Trifacta Brings Self-Service Data Wrangling to the Desktop

Trifacta is bringing its data wrangling solution to users’ desktops, putting intuitive, self-service data wrangling immediately into the hands of workers everywhere.

“We’re allowing any user to download and be able to start using Trifacta’s approach to exploring and transforming data themselves in a free desktop application,” said Will Davis, director of product marketing at Trifacta.

Trifacta Wrangler’s unique hybrid architecture lets users’ process data safely on their desktop without ever sending it to Trifacta, while maintaining all of the benefits of a cloud hosted application, regularly pushing new features and enhancements without painful upgrades.

Combining decades of research in machine learning, data visualization, human-computer interaction and distributed processing, Trifacta Wrangler empowers users of all skill levels to discover, structure, clean, enrich, validate and publish their data for analysis using a connected desktop application.

“One of the reasons why we have developed this product is to allow any user to leverage Trifacta,” Davis said. “We’ve gotten so much inbound interest in using Trifacta for diverse data sets that might live on a user’s desktop and to explore and prepare those tool sets for analysis using Trifacta.”

With this release, anyone who works with data in Excel or visual analysis tools, such as Tableau, can use Trifacta for free to more efficiently explore and prepare diverse data for analysis.

“We want to remove the pain and technical requirements of data preparation,” Davis said. “This is a more efficient and streamlined approach for data preparation.”

With the release of Trifacta Wrangler, the flagship, Hadoop-focused Trifacta Data Wrangling solution will be renamed Trifacta Wrangler Enterprise.

Future plans for the platform include new features and bug fixes on a weekly basis to keep developing this tool, explained Alon Bartur, principal product manager at Trifacta.
