Companies that trust their data,
use their data

The integration improves data observability and removes the need for analysts to act as “go-betweens” in the data verification process.

How it works

Mode connects to dbt's Metadata API to surface data freshness timestamps on Mode Reports

The integration allows analysts to present business-users with information on when reports were last updated and their location inside the data warehouse.

Surfacing metadata to end-users shortens time-to-insights

The integration promotes a cloud-based workflow that levels-up how teams collaborate.

The Mode/dbt integration makes it easy to build trust with your stakeholders by bringing information about data freshness directly into all of your reports.
The information is instantly applicable to every report without any manual upkeep - which is great for scalability!
