Alteryx Unveils Analytic Process Automation Platform

Data science and analytics firm Alteryx has unveiled its analytic process automation (APA) platform that it says unifies analytics, data science, and business process automation as part of a seamless, end-to-end platform.

Alteryx APA Platform

The Alteryx APA Platform is designed to put automation in the hands of data workers, from data scientists, skilled analysts to line-of-business users, allowing businesses to leverage their data assets more broadly than ever before. Alteryx says this will culminate in greater workforce efficiencies, top-line growth and allow businesses to optimize costs.

Alteryx claims that its APA Platform can empower and upskill the market of 54 million data workers identified in an IDC InfoBrief to solve business-critical problems that drive top-line growth, returns and efficiency, as well as address bigger societal challenges.

The system offers over 260 automation building blocks that businesses can use as part of an integrated solution for self-service insights and automated actions. Data scientists (or citizen data scientists) can hence focus on delivering high-impact business outcomes through the code-free platform for their analytics and data science initiatives.

“Businesses are looking for transformational outcomes and have a heightened urgency to digitally transform. This requires a new kind of platform with an organizational capacity to make every worker across a company a data worker,” said Dean Stoecker, co-founder and CEO of Alteryx.

“The analytics category is fast maturing and capitalizing on the potential of APA demands a unified platform that makes analytics, data science and process automation accessible to all. Human ingenuity is essential in creating any form of successful automation and when humans and machines work together as a means of amplifying intelligence, we can solve remarkable problems.”
