Irvine, Calif.—Aug. 28, 2018—Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE:AYX), revolutionizing business through data science and analytics, today announced the general availability of the newest version of the Alteryx analytics platform (2018.3). The release introduces new features that greatly enhance how users prepare, analyze, share and collaborate on data across the organization, now amplified with our newest innovation: Visualytics.

Visualytics provides real-time, interactive visualizations across the Alteryx platform, enabling any data worker in an organization to easily visualize and understand their data throughout the entire analytics workflow, generating data-driven insights. Data analysts can now see their data at any point along the workflow to identify errors or outliers, make more informed decisions and streamline the analytics process. Inline Visualytics gives data scientists instant visual validation on the health of their analysis to maximize the effectiveness of business-critical models. A new Interactive Chart Tool lets users easily create Visualytics outputs, such as charts and graphs, to share in a multitude of ways. Analysts can create dashboards using the new Alteryx Insight Tool to combine multiple interactive charts together, then share with others for collaboration and discovery of further insights.

“Visualytics was nearly effortless for our team to execute and will help us provide our pharmaceutical and biotech customers with interactive charts that lead to more insights from our analytics,” said Ryan Peeler, director of network analytics at Voxx Analytics, a Gartner 2018 Cool Vendor in Life Sciences1. “The new caching tool will save our team a ridiculous amount of time, allowing us to make changes to the workflow where we need to, without running the entire process again. I’ve been an Alteryx customer for more than three years and was thrilled to participate in the beta program and stay involved in the company’s continued innovation.”

Additional key highlights of 2018.3 include:

  • Smart asset recommendation in Alteryx Connect allows users to get to their next question and answer faster.
  • Enhanced Alteryx in-database Spark capabilities with new support for Databricks on Azure and HDInsight.
  • New caching capability allows users to get to answers quickly.
  • A new Python tool with Jupyter integration to further bridge the gap between data scientists and the business.
  • A more enterprise-friendly server allows users to set job priority levels and assign worker nodes, ensuring critical work is delivered on time.

“Visualytics is an important enhancement to our analytics platform that changes the game by allowing customers to stay in the flow of their analysis without having to jump between different experiences,” said Ashley Kramer, SVP of product management at Alteryx. “Visualytics provides the flexibility analysts and data scientists need to gain quick insights along the way, and to quickly and easily share with others.”

Teradata Accelerates Sasol’s Digitization Journey with Cloud-Based Analytics Architecture




Company wins prestigious Opti Award for innovative enterprise-ready analytical ecosystem

Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the leading cloud-based data and analytics company, today announced that Sasol, a major international chemicals and energy company, is partnering with Teradata to create a robust analytical ecosystem that supports the company’s vision for creating a data-driven business strategy.

Sasol – which operates in 33 countries with revenue topping $21 billion – began a digitization strategy in 2015 with the goal of enabling the organization to generate, manage and use data-driven insights faster. Sasol’s enterprise information management team worked with Teradata, via the South Africa-based BYTES Technology Group, to define a new data architecture with methods and processes that enable Sasol to construct an enterprise-wide analytics program that reduces costs and improves the customer experience.

“Sasol understands the power of data and the value it can bring to day-to-day operations,” said Marius Brand, Senior Vice President for Strategy and Continuous Improvement at Sasol. “By leveraging Teradata’s expertise, we created an integrated data platform that consists of technology components, processes and methodologies that will enable a self-service environment in which our business units are able to identify intelligence and insights specific to their individual needs. The net result is that Sasol now has an environment that is enterprise-ready, so we can continue on the path of achieving a reliable, agile and extensible analytical enterprise that supports our business needs.”

At the center of this new analytical ecosystem is a cost-effective, sustainable and flexible cloud-based agile data platform. This well-governed, secure data platform supports scalable analytics in the cloud that enable new technical capabilities that include: high concurrency usage; data lab governance to empower analysts to develop their own data views and products; and an open and interoperable environment that is flexible and elastic to meet business demands.

By taking advantage of Teradata’s do-it-yourself deployment option via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, Sasol was able to develop a full analytical ecosystem in just two months, ensuring its team was ready to support multiple corporate initiatives in operations, finance and supply chain. The cloud deployment also gave Sasol the scalability and flexibility it needed for its operational dollars, avoiding a major capital investment.

For its innovative solution, Sasol has been named the winner of the Teradata Opti Award in the prestigious “cloud revolution” category. Sasol was selected for the award by an independent panel of judges for harnessing the power of the cloud to extract new insights that lead to meaningful business outcomes. Johanna Malan, Sasol’s Vice President for Enterprise Information Management and Information Security, will present the company’s solution during Teradata Analytics Universe 2018.

“Digitization is disrupting the oil and gas industry, and Sasol is catapulting to the forefront of this digitization journey by embracing cloud-based analytics at scale,” said Malan. “Sasol understands that the winners of the digital revolution will embrace the power of their data and take the necessary steps to make that data understandable and actionable.”

Future projects could allow Sasol to innovate even further, such as using drones to fly along pipelines to monitor and transmit multiple types of sensor data for algorithms to detect pipeline asset health and monitor equipment inspections. Sasol’s global digitalization program, enabled by Teradata technology, is primed to deliver additional business value, by applying a wide range of data and digital solutions to remain competitive and relevant:

  • Enriching customer experience and supporting market growth by addressing customer pain points and utilizing masses of customer and market data;
  • Improving­­­ decision making and productivity by applying selective business process automation across a wide range of functional areas; and
  • Increasing operational throughput and efficiency through predictive maintenance and energy optimization using vast data points managed through the data ecosystem.

Flytxt launches Robo-X, the Artificial Intelligence companion for marketers




  • AI decisions throughout customer engagement cycle – from planning and execution to measurement and optimization

Dubai: Flytxt today announced the launch of Robo-X, a first-of-its-kind Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Customer Engagement, which harnesses AI and Machine Learning to produce better marketing outcomes.

Robo-X is an AI designed to work alongside marketers –¬ whether that’s identifying new upsell and cross-sell opportunities, discovering insightful patterns, advising on offers and campaigns or assessing performance and indicating areas for improvement. It uses Flytxt’s proprietary AI platform and machine learning algorithms to discover important relations between consumers, products, offers, channels and competitive environment and how they impact business outcomes.

The automated and timely decision-making power of Robo-X exponentially increases the agility and scale of marketing, allowing even a less experienced marketer to become highly effective in maximizing the value of each customer interaction.

Robo-X is available as an add-on module to the company’s market-leading, flagship product NEON-dX, which is already delivering 2-7% uplift on net revenue for more than 100 clients of Flytxt around the world, including 60-plus telecoms operators. Through its proven packaged analytical models and dashboards for driving omni-channel digital engagement, NEON-dX allows enterprises to learn individual customer behavior and harness this data when creating campaigns.

Dr Vinod Vasudevan, CEO of Flytxt, said: “Robo-X is one example of how society is witnessing the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The powerful amalgamation of technologies, such as Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, is influencing so many aspects of our lives – both personally and professionally.

“Robo-X is an AI that can take marketing decisions on its own. As an intelligent companion for marketers, it will act as a force multiplier, increasing uplifts in revenue through campaigns run on NEON-dX.

“NEON-dX already offers a unique competitive advantage to some of the biggest companies around the world in some of the most innovative sectors, such as telecoms, financial services and travel. With the addition of Robo-X, marketers can now harness the power of artificial intelligence to create personalized customer interactions with a level of precision and scale that is beyond human capability, whether they are veterans of the industry or just beginners.”

Robo-X comes with powerful features such as:

Campaign Construction Advice: Robo-X uses AI to help marketers construct their program. The advisor function analyzes data from previous campaigns then makes suggestions to the marketer as they are building the campaign. For example, if it is an offer, Robo-X will leverage what it has learned in the past to advise on parameters such as demographics, geographies, and even the price.

Live Campaign Optimization: Robo-X continuously observes and benchmarks campaigns while they are running and prescribes corrective actions that will increase their impact. Such prescriptions help marketers to immediately respond and improve underperforming campaigns and scale up those that are doing well, increasing the overall outcome.

vAutomated Performance Guidance: Robo-X rates the performance of each individual campaign against the others as well as discovers reasons why some are successful, and others are not. Robo-X acts a trusted guide for the marketer, pointing out what is going well and what is not along with the reasons why, prioritizing and focusing the attention of the marketer on elements that will drive better business outcomes.

vMachine Learned Personalization: Robo-X creates personalized interactions to maximize the positive response from each customer using machine learning and optimization based on dynamic customer behavior, business strategy and customer context, as well as the feedback from each interaction. For instance, it creates personalized up sell and cross sell offers that best suit the expectations of the customer and strategy of the enterprise, continuously learning to adapt and improve itself.

The launch of Robo-X coincides with Flytxt’s 10th anniversary. Today, the company is one of the leading suppliers of AI, Machine Learning and Data Analytics solutions for customer engagement to telecom enterprises. Robo-X is based on more than 20 patented technologies developed over several years of research in association with IIT, Delhi, and TNO in the Netherlands.

Flytxt’s client base consists of more than 100 businesses across a global network of 50 countries, including more than 60 communications service providers, such as Vodafone, MTN, America Movil, Viettel, Airtel, and Zain Group.
Dr Vasudevan said: “So much of our success is due to delivering measurable returns for our clients, who see the impact almost immediately after taking up NEON-dX.

“Our next generation software is already being used by the world’s leading data-intensive businesses. We expect more growth now with firms in more sectors realizing the impact that the powerful combination of Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics and Marketing Automation can have on their revenue.”

Flytxt, backed by leading technology investors from Germany and The Netherlands, expects to grow its business by 10 times over the next 5 years, investing USD 50 million through a combination of debt and equity.

The company’s headquarters is in The Netherlands, corporate offices in the United Arab Emirates and development facilities in India.
