Fast Forward Through the “Dirty Work” of Data Analysis: New Python Data Import and Manipulation Tool Makes Short Work of Data Munging Drudgery

Whether you are a data scientist, quantitative analyst, or an engineer, or if you are evaluating consumer purchase behavior, stock portfolios, or design simulation results, your data analysis workflow probably looks a lot like this:

Acquire > Wrangle > Analyze and Model > Share and Refine > Publish

The problem is that often 50 to 80 percent of time is spent wading through the tedium of the first two steps – acquiring and wrangling data – before even getting to the real work of analysis and insight. (See The New York Times, For Big-Data Scientists, ‘Janitor Work’ Is Key Hurdle to Insights)
