SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 5, 2015) - Trifacta, the leading data wrangling solution for exploratory analytics, today announced it has been named to The Channel Company's 2015 CRN® Big Data 100. The annual list recognizes companies that bring innovative tools, technologies and services to market, helping organizations productively manage, process and analyze the increasing volume of information being generated today.

"When it comes to selecting building block technologies for big data solutions, channel partners need a dependable resource they can rely on to identify the key tools available," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "We congratulate the vendors of the CRN Big Data 100 for their innovation and commitment to helping businesses manage the big data challenge."

Businesses continue to struggle with exploding volumes, speed and variety of information being generated, and solution providers are looking to tame that "big data" with solutions that help customers turn it all into meaningful statistics. Understanding this challenge, the CRN editorial team has identified key vendors that are bringing innovative business analytics, data management, and infrastructure technologies and services to market.

"Today, anyone who works with data, from business analysts to data scientists, needs a better way to prepare data of all different shapes and sizes for analysis. Trifacta simplifies the work required to prepare data for analysis, making data useful more quickly and with less effort than any other solution," said Adam Wilson, CEO of Trifacta. "We're honored to be named to CRN's Big Data 100 list. This recognition provides great validation for our mission to create radical productivity for people who analyze data."
