The details of this cannot yet be released as they are planning on returning to the stage at the next user group to put us through our paces.
