I’m Dave, from Holistics’ Growth Team. Thank you for your questions.
On the flow-based scheduling features, this is something that we still have in our roadmap but relies on a lot of infrastructure that we are currently building so we don’t have a definite date yet, though we are aiming to push it out before 2021 is over.
On the same note, we are planning to release our API and Command Line Interface soon. You might be able to use it with Airflow to invoke the jobs, and thus achieve similar results to flow-based transformations.
On data quality with email alerts, it is certainly in our direction, yet similar to above we don’t have a clear timeline for it yet. At the moment for Q1, our main focus will be on releasing BI-as-code features and one of the aims is to enable version control for your data/BI pipelines within Holistics and should help with your data quality woes.
A lot of these features you’re asking are already available in dbt or similar tools. We too see the usefulness of these features and have been carefully considering our own versions for quite a while. One of the paths that we are considering would be to support integration with dbt instead, so you won’t have to do a full migration over to Holistics, but instead, add Holistics to your analytics and ELT ecosystem and have everything work together. We are still drafting out our roadmap with regards to these features and we will do a proper announcement when our direction is confirmed.
We’re looking forward to bringing you a lot of cool stuff this year so do stay tuned and please keep your suggestions and use cases coming!
