Data Preparation Tools Overview

What is Data Preparation Tools?

Data preparation tools are a new class of software products designed to enable business analysts and data scientists to bypass data warehouses to perform some data integration and data preparation themselves before analysis. Data preparation tools can search for and access data throughout an organization, combine it with other, external data sets and do data cleansing and conversions as required before feeding the data back into business intelligence systems for analysis.

These emerging tools use machine learning under the hood so that they can iterate and learn where to find insights in data sets, without being explicitly programmed to do so.
