What is Data Blending?

Challenges with data blending 

Are you inundated with data? Is your data difficult to access and use? Are you able to analyze all the data you collect? Then you might need resources to help with data blending.

Data blending is a process that allows the users to quickly get value from multiple data sources by helping them see patterns between multiple data sources.

Most companies and organizations are collecting as much data in one week as they used to collect in an entire year. Even though companies and organizations are collecting and creating more data, they are unable to use the bulk of it, which is where data blending and data wrangling can help.

A leading analyst firm estimates that most companies analyze less than 20% of their data. Why is this? Preparing data and blending large, diverse datasets for analysis is time-consuming, messy and often left to data analysts or data scientists to deal with. For most datasets, data analysts don’t have the right tool and are stuck with applications like Microsoft Excel or similar spreadsheets that were not designed for data wrangling and data blending. This can present a challenge for a data analyst or business user by slowing or stalling the process of analysis.
