We have some fantastic news to share with you today. But first, let's take a quick detour to discuss DBT - an acronym that's been creating waves in the data analytics world.
DBT, which stands for Data Build Tool, is an open-source software that allows data analysts to transform data in their warehouses more effectively. It's a tool that makes maintaining data transformation simple. With DBT, data analysts can perform complex data manipulations using just SQL, so your ELT pipelines are more transparent, efficient, and robust.
We're thrilled to announce that MovingLake has just launched support for DBT! And guess what? We are offering this at absolutely no extra cost. With MovingLake and DBT, you not only have access to our extensive offering of Connectors, but to a more customized and powerful Data Analysis experience. Also, your DBT models are defined right from a Github Repository that you own, so you have total control and customization.
Firstly, you will need to log into your MovingLake Account. Once logged in, navigate to the settings page. From here, you can connect to your Github Account, and authorize the organization that will own the repository. Here's a screenshot to guide you through:
Next, head over to your destinations page and click on the DBT Icon for your chosen destination. This action will create a GitHub repository, tracking the branch that you indicate. You can then specify the required scheduling as a cron expression. Here's how it looks:
Once set up, your DBT models will stay up-to-date. You will have access to the logs of each execution and verify which commit they are associated with. It's as simple as that.
