Alteryx, a provider of strategic analytics software, today unveiled Project Edition, a free analytics solution that leverages the Alteryx Strategic Analytics 8.5 platform.
With it, line-of-business analysts can build, iterate, and deploy analytics workflows or applications.
Project Edition enables line-of-business analysts to use the complete Alteryx Strategic Analytics platform to do the following:
- Instantly create the analytics needed for a project with any data and integrate and cleanse data from any source (Excel, text files, data warehouses, big data sources such as Hadoop, cloud applications like SalesForce.com, social media and more).
- Build analytic workflows and iterate as business evolves.
- Output and share results in multiple formats, including Excel, Tableau, reports, or data files. Analysts can also share analytic applications in the Public Gallery section of the Alteryx Analytics Gallery, the Alteryx public cloud offering.
"Until now, line-of-business analysts have depended on IT to handle sophisticated analytics, which can be costly, time-consuming and offers little assurance that decision makers are getting the information they need," said George Mathew, president and chief operating officer at Alteryx, in a statement. "The new Project Edition of Alteryx Strategic Analytics provides the opportunity for the underserved data artisans to experience Alteryx by providing a powerful, free, instant analytics platform to complete their next business-critical analytics projects faster."
