Let’s see how things are shaping up for this announcement.
Factors to Consider
Alteryx’s first-quarter results are expected to reflect the impact of an expanding clientele, driven by increasing demand for a self-service data science and analytics platform.
Further, improved customer spending trends, particularly from larger and more stable companies on digital transformation initiatives, are expected to have benefited top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter. Notably, Alteryx ended the fourth quarter of 2020 with 7,083 customers, up 16.4% year over year.
Additionally, an expanding partner base that includes the likes of PwC, HCL, Adobe, UiPath and Snowflake, has been a key catalyst.
However, first-quarter results are expected to have been negatively impacted by seasonality. Moreover, Alteryx’s go to market initiatives are expected to hurt top-line growth in the to-be-reported quarter.
