We’re excited to launch the public beta of Zoho DataPrep, and we welcome you all to explore our all-new data preparation solution!
Why Zoho DataPrep?
Businesses today face a veritable onslaught of volatile data, and data analysts and scientists spend over 80% of their time preparing data before they can draw insights. The key data challenges faced by businesses today are: data in silos, increasing volume and velocity of data, and unstructured data. Most data preparation activities are routine, tedious, time-consuming, and can be quickly automated using Zoho DataPrep.
What is Zoho DataPrep?
Zoho DataPrep is self-service data preparation software that helps organizations prepare data by automatically identifying errors, discovering data patterns, and transforming and enriching data, all without the need for coding. It also helps in setting up pipelines to sync prepared data to Zoho Analytics, or to data warehouses.
Import data from a wide variety of sources
You can import data into Zoho DataPrep from different data sources, such as files, feeds, FTP servers, cloud storage, databases, and data warehouses, making it easier to bring your data together.
Augmented data preparation: Cleansing, transformation, and enrichment
DataPrep continuously measures the quality of your data and identifies ways to fix errors, by providing intelligent suggestions. Data quality charts can be used to filter data and resolve issues using the various transforms available in DataPrep.
There are over 250 transforms and functions to choose from in DataPrep. You can combine datasets using join and append, remove duplicate records, find and replace values, cluster similar data and merge them, work with JSON data, create buckets, unpivot data, convert units, and more.
You can also enrich your data using machine learning techniques, like sentiment analysis, keyword extraction, and language detection, among many others.
Ruleset templates save time on repeated tasks
Using the ruleset templates in Zoho DataPrep, you can reuse the data preparation rules applied in one dataset to other datasets, without having to prepare each dataset individually. You can even share the ruleset templates with others in your organization.
Automated scheduled exports
Cleansing data is never a one-time task, as organizations continue to gather data every day. Zoho DataPrep helps schedule the data import, preparation, and export steps so that you don’t have to perform the workflow manually each time. You can monitor the status of the schedules you set up, and get notified if there are any changes to the data quality.
