Alteryx Connect - Find the Information assets in your data

Most analysts spend more time searching for information that may be relevant to their analysis than on the analysis itself. Too much time spent on the front end translates to inefficiencies and delays in answering critical business questions and, in turn, implementing the actions that can improve your bottom line. And often, others in the organization have already collected the same information or performed a similar analysis, but analysts have no good way of finding it. Data assets and resulting information proliferate, thus compounding the problem and creating inefficiencies and delays in answering critical business questions.

Alteryx Connect changes how analysts discover, prioritize, and analyze all relevant information in their organization. It is the beginning of a thrilling analytic experience that combines the power of data cataloging with human insight, and empowers analysts to quickly and easily find, manage, understand, and collaborate on the information that resides in their organization. Now, analysts can accelerate the end-to-end analytic process to dramatically improve analytic productivity and information governance, thus generating better business decisions for all.
