Alteryx has announced the Alteryx Analytics Cloud, its first unified end-to-end analytics automation platform designed to help businesses make more informed decisions with data.

The availability of new Alteryx solutions in the cloud means users only need a browser to gain access to insights, with a faster setup.

Alteryx's low-code/no-code capabilities is also designed to make it easier for any user to extract insights that help them tackle business problems.

According to an Alteryx-commissioned survey by YouGov, only 12% of workers reported having the benefit of driving business-changing outcomes through self-service analytics.

Democratising data analytics and ensuring every employee has access to insights will be key for enterprises to remain competitive, the company states.

Alteryx is addressing this market need by delivering Alteryx Designer Cloud, Alteryx Machine learning, Alteryx Auto Insights, and Trifacta Data Engineering Cloud in one unified solution suite, the Alteryx Analytics Cloud.

Alteryx chief product officer Suresh Vittal says, “Gone are the days when only select teams could have access to analytics.

"As we accelerate the next phase of our cloud growth, our new innovations will bring analytics to all so every business can empower every employee from data engineers and IT to data analysts and scientists to line of business users to make data-informed decisions using analytics automation."

Designer Cloud helps customers extend the power of analytics beyond data scientists, IT, and data and analytics departments to lines of business groups.

Any user who interacts with data can now use Designer Cloud to prepare, blend, and output data in a highly visual, code-free way through a browser, including on Macs.

Designer Cloud is interoperable with Alteryx's Designer Desktop product and users can collaborate and share workflows between both applications. Users can also integrate with cloud applications, databases, spreadsheets and more with cloud storage connectors available for platforms like Amazon S3, Google Drive, Office 365 and Snowflake.

Alteryx Machine learning is a cloud-native, automated modelling solution created to help business users make data-driven decisions.

Instead of requiring data science experts to code machine learning models, business analysts can now build, validate, iterate and explore models with a visually guided user experience while learning about data science using Education Mode.

Alteryx Auto Insights, formerly Hyper Anna, is a cloud-native analytics solution that delivers AI-driven automated insights to business users.

The solution works like a human analyst. It finds stories, anomalies and insights hidden in data, and provides clear summaries and explanations focused on what matters across the organisation, the company states.

Enterprise customers are deploying modern data architectures built upon cloud data warehouses and SaaS-based applications and analytics.

With the addition of Trifacta to Alteryx Analytics Cloud, data engineers can now drive their analytics at scale, as well as satisfy their business users' appetite for timely insights from these large cloud datasets to fuel digital transformation efforts.

IDC group vice president analytics and information management Dan Vesset says, “Alteryx continues to strengthen its portfolio and accelerate its cloud growth through new product innovations and acquisitions.

"With the launch of Alteryx Analytics Cloud, they'll be able to truly extend the value of analytics automation and help their customers regardless of where a user sits in an organisation use analytics to drive their digital transformation efforts.
