Let’s talk about dashboards
People have strong opinions about dashboards: are they dead? Are they here for good? Why isn’t there a better way to consume data? No matter where you land on those big questions, it’s worth confronting a basic fact: most businesses make big investments in business intelligence tools, most data teams produce a lot of dashboards, and most dashboards end up stale and unused.
Fivetran x Preql
We’re thrilled to announce Preql’s official technology partnership with Fivetran! Fivetran is the premier automated data movement platform, offering organizations the ability to effortlessly extract and load data between a wide range of sources and destinations. Once Fivetran has loaded data from your source systems and into your cloud warehouse, Preql generates reporting-ready metrics in minutes.
The post-modern data stack
The modern data stack has made the lives of data teams infinitely easier. Even one generation of tooling ago, data teams were tasked with managing on-premise data storage and building their own pipelines. Today, tools like Fivetran and Snowflake have made moving data into a cloud warehouse and storing it in a scalable way possible within days. Even companies without a full data team can reliably move data into a warehouse.
What kind of data person are you?
Data titles are notoriously confusing and inconsistent! Personally, I’ve taken to using the term “data person,” as opposed to data analyst, scientist, or engineer because by definition, the skill sets of data people are broad and we tend to put on different hats as needed. That said, data people come in different flavors, and you can usually map personas to a few key goals and the tools and workflows they prefer to spend time in.
