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:

Intelligent Automation

  • 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.
