The last year has been an unprecedented year for many reasons, and the Alteryx Community proactively undertook several initiatives to help our customers and the wider analytics community. First, we launched the Virtual Solution Center (VSC) on the community. The VSC provides free consulting sessions to Alteryx customers and prospects from a team of over 100 engineers and architects. Year-to-date, we've had over 3826 sessions booked by clients through the community.  

In addition, Alteryx rolled out the ADAPT (Advancing Data and Analytics Potential Together) program, offering free software licenses, training and in-demand certifications via the Alteryx Community to people who found themselves out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, we've up-skilled over 13,500 individuals across more than 155 countries, with over 660 of those folks achieving core certification. These accomplishments have all the hallmarks of effective teamwork and laser focus on the end user community. 

One thing that makes Alteryx unique is that the executive team (up to and including the CEO) has been incredibly supportive since day one and continues to preach the importance of a vibrant community. That support shines through in the consistently high outcomes in critical Customer Success and Support KPIs: 85%+ support case deflection rate, 80%+ resolution rate (#1 across Khoros communities), and 75%+ global CSAT score among users. Further, the Alteryx Community has proven to positively influence new and expanding business goals in Sales & Marketing. 

Finally, the Alteryx CommuniTEAM takes care of it’s own. Over the last year, our growth strategy has allowed us to hire a dedicated Community Operations Analyst to analyze community data, and provide it to our various community teams to make informed decisions. We also recently hired a Program Manager dedicated to managing our ACE (Alteryx Certified Expert / Super User program), as Alteryx knows the value of such programs. We also secured 7 promotions across our Community team, and continue to both hire from within and promote internally by up-skilling members of the Community team.  

The Alteryx Community truly exudes the meaning of community. Coming together, working towards a common goal, supporting others, and giving back.
