Deepening its relationship with dbt Labs, Fivetran, provider of data integration, today announced its new orchestration integration with dbt Cloud, enabling enterprises to seamlessly manage data movement and transformations using the Fivetran platform. Now, with Fivetran as the hub, dbt Cloud transformations occur immediately and sequentially once data is loaded in a cloud data lake or warehouse, decreasing workflow inefficiencies and costs while ensuring businesses are powered by always-on data.
With a fully automated data pipeline, data teams no longer need to run data integration and transformations independently. Downstream data workflows are now synchronized to automatically run upon completion of fresh data load, rather than a set schedule as had previously been the case.
The new Fivetran-dbt Cloud orchestration streamlines data practices, complexities and costs, while also ensuring companies can do more with their data. In a time where data provides a significant competitive advantage, an automated pipeline is essential. It helps companies make the most informed data-driven decisions and builds the foundation for next-generation data projects.
The new dbt Cloud integration adds to Fivetran’s existing offerings that are aimed to help organizations get from raw data to insights faster, including Fivetran’s Quickstart and pre-built data models.

Uniform announced the addition of new CMS capabilities to its Uniform Visual Workspace, to expand the basic concept of a CMS from a single-source content repository to unified, multi-source one. This enables brands to leverage content from any source without writing any integration logic, setting up unreliable data synchronization processes, or moving content into yet another repository. In the Visual Workspace, mapping fields from different content sources is done without developer involvement. Localization, versioning and asset management are now part of the Visual Workspace.
For brands who already have one or more CMSs in place, this creates an opportunity to work with a single content model that spans those systems, along with any other content sources they use – be they legacy, monolithic, composable, or bespoke. With generative AI integrated throughout the Visual Workspace, new content can be created almost instantly. Uniform provides guardrails that ensure generative AI is creating accurate, on-brand content, using the language models you choose.
