“Trifacta delivers a strong balance for self-service by analysts and business users,” according to Little. “Trifacta leverages machine learning algorithms to automate and simplify the interaction with data, making data wrangling self-service for analysts and business users. A key element of its strategy is encouraging trials via its free Wrangler product. This approach serves double duty, as it also enables Trifacta to leverage a large corpus of data from the thousands of users of this free version to inform its machine learning models.”
