Synq Analytics

Synq analytics, new API capabilities, and refreshed UI

Data governance analytics

To help larger data teams understand the quality of their data, we have built a new analytics section that clarifies what types of controls (tests or monitors) are running in your data stack and where issues and incidents are coming from. Combined with Synq filters that allow slicing of this data by teams, products, datasets, or owners, this gives the ultimate view into data quality across the data stack.

API to create external tests

Data assets can break for all sorts of reasons. Some originate in the data stack itself, and some happen outside. For these use cases, we’ve developed a new API that can be used to create custom assets and tests. We’ve already used this in-house to create custom assets for our microservices, with Datadog alerts that monitor the delay of Pub/Sub queues in GCP. All this is linked to the lineage of our entire stack, which lets us use Synq incident management in our operational systems and infrastructure. It’s a step forward on our path toward end-to-end data reliability. Docs and examples are available here.

UI facelift

As we continue to add new capabilities to Synq, we also took some time to refactor our key UI components and layouts to make them feel lightweight and easier to navigate. Given that our UI presents a lot of information, this is part of our commitment to keeping the platform simple to use.
