The Year of the Wrangle:
Highlights from Strata Data

October 5, 2017

Trifacta has been a regular at the Strata Data conference as a participant, speaker, sponsor, and vendor exhibitor. However, this year’s conference in New York proved to be our busiest to date. With two claimed Cloudera Impact awards, several Trifacta-led presentations, and a flurry of announcements and press activity, we were excited to see Trifacta (and our customers) recognized in more ways than one.

Over the last few years, we’ve seen data wrangling gain significant traction as a critical component of today’s modern analytics platform, but this year’s conference seemed to be less about the market itself and more about our position in it. Among customers, partners, and conference attendees, Trifacta was routinely named the leader in wrangling. Below, we’ve recapped some of the exciting events that occurred at Strata, as well as our news throughout the week.

Noteworthy Announcements

  • Leidos CAADS Partnership: To kick off the week, we officially announced that Trifacta has been selected as the data wrangling technology within the Leidos Collaborative Advanced Analytics and Data Sharing (CAADS) platform, which was further highlighted during our joint session at the conference. With the biggest government agencies leveraging the CAADS platform to solve complex national problems, we’re proud to partner with Leidos. Learn more about the partnership here.  
  • Deutsche Boerse Investment: A few weeks ago, we announced Deutsche Börse as a new Trifacta customer that wrangles a variety of data to drive new exchange market products. During Strata, they also announced their strategic investment in Trifacta, which was covered in Bloomberg.
  • DataRobot Partnership: We announced our partnership with DataRobot, a machine learning platform, with a joint-customer reference from Consensus Corporation, a subsidiary of Target. The partnership enables organizations like Consensus to improve the efficiency and scale of performing predictive analytics to identify churn by modernizing data wrangling and automating machine learning.

Strata Sessions

  • Trifacta & Leidos Session on CDC Use Case: Our joint session with Leidos and the CDC, featuring Trifacta customer success manager Connor Carreras, showcased how the CDC is utilizing Trifacta within the Leidos CAADS platform to link the outbreak of HIV to opioid usage. Given the timeliness of the opioid crisis, we were excited to help share the CDC’s groundbreaking findings.
