Data Activation Use Cases

Syncing from dbt

dbt (data build tool) is a data modeling and data management tool that enables analytics engineers to transform data in their warehouses by simply writing select statements. dbt handles turning these select statements into tables and views. dbt approach to data modeling is the leading paradigm for ELT (Extract, Load, Transform). It makes it easy to transform data that has been delivered to the data warehouse via an ETL tool like Fivetran, Stitch, or Airbyte. Census has a native integration with dbt that expands the reach of your trustworthy models by putting them into the places where business teams can take action.
