Still recovering from Coalesce 2023? Maybe you missed the transformative event?
Firstly, Fivetran was named dbt Labs’ Technology Partner of the Year. We’re honored to receive this award that recognizes our best-in-class partnership and highlights exciting developments to come, including our recently announced dbt Cloud integration. This integration will help all data teams manage, orchestrate and visualize dbt Cloud jobs within Fivetran.
Let’s dig deeper into all things dbt Labs and Fivetran from this year’s event.
Fivetran is dbt Labs’ Technology Partner of the Year
Fivetran and dbt Labs have demonstrated over the years that they are a best-in-class duo for data pipelines. With over 1,000 mutual customers, data teams from JetBlue, Cisco, Autodesk, Conde Nast and more depend on Fivetran and dbt to get to revenue-impacting insights faster.
dbt Labs named Fivetran as their Technology Partner of the Year at Coalesce 2023, topping off a successful year of growing together.
"The dbt team is excited to honor Fivetran with this award. Fivetran's investment in dbt as a technology and our mutual engagement at all levels of our organizations have helped us create so much value for so many mutual customers. We are looking forward to continuing to build this partnership so that companies and data teams of all sizes can get better access to data-driven insights."
- Amy Deora, VP, Partnerships and Alliances, dbt Labs
"We know that by partnering with dbt Labs, we can automate meaningful business insights for the world’s leading companies. We’re excited to continue collaborating and providing impactful ROI."
- Michael Bull, Director of Strategic Alliances, Fivetran
And, this ushers in a new stage of the relationship. At Coalesce, the Fivetran team announced the upcoming release of their native dbt Cloud integration, coming January 2024.
Increase efficiency with Fivetran’s dbt Cloud integration
Data teams have come to expect a fully-managed data pipeline creation and maintenance process from Fivetran and dbt. That’s why teams have gravitated to dbt Cloud. dbt Cloud is the fastest and most reliable way to deploy dbt, providing a centralized development experience to safely deploy, monitor and investigate transformation code in one web-based UI.
However, many teams operate Fivetran and dbt Cloud separately, orchestrating dbt Cloud jobs to run on a schedule independent of connector syncs.
Fivetran recognized the need for further automation, so we are excited to announce the release of our dbt Cloud integration. With this integration, teams can easily authenticate their dbt Cloud account into Fivetran and automate the orchestration of dbt Cloud jobs upon completion of sync of new data from relevant upstream connectors.
This approach to data pipeline creation increases automation, letting data teams focus on higher impact projects. This enables them to use one platform — Fivetran — to QA and monitor their entire pipeline. It also decreases data latency by ensuring transformations run immediately upon load of new data in your destination. All while saving teams computational costs by only running jobs when new data is available.
Here's what two of our joint customers had to say:
"Fivetran and dbt have been foundational in our enterprise data stack modernization efforts by democratizing our organizations’ access to insights. We’re excited for this new integration and how we can continue to drive efficiency and meet our goals, like implementing AI and machine learning to continue to delight the customer." - Selwyn Samuel, Director of Data Analytics & Enterprise Architecture, La-Z-Boy
"Fivetran and dbt have transformed how we handle data, freeing us to focus on extracting valuable insights. Fivetran automates data movement so seamlessly that I forget it's there, and dbt helps us generate models that fuel business units and drive our BI layer. We're excited to hear the news about the integration between Fivetran and dbt Cloud, which promises to further enhance our data analytics capabilities and drive our business forward by reducing the latency between ETL and models." - Jonathan Paquette, Data Scientist, OpenSpace
