Alteryx, Informatica Rev, Paxata, Tamr, and Trifacta lead as standalone data preparation solutions

Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 16, 2015: Blue Hill Research has published its latest vendor landscape on standalone Self-Service Data Preparation solutions: Five Key Vendors for Self-Service Data Preparation, featuring top recommendations for enterprises seeking a standalone data preparation solution: Alteryx, Informatica Rev, Paxata, Tamr, and Trifacta. This report serves as a guide for organizations seeking optimal solutions to tackle data wrangling and preparation challenges.

Self-Service Data Preparation has become an increasingly important capability for organizations as the enterprise data ecosystem has exploded in complexity and scale. With the challenges of Big Data, semi-structured data, third-party and government data sources, and the increasing demands of enterprise analytics, corporate data teams spend the majority of their time simply cleansing and transforming data into usable formats. Based on Blue Hill’s research activities, end-user inquiries, and vendor discussions, these five vendors are recommended as the starting point for enterprises seeking to augment data scientist capabilities with data preparation, augmentation, and unification tools.

Blue Hill Research Analyst James Haight says, “As organizations adjust to the new era of Big Data and face constraints around data talent scarcity, a new generation of tools has emerged to help augment the work of data analysts through machine learning and intelligent workflows. Blue Hill believes that these vendors provide necessary tools to support the fundamental data analyst challenge of working with clean data.”
