Big Data and Hadoop Analysis

Challenges with big data and Hadoop

Businesses and organizations today need to transform and prepare data of all shapes and sizes to obtain valuable business insights. Many of these businesses are implementing big data platforms like Hadoop. Unfortunately many businesses that have implemented big data platforms aren’t achieving the desired results set out for these initiatives. One of the major misconceptions about working with big data is that to be successful you need to invest in a potentially expensive technology infrastructure. These infrastructures require retooling and technical support, which has historically been an IT responsibility. A significant challenge facing organizations working with big data is data preparation and getting data ready for analysis. The data preparation process has long been considered “janitorial work” and can take up to 80% of the time allocated for analysis. Trifacta provides a self-service data preparation solution for big data and Hadoop.
