Based on BigQuery scheduled views, the existing data pipeline was not built to scale, limiting WholesomeCo’s ability to adapt to increasing data demands.
The lack of version control introduced inconsistencies and errors, complicating maintenance efforts.
Rising costs were becoming a concern, as the existing pipeline was not optimized for the scale of data being processed.
Without standard definitions for metrics, departments faced inconsistencies and misunderstandings in interpreting data.
The initial system had limited documentation and lacked data quality monitoring features, leading to poor data quality and redundancies.
One of the key reasons WholesomeCo partnered with Systematik was to speed up the deployment process. Systematik augmented WholesomeCo’s team with their data engineers, achieving a swift transition to the new dbt-based pipeline.
