Alteryx processes hundreds of billions of rows. The workflow design is vital to ensuring that the workflow runs efficiently, allowing for optimum processing. This chapter focuses on the foundational workflow optimization concepts and applying runtime selections to speed execution. A multitude of essential selections can be made to enhance your workflow. You will learn how to apply resource optimization to process data faster. Furthermore, you'll discover how your workflow is performing by using performance profiling.
The topics we'll examine include:
- Resource optimization and speed processing
- Performance profiling
- Connecting to data
- Alteryx file types
The ability to optimize workflow will set the platform for a powerful data preparation and data blending venture that we will cover in the next chapter.
