According to a new press release, “Alation Inc., the collaborative data company, and Trifacta, the global leader in data wrangling, today announced the extension of their partnership to include the joint delivery of an integrated solution for self-service data discovery and preparation — required elements of modern analytics platforms. The unified solution leverages deep integration between the two products to drive a seamless experience for the data analyst, no matter which application they start from. Analysts can start to work with data from either the Alation Data Catalog or Trifacta Wrangler Enterprise. No matter where they begin their experience, whether it starts with data discovery or with data preparation, users can access data catalog and data wrangling features within a single interface. The integration tames self-service analytic chaos by providing analysts with a choice of where to start the often iterative process of preparing data for self-service analysis.”
Satyen Sangani, CEO of Alation, commented, “Organizations are embracing self-service analytics but struggle with the distributed nature of self-service analytic projects. Analysts need the tools that allow them to work productively and in a more collaborative manner with data experts — from finding, understanding and trusting their data, to preparing that data for analysis… Our partnership with Trifacta enables analysts to accomplish all of that within a single solution across databases and Hadoop — making their work much more efficient.”
The release continues, “Many enterprises already understand that a productive self-service analytics organization requires more than business intelligence (BI) and analytics tools, including joint Alation and Trifacta customers eBay, MarketShare and Munich Re. Analysts must have a deep and wide understanding of the complete lineage of data. They must be able to discover, wrangle and trust their data to achieve the benefits of self-service analytics.”
