Part 4 of CRN’s 2023 Big Data 100 takes a look at the vendors solution providers should know in the data management and integration software space.

Dbt Labs

CEO: Tristan Handy

Dbt Labs has been gaining momentum with its cloud-based data transformation workflow tools that help businesses and organizations build data pipelines and transform, test and document data within cloud data warehouse systems.

Dbt, based in Philadelphia, sees its technology playing a central role in the cloud data analytics “stack.” The Dbt platform includes a development framework that combines SQL development and software engineering best practices such as modularity, portability, CI/CD and documentation.

In February 2022 the company raised $222 million in Series D financing with data cloud giant Snowflake and data lakehouse developer Databricks among the investors.

Last year a number of players in the big data space established alliances with Dbt and/or linked their products with the Dbt platform and tools, including Databricks and cloud data analytics provider Starburst.

Dbt launched a technology partner program in August 2022.
