Now with the Hashboard and Seccoda integration, both data producers and consumers, regardless of technical ability, can easily search and answer their data questions. With the goal of enabling self-serve and simplifying data exploration, Hashboard and Secoda set the foundation to allow your entire organization to effectively find, understand, and use data.

Modern BI is about enabling data consumers by getting rid of technical obstacles. That autonomy is usually harder to provide than it sounds. With Hashboard, you can define metrics on your data warehouse, allowing your entire organization to effortlessly search, explore and uncover insights. Secoda will automatically sync, catalog, document, and visualize data lineage between sources. Secoda will also notify you of potential upstream data quality issues so you can ensure integrity and trust in your Hashboard assets.

Integration Details

Some of the benefits you get with this integration:

  • AI-powered data discovery: Intuitively search across all Hashboard visualizations as well as tables, columns, metrics, or models that feed into them in natural language. Anyone, regardless of technical ability can ask questions and get responses - like ChatGPT armed with the context of your metadata.
  • Metrics layer visibility and lineage: Treat metrics as a first-class entity in your business by elevating the visibility of your metrics layers across your entire company. Follow lineage that feeds into specific metrics, so you can understand the source and importance of various aspects of the layer. Provide shared knowledge and understanding of key company metrics across departments to avoid silos, and understand relationships between metrics.
  • Cataloging and documentation: Automatically catalog all metrics and definitions so you can have a single source of truth. You can also now use Secoda AI to generate documentation for all Hashboard resources. Here’s an example prompt you can use to document a new Hashboard visualization in Secoda, “write a paragraph explaining what the ‘Orders dashboard’ is used for, how each metric is defined, and any other information that would be helpful for a new user to understand this data asset”.
  • Workflow automation: Build custom workflows to automate manual tasks like assigning clean up tasks or identifying stale assets so you can spend more time on impactful work. 
  • Data quality: Build confidence and grow adoption by automatically verifying data assets, helping business stakeholders to always use the most up-to-date resources. Secoda also helps you surface potential data quality issues in the same place where discovery and exploration are already happening.
  • Simplified Data Governance: Get the benefits of simplified data sharing and granular RBAC that you can control from a central command center. Set permissions based on teams, roles, and other attributes that you define.
  • Safe and easy migration: Simplify migrations to Hashboard. Turn the complex, often intimidating process of migration into a seamless, manageable and automated process. Secoda maps all dependencies and relationships so all assets are accounted for. Automatically generate documentation at scale throughout the process so you’ll never miss a beat.
