NEXT VALLEY VIEW: OCTOBER 24
Join us on October 24 for Valley View, our exciting live video show. In addition to chats with Cisco's John Chambers and Oracle's Mark Hurd, we'll also feature our Elevator Pitch session, a rapid-fire deluge of information about new technology approaches.
One company's elevator pitch we'll be highlighting: Alteryx.
To say that Alteryx is a big data company wouldn't quite do it justice. This company is on a mission to make complex data exploration and insights digestible for mere mortals, rather than just data scientists. Alteryx labels its target user "the data artisan" and talks about the consumerization of analytics. The data artisan, who is more like a business analyst, designs an application and then shares that application in the cloud -- where others can run it (or download it). Alteryx counts Wal-Mart as one of its customers, and Wal-Mart is using the platform for everything from choosing store locations to optimizing store space, and more. Check out some sample applications at www.gallery.alteryx.com.
Other Elevator Pitches featured: Hearsay Social (social media for the enterprise) and Taptera (enterprise mobile applications). Don't Forget To Register For Prizes
