Roadmap

With each release we will be adding more Data Vault 2.0 table templates, helpful macros and productivity enhancements. We hope to tailor new features to the requirements of our community, making the package the best, and most useful it can be.

We will be releasing changes incrementally, so you can reap the benefits as soon as features are developed.

Manage metadata at scale

We are developing an open-source CLI utility to generate documentation placeholders (YAML, Markdown) for the dbt docs site generated by dbt, to assist in documenting Data Vault systems generated by dbtvault.

We also have plans to extend this tool to:

  • Generate dbtvault models
  • Ingest metadata generated by tools such as Erwin DM, WhereScape and more, to fill in those documentation placeholders.

Development is still ongoing, and we are continually adding more and more features. If you have any ideas, or are interested in hearing more, contact Datavault directly via Slack or email.

Coming soon in v0.7.7

  • Extended Record Tracking Satellites (XTS)
  • Out of Sequence capabilities for standard satellites. Handle late-arriving records.

Coming soon in v0.8.0

These features have been planned for the next major release.

  • Google BigQuery Support

  • Initially Hubs and Links

  • We will incrementally build up big query support in v0.8.x versions
