Data preparation tools are applications that aid in the process of cleaning, structuring and enriching raw data into a desired output for analysis. Those tasked with data preparation for analytics or other downstream uses undoubtedly know firsthand that the biggest challenge of data preparation is the time-consuming nature of the work—up to 80% of the overall analysis process is historically spent cleaning or preparing data. We built a data preparation tool, Trifacta, to solve for this.
