Trifacta Presents on Why User Interface Options for Hadoop Are Essential

Alon Bartur, Joe McKenney and Jingshu Chen to Speak at Hadoop Summit, San Jose 2015

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2015) - Trifacta, the leading data wrangling solution for exploratory analytics, today announced that Alon Bartur, Joe McKenney and Jingshu Chen of Trifacta will be speaking at Hadoop Summit, San Jose. The session will explore how the expansion of Hadoop users, beyond technologists and data scientists, necessitates data products that meet the needs of both technical and non-technical business users to ensure success.

"The Hadoop user base has drastically grown since its inception. The first Hadoop users were highly technical. Now, Hadoop is being utilized by a larger group within organizations that includes data scientists, analysts and line-of-business users," said Alon Bartur, principal product manager, Trifacta. "Hadoop users will continue to change, and with that change comes the challenge of creating a single product that a wide range of users with varying degrees of data experience can easily utilize."

The complex nature of the data landing in Hadoop, and the types of exploratory analysis occurring on the platform, often require an extensive amount of preparation or wrangling before any analysis can occur. To ensure the success of an organization's Hadoop deployment, the platform must be complemented by the right set of tooling to empower everyone from data scientists to line-of-business users to wrangle raw data for analysis.
