Orchestrate custom data transformations in your destination with Fivetran.
Transformations are SQL scripts that are executed on your data based on specific events or conditions. They map your data into a shape that is easier or faster to use in the next part of your data pipeline.
Fivetran Transformations allow data teams to organize, analyze, and visualize data without sacrificing data quality or analytical flexibility. Our transformations run in your destination after we load your data in, so your raw data is always available alongside your transformed data. If a transformation fails, you do not lose data. If your analytical needs change, you can edit your transformations and run them again on your raw data.
