What do BB Bots do?
BB Bots surface important context about the data – including data quality and usage information – directly to the applications being used to make data-driven decisions. BB Bots save data engineers time that would otherwise be spent answering questions about the state of the data and ensure that data consumers have the context they need to use data confidently.
What problem do BB Bots help solve?
Data engineers spend as much as 30 percent of their time answering and re-answering questions about data. Despite all the time updating data consumers, more than 60% of business users don’t trust the decisions they make using data. BB Bots close this communications gap with automated in-app notifications on data quality and usage.
How do BB Bots work?
BB Bots monitor the data.world Data Catalog Platform and orchestration tools, like Airflow, dbt, and Matillion, to surface key context about the data analytics pipeline. BB Bots surface usage information from the catalog, like definitions, lineage, owner, and policies, and data quality and pipeline health information from orchestration tools. All of this information is surfaced in the catalog and the applications that data consumers are using, like Looker, PowerBI, and Tableau.
What differentiates BB Bots from other offerings?
The flexibility of data.world’s cloud-native Data Catalog Platform means context can be pulled from a wide variety of sources, including 15 different data tools across the modern data stack, and a variety of BI & data analytics tools – with more connections on the way to streamline communication for data processes.
