The overview

Businesses today face veritable onslaughts of volatile data. The key challenges faced by businesses in terms of data integration and consolidation are: data silos, no single version of truth due to multiple data sources, delays in actionable insights, and associated risk. Increasing complexity of organizations due to the expansion of multiple systems, locations, and the growing dynamics of mergers and acquisitions further add to the problem. The issue is with sorting data before important business decisions can be assessed. This is where data preparation comes in.

The need to convert ever-increasing volumes of unstructured data into actionable insights is driving companies to rethink their approach to preparing data. Data preparation is the manipulation of data into a form suitable for further analysis and processing. It is estimated that data preparation alone accounts for 80% of the time spent in making business decisions (Source: The New York Times). Most data preparation activities are routine, tedious, and time-consuming to perform manually, but can be automated. 

Zoho DataPrep is a self-service data preparation and a cleansing tool with intuitive design and compelling features. It provides consistent and fast results to help achieve data integration and consolidation in your organization. The laborious tasks involved in data preparation are made simple and effective, right from importing data to scheduling for export. The application boasts powerful features such as live preview of your data operations, a timeline of the previous states of your data, actionable insights on data quality, and more. DataPrep uses machine learning technologies to predict users' needs and deliver intelligent suggestions. You can use the suggestions to perform complex operations in your data with a few clicks. 

DataPrep is GDPR-compliant and handles personal data securely. Personal data is protected using encryption at rest, data masking, and tokenization. The application provides multiple ways to configure and schedule imports and exports. Integrations with cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Box, One Drive, and Google Drive allow frictionless import and export. DataPrep also offers seamless integration with cloud database solutions including Amazon Redshift, Google CloudSQL, Oracle Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, Heroku PostgreSQL. You can schedule exports to analytics tools such as Zoho Analytics to deliver real-time reporting and draw actionable insights.

In short, Zoho DataPrep offers a comprehensive solution to cleanse and prepare large volumes of data from multiple data sources and in different formats.
