In Data Profiling with CloverDX, we discussed the value of the new product that will soon enrich our product portfolio - CloverDX Data Profiler. The beta testing has been up and running, and so far we have received a lot of valuable feedback from the first beta build that allows us to further enhance the features and usability of CloverDX Data Profiler. Let’s see what the new build offers.
The new build of the CloverDX Data Profiler introduces a key feature - the first step toward integration with the CloverDX suite. If you are interested in taking part in the development and feedback process of CloverDX products or the beta testing, you can register and get the new build.
The CloverDX Data Profiler has several important use cases, one being its integral role in analysis in the early stages of your projects. The insight into data gained from CloverDX Profiler is valuable for project planning, illustrating the importance of clean data, while offering some direction in the design of your ETL process.
Aside from gathering information during the definition of the profiling job, with this build’s new feature, you are also preparing your resources to use later in the CloverDX Designer. This work includes: defining the database connection and metadata that describe the schemas of your data source. The profiler may assist you in this process. It is especially useful for data sources that don’t include schema as their integral part, such as CSV files.
The second beta build of CloverDX Data Profiler includes the option to export both database connection metadata and a sample CloverDX transformation graph containing the reader that accessed the data source you previously defined. These are ready to be used in CloverDX Designer. You can see official CloverDX Data Profiler documentation to learn more about this feature.
Here is a short summary of the most notable improvements in the second build:
This is our first step in providing integration of CloverDX Data Profiler with the rest of the CloverDX suite. The next stages will be:
