A quickly thrown together script will do for a start, but once your data consumers start depending on your exports, you’ll have to start committing to drop-off times, SLA’s, and format consistency. It is time to up your game.
With Tweakstreet, you can extract data, transform it into the desired shape and track the status of export processes in a central place.
Your export pipeline can implement custom criteria for field formats and data shape of the exchange format, ensuring that third parties do not depend directly on incidental features of raw operational data.
You gain maintainability, reduce data exchange friction, and protect internal data formats from becoming a direct dependency that would hinder evolution of internal data models.
