What is Data Wrangling?

Data wrangling is the process of accessing, transforming and mapping raw data from one or many sources together for use in downstream applications like analytics or transactional systems.

Overcoming the Challenge of Data Wrangling With Modern Solutions

The tools and solutions of yesterday were not designed to deal with the world of today where data is increasingly distributed, of mixed types and larger volumes.

At the same time data is driving just about every outcome and decision that is made in an organization.

This is an impossible situation for any IT organization as more and more people need the data to work with.  This requires a self service solution for data preparation for analysts so they can take on more difficult scenarios and deliver wins faster.

Modern Data Wrangling Requirements

There are typically four steps using Put It Forward that make up the data wrangling process.

1. Data Discovery and Mapping

Accessing the data sources and linking the fields needed into a data staging area.

2. Data Cleansing and Normalization

Here you remove the errors and outliers in your data that aren't needed then structure it for downstream use.

3. Data Enrichment and Validation

Combine data with other attributes or apply calculations to derive other insights which might be used in the target system.

4. Publishing and Syndication

Data is mapped into downstream environments and systems for consumption.  Syndication happens when the sets of data need to be published to multiple targets.
