Alteryx Inspire 2018: Alter Everything
This IDC Market Note presents highlights from Alteryx's Alteryx Inspire Conference, held June 4–6, 2018, in Anaheim, California. The tagline for this year's conference was "Alter Everything" and was appropriate as Alteryx presented stories of altering peoples life-work balance and intent to alter the data science software market with new versions of its platform that makes data science capabilities more accessible for advanced data analysts and aspiring and experienced data scientists."Alteryx has been able to transform the advanced spreadsheet user into a more productive and versatile data analyst and now is expanding into providing more advanced predictive analytics capabilities in hopes to do the same in the discipline of data science, " said Stewart Bond, director of Data Integration and Integrity software research at IDC. "Positioning as a code-free and code-friendly platform for both the aspiring and the experienced data scientist will continue to move Alteryx forward in the business analytics software market, but Alteryx also needs to be careful not to lose focus on what and who got the company to where it is today: a community that rallied around the platform because it has delivered business value, improving the productivity and lives of professionals who use it to prepare and analyze data but may not identify as data scientists."
