On a future cloud version of Alteryx:
Where we have been pretty vocal, and [what] customers seem to be resonating with, is the notion of, ‘Can we deploy the Designer product in a browser to allow our largest customers a much easier way to deploy the software?’ Thick client on a desktop is much harder to manage than just simply entitling a user and having them go to a browser. We did show a prototype version of that at our conference last year. That’s kind of the direction we’re going.
At some point, I imagine, for some class of customer, we’ll introduce a cloud version. Frankly, in doing so, the concept of Designer and Server may end up blending together. Because we would essentially offer much of what Server offers through that service. But really, the focus is on, how do we help our largest clients massively deploy Designers through a browser rather than a thick client install.”

On APA platform:
Rubin: “Part of what you’re going to see from us under this new defined category of APA is significant innovation over the next 12 to 18 months. More so than you’ve probably seen from us previously at all.

“We also are going to continue heavy innovation around ease of use. That is a big pillar of our development efforts. [Our goal is] not just to make the platform more sophisticated, but [to] make it just drop-dead easy for data workers who may not have as much comfort and experience working with data...And then how do you take data analysts and move them up the curve to behave like data scientists? And so you’re just going to see us continue to press on sophistication of the platform along with ease of use.”
