Join Trifacta’s founders and their customers to learn how Data Transformation is changing the way people work with data. Employing a unique combination of visualization, algorithmic suggestions and both human and machine intelligence, Data Transformation transforms raw data into clean and structured formats for analysis. By increasing data analyst productivity and giving business analysts direct access to Big Data for the first time, Trifacta’s technology increases the breadth of data they work with, significantly shortens “time to insight”, and enables better business decisions.
