Trifacta (www.trifacta.com), leader in data preparation with its Wrangler offering, today announced a new iteration of its portfolio with Photon Compute Framework. The company unveils an in-memory compute facility in addition to Apache Spark, MapReduce and with Apache Arrow compliance, a new open source in-memory columnar data format for the Hadoop ecosystem coming from the Drill project. The Apache Foundation announced very recently - Feb. 17, 2016 - that Arrow is now a top-level project. Trifacta will embed Photon directly within Wrangler and users will receive additional capabilities transparently with great benefits. In-memory means faster response times and immediate results, two fundamental criteria of choice at-scale. New dimension for Trifacta with this announcement, but also new competition, 2016 will be interesting.
