According to a recent press release, “Alteryx, Inc., a leader in self-service data analytics, today announced that it is partnering with Plotly, the preferred data visualization platform for modern data science, to enhance inline “visualytics” within the Alteryx platform. As modern organizations seek to distribute analytics capabilities across a variety of business users, there has been a significant shift towards self-service platforms — and now — for more intuitive visual representations (or inline visualytics) of data as it moves through the analytics pipeline. With this integration, line-of-business analysts can work in a more agile environment that supports sophisticated analytics techniques.”
Dean Stoecker, CEO of Alteryx, commented, “Increasingly, our customers are asking to visualize and understand their data not just at the conclusion of the analytics process, but throughout the problem-solving journey… Plotly’s interactive visualization is the ideal technology to match with the Alteryx platform to increase the productivity of analysts during the entire modeling process. Through visual analytics — or, visualytics, as we like to call it — we are making those thrilling discoveries all the more accessible.”
The release goes on, “With the Alteryx platform, users have an end-to-end solution to access and discover data assets, utilize powerful dataset creation capabilities, apply statistical and spatial analysis, and visualize data. To date, the Alteryx platform has often been paired with traditional dashboarding solutions to enable visualization. Adding a visualization panel directly into the Alteryx platform is a logical step in creating a unified experience for business analysts. Plotly’s robust charting library and JSON-based architecture makes it an ideal partner for delivering even greater value to customers.”
