When you’re working with data, you can spend more time searching for information than on the analysis itself. In some cases, others in the organization have already collected the same information or performed a similar analysis, and there’s no good way of finding it. As a result data assets proliferate, compounding the problem and creating inefficiencies and delays in answering critical business questions.

Alteryx Connect changes how you discover and organize information for analytics in your organization, so you can spend more time collaborating and finding new insights. We are at the beginning of a thrilling analytic experience that combines the power of data cataloging with human insight and empowers you to quickly and easily find, manage, understand, and collaborate on the information that resides in your organization.

Now you can accelerate the end-to-end analytic process to dramatically improve productivity and generate better business decisions for all.
