Modelling and Transformation Engine
The DataOps Modelling and Transformation Engine (MATE) is a SQL-based database modelling and testing engine developed on top of the dbt Framework.
However, MATE offers much more than just the dbt transformation framework. We have added DataOps-specific logic, helper macros, and additional tests and custom configurations, all undergirded by the powerful DataOps orchestration platform.
Modelling and Transformation or MATE in a DataOps project is the "T" in ELT, while auto-ingestion capabilities provide the "E" and the "L." Therefore, most DataOps projects will include a MATE component to turn source data into valuable data marts and other data products.
