Alteryx: Data Analysis For 'Mere Mortals'

Company lets business users analyze big data with no need for data scientists, says CEO. Watch our Valley View video.

The "data scientist" role is in vogue, but according to Dean Stoecker, CEO of big data analytics company Alteryx, there "aren't enough data scientists to save the world." His company is putting analytics into the hands of "mere mortals," Stoecker said. Alteryx, he added, is for the "data artisan."

Alteryx just began shipping version 8.0 of its analytics platform, which promises to let business users create and share powerful analytics applications, using data from standard databases, or from data sources such as Salesforce.com, Sharepoint, NoSQL and Hadoop.

You can hear more from Stoecker in the elevator pitch session video below. That elevator pitch was part of our Oct. 24 Valley View. You can watch more of these by tuning in to our Nov. 28 Valley View, which begins at 11 a.m., Pacific Time.
