Alteryx, a platform that provides a way to build analytical apps from a variety data sources via a workflow interface, got a big boost in funding - $60M Series B round led by SAP. Alteryx allows you to create a workflow by dragging in various data sources and other objects. You can then package this design into an application which you can share with others or you can use it to generate reports, pivot tables or whatever you require.
