Trifacta forms strategic alliance with Cloudera to deliver data transformation agility for the enterprise

Data Transformation Platform pioneer teams with Big Data Hadoop market
leader to bridge the gap between data and people, transforming raw data into actionable data

San Francisco – March 18, 2014 – Trifacta, a Data Transformation Platform pioneer today announced a strategic alliance with Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered byApache Hadoop™, to speed the transformation of raw data into refined and actionable data. The alliance gives a wide range of users, including business analysts, data scientists and IT programmers, a new way to drive business results with data insight.

“Our partnership with Trifacta speeds the analysis of all forms of data stored in a Hadoop-powered enterprise data hub and delivers the value of business insight for Cloudera customers. Rapidly exploring and transforming data stored at scale in Hadoop to quickly discover new insights has been a huge barrier to maximizing the value of a Hadoop cluster,” said Mike Olson, chief strategy officer and co-founder of Cloudera. “Enterprises around the world are deploying enterprise data hubs, but need a well designed application for raw data exploration and transformation – Trifacta meets that need.”

Cloudera is the leading enterprise analytic data management company powered by Apache Hadoop™, enabling enterprises to store and process data at scale. For business analysis, that data must then be transformed from raw formats into actionable data a process where raw data is evaluated, structured and cleansed. Traditionally, that has been a manual process, taking as much as 80 percent of an analyst’s time. Manual transformation is a bottleneck that stalls projects and inhibits the data stack’s ability to scale to the needs of the business. By the end of 2015, Gartner estimates 85 percent of Fortune 500s will be unable to exploit Big Data’s advantages. Trifacta clears the bottleneck and allows users to quickly and easily transform raw data into actionable form, whether for immediate insights or for use in analysis tools.

The partnership with Cloudera will include joint development, certification, and solution collaboration with customers.

“In Cloudera’s Hadoop Distribution, data is kept fluid and accessible, rather than locked down in rigid processes and fixed schemas. This encourages people to do creative, high-value work with data going well beyond traditional accounting and reporting, to core data-driven value propositions like improving customer experience, identifying operational inefficiencies, and assessing the probability of fraudulent behavior,” said Joe Hellerstein, CEO of Trifacta. “We’re seeing organizations like Lockheed and others working with data in this way using a combination of Trifacta and Cloudera. Our Data Transformation Platform provides a uniquely intuitive and powerful model for manipulating data in the Cloudera stack. It enables analysts to be far more productive and agile in working with data.”
