How Dataform works

1. Develop

Develop your transformations in SQL

Develop your data transformations in SQLX, Dataform’s open source language that makes SQL more reusable, flexible and organised.
Seamlessly create tables, define dependencies, add documentation and more.

Work as a team

Develop in a rich web IDE and share links with your team.
User can develop simultaneously from their own branches and isolated schemas.

2. Adopt software engineering best practices

Version control

Dataform integrates with Git via Github and other Git providers.
Each user can work from development environments to develop new tables without affecting everyone else.

Automate data quality testing

You can’t make informed decisions if you don’t trust your underlying data. Write tests against your input raw data and the output of data transformations, with issues triggering alerts before they hit your analytics.

Safe deployments

With Dataform, your team can deploy on isolated schema while developing and use CI/CD to integrate new changes safely.

3. Orchestrate

Scheduling made easy

Tell Dataform how often you want your datasets to update and it will do the rest.
Dataform builds a dependency tree (DAG) of all your datasets and makes sure your datasets are updated in the right order.

Notifications and logging

Dataform alerts you when potential errors error occurs and gives you detailed logs so you can fix issues quickly.

4. Use your data

Reliable data for your analytics

Use reliable and up to date datasets for all your analytical purposes.
All your data definitions are stored in a single repository, accessible by all your entire team.

Catalog your data and improve discovery

Catalog data across your Dataform project and your data warehouse for your entire company to find, understand and use to make data driven decisions.
