On October 16, Integration participated in the Alteryx Inspire event in London, where our TechKnowledge Services team won the Alteryx Analytics Excellence Award. This award honors companies who bring best practices to their use of Alteryx in solving analytical challenges involving large quantities of data in a short amount of time.
THE AWARDED CASE
Integration was awarded for an analysis developed with a nonprofit organization that has been working since 2015 to propose and implement an innovative educational model that will support improved student outcomes in elementary and high schools.
One of the key challenges of implementing the model was determining the allocation of classes and teachers, as the analysis needed to account for several restrictions regarding infrastructure, work hours, distance between schools and teacher specialization, among others. These complex variables could not be accurately assessed using a traditional programming model. As a solution, Integration Consulting created a custom, in-depth algorithm to identify a feasible average between numerous factors—with the help of Alteryx. The output will facilitate the implementation of a new educational model in 2020, which has the potential to impact standardized test scores for up to 40 percent of students through full, as opposed to half-day, class schedules.
