December 6, 2016: Data Preparation State of the Union (Webinar)

O'Reilly-CommunityMost organizations are striving to convert data into a competitive advantage – but there’s an immediate and daunting problem: How do you unify and prepare your data for analysis? Large, heterogenous data volumes are spreading rapidly across most enterprises, and there’s a need for new solutions that allow for both self-service data preparation and enterprise data unification.

Join Tamr Co-Founder Ihab Ilyas, Trifacta Co-Founder Joseph Hellerstein, and Blue Hill Research Principal Analyst Toph Whitmore as they deliver a “State of the Union” on data preparation, and discuss how two distinct methods: self-service data preparation and enterprise data unification solve fundamentally different, but related challenges.

The webinar was held on Tuesday, December 6 at 1 pm ET/10 am PT. You can now watch the recording below, or view Data Preparation State of the Union directly on YouTube.
