2022 - The Year of The Catfish / 2023 - The Year of The OC

Many of you may have seen across the Alteryx Community, and Linkedin/Twitter, that we have a couple of Alteryx ACEs at Bulien.

In early 2022, Chris was announced as an Alteryx ACE. This has been a long-term goal of Chris’, since starting Bulien and becoming a legend in the Alteryx community. He’s been playing the part for a good while now, its good to see him looking it too.

At Alteryx Inspire 2023 in Las Vegas, the next cohort of Alteryx ACEs were announced and among them was “The OC” Owen Coyle.


Huge congratulations to both ACEs.

So, what is it?

If you ask Chris, we’re sure he’ll tell you in detail how awesome it makes him.  If you ask Owen, we bet he’d say he’s just getting started.

The truth is, being an ACE means a lot. ACEs are recognised directly by the worldwide Alteryx community for their influence, through webinars, videos, podcasts, being one of the top solutions authors, or helping out on the community. In Chris and Owen’s case, all of the above.



A Congratulations From us!

This award acknowledges many years of work with the platform and compliments his existing Alteryx Expert Certification Status.

Needless to say these achievements do not come easily and are not guaranteed based on volume of work, passing exams, or commercial success. To become an Alteryx ACE, one must demonstrate a consistent dedication to delighting in data and accelerating use of this fantastic platform for anyone to benefit. I hope you will agree – in particular if you have ever worked with either Chris or Owen (or heard one of their many engagements) – that their unique style enables Alteryx users worldwide to do exactly that.

Our congratulations again.

The Careful Line to Tread

There is a link below to Chris’ Linkedin post about becoming an ACE. We would encourage everyone to congratulate him *delicately*. Don’t let it go to his head please…
