Today’s organizations are collecting more data than ever. TDWI research indicates that organizations are collecting 100s of terabytes and even petabytes of data. Much of this is moving to cloud platforms. The increasing volume, diversity, and complexity of data is putting pressure on organizations to rethink traditional methods of preparing data for reporting, analysis, sharing, and use.
Data transformation is often overlooked as the critical step in the data integration process, which involves bringing together data from various sources and making it available for analysis and reporting. Enterprise data transformation can include converting data from one format or structure to another, joining data, enriching data, and shaping and flattening data; this can take time to execute—especially using manual processes. In fact, in many organizations, the biggest overall complaint about data transformation is that it takes too much time.
How should organizations modernize their data transformation processes? Join this TDWI webinar to learn more about the who, what, when, where, and why of modern data transformation.
