For those using a robust analytics database, such as the Snowflake® Data Cloud, adding the power of a data engineering platform can help maximize the value you’re getting out of that database. In this demo, we’ll show you how native tools in the Magpie data engineering platform play well with Snowflake, ultimately, allowing your team to do more in a centralized data engineering environment.
Data Warehouses Have Boundaries
Data warehouses do what they’re meant to, they provide a high-performance environment for data analytics. This is an important piece of a modern and reliable data architecture. Most modern analytics databases, like the Snowflake Data Cloud, provide convenient mechanisms for data integration, but they stop at the boundary of the database. For a complete set of tools to allow fast, flexible, and reliable data engineering, practitioners need more tools in their hands than what comes out of the box with most analytics databases.
Magpie Fills in the Gaps for Better Data Engineering
And we’re not talking about just ETL (extract, transform, load). Modern data engineering spans a wide range of tasks, including data wrangling, building and automating data pipelines, and managing and governing data for analysis. The Magpie data engineering platform houses a singular environment for all of this to take place, atop your existing analytics database.
In the video below, Silectis CEO Demetrios Kotsikopoulos will demonstrate Magpie’s core data engineering capabilities:
- Enable data discovery with schema inference, automated profiling, and more
- Organize data with database-like schemas, build and automate pipelines, and track data lineage
- Flexibly manage and govern data with fine-grained, role-based security, and the ability to create repositories, projects, and schemas
- Nimble data operations features allow integration with revision control and DevOps, and manage infrastructure
