How do I transform my data?

We are considered an Extract, Load, and Transform (ELT) platform with the "T" happening in external tools. Openbridge believes in increasing the velocity of data access, which means we focus on quickly delivering "analytics ready" data.

In most cases, additional transformations are not needed. As a result, we do not provide direct tooling or software to transform data. We suggest the use of best-in-class "transform" tools like Tableau Data Prep, Alteryx, or Trifacta, offering attractive and cost-effective solutions.

Can I Use Standard SQL?

Yes, using standard SQL is supported. Amazon Redshift, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Amazon Redshift, and others support familiar SQL constructs. There may be some limitations or best practices for the specific use case, but the rule of thumb is that SQL is available.
