The GOAT of Data Prep: Trifacta Named 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Award for Data Preparation Tools

January 26, 2021

Big news to share—we’ve been named a Customers’ Choice in the December 2020 Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Data Preparation Tools!

Much like the G2 Grid or the Dresner Advisory Services report, the Gartner Peer Insights Customer Choice Awards are based upon the reviews of real technology users. We’re honored to continue receiving top marks from the users that are working day in and day out with our data preparation platform. 

Looking back on the early days of Trifacta, it’s incredible to think that many of these awards didn’t exist, or, at the very least, didn’t have a data preparation category. When we first started pitching our solution, everyone could resonate with the problem: up to 80% of time in any data project was spent preparing data. This created massive bottlenecks within organizations which slowed down time-to-insights and curbed innovation. But the concept of data preparation as a category on its own—was new. 

Now, data preparation is not only an established category among analysts and technology buyers alike, but it’s widely-regarded as an integral component of a modern data stack. It’s no surprise that the majority of modern data stacks are hosted in the cloud—cloud platforms and cloud data warehouses have claimed the lion’s share of the market in tandem with an explosion of SaaS (software as a solution) technologies. Within the stack, Trifacta simplifies the process of exploring, cleaning and preparing data for analytics and enables organizations to utilize the insights derived from their data more quickly. Trifacta is offered on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (Cloud Dataprep by Trifacta) and seamlessly integrates with cloud data warehouses such as Snowflake, and Databricks
