What is dbt?

dbt (data build tool) is a powerful tool designed to make warehouse data transformation efficient and reliable. It’s particularly beneficial for businesses looking to leverage their data for strategic insights, ensuring that the data is not only accessible but also accurate and trustworthy.

What does it do?

dbt allows businesses to automate the transformation of raw data into valuable insights, ensuring the reliability of their data with built-in testing and documentation. This means businesses can make faster, more informed decisions based on data they can trust. dbt’s approach simplifies complex data workflows, making it easier for companies to manage their data efficiently.


Imagine a financial services firm using dbt to consolidate transaction data across multiple systems. By employing dbt’s testing capabilities, the firm ensures that its consolidated data is accurate and reliable, enabling them to identify fraudulent transactions more effectively and make informed decisions on credit risks. This not only streamlines their operations but also builds trust with their clients by relying on validated data.

  3. Faster Insights: The efficiency of dbt accelerates the process from data to insights, enabling businesses to respond quickly to market changes.
