Alteryx and DataCamp Partner to Bring Analytics Upskilling to All

With global companies looking to increase headcount for data capabilities, new partnerships extend the reach of Alteryx SparkED to meet growing demand for diverse analytics talent

IRVINE, Calif., April 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Alteryx, Inc., a leader in AI for enterprise analytics, announced two new upskilling partnerships from Alteryx SparkED, the company's data analytics education program, to grow the pipeline of diverse analytics talent and empower individuals looking to enhance their career prospects with in-demand skills.
