Alteryx and Plotly Improve Data Visualization Throughout the Analytics Lifecycle

Alteryx, a provider of self-service data analytics, is partnering with Plotly, which offers a data visualization platform for modern data science. The companies plan to enhance visual representations of data within the Alteryx platform.

By enabling intuitive visual representations (or inline “visualytics”) of data as it moves through the analytics pipeline, line-of-business analysts can work in a more agile environment that supports sophisticated analytics techniques.

Organizations today want their users to be able to visualize and understand their data not just at the conclusion of the analytics process, but throughout the problem-solving journey, according to Dean Stoecker, CEO of Alteryx. Plotly's interactive visualization combined with the Alteryx platform helps to increase the productivity of analysts during the entire modeling process, he added.

With the Alteryx platform, users have an end-to-end solution to access and discover data assets, utilize dataset creation capabilities, apply statistical and spatial analysis, and visualize data. The Alteryx platform has often been paired with traditional dashboarding solutions to enable visualization. Plotly's charting library and JSON-based architecture makes it a strong partner for delivering greater value to customers, and the addition of a visualization panel directly into the Alteryx platform, is a logical step in creating a unified experience for business analysts, the company says.
