Alteryx Helps Accelerate Deployment and Management of Machine Learning Models on Amazon Web Services

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 29, 2017 — Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE: AYX), a leader in self-service data analytics, today announced that customers can take advantage of one-click, self-service predictive model deployment capabilities of the Alteryx solution on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Alteryx has also achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Machine Learning (ML) Competency status. The designation recognizes Alteryx for providing business analysts, data scientists and ML practitioners with automated, cutting-edge tools to create and deploy predictive models on AWS.

Deployment of predictive models continues to be a major challenge for many companies, with only 13% of data scientists surveyed by Rexer Analytics saying their models always get deployed. Alteryx Promote was designed to help customers address the labor-intensive process of getting models into production by providing an end-to-end data science system for developing, deploying and managing predictive models and real-time decision APIs. Alteryx Promote was also designed to allow data scientists and analytics teams to build, manage and deploy predictive models to production faster — and more reliably — without the need for writing any custom deployment code.

“Our analytics team was losing ownership of our predictive models and we wanted something that was easy to deploy, reliable, and worked within our AWS production environment,” said Mark Gately, director of decision science at Tendril, Inc. “The Alteryx solution allows Tendril’s Data Analytics team to control models through the entire data science lifecycle, from prototyping through to development and retraining.”

The AWS Competency program highlights AWS Partner Network (APN) members that have passed a rigorous audit of their security, architecture and customer adoption. Alteryx has exhibited proven success in the ML category, which recognizes solutions that give data scientists and ML practitioners the tools to take their data to the next level as actionable predictive models.

“Clean and annotated training data is the foundation of modern machine learning,” said Joseph Spisak, global lead for machine learning partnerships, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “It fuels state of the art algorithms in computer vision and natural language understanding; however, acquiring it takes time and resources. We are very excited to have Alteryx join the Machine Learning Competency Program to help our customers spend less time preparing their data and more time creating intelligence.”

“So many of our customers are turning to AWS to increase agility, scalability and performance as organizations integrate data and analytics into the very fabric of their business,” said Ashley Kramer, vice president of product management at Alteryx. “We’re thrilled to have achieved AWS ML Competency status and look forward to serving our customers with ML capabilities on AWS.”
