An increasing number of organizations are adopting DataOps practices in order to stay competitive. The tools, methodologies and organizational structures that businesses utilize for data management must evolve to improve the velocity, quality and reliability of analytics. Data preparation is the biggest bottleneck in any data project and therefore the biggest inhibitor to organizations efforts to drive new sources of value through data & analytics.
Trifacta and IBM have collaborated on a new data preparation tool, IBM InfoSphere Advanced Data Preparation. InfoSphere Advanced Data Preparation resides on top of a client’s data lake or data warehouse and provides automated transformation capabilities. Through the solution’s self-service user interface, business users, as well as data scientists, can access, explore, prepare and enrich datasets for analytics. In addition to data prep, the tool is designed to empower users of all levels of technical expertise to generate business-ready data insights.
IBM has the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of data and analytics capabilities in the market. The company’s strategy is to help enterprises across all industries extract new insights from the explosion of available data to drive competitive advantage. IBM delivers a full spectrum of analytics—from descriptive, predictive and prescriptive to cognitive—to turn big data into big insights and reinvent how decisions are made.
