Improving Data Prep and Profiling: Learn how to spend more time building models with Denodo and Daman Consulting

Data Scientists spend 70% of their time doing data preparation and profiling before they are able to generate models for analysis. Denodo and Daman have partnered to develop a solution that reduces the time of data preparation and profiling to 20% which enables data scientists to increase the time they spend analyzing data. Denodo and Daman will share a live demonstration of this capability during the meetup.

Denodo’s part of this solution is Data virtualization which provides real time access to any structured or unstructured enterprise data in a single view as common SQL. Denodo also provides a key word search and indexing engine that enables quick exploration of data that helps accelerate initial data discovery to find data to be used in data scientists models. Denodo is a virtual data aggregation layer that eliminates staging disparate data for transformation. This method of data integration delivers data in 1/3rd the time of traditional ETL, Federation or Replication.
