Demand for Trifacta's Market-Leading Platform Accelerates as Customer Base Triples in 2017

 

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trifacta, the global leader in data wrangling, announced $48 million in financing from new strategic investors, including Columbia Pacific, Deutsche Börse, Ericsson, Google, and New York Life along with participation from existing investors Accel, Cathay Innovation, Greylock Partners, Ignition Partners, and Ridge Ventures. This brings Trifacta's total financing to $124 million to date.

Building on the company's more than 3x increase in customer count, the new funding will support continued development of Trifacta's award-winning data wrangling platform and accelerate the company's continued cloud and geographic expansion. According to IDC, the big data and business analytics market will be worth $210 billion by 2020, and the market for data wrangling technologies is anticipated to grow 2.5x faster than the market for traditional data preparation tools. In addition, Gartner reports 1 that data preparation technologies will be used in more than 50 percent of new data integration efforts for analytics by 2020.

"Investing in and partnering with Trifacta, an innovator with its leading data wrangling offering, helps us expand our capabilities in data-driven areas such as risk management, investment decision making and trading analytics meaningfully," said Ankur Kamalia, MD & Head of Venture Portfolio Management and DB1 Ventures, Deutsche Börse.

"Trifacta's cutting-edge technology, client success and vision position the company for continued growth," said Paul McNamara, VP of Ericsson Ventures. "Ericsson is honored to invest with Trifacta to help drive further momentum in data wrangling that will help our telecommunications customers to get actionable insights and create business value from their data."

"At New York Life, we're keenly focused on new analytics technologies to enhance our speed to insight," said Joel Albarella, Head of New York Life Ventures. "As part of this effort, we're investing in Trifacta for its forward-thinking approach to data wrangling."

Accelerating Corporate Momentum in 2017

Trifacta continues to engage customers deeply around their most important business initiatives, dramatically shrinking the most tedious, expensive, and time-consuming part of the analytics process. Trifacta automates the discovery of new insights by helping users who know the data best stitch together complex data across transactions, interactions and behavior.

"Commerzbank is a leading international commercial bank and the second largest bank in Germany. As we embarked on creating a Big Data & Advanced Analytics division within Commerzbank, we knew that data wrangling technology would be a critical investment for its success; Trifacta was absolutely the right choice," said Kerem Tomak, EVP & Divisional Board Member, Big Data & Advanced Analytics at Commerzbank. "Easy to use and integrate across a broad range of employees, Trifacta is a core part of our efforts to accelerate our analytics projects. As a result this will help us expand our existing efforts around data quality, fast response to ad-hoc requests, big data analytics monetization for retail and corporate clients, and risk and compliance reporting."

Using the Trifacta platform, customers are able to balance the need for self-service and the need for data governance through collaborative curation and crowdsourcing of new data products. This makes the data understandable and useful for analysis regardless of where it lives or how it is consumed. Trifacta makes wrangling data fun, using an entirely new approach - attacking the problem through user experience and machine learning. 

"Data is bigger, it's messier and it's changing faster than ever before. Solving for this requires customers to modernize their analytic stack to achieve better economics and improved agility. It has become essential to democratize the production of new data assets with self-service data wrangling in much the same way enterprises previously democratized the consumption of data with self-service BI," said Adam Wilson, CEO at Trifacta. "At precisely this moment, Trifacta offers a mature platform built for big data, cloud, and self-service. We also offer the credibility of being the pioneer and the established leader in the data wrangling market."

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29Pressemelding

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
