There is a plethora of intelligent software providers all claiming to simplify Big Data and Trifacta just joined the ranks. What makes this group different than all the rest? Overall, not much.
Trifacta is a group of computer scientists that united, formed a company and started re-evaluating the way humans, software and data interact. Now they are preparing for a big release that will drastically simplify Big Data according to TechCrunch’s article“Accel Partners Big Data Fund Invests $4.3 Million In Trifacta”.
The newly formed Trifacta is creating a flexible interface that functions with a variety of platforms like Hadoop clusters and relational Databases:
The user will be able to pull a data set, or perhaps just a sample of it, into memory and use Trifacta to explore the through an interface that includes different ways of visualizing the data. The application will suggest different operations you might want to perform and there will previews of what the effects of a particular operation might be. Once you’ve decided on the operations you want to perform, the code or queries are generated.
Businesses need reliable software with a flexible platform that can handle data collection with information distribution and Trifacta talks a good game. However, there are well established information management providers that have been delegating Big Data solutions for a decade. Entrepreneurs that use proven information intelligence software with the latest in semantic tools achieve relevant results, increasing both efficiency and ROI.
