BRUSSELS, Feb. 23 / PRNewswire /

Soda, the provider of open source data reliability tools and a platform for cloud data observation, has released the Cloud Metrics Store, which offers advanced testing-as-code capabilities that enable data teams to solve data problems in a more sophisticated way than ever before can anticipate. The Cloud Metrics Store, available to all users of Soda’s open source tools (OSS), collects historical information about the health of data to aid in intelligent testing of data across all workloads.

Without a clear strategy for monitoring data quality, many organizations fail to identify the issues that can make their systems vulnerable and lead to serious downstream problems. Inspired by modern software engineering principles, Soda gives data teams the tools to create a culture and community of good data practices through a combination of the Soda Cloud Data Observability Platform and its OSS Data Reliability Tools developed by and for data engineers . Soda’s global data community already counts Disney, HelloFresh and Udemy among the major players who have deployed Soda’s data reliability tools.

With this latest version of OSS, Cloud Metrics Store gives data and analytics technicians the ability to test and validate the health of data based on previous values. These historical metrics enable data testing to develop a basic understanding of what good data looks like and to efficiently quarantine bad data before it impacts data products or downstream consumers. Alerts are sent through popular readiness tools or Slack, so data teams can be the first to know when data problems arise and can fix the problem quickly.

Soda’s data reliability tools work throughout the life cycle of data products. This means it is easy for data engineers to test data as it is ingested with soda, and for data product managers to validate data before using it in tools like Snowflake. All tests can be written as code in an easy-to-learn configuration language. The configuration files are version controlled and are used to determine which tests to run each time new data arrives in a data platform. Soda supports all data workloads, including data infrastructure, science, analytics, and streaming workloads, both on premise and in the cloud.

“Data teams benefit from being able to agree on a common language that allows them to specify what good data looks like across the entire data value chain from ingestion to use, regardless of roles, skills, or expertise. Most data teams today are organized by sector, and when creating data products, they often depend on each other to provide timely, accurate and complete data, “said Maarten Masschelein, CEO of Soda.” This is why we are excited to introduce Soda To make Cloud Metrics Store available to all users of our OSS tools, as it marks another major milestone in our mission to bring trustworthy data to everyone. Cloud Metrics Store helps data teams understand what good data looks like and how allows domain teams to reach agreements that can be easily tracked and monitored, leaving data product teams free to work on the next big thing. “

Starting today, access to the Cloud Metrics Store is available to all Soda SQL users. For more information on getting started with the Cloud Metrics Store, see here.
