Company Positioned in Sixth Consecutive Report
Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE: AYX), revolutionizing business through data science and analytics, revealed it was named a Challenger in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms1. This placement marks the sixth consecutive time that Alteryx was recognized in this Magic Quadrant.*
Gartner predicts, “Through 2020, the number of citizen data scientists will grow five times faster than the number of expert data scientists.”2 Alteryx enables the citizen data scientist and the collaboration between all data producers, changing the conversation around analytics as customers look for an end-to-end platform that can support their analytic journeys from beginning to end and from simple to sophisticated. The company achieved this position with a strategic focus on solidifying a platform that bridges the gap between the business and the data scientist; last year, delivering the general availability of Alteryx Promote, which allows enterprises to deploy, manage, and monitor production-based predictive and machine learning models, and the introduction of Visualytics, which provides real-time, interactive visualizations throughout the analytic workflow. In 2019, Alteryx will build upon its market leadership, prioritizing new features to help data scientists succeed and creating guided utility to help analysts improve their skillset and start building models.
“Many organizations still struggle to turn their data into actionable insights and that is due, in large part, to the shortage of trained data scientists. In today’s data-driven business landscape, understanding data to make imperative business decisions can no longer be the responsibility of one role, one team or one department,” said Ashley Kramer, senior vice president of product management at Alteryx. “We believe that our position in this Magic Quadrant validates our strong execution, delivering an analytics platform that simultaneously addresses the needs of the data analyst, data scientist and citizen data scientist, and enables seamless collaboration across data workers. We are committed to innovating for our customers and enhancing the Alteryx Platform to address increasingly complex data science and analytic challenges.”
Recently, Gartner also acknowledged Alteryx as a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Data Science and Machine-Learning Platforms, a recognition given to vendors in this market based on reviews by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and overall user ratings. As one solutions architect and data scientist in the transportation industry described, “Alteryx has allowed us to catalyze the deployment of analytics and data science. Analysts have been able to upscale into data scientists, and data scientists into leaders.”
