Companies are finding that data can be a powerful differentiator and are investing heavily in infrastructure, tools and personnel to ingest and curate raw data to be "analyzable". This process of data curation is called "Data Wrangling"
This task can be very cumbersome and requires trained personnel. However with the advances in open source and commercial tooling, this process has gotten a lot easier and the technical expertise required to do this effectively has dropped several notches.
In this tutorial, we will get a feel for what data wranglers do and use R, RStudio, Trifacta Wrangler, Open Refine tools with some hands-on exercises available at http://akuntamukkala.blogspot.com/2016/05/data-wrangling-examples.html
