tl;dr Open-Source Spotlight welcomed us back to to demo PipeRider, the open-source data reliability toolkit. In the video, CL Kao, InfuseAI’s CEO, shows how it’s possible to profile and test a data set, and then generate a visualization report with just a few commands.

Data quality has a new hero!

We’ve been on Open-Source Spotlight a few times already, and this time CL Kao, the CEO of InfuseAI, was invited to demonstrate PipeRider.

PipeRider is your open-source data reliability toolkit for adding data profiling and data quality assertions with visualization reports to your data warehouse.

Break it down

That’s quite a mouthful of features, so let’s break down what PipeRider can do (I’ve linked to the relevant documentation pages):

  • Data profiling: PipeRider will profile your data source, providing insightful metrics about the structure of your data.
  • Data Assertions: Use PipeRider’s built-in data assertion suite to test the structure and contents of your data profile. You’ll be alerted when your data assertions fail.
  • Visualization Report: From the data profile, PipeRider will create an HTML report that shows the structure of your data source, including test results.
  • Report Comparison: Compare past data profiling reports to see how your data source has changed between runs.
  • Supported Data Warehouses: SQLite, Postgres, Snowflake, and dbt are supported (PipeRider v0.6), with BigQuery and Redshift support just days away (PipeRider v0.7). And you can find more data source on Supported Data Sources documentation.

Open Source Spotlight, the video series by the community continues to give back to the open-source community by providing a platform for projects to demo what they’re working on. Definitely check out the YouTube channel if you’re involved in data and/or machine learning.

How to get started with data reliability
