What can you use for data profiling with the Snowflake database?
First, what is data profiling? It can be seen as looking at and analyzing data sources in order to create summaries. This helps gather information that companies can use to help their business.
Data profiling is also important to ensure that your data is truly accurate of how your business is doing by seeing if there are any errors within the data shown.
So now, what can you use for data profiling within Snowflake? Snowflake actually has a collaboration with Talend. This collaboration ensures that when legacy data is migrating to Snowflake’s cloud data warehouse, that it is correct and completed.
However, Snowflake’s structure is made so that it can work with many other profiling tools. Some of the specific tools have been Talend Open Studio, Pentaho PDI, and Etlworks just to name a few but these all work differently.
