Data Engineering with Alteryx

By: Paul Houghton

Overview of this book

Alteryx is a GUI-based development platform for data analytic applications. Data Engineering with Alteryx will help you leverage Alteryx’s code-free aspects which increase development speed while still enabling you to make the most of the code-based skills you have. This book will teach you the principles of DataOps and how they can be used with the Alteryx software stack. You’ll build data pipelines with Alteryx Designer and incorporate the error handling and data validation needed for reliable datasets. Next, you’ll take the data pipeline from raw data, transform it into a robust dataset, and publish it to Alteryx Server following a continuous integration process. By the end of this Alteryx book, you’ll be able to build systems for validating datasets, monitoring workflow performance, managing access, and promoting the use of your data sources.

Technical requirements

This chapter will focus on using Alteryx Server and how to control the environment. To implement the concepts discussed in this chapter, you will need to be an administrator on your server. Additionally, we will discuss how to secure the data environment. In this discussion, we will use Amazon Web Services (AWS) as an example cloud provider, but the concepts will apply to other cloud providers and on-premises situations as well.
