In the last decade, a lot of innovation in the data space took place to address the need for more storage, more compute, hybrid environments, data management automation, self-service analytics, and lower TCO to operate business at scale. Organizations have matured and determined that what they have today is not enough to sustain the business and expand for growth. In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, data is the lifeblood of organizations. Unlocking its potential and transforming it into actionable insights is a key driver of success. However, traditional data architecture patterns have often posed significant challenges, leading to data silos, inefficiencies, and limited accessibility. This is where the groundbreaking partnership between Alteryx and Dremio steps in, ushering in a new era of data accessibility and analytics.

Dremio, the easy and open data lakehouse, has long championed a better approach to data utilization. Their core value proposition revolves around breaking down the barriers of data silos and proprietary tools.

In a landscape where data-driven decisions are paramount, the partnership between Alteryx and Dremio is a game-changer. It offers a glimpse into a future where data silos are a thing of the past, and advanced analytics is within reach for everyone, regardless of technical expertise. This collaboration embodies the spirit of innovation, empowerment, and progress, propelling businesses towards a brighter and more data-enriched future.

Alteryx and Dremio bring together a simplified, scalable lakehouse where data analysts and data scientists can immediately build their automated workflows to prepare their data for analytical consumption. Alteryx can write back the data output of the workflows into Dremio to take advantage of its fast performance on object storage and schema evolution with no side effects.

Organizations prefer tools that will allow them to be very nimble, and focus on their core competencies. With Alteryx code-free, intuitive interface and end-to-end data preparation automation coupled with Dremio’s performant, no-copy architecture lakehouse, it enables organizations to make revenue generating decisions faster than ever before.

Dremio delivers the following data lakehouse capabilities:

  • Access data on-prem or in the cloud. Alteryx users have direct access to data using SQL-native semantics. Because of Dremio’s no-copy architecture, users always get a consistent view of their data.
  • Simplified data lakehouse environment. It gets expensive and cumbersome to maintain multiple environments. Dremio enables organizations to have dev, test, prod in one lakehouse environment using branches.
  • Because of Dremio’s “git-like” data operations capabilities, users can instantly promote and audit data changes from a development branch into production.
  • No more spending hours recovering from data operations failure. Recovery from failure is immediate with Dremio.

Users can use Alteryx’s in-database capability to push down queries to Dremio that can process terabytes to petabytes of data that meets or exceeds business SLA requirements. With Alteryx’s write-back capability, users can share insights with other data consumers.
