With this release, the company complements existing Wrangler and Wrangler Enterprise product portfolios by offering a set of data wrangling solutions tailored to fit the scale and deployment needs of organizations. Using Wrangler, individual users can get started quickly and prepare diverse files on their desktop for free. Wrangler Edge enables analyst teams to work together to wrangle hundreds of gigabytes of data from diverse sources.
