Overview

Trifacta tries to solve the biggest problem of big data that awaits us in the coming years: the shortage of big data scientists and big data managers. They are not trying to do that by creating an education platform, but to build a system that makes big data easy to manipulate and rearrange so that there is not need for expensive big data scientists anymore in order to start with big data.

Trifacta was founded in 2012 by a professor in the Human-Computer Interaction research group at Stanford University, Jeffrey Heer, together with Sean Kandel and Joe Hellerstein who happens to be a professor of Computer Science at Berkeley. Together they want to rethink interfaces, systems and algorithms in order to make an intuitive, powerful and useful solution to analyse and manipulate data.

One of the problems Trifacta is addressing is called “Data Munging” or “Data wrangling”. Wikipedia defines it as “the process of converting or mapping data from one ‘raw’ form into another format that allows for more convenient consumption of the data”. The problem with data munging is that is becomes harder as it scales bigger. The real problem starts when people will have to start working with such data. Therefore, Trifacta combines machine-learning with human-computer interaction. This allows for an intuitive and intelligent solution that is easy to understand as no more writing of code will be required to format big data problems. This will definitely increase productivity and make big data more accessible.
