Trifacta Data Transformation Platform

The Trifacta Data Transformation platform is designed to help data analysts do the work associated with data prep without having to manually write code. Our solution enables business-oriented data analysts to visualize the content of data in Hadoop and visually interact with that data to define a transformation script that gets executed as a Hadoop job (using Spark or MapReduce) to process and output the data in the desired form for different downstream analytic purposes. Our Data Transformation Platform sits between the Hadoop data storage & processing environment and visualization or analytics tools used downstream in the analysis process.

Application Description

The overall complexity of the data preparation process - forced our team to develop an entirely new approach for how this work should be done - one that enables data analysts to do the prep work themselves instead of relying upon a technical resource who often lacks context around the data and business issues influencing the analysis.

Following are the dependent components within MapR distribution including Apache Hadoop:

  1. Pig

  2. HDFS Java API

  3. WebHDFS

  4. HCatalog/WebHCatalog

  5. Zookeeper (we at least use the Hadoop cluster's ZK some of the time)
