Reaching New Heights in Data Wrangling

March 16, 2017

Over the past couple weeks, Trifacta has been at the center of some pretty big news. First, we were announced as the #1 vendor in Dresner’s End User Data Preparation Market Study, a comprehensive evaluation driven by Dresner’s findings and user feedback, for the third year in a row. Then came the launch of Google Cloud Dataprep, the latest offering on Google Cloud Platform and built in collaboration with Trifacta, which InfoWorld called “the most significant” of Google’s unveilings and VentureBeat more specifically explained as “an embedded version of startup Trifacta’s Wrangler Enterprise app.” Finally, topping off these announcements was the release of Forrester’s first-ever Wave on data preparation, where Trifacta scored the highest across the board. It’s been an exciting few weeks, to say the least.

Naturally, when people ask us, “Why Trifacta?”, we respond with data. We have the most users , with usage in over 135 countries that amounts to tens of thousands users across more than 4,500 companies. We’re the leader in analysts and media coverage, with recognition as the leading solution from preeminent analyst firms. And we’re the leader in partners, with over 80 world-class technology partners, consultants and resellers.

Our latest announcements only further solidify Trifacta’s record performance amongst users (as seen from Dresner’s survey participants), analysts (Forrester; Dresner Advisory Services) and partners/resellers (Google Cloud Dataprep). The groundwork that we invested in building Trifacta, which dates back to years of academic research at Berkeley and Stanford, has brought us to a product that is now being used at some of the biggest companies around the world. We’ve reached a significant point in our growth as a company, and in the success that we’re seeing among our customers.

Today, we’re confident that Trifacta is the undisputed leader in data wrangling.

Below, we’re excited to share the highlights from our three recent milestones—a trifecta of Trifacta announcements, if you will. And for a closer look at our award-winning approach to data wrangling, sign up for our free product, Trifacta Wrangler.

Dresner’s End User Data Preparation Market Study

  • Trifacta was ranked #1, for the third consecutive year, out of 28 vendors based upon our support for usability, integration, output, data manipulation, and deployment.
  • The most important data prep deployment features are scheduling/reviewing transformations and the ability to iteratively sample data, which has long been integral to Trifacta’s approach.
  • Across three years of data collection, respondents report overall improvement to their data preparation approach, Dresner reports, which indicates overall maturation of the market.
