Paxata, a self-service data preparation specialist, has released its Paxata Spring 2019 update to its adaptive information platform. The release includes Intelligent Automation -- a new, smart algorithmic capability that enables
business analysts to automate and operationalize complex data prep projects and flows with the click of a button, accelerating the delivery of analytical
projects. Paxata Spring 2019 also extends ease of use for business consumers by enabling powerful zero-code, self-service transformations.
In the past, self-service and IT-centric data
integration have been two different, disconnected workstreams where business
consumers create their own analytics sandboxes and IT develops and distributes
corporate data assets. With Paxata Spring 2019, organizations can now
accelerate their data prep and DataOps tasks in a single, integrated platform.
The new release empowers all contributors -- such as data analysts, data
engineers, and citizen data scientists -- by enabling crowdsourcing and
collaboration of data profiling and data preparation tasks as well as cataloging,
operationalizing, and monitoring workflows.
Highlights of Paxata’s Spring 2019 capabilities include:
Algorithmic discovery of curated data assets and data prep projects
Sophisticated actions and triggers that automate flows based on a series of parameters or events
Monitoring and governance of data prep projects
Integration with other orchestration engines through REST APIs
Excel-like Self-Service Transformations
String operations for trimming, padding, repeating, or reversing field values
Search and replace, substitution, and regex functions
Date functions such as end of month, week of year, and working days
Numeric functions such as rounding up/down, square root, and logarithm
Paxata provides solutions
powered by smart algorithms that allow business audiences to easily prepare,
standardize, join, clean, and operationalize their data. Building upon its previous intelligent capabilities across data ingestion, data profiling, and data preparation, Paxata’s Intelligent Automationnow offers built-in
smart algorithms for operationalizing and automating workflows, abolishing the need for highly technical
people to manually draw boxes and lines on the screen. Leveraging these smart
algorithms, users can generate operational pipelines automatically and without
the need to involve scarce IT resources. The result is a full-service smart
system that brings data in, profiles it, and converts it into clean and
contextual information assets, then automatically operationalizes the workflows
-- all within a single platform.
