How Dataform works

A software engineering inspired approach to data modeling, pipelines and data quality management.


Write data transformations as code

You develop your data workflows in SQL with dataform built-in templating syntax and APIs


Deploy to your warehouse with Dataform

Dataform deploys your SQL table definitions to your warehouse, creates tables, views and runs tests.


Create a single source of truth for your data

You’re left with trusted, documented, well tested datasets ready to be consumed by other teams, or fed in to dashboards.

For teams

An end to end solution for growing data teams looking to scale their cloud data warehouse operations. Collaboratively develop and deploy, schedule and alert when things go wrong.

For developers

Designed for data professionals looking to adopt software engineering best practices. Define, document and test datasets and pipelines with SQLX and deploy to your warehouse with one command.

Define transformations with SQLX

config { type: "view" }

  country         as country
  device_type     as device_type
  sum(page_views) as page_views
  sum(sessions)   as sessions
from ${ref("sessions")}
group by 1, 2

Having modeled data using other tools in the past, this is much simpler and an easier environment to code in. The code compiles in real time and lets you know if there are errors in the syntax. It also helps generate a dependency graph for the data pipeline which is insanely useful.

After using Dataform for a while I really discovered the power of integrating an IDE with an ETL tool. The web based IDE completely eliminates the hassle of maintaining local dev environments.
