Data Quality Dashboard

Today, we’re launching a new data quality dashboard, offering a comprehensive view of your data quality rules, trends over 30 days, and tools for troubleshooting. Today, the dashboard shows the pass/fail status of checks, with future updates planned for more detailed classifications and visualizations.

Data Product Usage Examples

In Starburst Galaxy, we’ve added a new feature that allows data owners to provide SQL code samples for their data products. This helps users quickly understand and utilize data without starting from scratch. Quickly run these samples directly in the query editor and, with the generative AI features, receive explanations and context for better comprehension.

  • Active Queries: Monitor active queries across execution stages within Galaxy, investigate query status, and proactively identify issues without needing the Trino UI.
