Winner of global data analytics prize to address Jersey Alteryx User Group

A Jersey accountant who scooped a global data analytics award less than a year after starting to use the software is to show Alteryx users her winning technique at the Jersey User Group this week.

Katrin Erb, Finance Automation and Product Manager, Standard Bank, won the Alteryx Grand Prix competition at the Inspire Europe 2018 Conference, becoming one of the top 500 Alteryx users in the world. She was partnered in the finals by Dan Hare, Founder, Continuum.

The Grand Prix final required competitors to analyse past Grand Prix qualifying and finishing times and work out how many turns there are in the Houston Grand Prix circuit to predict a finishing position – something Katrin and Dan managed in just 16 minutes.

Over 1,500 people attended the Inspire conference last month, including finance professionals from Jersey. The annual conference is designed to celebrate successes in disruptive technologies, bringing together people from across the business community to learn more about the latest advances in data analytics.

As well as highlights from Inspire, the Alteryx User Group will feature an overview of Alteryx by Stu Wilson, Head of Alteryx EMEA, and a session by Shaan Mistry, Solutions Architect Alteryx on advanced features of 2018.4.

Alteryx is the Channel Island’s leading self-service data platform and is used by a growing number of businesses. Current User Group members include professionals from across finance, management, the public sector, and many other industries.

Dan Hare, Founder, Continuum, said: “More and more organisations are recognising the importance of good data for their operations, and Alteryx is proving to be a very popular way for organisations to get transformative benefits in a quick, cost-effective way.

“Our last User Group was standing room only and with Stu, Katrin, and Shaan presenting at this event we expect it to be very popular.”

The next Alteryx User Group event takes place Thursday 15 November, from 12pm- 1.45pm at Digital Jersey Hub. Contact Continuum for details.
