Alteryx, Inc. has come out with a new release of its big data analytics solution.
Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.0 includes the Alteryx Analytics Gallery, which enables users to access, share and curate collections of applications. This, the company says, makes it easier for decision makers to engage in advanced analysis with five new drag-and-drop predictive analytics tools focused on Time Series functions.
The gallery will initially include more than 30 free analytic applications.
The new release also allows for fast, single-click publishing to public or private clouds, and a new scheduler. And a new Salesforce.com (News - Alert) connector available with Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.0 allows for deeper customer insight by integrating cloud application data with big data, spreadsheets, databases, packaged content and social media sources, the company says.
"Traditional analytics platform vendors think that cloud analytics means hosting their difficult-to-use and costly solutions in a public cloud, putting huge constraints on the potential for Big Data and analytics to unleash creativity," said George Mathew, president and chief operating officer at Alteryx. "The Alteryx Analytics Gallery is the first analytics cloud platform to recognize that business decision makers expect their business applications to be as engaging as the apps they use at home. This release delivers a powerful consumer-based analytics experience that enables organizations to get to the value of Big Data exponentially faster."
Irvine, Calif.-based Alteryx provides analytic solutions to enterprises, including such well-known companies as Experian Marketing Services and McDonald's.
The area of analyzing big data has been getting a lot of attention of late, as companies move to leverage more of the information within their organizations, and in some cases, combine and analyze that along with external data.
