Data transformation provider Trifacta on Feb. 18 started a free trial of its software at Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose, Calif.
Data transformation is all about preparing data sets to make them optimal for use in new-gen IT systems. Using this free trial, data analysts, data engineers and data scientists can now experience Trifacta firsthand to more efficiently discover, structure, cleanse, enrich and distill big data stored in Hadoop.
The Trifacta Trial Program allows users to test the platform for wrangling big, diverse data without having to configure hardware or software. The 14-day trial includes sample data, step-by-step tutorials and support resources to assist new users. Trial participants also have the ability to upload and transform their own data sets for downstream analysis or visualization.
Users may sign up for the trial in person at the Strata + Hadoop World in the Hadoop Solutions Showcase at Trifacta booth #823 Feb. 18 through Feb. 20.
