One Shining Moment

“ …it’s more than a contest, it’s more than a race,”  Luther Vandross

I’m incredibly excited to announce the next chapter in our company’s history: Alteryx, a leader in data science and analytics, has acquired ClearStory Data. Our mutual decision to join forces was driven by the strong synergies we see between the two companies and our aligned mission to provide the leading end-to-end self-service data analytics platform that fuels remarkable outcomes for organization’s key business initiatives.

From the start. ClearStory’s mission was to make it faster and easier for organizations to unlock value from diverse data assets. To fulfill on ‘faster,’ we embarked on our roadmap to automate complex data tasks from data profiling, to data discovery, to data modeling and we were the first to commercialize Apache Spark™ inside an analytics product to speed querying data at scale. To fulfill on ‘easier,’ we invested in creating a simple, engaging and collaborative user experience so anyone could work with data and consume insights within an intuitive and interactive experience. Faster and easier continues to be a major market need. Whatever form it takes, the impact on customers has to be felt.

Fast forward to today’s news. We are thrilled to join forces with Alteryx and a stellar team who shares our culture of innovation and is on the same passionate mission to make data analytics and data science faster, smarter and easy for everyone.

Alteryx sure is one “shining star” as some call them. Alteryx is known globally for their end-to-end analytics platform that empowers data analysts and data scientists alike to break data barriers, deliver insights and experience getting to answers faster from all data. They’ve demonstrated impeccable execution, phenomenal growth, and customers absolutely love to use their products. With high customer expectations in today’s world, their customer enthusiasm says a lot. We are so proud to be joining a company so dedicated to delighting customers.

So what’s next? The entire ClearStory team will join Alteryx and extend Alteryx’s technology presence in the heart of Silicon Valley. We will continue to accelerate innovation in analytics and data science, break new ground to ease complex analytics, and help fuel the company’s accelerated market growth.

As I reflect on ClearStory Data’s journey, all of this would not have been possible without the support of our customers, partners, investors, community, and everyone that embraced our mission. I personally want to convey my sincere gratitude and thank everyone for collaborating closely through the years and embarking on this journey with us. We really look forward to continuing to work closely together to build the future of analytics.

Expect to hear more from us as we enter the world of this shining star. More here.
