TMMData takes a central repository methodology to self-service data integration, data prep, and data management. Combining all of these interrelated functions into its Foundation platform, TMMData caters to self-service line-of-business users.


  • TMMData Foundation is a self-service platform composed of three core tools – Flow, Fix, and File – that address interrelated needs: data integration, data preparation, and data management.
  • The TMMData platform is built first and foremost for the needs of self-service business users, but has extensive code-based technical functionality for developers.
  • The unified data repository approach borrows many of the data quality benefits of the centralized data warehouse model that was common in the ETL era, but modernizes its capabilities with self-service integration and prep tools that allow for faster, more iterative insight.
