What’s an analyst’s favourite sandwich?
- Why Looker was and Lightdash is a big deal for BI - awesome write up from Gleb over at Datafold with a great take on the BI space and what lies ahead for us all.
Here are just 3 of the most popular features we’ve released in the last 2 weeks:
Self-host Lightdash in 2 minutes
Getting started with Lightdash is now a piece of cake. You create your own private instance of Lightdash, synced to your dbt Cloud account with just 1-click. It’s Lightdash on your infrastructure with no effort. Have your cake and eat it.
Check out the new tutorial to get started:
Save charts and share them with your team
Once you’ve crafted the perfect metric and visualisation, you can now save it and share it with your team.
Naming stuff is hard!!! We had a lot of fun working with you (the community) to come up with the best name for a saved chart. ‘Saved query’ came out on top for technical folks but ‘Saved chart’ was voted the most accessible terminology across the whole org.
Want to join in the shenanigans? It’s all happening over in the #tools-lightdash channel in dbt’s slack space: https://community.getdbt.com
Secure Lightdash deployments with email + password
You can now secure your Lightdash app with an email and password. The first time you sign up for Lightdash you’ll be asked to create a user and organisation.
In the next week we’ll be launching plenty of new features to manage your organisation (e.g. inviting your team mates to join you in Lightdash).
We have a bunch of open positions right now to join us on our mission to build the future of business intelligence on top of the modern data stack. We value being a small, high-performing team and operate 100% remote. If that gets you excited, we’d love to hear from you.
You made it to the end! You are truly our biggest fan
Oliver and the Lightdash team.
