What is Dbt?
dbt (data build tool) enables analytics engineers to transform data into Dremio by simply writing select statements. dbt handles turning these select statements into Dremio data sets that can then be used to run dashboards and BI directly from these new data sets.

dbt does the T in ELT (Extract, Load, Transform) processes – it doesn’t extract or load data, but it’s extremely good at transforming data that’s already loaded in your Dremio environment
