Alteryx, Inc. (NYSE: AYX) has unveiled its enhanced APA platform, which it said it designed to “put automation in the hands of all data workers”, from line-of-business users to skilled analysts and data scientists.

Alteryx believes that APA Platforms can empower and upskill the market of 54 million data workers to solve business critical problems that drive top-line growth, returns and efficiency, as well as bigger societal challenges. The enhanced platform unifies analytics, data science and business process automation in one; a converged approach Alteryx said enables high-impact business outcomes and rapid upskilling of people across an organisation.

A launch event will be live-streamed over LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube, Periscope and the Alteryx corporate website on Thursday, May 21, at 20:30 PCT. During the stream, Dean Stoecker, co-founder and CEO of Alteryx will join leaders from Coca-Cola, PwC and IDC, about APA’s impact on digital transformation.

“Businesses are looking for transformational outcomes and have a heightened urgency to digitally transform. This requires a new kind of platform with an organizational capacity to make every worker across a company a data worker,” said Stoecker (pictured).

“The analytics category is fast maturing, and capitalising on the potential of APA demands a unified platform that makes analytics, data science and process automation accessible to all. Human ingenuity is essential in creating any form of successful automation and when humans and machines work together as a means of amplifying intelligence, we can solve remarkable problems.”

Last week, Alteryx also launched a major new public upskilling initiative called ADAPT, a free analytics training curriculum and certification program for those whose employment was impacted by Covid-19.
