If your company is big enough to have more than one data scientist, you’ve probably got a lot of data sources to work with. Tamr CEO Andy Palmer is in the business of making connections between those various sources, whether they’re internal or external.

Tamr uses advanced machine learning to combine hundreds or even thousands of data sources. It crawls all the available data then makes recommendations on how to blend them.

Palmer tells the story of a customer with 15,000 data sources in desperate need of curation. Another customer needed to combine 300 different billing systems. You probably won’t believe how long it took Tamr’s software to sort those issues out.
