The State Of Data Preparation In 2019

Over the past few years, data preparation has emerged as a stand-alone category within data management and analytics. A technology category that originated out of joint research across UC Berkeley and Stanford, it is now recognized as a critical technology by end users, organizations and industry analysts alike. Data preparation has evolved tremendously since the category first emerged in 2015. So what’s new? How far have we come? Where are we headed in the future?

Join this latest Data Science Central webinar with Dresner Advisory Service’s Chief Research Officer, Howard Dresner, for an overview of the data preparation market. In the session, Howard reviews findings from his 2019 “Wisdom of the Crowds Market Study” on data preparation, compiled from end user responses.

This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • How data preparation is being utilized within organizations – what users & departments utilize data prep?
  • What are the most critical features of data preparation technologies?
  • Differences between traditional ETL technologies and this new generation of data preparation tools.
