The latest platform update from Alteryx gives administrators new controls over the data management process and includes a series of enhancements to the vendor’s Analytics Hub.
The vendor unveiled Alteryx 2020.4 in a blog post on Nov. 18, and all of the new features and upgrades outlined in the release are now generally available.
Alteryx, a data management specialist founded in 1997 and based in Irvine, Calif., introduced the Analytics Hub to its platform in its June 2020 update — Alteryx 2020.2 — as a place where organizations can consolidate their analytic assets to enable collaboration.
The hub is designed to eliminate the disconnected places that separate an individual department’s data from another’s, and using digital process automation it assists users throughout the data management process, while freeing data scientists from certain mundane, time-consuming tasks.
Upgrades to the Analytics Hub in the updated platform are focused around giving administrators better control over the platform job queue, including the ability to assign priority to certain jobs, assign tags to certain jobs so they can be run on a specific worker node, and activating and managing worker license keys.
