As an independent company, he emphasized GitLab, Meltano has the opportunity to grow further as an open source company and focus on the needs of the data engineering market, starting from better data integration.

Data teams today face challenges similar to those that led to the DevOps revolution and the emergence of platforms like GitLab, which now offers a complete DevOps platform, underlined GitLab.

There are solutions for all parts of the data life cycle, but they are typically not flexible, difficult to integrate and do not promote collaboration.

Data integration solutions (ETLs), in particular, are difficult to extend and make troubleshooting complicated; in addition, their limited libraries of connectors force organizations to complete them with customized solutions built and maintained in-house.

In response to these difficulties, engineers and data analysts are trying to embrace open source software and DevOps best practices such as version control, code revision and CI/CD, to increase efficiency and efficiency.

Today, it has emphasized GitLab, Meltano offers an interesting open source solution of data integration (ELT) that embraces the standard Singer for the movement of data and its existing library of more than 200 connectors maintained by the community, together with d

Meltano makes it easier to use and deploy these tools together, discover existing connectors and build new ones.

In the near future, he also stressed GitLab, Meltano plans to add support for open source tools such as Superset and Metabase for visualization, and alternative orchestration solutions such as Dagster and Prefect, while continuing to grow its library
