Orchestrate and Run Your dbt Jobs

Demo Type

Product Tutorial




What you’ll learn

dbt is a popular data framework to transform and load data into your lakehouse. Databricks makes it very easy to launch production-grade dbt pipelines using your Databricks SQL warehouse.

In this dbt and Databricks demo, we'll cover:

  • How to build a dbt pipeline to ingest your customer data sets. (We'll be building the same pipeline as the one available in the 'lakehouse-retail-c360' demo).
  • How to start your dbt pipeline from your idea.
  • And ultimately how Databricks Workflows can start dbt tasks to orchestrate your production run.

Note: This demo will clone for you the repo
https://github.com/databricks-demos/dbt-databricks-c360 in your repo personal folder.


To install the demo, get a free Databricks workspace and execute the following two commands in a Python notebook

%pip install dbdemos
import dbdemos
