The first option for data transformation is by graphically constructing data mapping. It has its limits but it's also possible to check how the transformation will affect data by applying sample input data. Another way is for users to create the data transformation by writing DataWeave code that is written in a special language created by MuleSoft for accessing and transforming data.
Hevo offers both pre- and post-load transformations. It provides two ways for preload data transformation: Python code-based or drag-and-drop. There are also automatic transformations for the source data while loading or ingestion process.
Hevo's transformations are called In-flight Transformations and include: table/column name sanitation and compression, JSON parsing in destination, conversion of dates to timestamps in UTC format, addition of meta fields, and dropping of fields. There are also User-driven Transformations that include: cleansing, data enrichment, re-expression, filtering, normalization, successful ingestion of failed events. Any post-loading data transformation or extraction can be done through SQL query-based Models. Hevo also integrates with the dbt Core, however, it's still in beta version.
Note: Data loading must be stopped while performing any data transformations.
