Re AYX,
there is a lot of support for AYX on this board, and as I don't own any I had a look to see what their product does.
From what I can tell they sell software for people that can't program in python or R / or it's faster to develop solution for analytics on data using AYX tools than python or R.

AYX tools are rather expensive.

However, there is a competitor called KNIME that offers the same concept, but their tools are significantly cheaper. Gartner and users I found rate KNIME as good as AYX.

So from my perspective, it looks like AYX's growth could be limited by a competitor in their space. Or this should put pressure on their margins.

I would like to hear what others think with respects to AYX's competitors and its future growth. The MF page for AYX does list possible competition as something to watch for.
